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.
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.
