Lovely staff and people. Beds need an upgrade

An amazing hotel with perfect views. Staff was great. Very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.

gorgeous view- nice size rooms

The best hotel EVER!

This hotel is a gem. We came back five years later and wouldn’t stay anywhere else in the area. The views are amazing, the rooms are modern and beautiful, the pool and restaurant area large and open, everything you’d hope for.

well-integrated into the nature. amazing views. very helpful staff. very nicely done decoration with furniture (a little retro).

The only thing good about this property was the view. However, our room was blocked by shrubs and we could see the view even though we paid for an ocean view room. The bathroom in the room was in the bedroom. There was no privacy at all. The bed was uncomfortable and the room was old. The bathroom area was cement and painted black. This hotel is not worth the price you pay. You are only paying for the view.

Great location, amazing views and the best staff and service. Jason, William, Andrey, Marin, Byron were focused on making sure that our stay is memorable and comfortable. We were traveling with 9 month old baby and Jason helped us in ways no other hotel in our experience would ever do. True hospitality and genuinely nice people running the hotel. Would highly recommend everyone

The staff went above and beyond to make our stay great - HIGHLY recommend this property for your vacation.

The view is the best you'll see anywhere. We called our room "paradise in the sky." Our kids loved the pools. The restaurant was delicious, including the breakfast buffet. Perfect place for a family. And the staff could not be kinder!! Maybe my favorite hotel ever, anywhere in the world.

Beautiful grounds! The hotel is the best I’ve ever experienced. I will be back for more.

Hotel is great .... view from the pool, restaurant and bar is amazing. Might be the best in Manuel Antonio!

Great location, close to the beach. very nice view of the ocean from the room and pool area. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Very quiet. Modern and spacious rooms. Monkeys and birds come to visit in the morning and afternoon. Would highly Recommend!

We would definitely recommend the La Mariposa Hotel. Most rooms recently renovated, amazing amenities, really enjoyed the swim-up bars in the pool and the infinity pools. Staff was nice and friendly.

friendly staff, excellent breakfast and dinner. Nice view, everything was perfect.

Beautiful views, friendly staff, lush gardens.....

Room was not what was shown on website and the bed was so uncomfortable I had a bad back for days!! The view is stunning and the location is good but service was horrible and spotty WiFi! Unfortunately I would not stay here again

Beautiful views of Espadilla beach and La Catedral. Great pool and very friendly staff. Would recommend as on of the nicest places to stay in MA

Dear Anonymous. Thank you for staying at La Mariposa and thank you for your review. It is always important to have this reports before you leave the hotel, so we could be able to take action and solve your problem. Please keep in mind that the hotel is always in the best disposition to attend your need at the time when you notify our front desk, we would solve easy and quick your complains. Based on your description it seems that you stayed in another hotel and not in La Mariposa since we do not have a room that meets these characteristics. Pura Vida, Manfred Arias Guest Relations Manager Hotel La Mariposa
