La Maripose is a beautiful colonial style hotel with all modern amenities. All or most rooms afford stunning vistas of the coast and the azure ocean beyond. They also have private balconies or terraces where one can easily spend several hours lazing away if disinclined to venture out. The rooms are also furnished with charming local (looking) hand carved wooden furniture which perfectly complement the colonial ambience. An elaborate breakfast spread with Continental, American and local offerings in a partly covered terrace is included in the tariff. The hotel also arranges competitively priced tours to local attractions and the staff are friendly and forthcoming with valuable advice. I would have given it a perfect 5 stars had our room air-conditioner not leaked on the second morning, flooding a part of our room and some of our luggage. At ~$250 a night I hope the management will take care of the problem soon.
