We stayed in a room with two king sized beds and a stunning view to the pool and ocean. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We got breakfast included. On the first day there was quite a big buffet but sadly the following days you would have to order from a menu, but this is because they only do... More

The hotel is in a wonderful location with a nice view to the pacific ocean. We had made a reservation for a room with full ocean view and two Queen size beds,- we got neither. Rather we got a room with limited ocean view and a queen size bed and a sofa! Not very good. The guy at the reception... More

My husband and I spent the last couple days of our Costa Rica trip here at Hotel La Mariposa. I will say that we may have been a little spoiled because the hotel we had stayed at just prior to our arrival in Manuel Antonio was spectacular...so we were coming off a little bit of a high from that experience....

The place is quite nice, rooms clean, priceless view for sure. The service could have been better though. We weren;t congratulated for our anniversary. I had to stand and ask the waiter to bring us coffee when having breakfast. For this price I expected a lot more.

This was my first visit to Costa Rica and we visited with my mother. The reservation process was seamless. When we arrived we were greeted with smiles and we felt home from the first moment we set foot there. They upgraded us to room 36 which in my opinion has the best views in the hotel. my mom and I...

We spent two nights in the Mariposa in a partial ocean view room. The view was absolutely spectacular and we got a lot more ocean view than we expected. The room however was somewhat dated and could do with an overhaul. There was no coffee maker or water in the room which was a little surprising. The TV above the... More

My family loved this hotel. We got a room with the most amazing views of the ocean and the Manuel Antonio Park. Clean and ample rooms (love the view) huge balcony, great people and very good breakfast. We stayed in a room that was not in the main building. The infinity pool is very nice. We would definitely stay there... More

This review is long overdue, please excuse the delay. Stayed for 8 days while in town for a family wedding. We were the only guests who chose La Mariposa over the condos where the rest of the group stayed nearby & boy did we make the right decision! Location: awesome! Mid way between the beach & Quepos, 2 min walk... More

the views from our room were amazing and the service was good but i think it was a bit dated and without no decoration at all in the rooms. The bed was comfortable and pools were exceptional. Breakfast quite normal and cocktails ver very expensive.
