“Very cozy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The hotel in itself is really nice. Very nice buildings, large and clean rooms. It was a little empty for guests, which obviously would have added more life.

Downside is that they don't have a beach area, since they use it for a beach restaurant, but you can always go down the beach and use some of the resorts.

The resturant serves quite nice italian food. Skip the breakfast though, it's pretty boring.

Good value for money

while i was in Jamaica last year, i walked to mariposa 3 times.....when i asked if i could see the rooms, the cook/ bartender working the restaurant on the beach, who was very polite, stated that the owner was not there. on my third attempt, i walked next door,though tony's bar, and past the villas out to the street. i was standing at the locked gate, which was littered with plastic bags and bottles. i had to call out to a young man sweeping the driveway. he came to the gait. i asked if i could check out the rooms. he went into one of the buildings and came back and said "NO, NOT TODAY". well i chalked up this experience and said to myself, the hell with mariposa! the 3 times i was there, i never saw any guest... my opinion..i am staying away...i will probably walk by it again this...but will keep walking.

Stayed April 2012, traveled solo

The restaurant was just ok. We only ate breakfast but the service was good. The food was only descent though. Ms. Antoinette, the waitress was nice and attentive. Prices were not great. Descent food but overpriced!

I would advice anyone who visit Negril not to stay at the Mariposa Hideaway.You will have no beach to lay in the sand.The owner and the young lady at the front desk is rude to the guest.The food at the resaurant is terrible the price high.I stayed there for 10 days i saw only 3 people having dinner.We tried to leave but because we had to pay for the full trip up front and there are no refund we had to stay.The house keepers were very friendly but afraid they would be fired by the owner for no reason if they spoke to us.Take my advice do not stay at the Mariposa.

My husband and I had dinner there while we were on our annual vacation last year(2011). The food is overpriced. It took a long time to get our meal. We had local snapper which costs us over $20 US. The server was very unpleasant and acts as if she didn't want to be there.

Room Tip: Try not to eat at the restaurant. There are cheaper restaurants around with nice Jamaican foods.

Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else.
I had a 10 day booking that we had to pay full price for up front, after 4 days of arguing with the mangement... i cut my losses and flew home without any compensation.
the amenties and photos advertised on the site were not accurate.
wi fi access was limited to approx 15 feet surrounding the front office.
continental breakfast consisted of a bowl of ceral.
most importantly the staff and owners were extremly rude and unaccomodating.
I understand that issues will arise at any hotel, but it's how the company addresses the concerns that makes the difference. this experience has really turned me off one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
with tourism as important as it is to the island, it's shocking that these folks don't appear to be concerned with repeat business.

Stayed at the Mariposa hide-away February 23rd to march 5th. We were not allowed visitors on the property, since we have family in Jamaica this was a "showstopper", they refused to refund our money and have us leave the hotel since we were not informed of this policy at booking. The photos on the site are misleading there is a very big cement wall where the beach should be, you are forced to use the beach at another property. The hotel padlocks the front gate at night, which is a safety and a fire hazard since the entire property is fenced. Continental breakfast is a bowl of cereal. There is NO WI-FI unless you are at the front office which is a long way from the rooms. There is not a location to sit and use Wi-Fi near the front, in the evenings you are standing next to main road surfing the internet. Cleaning staff and security are very friendly, the staff at the front desk and management are very rude.

Room Tip: No rooms are on the beach
