Can't compare it to Mandarina, but we loved La Posada.
Its the closest hotel to the park, and its about a 2 or 3 min walk to the beach or restaurants and stores in Manuel Antonio.
The owner, Mlke, is a great guy. He enjoys hanging out with his guests (arranging dinners and drinks out) He knows all the best places!!
The hotel is spotless and the food is really good.
La Posada was one of favorite hotels in CR.
