We spent two nights here and loved it. There were 3 adults and a baby in our party and for budget reasons we booked one room. When we got there (in low season) Esteban gave us a second room at no cost so that we could stretch out. Esteban is soft-spoken and very kind! The breakfast was great too! The...

We went to Mariposa B&B following a friend suggestion and the good reviews in the Lonely Planet guide and we were not disappointed. The B&B is very close to the Monteverde Cloud Forest reserve. It is composed by cabins with private bathrooms. The rooms are clean and the bed is confortable. The setting of the B&B is lovely. The service...

Sure glad we found the Mariposa Bed & Breakfast (on TripAdvisor). The location was perfect for us. We enjoyed being in the Cloud Forest. I enjoyed the sounds of the wildlife all day and all night. Esteban was a great host and very helpful. He helped us book tours and told us about the wildlife. The only Quetzals we saw...

This is an excellent place to call home on a visit to Monteverde. Esteban (the owner of the family run B&B) is extremely helpful and accommodating. We were running late to our horseback tour and he called the agency to ensure they would wait for us and made sure we got there without any problems. He was always available to...

We recently stayed here earlier this month (July 2012) and couldn't say enough good things about Mariposa B&B and its owner. The rooms are basic, clean, and quiet. Despite some other reviews, we found Mariposa to be walkable to both the reserve and Santa Elena. They were long walks, but beautiful and very manageable. Like others on trip advisor, we...

It was my third stay in this B&B (1996, 2004 and 2012) and I have to say: I love it! The location is beautiful! The owner is a real nice guy, very kind and helpfull. The rooms are great, too. Besides the really large spiders you sometimes find in your room there is nothing to complain about. Hey, it's a...

My husband and I go to Monteverde regularly and always stay at the Mariposa! It's spic and span and tight as a drum, quiet and the breakfast couldn't be bested. Esteban Vargas and his mother are extremely nice, generous people and the service is top notch. The rooms are in a great location, within walking distance to the Cloud Forest...

This B&B is an absolute gem. We found it on the tripadvisor forums, and there weren't a ton of reviews at the time I went (2008). We found it pretty easily with good directions ahead of time. It's owned by a family who was very hospitable, soft spoken, and helpful. Esteban able to help us book excursions each day and...

We stayed here for 3 nights, 2 adults and our 4 year old. We got upgraded to the appartment, which for us was great. Very spacious, kitchen, separate bedroom and big terrace around.

First of all, as you'll read in every other post, the host, Esteban, is really really nice. He wants to make sure you're having a great time around and gives great advices for things to do. We originately booked for 3 nights but decided to get closer to town after our first night. You really need to know that it...
