“Small and exquisite hotel”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The hotel is small and exquisite. It is situated rather high in the mountain and the view of the ocean is absolutely spectacular from any spot whether it is your room, pool, breakfast area, etc. The room is spacious and nice. The service is superb. The restaurant is delicious especially for dinner; breakfast and lunches were good too. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle to the beach/park area; however the shuttle schedule is at 9 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM and 5 PM. If you want to leave before 9 AM, or return to the hotel at a different time, you will need to take a cab ($12 one way).

I love this hotel!! I have start here 3 times in the past 8 years and fall more in love with it every time I stay! Not only is the grounds beautiful but the service is amazing! We got taken care of and the staff go beyond their duties to make your stay unforgettable! The second time we stayed we got bumped up to a Penthouse Suite! So beautiful! I didn't want to leave. The Bar Bar is unique and special. The pool area is amazing and the view is priceless. I totally recommend this hotel to anyone that is traveling to Manuel Antonio. Have a happy stay!!

This is the most luxury hotel that i stay while i was in Costa Rica.
The food is excellent. At breakfeast you can have anymal pancake.
From the room pool, you have the best vue on the ocean.
The room are all spacious and very luxurious. They have free internet in the room and in the loby.
If you are scare about lezard, they have a lot of them on the walls.
It is not for handicap person because you need to go up the stair to go to your room.
If you go to the manual antonio park, there is small jellyfish in the water. If they touch you dont scratch because you will turn red.

This was our first time in Costa Rica and our first time at La Mansion Inn. We were told by a friend who stayed there last year that it was beautiful and the best, so we were expecting great things and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We had a moment where we did not use good judgement (went into the surf with prescription glasses on) and when we told them what happened. Damian called the optical office and then went above and beyond the call of duty by going with us as the office personnel did not speak English well. This saved us a big disappointment as we had many things planned and my husband would have missed out on much by not being able to see well. Our room was always neat and clean and the food was always delicious. Thank you for a job well done!!! Phyllis & Kenny from Illinois

We stayed for 6 days in this hotel and found it to be peaceful, clean, and very willing to please there guests. It is small, but what it is able to provide in service is incredilble. The maid service is top notch! I was greeted with a new towel art and fresh flowers daily. The rooms are spotless! The decor is tasteful. Views are amazing! We dined everynight at the hotel and were never disappointed, terrific chief, he even came out one night to ask if everthing was to our satisfaction. Jesus and Juan Carlos I see that they shine in every review, same for us! They really know how to make you feel welcome. Bart in the bar we cant thank you enough for finding our camera and returning it to us!! Speaks to the intergrity of this hotel. Thanks for a fantastic trip!

Room Tip: We had room six which is right next to the top level of the pool and down the hall to the bar, Very...

It's a good thing we decided to discount the cranky review from one former patron. Not sure why he was so unhappy because we had a great time. Damian was very accommodating and upgraded us to a wonderful suite that was huge. He arranged our tour for us, took care of a restaurant reservation and taxi for us and worked out another upgrade for lunches and drinks. The bartenders, Juan Carlos and Jesus, were so attentive and friendly and took great care to make sure we were happy...even tried to help us with our Spanish. Bart from the Bat Cave Bar was entertaining and funny and introduced us to a cool drink of the day. We had one good dinner in the restaurant and then ventured to Kapi Kapi which was another great choice. Would definately go back; We travel a lot and are not that easy to please!

Thank you for overlooking the negative review, there seems to be some people that are very hard to please. It was great to hear you compliment our staff and mention them by name, I will be sure to pass the message along to Damian, Juan Carlos, Jesus and Bart and let them know you appreciated their service. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

we live in San Jose and have been to Manuel Antonio before and for this time we wanted a change of pace.. a smaller, quite more private setting for the weekend. we found la mansion on trip advisor where we find all our hotels we stay. the hotel is beautiful, small only 24 rooms but you aren't bumping in to people like you would think, not a lot of people at the pool ;-) nice for us. the food was amazing, all house made dishes. the service was great as well, we loved hanging out in the bat cave with Johnathan and Bart, they were great hosts.
i really liked the beds, i usually have a difficult time sleeping at hotels because the beds are so uncomfortable. the only thing i would say was a negative is the pool bar opening at 11-11;30. I like the sun in the morning and a few others as well were thirsty and wanted some service. so that's really the only thing i would change. i am returning to the la mansion at the end of march with my friend who is coming from Seattle, this hotel will be perfect for us to have a nice girls weekend, with sun and fruity drinks by the pool.
