We just returned from a 6 night stay at La Mansion. I traveled with my husband and two boys (11,13). We stayed in a deluxe cottage which included a king bed, two double beds in a separate room, three sinks, a toilet and two showers. There was also a couch, cable TV, A/C, and a refrigerator we used quite often. The fresh flowers in the room each day were also a lovely touch. We travel quite often and to upscale resorts and La Mansion is now our favorite location. The drive to and from La Fortuna was not a big deal, great road, beautiful views and monkeys!!! It was even easy to drive at night. The cottage was VERY private. Listening to the birds each morning is something I will not soon forget. We looked forward to breakfast each day with the fresh fruit, juices, french toast, eggs, bacon, etc. The staff, especially Chris was extremly helpful. They set our tours up ahead of time which included Mundo Adventura zip lines, a MUST do in the area and the PRIVATE rainforest tour with a local family. This was our best experience in Costa Rica...we were treated to a boat ride, and fantastic horses up to a rainforest, a fresh cooked REAL Costa Rican meal and horseback ride back down. I want to thank Chris for all of his work, plus he helped us out when our son got real sick with a cold. He called a Dr. in La Fortuna and within 1 hour we were at the Doctor's office getting my son checked out. The dinners were romantic and having a glass of wine at the bar was a nice experience. My kids loved the pool and the pool table. Pura Vida!
