My husband and I were traveling with our daughter and our 8 year old grandson. I had heard that the Mariposa was a beautiful place with the most incredible view of the Manuel Antonio Nat. Park and sunsets in the Pacific, sunrises over the mountains behind. We were not disappointed. It is one of the loveliest hotels I ever stayed in, brought back memories of Italy and the Amalfi Coast. I think that wherever one stayed there would be fabulous. The garden rooms are as beautiful as the top floor rooms in the main building, the view being spectacular no matter where you say. There is a wonderful honeymoon suite with a terrace and its own jacuzzi that is to die for. The big infinity pool looks over a vista of jungle and sea, and there is an enormous hot tub for all the guests.
The restaurant is superb. We ate fresh grilled tuna everyday, and my grandson had the run of the place.
The ambiance in the hotel was so friendly, warm, welcoming. They gave my grandson bananas to feed the little monkeys that visited us in the hotel from the park.
My husband and I walked to the beach via a dirt road through the jungle, a wonderful walk to see birds.
I cannot say enough about the staff and the way they made us feel at home.
We are all yearning to go back there.
A glass of wine on their terrace at sunset was sublime!
