My family's week-long stay was virtually perfect. The front desk staff, notably Byron, Eric and Maria Elena, were the best. The breakfast buffet was just right. Our 3 rooms were well appointed, nicely looked after by the housekeeping staff and appeared to be recently renovated. We had a great 180 degree view of the Pacific above the canopy. There were...

We stayed there in November, with rainy season almost over. We checked few hotels in Manual Antonio ( by foot ) and this one by far has the most amazing views. The panoramic view from the restaurant overlooking the Pacific and Manual Antonio beaches is just breathtaking. The monkeys were a nice touch during breakfast. All staff, especially Eric and...

Byron, the front desk host was very helpul and was able to correct the...

This hotel came highly recommended by a friend. And it was very nice overall. Great room, great view (i had full ocean view). The pool was great, and the restaurant looked nice though we didn't go. Staff was friendly. My main detractor is we went in mid-october, and there was constant construction - for high season i presume. Hammering and...

You have to see it. When you walk into the dining area, after walking in the front doors, you won't believe the beautiful ocean view. Breakfasts are unbelievably delicious, while viewing tucans, cuckoos, sloths and monkeys. Sunsets at the infinity pool or hot tub, are to die for.

We came and dined at La Mariposa to celebrate my 30th birthday and our engagement that happened that very day! They decorated the table with rose petals, a beautiful tropical floral arrangement and a card! The meal was great! The ceviche was traditional, good but nothing special. The sea bass and accompaniments were delicious and the dish my new fiancé...

My husband and I had the perfect honeymoon! I usually do not leave reviews but, La Mariposa Hotel deserves one! The view is simply breathtaking! The pictures do not do it justice.

The view is just awesome, the best in all the zone. The only small pending detail are some outdated rooms, looks like they are remodeling some others, so probably is just matter of time. The location is great in the middle of all the facilities, ATM is a 100m , bunch of restaurants at walking distance....
