Our four day/three night stay at the La Mariposa in early June of 2010 was one of the highlights of an eight-day visit to Costa Rica, our first visit (but not our last) to this wonderful country. After much consideration about accommodations, we finally went with the La Mariposa based on some recommendations we read from travel guides. And, after arriving at the hotel, even our grandest expectations were exceeded!! The view from our room high above the Pacific Ocean and Manual Antonio NP was magnificent and we enjoyed watching from our room monkeys play in the trees and on our balcony. As a matter of fact, we saw more wildlife around our hotel than we saw on a nature tour of the national park. Our particular room did not have a TV, but it was hardly missed with the views we had of the ocean and the wildlife. Our room was spacious, clean and the AC worked very well ... The food and the views from hotel's restaurant were also top notch, making for several very romantic evening dinners. The food, highlighted by fresh seafood, was very good and the daily breakfasts were also very good, espcially the fresh fruit. Besides the incredible views, another highlight of the stay was the outstanding staff. They were extremely helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. I would highly recommend The La Mariposa.
