“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

"Memorable" is the most accurate word to describe our experience at La Mansion. As amazing as the views were from almost every angle at this boutique treasure, we found its finest quality to be its staff. From beginning to end of our stay at La Mansion, we were treated more like family than hotel guests. Along with spacious and immaculately clean rooms and delicious breakfasts (the raisin bread French toast was to die for!), we couldn't have asked for anything more...except perhaps a few more days at this wonderful hotel.

Room Tip: Room #4 was wonderful...with a balcony (and grassy lounging area)...and a view too exquisite to desc...

The staff at La Mansion Inn were incredible. They went out of their way to make my vacation the best it could be. I had 2 tours get cancelled at the last minuet and they were able to book me on new tours, which turned out to be a blast!

When I arrived, I was escorted to my room and to my surprise, I was upgraded from a standard room to Penthouse #4! I was thrilled, as I've never stayed in a luxury room before. The views were simply incredible. I enjoyed looking out as the sun was setting each day. The bed was super comfortable, and the TV worked well too. Overall, I had a great experience at this hotel thanks to the amazing staff and wonderful accommodations!

Traveled as a couple and we stayed in a room with an amazing view and balcony. The staff were very helpful and nice like all Costa Ricans. The room was spacious. The only gripe downside was that the shower pressure was pretty low. Breakfast was delicious. I ordered the same thing every day, a white egg omelet that came with fruit and whole wheat toast. The service was pretty good. It only got busy our last day but they still did a pretty good job keeping up. There was a lizard out there most mornings which was fun. We actually saw sloths and monkeys on the power lines near the hotel too! We didn't eat any other meals there so can't comment. The pool and swim-up bar had great views. The bat cave bar was definitely fun. My boyfriend got a kick out of it and Jonathon, the bartender, is super friendly and fun to talk with. The walk to the nearby small beach Playa Biesanz is a bit a hike at times but very doable and it's nice, being more secluded. The main beaches were definitely bigger and more crowded but worth it, especially the ones in the park. The shuttle was helpful getting back one day after we had a tour of the park and decided to stay at the beach. We used taxis to get around at night and we always the same driver who actually was the one to point out the animals. Overall it was a great time!

It's surprising to see some commenting about the hotel being old, needing paint, etc. We found that to be part of its charm. The rooms were beautiful and clean and the staff was incredibly friendly, plus we received complementary breakfast each morning, which was delicious.

Great location; you can in fact walk to the beach (about a 20 min walk) via a downhill path minutes away from the hotel, but suggest taking the complementary shuttle service on your way back since the walk is all up hill.

NB: check in times are at 2pm. If you arrive early, you may find yourself waiting a bit...

Amazing view. AC works. Beads great. Staff amazing. Extremely clean. Love the hotel. It is very hot here and bring your checkbook. Eating and drinking in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica is more expensive than NYC, Hawaii or London.

We appreciate you kind review of La Mansion Inn. We always strive to offer the very best of service when it comes to quality and excellence. While it is true, many places in Manuel Antonio can be more expensive, there are always options and ways to save. We always try to give our guests a varied selection of places to go, as many do arrive on a limited budget. One of the best times and least expensive times to visit Costa Rica is during the "Low Season" which runs from May through November. Our hotel rates are also lower during this time.

This hotel was ok but definitely not the greatest. I don't think it was worth the money. Next time we will probably look for a different hotel. I could tell once it had been the new and modern hotel. They haven't kept up with the times.

The facilities of the La Mansion Inn are constantly being upgraded to reflect the changing tastes of our guests. The main building of the hotel is only 12 years old while the other wings only were added 6 and 4 years ago.. However, what was "in" or modern 12 years ago is no longer in vogue so we basically offer three different styles of rooms/suites, rustic, modern and contemporary all according to the pocketbook of our guests - from a "simple" bedrooms to extravagant suites. We pay close attention to comments such as yours and constantly evaluate our facilities to be sure they reflect the needs of the vast majority of our guests.

Great location, fantastic ambiance! Very spacious room with great view. Staff is responsive & eager to please! Convenient location to the national park. Very little wait for shuttles/taxis to Quepos/Marina/shops/restaurants. Menu is somewhat limited, but what they've got is good......the fruit (especially pineapple) alone is well worth it!
