A little higher up from Manuel Antonio, with an incredible view at almost 270°. The sunset from the bar is a view to behold. And the infinity pool gives a nice view toward the northwest. We hade rooms 28 and 29, VERY large, with a common terrace allowing unimpressed view to the west and the beaches. One night there was... More

We stayed at La Mariposa for a week and loved every minute of it. The views were absolutely amazing from the restaurant and the pool. We had a partial ocean view room (with an awesome a/c), but we could see almost the entire beach. There was a tree on the very right side of the balcony that obstructed the view... More

Lost my breath for a second when I saw the view. We had a room in the main building overlooking the same view from the restaurant, but even higher! Was amazing waking up to that every morning. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with information about the area and tours. Breakfast was good, but I would have expected more... More

I chose this resort to spoil myself with the views. Which were simply stunning. Easily the best views of any hotel - about 270 degrees of coastal panorama, which can be enjoyed at the restaurant or any of the four invisibility pools. I even managed to get a reduced green season rate for what I considered the best value room... More

The Mariposa Hotel is a wonderful mountaintop oldstyle hotel. Fabulous views with monkeys likely to bound across your patio or play in the trees surroumding the hotel. The two outside bars have great service, pools are infinity style( one is adults only next to the top bar), and birds and other wildlife compete to steal the drink condiments! Grest food... More

Mountaintop majestic views from most rooms. This hotel is very friendly, very comfortable, not pretentious, and reasonably priced in comparison to the expensive competitors in the area. {BTW, the hotel-arranged transport from the airport is a lump price shared by all of the riders at the time, so more is less unless you are alone.} The restaurant is pricey but...

We, 2 couples, stayed in the Mariposa for two days the beginning of August. We think this is a wonderful hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean and spacious and the room service was very good. We detected no smell of mold or any other unpleasant odor and we checked several rooms. The food was good,... More

My family and I stayed at La Mariposa about 10 days ago. It was a long ride from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio (about 6 hours) and we just wanted to check in and get to our room. We had booked the full ocean view room. When we got to our room............wow. First off, the room was the size of 2... More
