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...

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.

This place is beautiful. The greatest staff and most amazing views in Manuel Antonio. If you are going to stay in Manuel Antonio, this is the place to stay! When we arrived, we were pleasently surprised that the hotel offered shuttles to and from the beach, and included breakfast. We also had monkeys on our balcony almost every morning! Just...

We had the best stay at the hotel. It is about 30 min from the airport - $8 fare p/p and perched on the top of the hill of Manuel Antonio. It is at the highest peak on the hill and the views are absolutely stunning. I have stayed in other hotels on previous visits – Byblos and Costa Verde...

We visited Costa Rica in mid July 2012 (mentioned July 2013, but Trip Advisor didn't give me a choice earlier than October 2012) on an REI family adventure trip.

Visited this place all day while in Costa Rica. We loved this place it was like paradise! Good food and amazing view. Unfortunately we returned for breakfast the following day and breakfast was 25$ per person which was a bit ridiculous. But that being said probably the best view in Manuel Antonio.
