We booked a standard ocean view room (10) which desperately needed a refresh. There was a rather large crack in 1 of the walls that ran from floor to ceiling and cracks in the tiles in the bathroom. The king bed was very good however the rest of the furniture was not very inviting at all. The “couch” was a hardwood bench. I did inquire about a room change or upgrade and was offered an upgrade at additional cost. Since we were only there for 3 nights and didn’t want the hassle of changing rooms we decided to stay.
That being said we did poke our heads into some of the newer rooms and they looked absolutely wonderful. My advice is to be picky when you book and make sure you request one of the newly renovated rooms. La Mariposa is known for the incredible views, which certainly did not disappoint us. The poolside bar was great and the views from there were spectacular. Fernando, the bartender, was also an asset to the hotel
