    La Mariposa Hotel
    We really enjoyed staying at this hotel, the views were spectacular and the staff was absolutely charming, friendly and helpful. Its in a convenient location because one can walk to restaurants and there is a little supermarket within walking distance too.Just make sure that you ask for a room with a view overlooking the ocean.

    Great place at this price range and great location
    La Mariposa Hotel was great! If you're searching around wondering which one to pick in this price range, this is definitely a winner. Note, we stayed over Thanksgiving weekend, so just at the tail end of off season, if I understand correctly. Location: After driving around the area a bit, I'd say the location is in a prime spot. None of the hotels around Manuel Antonio are right on the beach, at least not near this price range. Know that you'll need a car, or use the hotel shuttle, or take a cab if you're headed to the beach or national park. The hotel is right next to several places to eat, get souvenirs, or get a drink that are all within walking distance. Room: We had a King Bed plus one twin bed room style with windows that looked out to a balcony and amazing views. Room and bathroom were very clean with no issues at all. Staff: Perfect. People at the front desk were very helpful every time and seemed very organized. Waiters at the restaurant and bar were great. Restaurant: Breakfast included. If you've spent any other time in Costa Rica, it's right on par with what you'd expect. Dinners were pretty good. Not cheap, but not out of line. The terrace you eat on has pretty views. Pool: It's an infinity style with more amazing views of the ocean and sunset. I loved it. No coffee maker in the room. But, a quick run to the restaurant in the morning to grab some to go was a good alternative.

    Good 6,0
    Awesome views, horrible bedding.
    Bedding is tired and uncomfortable. Hotel has a beautiful setting and amazing views of the ocean, but cheap motel like bedding was a huge disappointment as we didn’t sleep for our two nights there. Hotel staff are attentive, but mostly dismissive of guest complaints. They have a gorgeous property and simply don’t see a need to compete on quality. Many better choices to be had nearby.
