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.

Buyer beware of management deception!
I booked the hotel looking at the great reviews. I also always carefully reviewed room pictures and information as I always do. I am no novice as you can tell from my many reviews all over the world. Anyway, I did my homework and paid for the most expensive Superior Ocean View room which was a full $125 more than the Standard Obstructed Ocean View room. Upon reaching the hotel after driving 5 hours, I was told by management that I did not declare my son on the reservation and would have to pay for him. I realized my mistake, and immediatly agreed without a single argument. I was then taken to my room which was the cheapest room in the hotel with looked like a room from Motel 6, with even less amenities than a motel room. I was extremely disappointed and asked management about this in the morning. The manager made a very lame remark about everyone expecting things to look like in pictures but it's not life. I calmly told him that the room size, view, pictures, and amenities resembled the standard room EXACTLY. So, I am not a fool. Then he proceeded to give me a different room, which was also a standard room. I have shared a couple of pictures so you can judge for yourslf. Now I know the hotel has new and nice Superior Ocean View rooms in the new part of the main building. I could see them, and I have also read reviews from people here who stayed there. I am glad for them. Alas, I was not so lucky. I feel like I have been robbed of $300+ dollars extra for a cheap room

Great base - spectacular view!
La Mariposa was a very nice base for my family’s wonderful visit to Manuel Antonio. Our room was comfortable and spacious- though we’d have appreciated additional chairs & glasses since there were 4 of us. The view from our balcony — and from the restaurant/pool area — was spectacular! We particularly enjoyed breakfast (including made to order omelets & pancakes). Staff were all friendly and helpful. We also liked the location- easy walk to local restaurants, shops, pharmacy etc. quick drive to beach. We would happily return!
