Amazing stay and experience.
Amazing service all around. The restaurant staff was excellent; special shout out to Christian! Beds were a bit too firm. Could add a pillow top for ultra comfort. Wild life cake right up to our balcony! Amazing toucans, monkeys, macaws, lizards.

We loved our 5 night at La Mariposa. What made it special was how friendly and kind the staff were. Geovanny and Andres Parras went the extra mile every time to make us feel at home. The gave us tips on local restaurants and attractions and quite simply made our stay extra special. The views from the hotel are breathtaking. We also really liked the infinity pool and the easy access to both the bar and restaurant area. Would definitely stay at La Mariposa again !

Beautiful and well maintained hotel. The views from our ocean front rooms were amazing and the staff was nice and quickly responded to any need or request. The only downside in our rooms was that there was no door to the bathroom. we managed but it can be inconvenient to some. i did see other rooms and they did have a door to the bathroom so i know it not in all the rooms (we were in rooms 18,19,20)

Overall we loved the hotel, especially the staff. The setting was incredibly gorgeous. Almost everybody was very friendly and professional. The food could be improved and the beds were a bit too firm for our tastes.
