“Nice boutique hotel with beautiful view in Manual Antonio”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

La Mansion is a very nice boutique hotel (about 20 rooms) and the view is breath taking. BIG room spotless. Breakfast on the terrace was also great. Service was always excellent. Valet service to and from the beach is very convenient.

The only negative note is the diner; our two meals were disappointing. They weren't worth the amount spent. But don't worry, Manuel Antonio area has lots of very nice restaurants.

Our weekly stay at La Mansion Inn surpassed all of our expectations; we could say that it was perfection, or as Tico's say, "tuanes." Our room was beautiful; each day they were cleaned to excellence, and while newly renovated, it still held old-world Costa Rican charm. After a day of beach, ATV tours, excursion to town, etc., we came home to such comfort that began as soon as we parked the car, all the way until the bed was turned down. The staff was beyond gracious. We especially found kindness and dedication from Jesus, Juan Carlos, Damien, Erik, Jorge, and Carlos. Each man made our stay extra special with sincere and gracious smiles. We slept beautifully and each morning opened our sliding glass doors to a view that overlooked a secluded beach and many trees. As we sat in our rocking chairs to discuss the day ahead, our mood was set by such an amazing scenery. If one has the desire to visit Heaven on Earth, La Mansion Inn is your place. Be prepared to find a peace unlike all others. Many thanks from Lainey and Ran.

Staff here is amazing- especially Juan, Jonathan, and Bart. Everyone was friendly, other hotels should model their customer service skills after these guys! Day after day, we would always be greeted by name, with a smile, and a "pura vida!" Boutique hotel with charming decor- bed wasn't that comfortable and every small move made a loud squeak. Excellent views. Toilet had a weak flusher too- but we called maintenance and it was resolved in moments. Excellent breakfast food, loved the Gallo Pinto and the Huevos Congo. Doesn't open til 7, which is kinda late considering some tours/excursions pick you up that early, 630 I think would be ideal. We loved the breakfast, and didnt want to miss out - so the staff was kind enough to make sure we had to a continental breakfast all packed and ready for us right when they opened at 7! It was orchestrated perfectly and all we did was grab and go along our merry little way! From beginning to end everyone treated us like we were old friends! Love this place!

Room Tip: Definitely take advantage of the hourly free shuttle to and from the beach. You can also ask to dro...

Gracias! Your review was very kind. I will be sure to share this with Juan, Jonathan and Bart, they work very hard and they will be encouraged.
I noticed your comment regarding the bed and I have spoken to the maintenance and maids to resolve this issue immediately. I also appreciate your comment regarding the timing of breakfast in the mornings. Constructive criticism really helps us so much. I have advised our kitchen and head chef to open and begin serving at 6:30 from now on during High Season.
If you ever choose to return to Costa Rica it would be a pleasure to accommodate you again at La Mansion Inn!

Perched up above a long winding driveway--look carefully for the sign--was a lovely hotel where we spent two nights. The suite was quite nice and the view at lunch there was breathtaking; remember to take a table in the area above the pool and jacuzzi. Excellent staff at all levels. I do not recall if there were rooms without stairs leading to it so if you have a problem with that check this out first.

We just returned from a fantastic trip to Costa Rica. We arrived at La Mansion at night. When we pulled back the curtains in the morning, all we could say was WOW. The view was gorgeous!
The room was spacious and nice. But, the sheets were a bit scratchy.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! The food was good. Try the eggs benedict, it's delicious. We had a cute little monkey looking over the edge of the roof watching us while we had breakfast. I would definately go back.
If you're driving, be extremely careful going around the hill-top corner below the inn. There's a horse that likes to stand right at the edge of the road.

Thank you for your kind review of La Mansion Inn. We are always very proud and excited to show of some of the amazing views and Sunsets the hotel has to offer.

We also thank you for your constructive criticism regarding the "scratchy sheets". We purchase new linens for all the rooms on a very regular basis and there are those rare times when the new bed sheets might feel this way simply because it is their first use. This is a good reminder for us to use extra softening agents with brand new sheets.

We hope to see you return to the hotel sometime!

This hotel was recommended by the daughter of my "mama tica" in Costa Rica. It is a real "find." The hotel is located at the end of a road so it is secluded and a bit away from the other hotels... The rooms are spacious and the view is "phenomenal." But the best feature of this special place is the people who work there....Carlos at the front desk and all the rest are wonderful. They make you feel like it is your home. If you viist Manuel Antonio and don't stay at the Mansion, it is your loss.

I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful hotel! From the views anywhere in the hotel to the staff (ALL staff!). Everyone and everything worked together to make this the most enjoyable experience for my husband and I! The rooms are clean and the housekeeping staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautifully decorated - basic rooms all the way to the Presidential Suite! The restaurant has the best chef and wait staff that can compete with some of the best restaurants in the U.S.

I would love to thank everyone personally but there are too many to name! Just know that if you stay here you will be treated like royalty!!! Thank you La Mansion Inn!!!

Room Tip: No need to spend the extra money on a Junior Suite, the basic rooms are just as beautiful and the vi...
