We just returned from a week in paradise. This hotel is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen. The layout itself is the work of a visionary: infinity pool, lush gardens and panoramic views that are unparalleled. The hotel is spotless; the workers are out at the crack of dawn every morning cleaning and scrubbing the property.... More

Breathtaking views, gorgeous setting in the midst of carefully and meticulously maintained jungle like gardens, which attract birds, iguanas, and monkeys. The multileveled architecture with its whitewashed walls and iron wrought stairs and terraces is attractive and interesting. Each level holds different attractions. The magnificent pool cantilevered so as to seem one with the horizon offers the most enjoyable swimming... More

This hotel is really lovely tucked in the mountain. The infinity pool has an ocean view and you can see the sunset or sunrise. Both are really gorgeous. You can see monkeys swinging from tree branches or walking on the roof! They are really cute! The staff is very friendly and helpful. They provide a van that takes you to... More

We stayed here 3 nights and overall had a great experience. The staff was friendly and accommodating, especially the native Costa Ricans. We left a tip for the housekeeping staff each day, which they did not take, which was interesting and perhaps reflected a value of honesty on their part. We had a room with a partial ocean view and... More

This hotel is in the hills and has a very good view. You can drink a lot of beverages inside he infinity pool. The staff is so... More

What a great place to stay to see all of Manuel Antonio from the highest point. The pool was fantastic ~ we enjoyed hanging out in the water with our drinks, while we watched the sunsets. The hotel is located within walking distance from some wonderful restaurants, beaches, the bank and other hotels. The free shuttle to the main beach... More

The views, the extremely friendly staff, the wonderful food (some of the best we had on our trip), the plentiful and fresh breakfast buffett, the grounds full of flowers, birds, monkeys, iguanas, the biggest pool in the area. Two swim up bars, great gift shop, close to a small... More

La Mariposa is everything that you would want in a hotel. The views are outstanding. The food and service is excellent and because of my travels on business I have stayed at MANY hotels in the area. Hands down this is always my first choice.
