La Mansion reflects the authenticity of Costa Rica. Overlooking Lake Arenal and surrounded by rolling green pastures, the landscape is beautiful. Equally fantastic are the hotel owners and staff. We stayed at La Mansion for 3 nights. During out visit, Peggy and Leo (owners) and staff (Christiano, Sharon and team) welcomed our family, which included our two boys (6 and... More

Located on Lake Arenal, each cottage is laid out to provide the most privacy while giving one a view of the Lake. Attached to the Inn is Le Bistro Cafe- serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. This must be a 5 Star restaurant, yet the prices are very reasonable. ALL of the staff as well as the owner and his daughter... More

Great food at the Bistro, lovely infinity pool and cozy bungalow to enjoy your stay. we stayed in villa 2 which had room for 5. Great view of the lake. Loved the peaceful surrounding areas.

We stopped by the hotel and bistro on our way to Arenal to just take pictures. Perfect location. On way back to beach we stopped and ate at The Bistro. I had Lasagna and my wife had a pasta dish. The waiter was excellent. The food could not have been better. Their salad was substantial. The views from the terrace... More

My husband and I stayed here in 2009 for a few nights during our honeymoon. I'm only now writing a review because I didn't use trip advisor at the time. It's been 6 years but I still recommend this hotel to everyone! Our room was very comfortable. It was by no means a 5 star swanky room but that's not... More

We were only going to stay for one night, but ended up staying 4! I never write reviews but this place is absolutely amazing - you get a stunning view of the lake Arenal, the Arenal volcano and horses grazing on the hill (see pic below!). The bungalows are perfectly positioned so that they're not obscuring one another's view. The... More

Best place ever to relax and nothing beats the lake view, nothing. Food is great so need to take the car out to go somewhere else. You can take a canoe boat to explore the lake, walk across the street and get up in the hills for amazing views of the area. Super friendly staff as a bonus.

This hotel is billed as a romantic place for honeymoons. It may have been romantic 20 years ago, but it is outdated. We didn't see any couples, and the other guests were mostly above 60. It is handicapped accessible, and has a LOVELY pool, and pleasant service; The rooms are ALL private and all have a private view of the... More

We had checked out of Volcano Lodge and were making our way around Arenal toward Jaco. My dear husband wanted to spend the day (before we checked into LaMansion) kite boarding on Lake Arenal, I did NOT. I was able to check in early with no questions or extra charges. This small inn is owned by a very nice Belgium... More
