We spent a fantastic time in Mariposa during few days. Everything is perfectly clean, quite and peaceful! Very easy to go to the city centre. The food was great with fresh products inspired by both Nicaragayen and french food. Rooms are very confortable and well decorated. I really recommend this hotel in Nicaragua!

Very nice hotel, run by a family from France. Nice spacious rooms and cabinas and a great pool. The cook prepares delicious French dishes. I would really recommend this hotel in Léon. Close to city center and 20 minute drive from the beach (Las penitas).

Hotel Mariposa is a nice little stay outside the city center. We arrived by car, and could park next to the entrance. Feels secure with the guard on site. Rooms are all in seperate bungalows. Outside shower is fun. Outside toilet is somewhat weird. It's OK if you setup appropriate rules with your roommates ;-) Breakfast is nice, but quantities... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was lovely. I wish we could have stayed longer as it was the perfect location to relax. The staff were friendly. There was a very homey vibe to the place.We felt safe at night thanks to the security guard. Perfect location just outside of the city, we were able to take a bus... More

We stayed for three nights in this hotel, and it was great. The grounds are nicely landscaped with the pool in the center. It was a very welcoming pool indeed after spending the day exploring Leon, which can be very hot and humid. The owners were very nice and their son is adorable. The room had air conditioning and the... More

I stayed at this beautiful hotel, just outside Leon with my two teenage children ( 13 and 16) recently. Run by a French couple, it is a welcome retreat from the hustle of Leon. The owners couldn't be more helpful in every aspect of our stay, helping us with everything from bus routes to laundry. It's easy to reach from... More

After driving from Managua to Leon, Hotel Mariposa was a welcome relief. The calm, clean, welcoming environment was comforting after a long day of travel. The pool surrounded by chairs and hammocks is the central visual and definitely relaxing. A small cafe/restaurant is right near the entrance, offering coffee, cocktails, snacks, and full meals. The hosts were kind and helpful... More

The French couple that run this place are very hospitable and friendly, just as the locals are. Outdoor showers for the cabana and hostel options as well. Food is really good as well. I would def come again. A chicken bus can take you to town for 4 Cordobas (about $.07).
