When we arrived at Hotel La Mariposa, one member of our group was very ill and the staff at Hotel La Mariposa was WONDERFUL. They quickly cleaned a room and allowed us to check in more than 6 hours early so she could recuperate. Although it was impossible to foresee this situation, we were glad the staff of La Mariposa were so accommodating when it did.
The views are amazing -- perhaps the most picturesque we've ever seen. Our room is very large (plenty of space for a family of 4) and the beds are comfortable. Our balcony wraps around 180 degrees of the room with a tremendous view of the Pacific and the wildlife on the property.
The ride to the beach is about 2 1/2 miles, but goes quickly in the hotel van which runs on a predictable schedule.
The bathroom is disappointing given the quality of the hotel. And the towels are small, worn and coarse. Again, not in keeping with what one would expect from such a beautiful hotel.
But the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, particularly Byron at the front desk, make it easy to over look those details.
