We did not stay overnight in the hotel but instead visited several times for drinks and also Thanksgiving dinner. It truly has one of the most amazing, sweeping, gorgeous views of the M.A. area and that alone is worth a lot. The staff are pretty attentive and the drinks and food, while on the pricey side, were above average. Their... More

Very clean and comfortable room, albeit a little spartan. This type of hotel and the experience they offer is very typical of the 'resort' experience. There is no minibar, kettle or facilities in the room, but this resort model keeps the room rate down and relies on guests discretionary spending to make up the difference. It is a peaceful, well...

This place is a jewel! Not only is the 180 view stunning, but the drinks and service are exemplary. Although a hotel, they welcome visitors to use the pools, restaurant and bar. You'll not find a better view or ambiance anywhere!

The hotel is in an absolutely stunning location with beautiful views everywhere you look. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable. The only aspect that does not deserve five circles is the food. It is overpriced and not very good. However the included breakfast is acceptable. Overall, we are very happy to be here and would...

Get a room with a view, totally worth it! If not, spend time in the restaurant as often as you can. Excellent service from the moment we arrived. Local monkeys, the Howlers, you will hear around you. Infinity pool as well as pool swim up bar. So beautiful here. A place I will never forget!

La Mariposa Hotel is breathtakingly gorgeous and wonderfully comfortable. We booked very last minute because of a change of our itinerary, and we didn't know what to expect. We were blown away by the amazing staff/service (they were all so friendly and gracious, and somehow even remembered our names?!), our huge, beautiful, and charming room/apartment, the phenomenal free breakfast (which...

I can see how this would be a great place and yes the views are awesome. But if your not bringing kids get ready to have them screaming at the pool with no supervision. The pools are on top of each other so there's no escaping it. Things broken in the room like the toilet seat were never fixed. Ants... More
