Great ending to our Belizean stay
Sharon and Bruce are accommodating hosts who pay attention to details. Mariposa is clean and comfortable. The food is very good. All the staff is helpful. The beachfront and the grounds are immaculate. Sharon poured us some early morning coffee from her own pot.

Sensational Sunrise
My girlfriend and I had an overwhelmingly positive stay at Mariposa. We spent seven nights at this hotel and would consider staying again if we returned to Placencia. Being steps from the beach was wonderful. You can hear the calm surf throughout the night and see a spectacular sunrise over the ocean each morning. The owners have 2 very friendly dogs that live on the property. Since the hotel is just a bit out of town, there are bikes available for free to cruise around on. They definitely came in handy. The room that we stayed in backed up to the bar. Occasionally we heard some bar noise but since they shut the bar down around 9, we never found it interfering with sleep. The staff were always friendly and willing to serve. We enjoyed our meals here tasty and convenient. There was one night we tried to sit for dinner about 830PM, knowing they close at 9PM and we were told the kitchen was already closed so be mindful of that possibility. I'll reiterate that the stay was lovely and I would definitely consider returning.

Sharon & Bruce (the owners) go out of their way to make you feel at home. The staff is very warm & helpful as well. The food is absolutely delicious, with a unique lunch & dinner special every day. the pool is exceptionally well maintained & is a welcome daily retreat.

Very nice and the food was SUPERB. Staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating, and the Tiger tree house was neat and clean and tastefully decorated. Comfy bed. My only regret is that I had to leave too early for the breakfast. Location by the airport means that you can sometimes see and hear the small planes, but not obnoxiously so, imho, and they seemed to be only during the daytime. Easy trip into town.

Beautiful getaway!
Loved the location. Very convenient to the Placencia airport. The treehouse style rooms were so cute. The vaulted ceilings were beautiful and the AC was definitely a much needed a perk. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was decent and the drinks were good. The pool sat right in front of the ocean and was right next to the bar.
