The views here are amazing! you can't beat the views from the pool, or the ocean view room we had. Absolutely stunning. The staff was friendly and helpful, but not overly so. Parking was horrible, they do not have enough spots for all the rooms so you end up down below and having to walk up. The rooms were ok,...

It's hard to leave the right review here as my husband and I spent four days at the bar/restaurant at this hotel and overall had good service and decent food. There is one awful bartender here and unfortunately we had him twice. He is one of those people that must really hate his job - younger guy, Jadri maybe. The...

Stayed here for 3 nights and had no complaints. The views are definitely the main attraction. It is close to the main restaurant/bar area of Manuel Antonio. You can get a shuttle down to the beach/national park area or take a short walk to the public bus stop, which runs later and is very cheap. The staff was friendly and...

This hotel, the view, the staff, the breakfast was EVERYTHING. I really loved my stay. The room was decorated very classy and minimal which I prefer. Also, the bus service to the beach was convenient.

Fantastic location and view. Rooms could be upgraded slightly but staff was fantastic and atmosphere perfect! Quick walk to great restaurants and ride to beach. National Park trails and beaches are very close by and we saw monkey's, sloths and much more!

The staff were amazing and made us feel at home. Our room was impeccable and service was very personable. We enjoyed the morning breakfast with a breathtaking views. I highly recommended the stay at Mariposa especially to see monkeys join you for cocktails.

My husband and I visited in November and the fog of was so thick there was rarely any time to see the view that Mariposa prides themselves on so if you're visiting for that reason then I'd go somewhere else. The rooms were outdated and the customer service was subpar. We stayed at a wonderful hotel in Arenal a couple...

Went with wife and kids ages 12, 14, and 20 in December 2016. Rooms were nice - clean but not amazing. Food was good but not great. The pool area is awesome. The staff is very friendly and the location was great. Close to Manuel Antonio. The views are what makes the hotel special.

If you're looking for a hotel with infinite pools and the best view of the sunset in town this is the place to be. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, all white so fancy with beautiful views of the beach. The restaurant has incredible food. And the free breakfast is by far the best free breakfast I've ever had featuring an...

“The hotel did a great job helping us with our excursions for both horseback riding at Rancho Tipico Don Juan and for the guide into Manuel Antonio. I recommend both! The beach just down the road from the hotel is STUNNING and I highly recommend it (bring some colones to buy an icee or a kayak excursion from the locals.). The Marina area was really nice to watch the sunset while the kids play on the fake lawn. ”
