This was one of the most loveliest places I have visited, A family run hotel with plenty of homemade food, great accommodation, comfy beds, clean, warm rooms and everything you needed. Lots of different activities to suit all ages. There were 4 ladies in our group (average age late 40’s)) and everyone of us throughly enjoyed our stay. We were constantly looked after by Tom, Nina, Sam etc. All of the activity staff were so friendly and helpful. Wayne, Mike, & Gavin thank you. Added bonus for us was the weather, it was fantastic for December! Will definitely be back to this hidden gem. Well done to all at La Mariosa.

I had a 2 night stay @ La Mariposa with 3 of my girlfriends, the hotel was cosy & made u feel like u were at home, the staff went above & beyond making us feel welcome. The food was all home cooked just like ur mum would make. Everyone who worked either at the hotel or took the activities were friendly & made u feel part of the family. We had such a fun time & didn’t want to leave, I cannot praise them all enough fabulous set up they have done sooo well. It’s a little gem of a place can’t wait to go back in the New Year. Merry Xmas & wishing u all a fabulous 2019!

I stayed at La Mariposa on 6th and 7th of December this year with 3 girlfriends for a fun packed 2 day activity break.
We quad biked, kayaked and did clay pigeon shooting.
It was the most amazing 2 days and nights.
The staff could not have been more welcoming, the home food was amazing, the bedrooms were, warm, cosy and immaculately clean.
The guys that took us on the activities were so much fun and so professional.
We will definitely be returning
Thank you to each and everyone of the team for making our trip one to remember

Decided to take advantage of the Steak Night deal at Mariposa and it was excellent! Love the quirky rooms here and they are very well equipped with tea & coffee, fridge, safe, plenty of pillows and extra blankets available. We stayed in the Hat Room on the ground floor. Very well heated and quiet. When we arrived we were made very welcome by Tom and family and they looked after us exceptionally well. The food was lovely and the steaks were all cooked to the individuals request. Cozy in the restaurant with log fire too. Would recommend taking advantage of this and the other offers at the Mariposa. It's a great location in the mountains and the activities supplied are very good. Great hospitality.

We arrived at the hotel, checked in to our room and then went for a lovely walk. We had a four course evening meal (menu Del dia) the next day we had a continental breakfast, we were then taken for fabulous morning kayaking in Mula on a beautiful lake, then back to the hotel for a two course lunch. All of this for 70 Euro.

The hotel room was very clean and had everything you would need.
The food was freshly cooked and service was attentive.
The wine and beer prices was excellent.
There was a great choice of activities, quad biking, climbing, kayaking, mountain biking.

There was even a 5% discount for settling the bill in cash.

We would highly recommend.
