This has been my favorite hotel EVER (even over St Regis). The photos of the views do not do it justice. They are even better in person. Other than tours, we felt no need to leave the hotel. The mangrove kayak tour was one of the best tours we did. It was booked by hotel, and you went to a... More

I gave it 5 stars for the view! We had an ocean view room and it was beautiful. We enjoyed the swim up bar and sunset at the pool too. The rooms were comfortable, although I did find the covers a bit scratchy. I would NOT recommend this hotel for anyone who has difficulty walking up stairs. It is a... More

This place is incredible! My husband and I felt like we were on our honeymoon; the room and view are unbeatable, grounds/restaurants great, staff professional. They went above and beyond when my husband got sick and was unable to attend our scheduled activity; they arranged something less taxing. We will definitely be back!

Stayed in this hotel at the end of June for 4 nights taking in our friends wedding. The highlight of the hotel is without doubt the views, which are stunning. The hotel itself is fine, nice pool but hotel slightly tired round the edges. Staff were nice, front desk especially helpful. Only had breakfast and the wedding meal which were... More

We stayed at La Mariposa for 2 nights during our tour of Costa Rica. We booked a garden view as we had so many activities to do and weren't going to spend much time in the room. The room was very nice, spacious and clean with a large bathroom. We were happy with the room although the toilet did not... More

Photos do not do justice to the spectacular view from every room, the pool areas, and the outdoor restaurant. The ocean view is stunning and stretches for miles of blue water. The rooms are big enough but not luxurious--a large shower, clean, modern shower and bathroom and nice wide beds. The pools are refreshing although the hot tub could be... More

My husband and I visited for 5 nights in July 2015. The views from this hotel are likely the best in Manuel Antonio. We were blown away every day. The breakfast that's included is very nice and filling. As others have noted, the beach towels run low and sometimes you can't get one. That should be improved. I found the... More

My husband and our two daughters just spent our vacation at Hotel La Mariposa from July 14-19, 2015 and it was beautiful! Everything about the hotel is wonderful and the staff are so nice! The beach was awesome!

If you are looking for a great view so you will find that in this hotel. Love the views from my room and also from the restaurant and pool area. I also like that breakfast was included. The front desk service wasn't the best. But the one thing I didn't like from this hotel was that fact that they give... More
