My husband and two adult sons spent four nights and did three days of activities. We went to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. We had a great time with the activities. The hotel rooms were of a good standard, clean and comfortable. The meals were excellent. Our whole experience was added to by the friendly and extremely helpful staff who...

Don't be fooled by the unassuming entrance, this is a jewel in the mountains. Laid back, excellent food and friendly staff with fantastic views, this is an excellent value-for-money location. We have been kayaking and laser clay pigeon shooting so far and will be back for other activities as soon as possible. Highly recommended.

A good day for teenagers to have fun while the parents enjoy the facilities of the hotel. This was our third visit to la Mariposa. Very friendly family owned &...

Great to re-visit the Mariposa again. It's a joy to travel up to the Hotel for lunch and take in the wonderful scenery on the way. We had soup for starters and chicken for mains. Can't be faulted as it's all simple but well cooked and the service by Tom was excellent as usual. They do a lovely cidre as...

This is now our third year of visiting this area of Spain. We found the Mariposa, a beautiful hotel in Gebas, on our first visit and have now visited every time we come out. The family team who look after all their guests at the Mariposa are always there to help. The tours they run are excellent, from down hill...

We booked this as a break from the norm for 4 adults, 5 teenagers. We all had a fantastic time. Downhill decent was very good, not for everyone but glad we all done it. Quad biking, if you are after speed, this is not for you. This is a gentle trip around the area with a swim in the beautiful...
