4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Thus was my first trip to Costa Rica and first stay at La Mariposa. If there was a higher rating than superlative I would give it. Room were extremely clean though spartan. The hotel grounds and location more than make up for that. Don't hesitate to stay here!

My fiancee and I stayed here during a destination wedding trip for friends. The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and genuinely interested in making sure we had an amazing stay - both at their hotel and in their home country. Elias, Josue, Alan, Byron, Marcos, and many others all went out of their way to make us feel at home!... More

The views are incredible, breakfast, which was included, was great, the rooms are clean, the staff friendly and the location great.. you can walk to many restaurants and bars. Great value for the money. Don't forget to go to Fred's place, which is adjacent to the hotel.. fun bar with pool tables and good music

We had a wonderful short stay at this hotel, and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio. The staff were all polite and friendly, especially the manager. He walks around the property making conversation with the guests and assuring that everyone is having a relaxing time. The breakfast is complimentary, but it's very very simple. Still good.... More

The landscape and nature about this place makes it very unique. As soon as we got in our room we called for some wine glasses and within minutes they were delivered. The service here in every department was great. The only thing I can't understand is some of the reviews on the food. I guess for some people its culture... More

Spent our last two day in Costa Rica at Manuel Antonio. We stayed at Hotel la Mariposa and simply loved this hotel. Beautiful infinity pool that looks out to the Pacific Ocean. Just gorgeous. The room was clean and spacious with a lovely balcony that gave us a gorgeous view of the ocean. What I loved about the room was... More

The hotel is situated on the top of a mountain and has amazing views overlooking the ocean and Manuel Antonio Beach. The infinity pool and the bar are perfectly placed to enjoy the sites and sounds of the lush surroundings, birds, and ocean. We even saw a monkey visit the pool area! The room is large, comfortable, and well equipped.... More

We loved our stay at la Mariposa, one of the best views I've ever seen from a hotel room. Service was great, everyone is helpful and friendly. Pool is spectacular and great ambiance. Price was a little high, but worth the spend for the view. Food wasn't great but overall I would definitely recommend staying here as one of the... More

Who cares if the rooms and restaurant are not great? Rooms are very clean and you have great restaurants in walking distance. Stay here to enjoy one of the best views on Earth from an amazing pool. The included breakfast is adequate. You can see as many many monkeys here in an afternoon as you can see in the park.... More
