Such a awesome time!!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2015
My first time in Costa Rica, had a great time. My stay at Mariposa exceeded my expectations. My room had a beautiful view to the pool and beach. It was clean, beds were comfortable. The room had air conditioning which I had no issues with. The pool area is lovely, Elias the bartender is the best! friendly and really nice. The staff helps you book activities. The food is also delicious! Breakfast buffet was great. And the food you can get at the hotel restaurant was also delicious! I love Costa Rica!! Overall, I highly recommend staying at Mariposa. Its beautiful and very safe. Quepos is a great town!

My wife and I booked a week here when she was 22 weeks pregnant. It was the perfect place to soak up the sun, relax by the pool or the beach, and drink cock(mock)tails. La Mariposa is perched high on a hill overlooking Manual Antonio. The view from our room (which was a free upgrade to a full ocean view) was spectacular! From the hammock on the balcony we could gaze over the jungle, watching monkeys chase each other, eagles circle, with the sea as a backdrop. The room itself was large, spotlessly clean every day, with a comfy bed and great air conditioning. Sunset by the pool was a favorite time of day, with piña colada in hand, before dinner in the hotel restaurant or any of the great restaurants only a short walk away. The beach is a 10 minute drive away, with a free shuttle bus service from the hotel- this could be more frequent (my only negative). The hotel staff were friendly and professional, and all spoke English very well. Other guests were families and couples mostly, from all over, and very friendly and polite. I highly recommend a tour of the national park, and there are loads of adventures to be had in the area (zip lining, etc). All in all it was just what we wanted, the hotel was better than expected, and we hope to come back again.

Fantastic view,

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
View from room and pool make this a fantastic experience. Breakfast buffet is average Costa Rica buffet. Better less expensive restaurants are within walking distance. Took walk down hill on back street to beach and saw more wildlife than in the park and then back by bus, stopping just a few steps from hotel. Would return here again.

Mariposa

Would recommend Wed, Aug 6, 2014
This hotel has the most incredible view and a fabulous staff. We were so happy staying here! Problem for the elderly would be no elevator and stairs are exposed to pouring rain if your timing isnt good, but this wasnt a problem for us.

Dining

Emilios and Aqua Azul were great restaurants within 5 minute walk of the hotel. All restaurants we tried were great and a short taxi ride if too far to walk.

That VIEW

Would recommend Mon, Aug 4, 2014
We had a wonderful time at La Mariposa. I was on a weekend vacation with my friends on our study abroad trip. We have been studying on the east of Costa Rica and decided we need to escape the rainy season of the rainy rainforest. There were 10 of us in 3 rooms. We are all around age 21. The view does not get any better. We were in a standard partial ocean view room and it was phenomenal regardless. The breakfast was to die for and the pools were A grade. The accessibility to the ocean and Manuel Antonio park was very simple. There were a couple of great outdoor bars around that made for 2 great nights. We even were able to be picked up from the hotel for jet skiing tour and surf lessons. Our greatest problems could be narrowed down to the functionality of the room. After the first night, our sink was not draining. In one of our rooms, the water pressure was virtually nonexistent. The hot water also ran out quickly, so be sure to grab first shower. Overall, we are young adults, so we were not inclined to complain too much, but just a couple of details that made it not as luxurious as we were hoping for the cost. The amenities outside the rooms however made the hotel more than worth it. There are not enough words or pictures that could describe the view.

can't beat the view

Would recommend Thu, Jul 31, 2014
The view was awesome! The hotel is lovely and the staff as friendly as can be. They stored our bags after we checked out, gave us towels and use of all facilities on that day as well. Super nice. Pool bar was great. The only downside was that the "hot tub" isn't actually a hot tub but a pool that is heated by solar power. It's warm for certain but the water will not be hot if that matters to you. It didn't matter to us because the place was beautiful. Easy access to food, beach, etc. Recommend without reservation.

Attractions

The walk to the beach through the jungle was all downhill through rough terrain but well worth it. If you take a cab back to the hotel, get the price before you get in the cab!

Wonderful place and people

Would recommend Mon, Feb 17, 2014
Very nice accommodations. Our room was actually a little casa overlooking the coastline. Kept exceptionally clean inside and out. The gardens were lovely and the grounds were very nicely maintained. Breakfast which was included was consistently good everyday. The staff was both friendly and helpful. We never had to ask twice for anything. They helped arrange transportation to and from airport and taxis while we were there. No complaints, but a small refrigerator in the room would have been a great addition though!

Stayed at the Mariposa for 4 nights, with a partial view of the ocean. Rooms clean and basic. Bathroom slightly unusual - toilet one end of room, shower round the corner! Good breakfeast buffet. Staff friendly. Wifi reception weak. Shop has good quality souvenirs, cheaper than others.

Dining

El Wagon - serving hot dogs, pizzas and burgers. El Avion (look for the plane!) - serving a good selection of food.
