La Mansion rises out of the jungle hills of Manuel Antonio. This hotel boasts fabulous vistas of two beautiful bays and the canopy below. My wife and I honeymooned there after visiting Santa Teresa, an equally wonderful place. Unlike our former hotel, La Mansion knew what 5 star service really meant. We had informed them before we arrived that it was our honeymoon, and as we arrived in our room, there was a bottle of champagne on ice and a fruit plate waiting for us. The room was about as clean as a hotel room gets, pressed sheets, bathrooms pristine, and floor to ceiling mirrors without a smudge. The pool has a swim up bar with great fresh fruit cocktails and food at the ready. One of the best aspects of this hotel was the ever waiting to please staff. From breakfast, to drinks at the pool, to late night cocktails at the "Bat Cave Bar", they were excellent and accommodating. We booked all our excursions through the hotel front desk and when they couldn't find what we needed, they researched it and got it done. Overall a wonderful experience that I would recommend to any couple looking for an upper scale experience.
