This is my second time here in hotel mariposa. We had a great time during our first stay but this time we have enjoyed the experience even more. I have no complaints whatsoever. Attentive staff, relaxing atmosphere, beautiful garden and well maintained clean rooms make this my favourite place to stay in Leon. It's close enough to the city to...

We stayed 2 nights in a cabana which was surprisingly cool at night , very clean with a huge outdoor shower. The grounds are very nice and relaxing with lots of shade and a pool. The owner / operator is friendly and helpful. It is close to the city but feels a million miles away.

Extremely clean and neat, this small hotel is a well run and very friendly "home away from home." The young owners are friendly and very involved in assuring their guests have the best experience possible during their time in Leon. The rooms are comfortable, the gardens and pool delightful. Staff is multi-lingual. Would definitely recommend to family and friends, and...

I love this little hotel. There are a variety of room types all close to the luxurious pool. The multi-lingual staff are actually fluent in several languages which I've found to be rare in Leon and a very nice treat at Mariposa. The comfortable furniture and beds make you comfortable even when the weather gets hot in Leon. I love...

Absolutely beautiful little hotel. Very clean and well maintained pool and gardens. Very peaceful and quiet as it is a little bit on the outskirts of the downtown Leon area. City centre is a 5 min taxi ride and bus to the beach is very close also. We loved the outdoor bathroom in our bungalow and the spa feel of...

We will be very sad to leave this hotel tomorrow. This place is a little haven. We are in a lovely cabana in a beautiful garden (with pool!). My favourite feature of this hotel is there is a little outdoor shower as part of your cabana. This place is extremely peaceful and the staff are so helpful. We booked on...

We really didn't spend much time at the hotel. We arrived around 4 PM, and immediately left after checking in to catch a bus back into town. The bus stop is right by the hotel - REALLY easy and affordable to use - 4 cords each. When we got back that night - we did lose power in our bungalow....
