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 It may have been romantic 20 years ago, but it is outdated.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

My family and i couldn't have had a better experience. Peggy and Papa were gracious hosts. The food was amazing as well as the staff. Can't wait to go back next Christmas break. Peggy suggested a wonderful day trip for the family. The hotel is partners with a family who owns over 200+ acres across Lake Arenal. We took their... More

This is a different type of hotel. Many of the cottages sleep several people, so as a couple w got the honeymoon suite, which was very nice. The view of the lake is beautiful, and the place is very peaceful. Wonderful watching the sunset from your private patio. The staff is very helpful and courteous and the food is very... More

Our 2nd trip to La Manasion Inn was February 7-11, 2015. The reason we chose to return was because of the relaxing, peaceful and wonderful time we experienced in 2013. We planned when we left in 2013 to return again. We have nothing but praise for the cottages, the beautiful grounds, and views we had from our cottage! The owner... More

Our family of four enjoyed our stay at La Mansion Inn. The view from the pool is simply spectacular!! The owners and the staff are excellent hosts. They have always responded to our many requests and accomodated us with what we needed. We enjoyed on many occasions canoeing for free on the lake. There's a direct access with a few... More

Although a bit off the traveled path, this hotel was a gem. We had our own lovely villa overlooking Lake Arenal and the volcano. What a view. And with an onsite full service restaurant, we had everything we needed. Wish the weather had cooperated a bit more but barring that, the staff and the proprietors were very helpful. The internet...
