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

Overall this was a fantastic hotel!!! What made it near perfect? 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.

Beautiful! Romantic! Serene! Those are the words that describe our wedding. We were very fortunate to have our wedding on the beach at sunset in Costa Rica. To be in love and consummate our love in such a special place is an unforgettable memory for us. We shared the vision of our wedding with Maria Barrantes, wedding coordinator at LaMariposa... More

Hotel La Mariposa is lovely. What an amazing view! Their pool is gorgeous, you are in a rainforest with an amazing ocean view in 180 degrees. Generous breakfast included in a stunning setting. Spotlessly clean. Staff truly helpful. Room was quite large with large balcony. Saw lots of monkeys, birds, iguanas, lovely flowers here on hotel property.

This truly is "paradise". The views overlooking the ocean are breathtaking from the rooms, patios, dining area and of course the infinity pool. We spent 3 nights here and always made sure we were back from our daily adventures to enjoy a few hours around the pool and never missed a sunset, all of which were spectacular. The staff is... More

Beautiful hotel overlooking the ocean. Hotel is located on top of a hill and away from the main city. Hotel location seemed safer than town area. There were many tourist walking around which made us feel a little more comfortable. The room was quaint and clean. Awesome view of ocean and park from our room. Wifi was a bit weak... More

Hotel La Mariposa is a destination itself in an awe inspiring area. Everywhere is a stunning view from the moment you enter the lobby to look out across the expanse of the open dining area to the Pacific ocean. It is hard to leave the pool area with it's stunning view over edge of the infinity pool, to go on... More
