My partner and I stayed for one night in the honeymoon suite at La Mansion Inn and were very impressed with the room, the service, the food and the entire experience. The suite was beautifully decorated with vibrant colors and murals of Costa Rican wildlife. There is a good sized balcony that overlooks rolling pastures, horses and the lake, perfect... More

For the price this place was very reasonable. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The views from the pool were incredible. The lake looks incredible. Also from the dining area, the views are unbeatable. The food served at the restaurant is a bit pricey, but if you stay on the "typical" and salad portions of the menu it's very... More

Dear Mayson, Thank you again for enjoying our little paradise. Our beds have state of the art Shelter orthopedic mattress and they are a bit hard. We will by the end of 2016 give our guests the choice for this mattress or a softer one. Although we have rarely complaints on this part of the bedding. We are refurbishing the... More

The weather is perfect all year round where La Mansion is because of the altitude and breezy location. While the coasts can be steamy, here you don't even need air conditioning most of the time. The owner and her father run this place since 20 years ago as a little piece of heaven. They arrived from Belgium 30 years ago,... More

I want to look at the lake and have a soda. I hit the jackpot. Beautiful view of the lake. Their bar area has a great garden and pool. I didn't stay here at the hotel or eat anything from the restaurant but the grounds are very nice. So if at Arenal lake stop here!

I want to start off with a piece of advice. When booking a hotel in Costa Rica make sure you specify exactly how many people will be the room. In the US, when I travel, even when I request two beds or joining rooms, I usually leave the number of people in the room to the default. I've never given... More

Dear, Thank you for staying with us. Our website states clearly that the rates are for 2 people. And that we charge only an extra of $ 25 /night for children and $ 50/night for extra adults. This fee covers the breakfast which is complimentary. The oversized bathroom has 2 doors, so you can close the one of the 2nd... More

We were just passing through Neuvo Arenal from La Fortuna to Playa Grande and noticed La Mansion Inn along the drive. The sun was getting ready to set and the view from just the road was spectacular, so we turned around and stopped in for a quick bite & a beer. Our server was extremely friendly and invited us right... More

We just happened to be driving by, hungry, and stopped in for lunch. Great location and incredible views. Food was excellent and the whole family was happy. Staff was very good compared to many other locations on the trip. Views of the lake give this a 5 on its own.

We stayed in the Royal cottage which has three bedrooms and an infinity pool. Perfectly fitted our family of five and gave us a little privacy. Stunning views across the lake. So peaceful.

We stayed in cabin #4. Very private porch with a fantastic view of the lake. The grounds are well maintained. We woke to sounds of many different types of birds. There are horses in the adjacent property that help make the scene even more picturesque. The cabin layout is a bit awkward. The master bedroom is elevated in the entryway... More
