La Mariposa Hotel
Just don't go there, rude staff, poor service
- Very rude personnel. It was raining when we checked in and we have to ask multiple times to get our luggage (our son needed medication that were in the luggage). - There are 4 pools but they are a bit tired, and they were definitely not clean by 10am in the morning (lots of mosquitos, spiders, etc). - Extremely slow wifi, our 2G cell connection was a good backup. - Rude staff, not friendly at all. Service at the restaurant / breakfast is really poor. - Breakfast is just ok. Could not get a smile from that person at the omelet stand ! - Nice views, but that's it. - Very pricy for the service you are getting. - The location is good, the view is nice so it's easy for them to get customers and they don't just care about their cutomers. We've been to multiple places in CR, and this one was by far the worst and one of the most expensive. Avoir this one, go somewhere else.

I don't recommend this place at all.
Nice views. Very rude personnel - except ONE person at the restaurant ! Strong sewage smell in the bathroom. Extremely slow wifi. I don't recommend this place at all.

La Mariposa Hotel
Totally worth every penny
This was by far the best place we stayed during our entire trip to Costa Rica. We booked this place after experiencing a fiasco with another place, and La Mariposa made everything right on the world. We were upgraded to a villa overlooking Manuel Antonio park and beach. The room was huge and spacious. The staff was warm, accommodating and helpful. Ceibo at the pool bar was awesome. And the pools were fantastic. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
