A friend and I only stayed for one night, but we couldnt recommend it morehighly! As soon as we arrived, Harry showed us the sloths, which were definitely a highlight. Harry went above and beyond for us during our stay repeatedly. He had helpful advice about what to do. He made us a delicious breakfast including papaya with lime, both... More

Beautiful gardens, fantastic hosts, divine sloths and sweet dog... what's not to like? We loved it here, we loved the room, the porch, the rocking chairs, the garden, the breakfast, the creatures, the considerate, helpful service. Hire a bike and explore beautiful El Valle from here. We loved everything!

Just stayed for one night. As many other reviewers have mentioned the sloths are a unique and wonderful addition. No air conditioning but it is really not needed. Easy access and close to town but away from any noise. Would give it a 5 except that we had no hot water that night. It probably would have been fixed but... More

This isn't really a hotel per se, but rather a home owned by an older expat couple with a duplex guest house in the garden and a flat in the main structure. What that entails is that the services provided are more in line with hostels than hotels. The good: - Fantastic location. Turn right and walk a kilometre, you're... More

We had no expectation but were delightfully surprised at the warm welcome, lovely accommodations. Ursula and Harry are in constant service without being intrusive. A really memorable surprise was the delicious breakfast awaiting us in the little gazebo covered in flowering vines. Our hosts rescued baby Sloths and allowed us to hold one. I immediately sent that picture off to... More

My husband and teenage daughter spent two nights here recently. Harry and Ursula could not have been nicer or more helpful! They suggested places to visit and eat, etc., and were right on the money with every option. Our room was very clean and comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, and the breakfasts delicious and plentiful. (We even had fresh eggs... More

I stayed 2 nights in March at Casa Mariposa--would have stayed more if they'd had a room available. Ursula & Harry are great, as are their 2 sloths & 1 dog. The garden is absolutely beautiful. Breakfast under the gazebo was relaxing & gave a great start to my day. Ursula & Harry are hikers, so they will tell you... More

Great place to stay. My family stayed for a night here. The place is very nice, clean. My younger kids loved the time with the sloths, dog and to hangout in the hammock. Owners (Ursula & Harry) are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for two nights and it was wonderful! El Valle was our first stop after Panama City, it's a sweet little village and Casa Mariposa is a very nice place to stay!! The owners are very friendly and helpful (if you're going to Penonome or David by car ask for the mountain-route!). We had one of the rooms... More

We absolutely loved our two-day stay at Casa Mariposa where we were lucky to get the self- catering courtyard apartment. Apparently it was usually not available for just two days The apartment was very beautiful, quiet and was equipped with everything you needed to have a great stay. The bedroom had a double bed. We were three people, but there... More
