We stayed for 3 nights. We loved our giant room and gorgeous view. The service by the front desk and wait staff was excellent. The hotel was on a large hill, so ask for assistance with your bags if you need. The pool area was open after dark and the bar stayed open fairly late. Make sure you save time... More

What we loved: The hotel's view is simply breathtaking. I felt that I could sit there staring at the ocean all day long. I can honestly say this is the best view I've ever seen. The pool was great and the view from the pool is fantastic. Staff was great and helpful. We enjoyed getting drinks or snacks from the... More

My husband and I, and my mother, stayed here for 3 nights in May 2015. The view from the hotel terrace restaurant/bar is stunning. Photos do not do the scale of it justice. We got a very good low season deal, just $100 per room per night for 3 nights. We booked with the hotel directly. I stayed in this... More

My room was very modern and new. Immaculate. The grounds and view are not to be believed. The food was wonderful and the service was phenomenal. We were traveling with my friend's 90 year old mother and the staff could not be more accommodating. Some access was limited, but that will be remedied by the installation of the elevator currently... More

It was our first visit to Costa Rica. Went to attend a friends wedding who had pick out the hotel. We truly enjoyed our stay. The views of the ocean and surrounding areas were wonderful. We got excellent pictures and videos of the monkeys in the area. The rooms were adequate and the service was outstanding. Carlos the manager was... More

La Mariposa was one of the first hotels in the area, and that shows a bit. The pool area is absolutely amazing. There are actually 4 pools, two with swim-up bars and one large infinity pool wrapping around the hill with stunning views down to the coastline and national park. The restaurant is above the pool so also has the... More

I'm spoiled I'm the 1st to admit. I've traveled most of the world 1st class. When I first arrived at hotel I was not impressed with the facilities but the view was breathtaking. Then I started to explore the place and fell in love. Like I said in the beginning I'm spoiled I've stayed at many $1000 a night hotels.... More

It was our first stay in Manuel Antonio, first we tried the garden villa - there is no privacy. And the villas are connected at the same floor and with stairs to the floor below and you can't really lock the door. I entered by mistake to the neighbors below and it was unpleasant! We upgraded our self to the... More

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!
