Wonderful place to stay, great value for money. You can walk to three reserves (Monteverde, Curi Cancha, and El Bosque de Los Ninos) from this hotel, although some are a long walk. Be aware that the included breakfast is at the larger hotel across the street, so don’t expect a home cooked breakfast. Also limited eating options nearby.


Loved this hotel! Only issue was how cold it got at night and there were no heaters. But everything else about this place was lovely.


Esteban was very helpful and answered all of my questions quickly. The location was good for walking to the MV Cheese Factory as well as Stella's (1300 meters total from the B&B) for ice cream, coffee and treats. We also walked to the Cloud Forest Reserve from Mariposa. Breakfast was amazing!!


Estefan and his wife were fantastic hosts


It's family owned and the staff was very nice and helpful. Went beyond to make us feel welcome and comfortable.


Very friendly owners


Estaban was one of the kindest humans I have ever met! He was very knowledgeable about the area! Beautiful location right near Monteverde Reserve, a little far from town but a quick bus/cab ride away!


Mariposa Bed and Breakfast was a great experience. Our room had a beautiful view of the forest and we were able to view some birds in the early morning. Breakfast every day was prepared quickly and it was delicious. The room was really cold at night (out of their control) but they provided us with extra blankets which helped.


Great little place and not very crowded. Could walk to restaurants from hotel easily.


One of our favorites, such a sweet place


Stephen was an amazing host and the breakfast was very nice - Coffee was amazing


Great staff. Super friendly. This family was so sweet. And the mom made the BEST pancakes ever. They made sure that we were taken care of and even cam to help out with the night critters. Great recommendations for where to go in the city and sent us to one of the best places to eat.


A simple but lovely place, with a lovely family looking after us and in a very good location for accessing the local walking areas, shops and eating places. We really enjoyed our time here.


Best place we stayed at - very personal touch, delicious breakfast, incredible value for the price
