FORCE MAJEURE CLAUSE: La Mariposa Hotel is exempted for the liability for failure to execute arrangements specified herein directly or indirectly caused by or inconsequence of any conditions beyond human control. La Mariposa Hotel assumes no responsibility for injury, loss or damage to person or property in connection with any service resulting directly from acts of God, detention annoyance, strikes, riots, civil disturbances, quarantines, weather conditions, traffic delays, flights delays, government restrictions or regulations. Responsibility cannot be accepted for any loss, damage, or additional expenses due to any or all of the above. All such loss or expense must be borne by the customer.

The Hotel assumes that the clients have access to sources of protecting themselves against such contingencies like travel insurances and other, and they have already taken actions to protect themselves in this sense. However, option to rebook is subject to availability of rooms covered by the dates of visit.

Rates are quoted for single or double occupancy per room and per night. Published rates are subject to 13% tax or applicable taxes at the time if such should change. The Room Rate includes daily breakfast served at our main restaurant. Also includes the shuttle service to/from the main beach and the Wi-Fi Internet access.

The Hotel understands by double occupancy that two (2) people use only one room. The customer must be extra careful when reserving since they have to make sure that understand that commonly there will be either one king or queen size bed per room. If the two (2) people want to have separated beds in the same room, it must be explicitly indicated in the reservation request. Otherwise, the Hotel assumes as understood that two (2) people share the same bed and the client has accepted this as good. When more than two (2) people are travelling, the customer must clarify the bedding distribution preferences based on the room category reserved.

An extra charge of $40 USD plus taxes (13%) will be applied for each additional guest. An additional guest is defined as a person in addition to the allotted double occupancy per unit; children under 8 years old are free of charge when sharing with parents (maximum two children per room).

Check-in time is at 3:00 PM and Check-out time is at 12:00 Noon. However, Hotel La Mariposa will make best efforts to accommodate guests prior to the official check-in or after the official check-out time when requested, and subject to availability and only when is possible (room is already clean and available), the hotel will allow the client to enter in the room before the Check-in time. Likewise, clients must be told that there is a $50 USD fee for late Check-out passed 12:00 noon. Upgrade to a higher room category will depend on availability of rooms at the guest’s arrival time.

Hotel La Mariposa reserves the right to disqualify any person as guest due to immoral behavior. Refunds will not apply under these circumstances. Please note that prostitution and the exploitation of underage persons is NOT permitted in Costa Rica or within the hotel grounds. Guests who do not respect this policy will kindly be asked to leave the hotel with no refund due.
