The views from my room were spectacular as was the view from the restaurant. The room was clean and bright. Bedding is white. The concierge were always helpful especially Byron and Juan Pablo. They scheduled tours, shuttle, taxis and required Covid tests for us. My friend left her phone in a taxi which Byron got back for her within 30 minutes from the driver. The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay the best it can be. The free breakfast is a delicious feast with superb coffee. Oh and I saw a sloth climb down a tree outside the lobby. I mean WOW!!

I want to give a big shout out the whole concierge team!! they did a great job working with us and we an amazing experience to cherish. Those guys deserve a raise!! This hotel has got to be hands down the best view I have ever experienced from my balcony. Make sure you get the Oceanview ....trust me you will thank me later. Also, we had more up close and personal experiences with the wild life at the hotel grounds than anywhere else e.g. monkeys, sloths, birds etc.. Breakfast was always something to look forward to here. We will certainly be recommending this hotel to our friends and family back home!! Thanks again La Mariposa!!!

There’s a reason why we chose to stay here ten years ago and a reason we chose it again! Perfection! La Mariposa is a wonderful establishment. The employees are exceptional and I’d like to thank them all. Juan at the front desk is informative, kind, and super helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the view is the best in the area. The rooms are large and have been updated since my last stay. TV, sitting area, rain shower, outside porch seats, refrigerator, safe… etc. Breakfast is included. The pools are lavish and even though a little chilly during this time of year, it’s still fun to dip in. The location of the hotel is amazing. Very close to the park, the beaches, the grocery store, and a handful of restaurants. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. Enjoy your trip!
