My husband and I took a belated honeymoon trip to Manuel Antonio in April 2015. The management, service, and grounds were all amazing! We spent 10 days total at the hotel, the first 4 days in the Honeymoon Suite with a private balcony and hot tub. We woke up every morning with the sunrise shining into our room. There were monkeys constantly playing on our balcony and the roof in the morning which was a great treat! The views from this room were amazing!! We downgraded to an ocean front room and the views were still breathtaking. Our second room had a balcony with a hammock and a tub inside the room with a window that opened up overlooking the coast. The rooms were beautiful and didn't seem to need any updating. The rooms were cleaned beautifully with no complaints.
The breakfast buffet every morning was a perfect start to our day. The food was great and there was an egg station with fresh toppings, as well as the typical rice and beans. The pool was a nice place to relax, but we also went to the beach a few times using the hotel taxi. Make sure to head out to the pool for sunset to watch the sun set over the ocean. (Also for a great sunset check out Ronny's Place)
Overall, we were treated like kings and would not have changed a thing! Every request was met with a smile and we had plenty of help planning our activities. We will be returning to La Mariposa !!!! Pura Vida!!
