We went at the tail end of low season so we were practically the only guests, which may or may not have had something to do with us being treated like royalty. Regardless, it was a fantastic hotel with the most beautiful views, clean rooms, and super accommodating and friendly staff. I only wish we stayed longer and skipped the... More

I visited this unique hotel in 2011 and I want to go back to Costa Rica because of this place. The location was a paradise, the service first class and the view amazing! We saw Iguanas, monkeys and "osos perezosos" during our trip. My favorite part of the trip was the huge, costarrican breakfast every morning looking at the beautiful... More

My boyfriend & I have stayed here twice now. The BEST views, wonderful staff, great food. Perfect. We will definitely make this stop a must whenever we visit Costa Rica. It is walking distance to many great restaurants, the beach, & the front desk will help book any tours you want.

The hotel is beautiful, surrounded by nature and friendly people. the best of the hotel is the location, the view and the pool under the trees. The food is good too and having breakfast in the patio with that pretty view is the best. It is a perfect romantic place to escape from the city. Rooms are OK.

I was an early check-in on October 19th and Rebecca was there to greet my party and accomodate an early check-in. I must say from the time I stepped foot onto the hotel grounds I felt like family. Rebecca (guest services agent/front desk associate) made us feel right at home. Upon check-in we were greeted by another employee who welcomed... More

I recently stayed at the La Mariposa hotel with a group of friends and had an amazing time. The location is breath taking with an almost 360 degree view. The staff were all very attentive and helpful. Rebecca from the front office was amazingly helpful, caring and went out of her way to make the stay excellent.
