La Mariposa is simply a beautiful place to stay. The vistas from the room balconies and pool are are just stunning and one of the best in the area. The staff is extremely welcoming and accommodating. When they brought us to our first room, they immediately noticed the air had stopped working and changed us to a larger room with... More

Wow the La Mariposa was fabulous. Extrodinary views, great helpful staff. Food was good and we normally would go out for meals but didn't have to at the La Mariposa. Service was very good.. Everyone was helpful. We will go again. Great time of year to go.

I visited the Hotel La Mariposa in February 2010. We had such a remarkable experience! The views took my breath away. The food was fabulous and the staff was so attentive! The rooms were spotless; it felt like a vacation home, not a hotel. We had such a great time, we already booked our vacation for next January! I defiantly... More

Reading the reviews, I am in the middle regarding my rating. The view of the Pacific, particularly at sunset, with a nice wim-up bar and amazing pool are the reasons to stay here. We only ate at the restaurant for breakfast (included), and it was basically the same as the other 2 hotels at which we stayed (ie, adequate). We... More

I felt compelled to write this review, even though our interaction with the Mariposa Hotel in Manuel Antonio was a couple of years ago... We have been yearly visitors to Costa Rica since 2000, sometimes twice a year! I can say with certainty that our worst interaction with any lodging management anywhere in Costa Rica was with the Hotel Mariposa.... More

You are taken by a shuttle up the most incredible winding road and dropped off at this lush landscaped Hotel. You walk up into the small covered lobby only to keep walking past the lobby on to the restaurant floor to overlook the absolute most spectacular panaramic views you have ever been privileged to see. I mean you absolutely forget... More

La Mariposa was everything one could ask for - beautiful location, charming hotel, room, grounds, and staff. Incredible view from the restaurant and our room and balcony. The food and service was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff are courteous, friendly, helpful, and truly engaged in making your stay enjoyable. We were genuinely sad to leave, and will surely be... More

We went to Jaco for a wedding several years earlier and fell in love with CR. We thought it would be great to try again over the Christmas holidays and have our son join us. I started searching the internet and found Chris at CRV. He sat up the entire trip for us and it was perfect from start to... More

Loved this hotel. The views were outstanding. Monkeys were in the trees. The pool is gorgeous and swim up bar is great---delicious drinks too. Our room was average. It's spacious and the terrace was great but it could use a little updating. We were in the main building and had to hike up a metal spiral staircase. I think the... More
