La Mariposa Hotel, Manuel Antonio

Great hotel - highly recommended!
Excellent hotel with fantastic view

The most amazing view!
The view was worth everything. We had a ocean view room on the 3rd floor and we could've spent all day sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view. That is, if we weren't lounging by or in the beautiful infinity pool. Staff were super helpful and were great in organizing a guide for Manuel Antonio (Dago is awesome!) and transportation. The breakfast buffet was tasty and the omelet station was a nice change from the standard Costa Rican scrambled eggs we were having almost daily for 2 weeks. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend friends and family as well.

La Mariposa Hotel, Manuel Antonio
Fabulous Choice
What a fabulous place. The location is incredible, it's on the top of the hill away from the beach with the most amazing sunset and sunrise views. A sprawling view of pacific from the room, pool and restaurant. The room was lovely, clean, large and with a great balcony giving an amazing view of Manuel Antonio national park and the ocean. It was clean, had all the necessary amenties. The staff were all incredibly friendly, helpfull and welcoming. The restaurant was great, located in the center of the hotel so you can fully appreciate all the views and weather. A little pricy but the food was great, we only ate there once for dinner and the experience was spectacular. The breakfasts were great, included in the room with lots of fresh fruit and local dishes. I did notice some rooms that didn't seem to be overlooking the water, but the road - i woud have been really disappointed with that so make sure if the view etc is important to you that you book the right room. The location is great, so close to a bunch of bars, restaurants and shops (walking distance) and they offer a shuttle to the beach which is is only a few minutes down the hill.
