we enjoyed our stay at this friendly, economical and conveniently located hotel. It is one of the closest hotels to the actual reserve, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. We found that more than 2 days in Monteverde was too much fo rus, so we left 1 night sooner than we had planned. All in all, we were...

the rooms are clean and cozy, if you get to monteverde by car i will recommend it, , breakfast is not so good! staff is very friendly, the monteverde reserve is ony 2 km from the hotel, and santa elena town is about 15 minutes drive, treehouse restaurant recommended in santa elena for lunch or dinner.

If you want a mountain lodge feel, this is the place. It is very close to the park, although the town is a good 15 minute car ride. Esteban was very nice and always very accommodating. The room is very simple so if you are looking for amenities, go elsewhere. It would have helped if they at least would have...

My father and husband and I were looking for something a little more cozy and rustic, and this place is just great. There are two rooms in our apartment style rental, which has a kitchen. Everything is wooden and cozy and Eco friendly. Esteban greeted us and gave us many great recommendations for activities, and the food in the morning...

We stayed at Mariposa B&B just for one night in November 2012. We are happy to have chosen Mariposa. Small and very personal. Esteban and all of the people were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great, great price and value.

My friend and I stayed at the Mariposa Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights and fell in love with the place. The land-scaping is very pretty and the location is perfect. To go to Santa Elena town, a cab ride is only $3, $4 with tip. If you like to walk and enjoy the scenery, the town and pretty much...

This is a sweet family run bed-and-breakfast. Very clean spacious rooms with a nice view of the jungle and hummingbirds. The $50 for the night was a bargain mainly because the breakfast consisted of some wonderful homemade bread toasted. One does not find that very often. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was small but spick and span. It...

We spent two nights here and loved it. There were 3 adults and a baby in our party and for budget reasons we booked one room. When we got there (in low season) Esteban gave us a second room at no cost so that we could stretch out. Esteban is soft-spoken and very kind! The breakfast was great too! The...

We went to Mariposa B&B following a friend suggestion and the good reviews in the Lonely Planet guide and we were not disappointed. The B&B is very close to the Monteverde Cloud Forest reserve. It is composed by cabins with private bathrooms. The rooms are clean and the bed is confortable. The setting of the B&B is lovely. The service...

Sure glad we found the Mariposa Bed & Breakfast (on TripAdvisor). The location was perfect for us. We enjoyed being in the Cloud Forest. I enjoyed the sounds of the wildlife all day and all night. Esteban was a great host and very helpful. He helped us book tours and told us about the wildlife. The only Quetzals we saw...
