We took 3 cabins each with a single bed and a double bed, and ensuite. The rooms are rustic in feel, entirely in keeping with the location. Esteban's breakfast was reallly excellent. It is very close to the Cloud Forest reserve and all the amenities of Monteverde and St Elena. Really recommended

This was the best place we stayed in our two weeks in Costa Rica. Esteban was incredibly helpful with arranging things during our stay and was generally an extremely friendly guy. The bed and breakfast is a 20 minute walk from the Cloud Forest, and closer still to two of the other national parks. It is a taxi ride from... More

Middle of the canopy forest this cabin was a retreat. Esteban was so courteous and wonderful. The breakfast was awesome and the kids loved this place. The porch around the room was well used by the kids and we could see and hear all kinds of bird sounds. The room was clean and spacious. The kitchen had everything. It was... More

My husband was first skeptical about this place despite the high ratings on tripadvisor, because he wanted to stay at a resort-like hotel. But as soon as Esteban walked us into the apartment, my kids and my husband fell in love with our "room". Their exact comment was: "Wow, this is very nice. Doesn't feel like a hotel room, but...

If you want to be close to the "downtown" area of Monteverde (actually Santa Elena), don't have reliable transport, or you aren't comfortable with a word like rustic being thrown around, this probably isn't the place for you. If those two factors don't put you off, I can't recommend Mariposa highly enough. The price was incredibly fair, the free breakfast... More

We stayed in the apartment and it had plenty of space for our family. The kitchen was spacious and allowed us to eat a few meals in the apartment. At night the lights attract an incredible variety of insects to the outside wall and windows. Not the scary type bugs but colorful moths and other insects that I never dreamed... More

The bed and breakfast is on the way from Santa Elena to the Monteverde Reserve, only 15 minutes by car (4wd needed) from Santa Elena (touristic town with a lot of restaurants and shops etc.) We had a very clean room with a great view on the beautiful nature. Helpful staff and one of the better breakfasts we had in... More

This hotel was one of my favorites in Costa Rica. Not too far from the ''center'' of Monteverde, yet far enough to be very quiet. When you go outside and listen to all the noises, you feel like there's a relaxation CD playing. It is about 1,5 km away from the Monteverde Cloud Forest, and it is a relatively easy... More

The breakfast was good with traditional Costa Rican fare including fresh fruit and local coffee. Our room size was spacious and comfy. Esteban, our host was very kind and knowledgeable, so helpful in making reservations. We loved sitting in the hammock watching the beautiful birds that frequented the property. A memorable stay in beautiful Monteverde.
