This is a small BB owned by a Costarican family. Everybody has been nice to us in this country, but these are the nicest people we met in Costa Rica. The rooms are very clean, made from wood and surrounded by flowers and trees. It also has big windows and a nice wood bench right in front of the room...

Ideally placed for the cloud forest reserve - just a 20min walk and just over a mile from Santa Elena so a pleasant stroll with fantastic views on route. Accommodation spacious, simple and clean. Breakfast - perfect fried eggs, fresh fruit and lovely strawberry jam - will keep you going all day. There is a viewing balcony around the rooms...

We stayed here for a few days whilst visiting the Monteverde area and were very impressed by the level of service offered. The friendly owners bent over backwards to do things for us; calling taxis, shuttles etc and they even went into town to buy our bus tickets for us! Add to this nice large rooms wnd a nice breakfast...

Stayed 3 nights at this beautiful cabin. Rooms are simple and nothing fancy but it worked for us. The garden outside the cabin was beautiful and we watched the birds and other creatures everyday. Breakfast was delicious--loved the homemade bread! Esteban was very, very helpful, always willing to make a call for us for a cab or to book tours....

We found many positive reviews on the Mariposa and contacted them by e-mail to start the process. Esteban was very expedient and helpful throughout the reservation process and continued through our entire stay. We only had 2 nights but totally enjoyed the spacious two bedroom apartment. (2 adult couples travelling together) The breakfasts were outstanding as were the views of...

Wonderful experience. Run by a local family with an eye toward excellent customer service who also helped us make reservations at local attractions. Rooms are in isolated units, nearly hidden in the forest and foliage. Price included delicious breakfast with all you can eat "tipico" beans and rice, fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs, toast, and granola served at your table in...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in March and enjoyed every minute of it. This B&B is so adorable you will never want to leave. Esteban is incredibly helpful in booking tours, giving recommendations, and making you feel at ease and taken care of. The breakfast is delicious. We could have eaten the Gallo Pinto for every...

The service was outstanding, as was the breakfast each morning. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. Excellent value for the price. If you are interested in the town of Santa Elena this is a bit out of the way. On the other hand, it is right down the road from the fantastic Monteverde Cloud Forest and across...

A lovely spot to stay. We booked for 2 nights, but we were able to extend for a third, the owners are so welcoming and helpful. We felt really at home, both in their communal lounge area and our own private rooms in the forest. The village itself is equally welcoming and the area outstanding. We can definitely recommend a...
