My friends and I had an amazing experience at La Mariposa. As every other review has said (but is still worth repeating) the view is beyond incredible, the best in the area. The property has a large amount of wildlife and we saw our fair share of monkeys, sloths, birds, and lizards right at the hotel. The infinity pool is very nice and has a great view of the pacific and the rainforest. The hotel restaurant has a great selection of very fresh Costa Rican cuisine, which we were impressed with. Every staff member was very helpful with answering any questions as well as being very welcoming. The bartender, Fredrick, is really awesome, great conversationalist and can mix a mean drink. The rooms were nicely appointed but I think the original main building may need some updating. Overall, the hotel is great and I couldn't recommend it higher, for the price it's a great value.
