Wonderful experience. Run by a local family with an eye toward excellent customer service who also helped us make reservations at local attractions. Rooms are in isolated units, nearly hidden in the forest and foliage. Price included delicious breakfast with all you can eat "tipico" beans and rice, fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs, toast, and granola served at your table in...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in March and enjoyed every minute of it. This B&B is so adorable you will never want to leave. Esteban is incredibly helpful in booking tours, giving recommendations, and making you feel at ease and taken care of. The breakfast is delicious. We could have eaten the Gallo Pinto for every...

The service was outstanding, as was the breakfast each morning. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. Excellent value for the price. If you are interested in the town of Santa Elena this is a bit out of the way. On the other hand, it is right down the road from the fantastic Monteverde Cloud Forest and across...

A lovely spot to stay. We booked for 2 nights, but we were able to extend for a third, the owners are so welcoming and helpful. We felt really at home, both in their communal lounge area and our own private rooms in the forest. The village itself is equally welcoming and the area outstanding. We can definitely recommend a...

We recently stayed at Mariposa Bed & Breakfast for the second time in 4 years. First my wife and I liked the reviews and gave it a chance. Thoroughly impresses, when we got a chance to take our whole family down, we knew where we were going to stay in Monte Verde. I can't say enough great things about this...

We were extremely pleased with Mariposa. Esteban, the owner, was helpful with park information and local area information. The breakfasts were delightful and we had several choices. The room was quiet and we had a view of the forest and were able to hear birds often.

Mariposa B&B is a little out of town, but on the way to Monteverde Cloud reserve. It's beautifully located and more quiet than a hotel in Santa Elena. The cabins are in the middle of a nice garden. If you sit on your small terrace for a while you'll see an abundance of birds flying by. The cabins are clean...

We have stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every single minute. Especially Esteban was very kind and also the breakfast with Gallo Pinto was very good. The room was very clean, with hot shower and a safe in the room. Mariposa would be our first choice when we come back to Monteverde.

Great location between Santa Elena and the cloud forest reserve, good restaurants nearby and Stella's bakery and coop too. Esteban was super helpful, nothing was too much trouble for him to sort out and he is full of useful local information which you won't find in the guide books! We stayed one night in the b&b before moving to the...
