La Mansion Inn is a European style inn with wonderful casitas for guests. We had a two room casita for our family of five and thoroughly enjoyed the property. We had a private veranda overlooking Lake Arenal and enjoyed coffee and wine there every day. Peggy and Leo run a great Inn and restaurant. We enjoyed all of our meals...

Dear, Thank you so much for this gold review. We loved to pamper you and your nice family. They fully enjoyed the hot tub and pool, filled with spring water. Far away from the busy and hot La Fortuna you could enjoy the fresh NE breeze, while looking to the fabulous Arenal Lake. We hope to see you back one...

I live part time in Costa Rica and this is a very beautiful, quiet, romantic hotel only 20 minutes from La Fortuna. The owners, Leo and Peggy are exceptional and very accommodating, as well as the staff from housekeepers, to the restaurant staff. Very professionally run establishment and i would highly recommend it to anyone visiting this area of Costa...

Thank you Jason for this review, and thank you for staying in one of our lovely villas. Indeed, we are only 25 minutes from the Arenal Volcano, over a scenic jungle road with gorgeous views on the Arenal lake and the volcano. Leo, owner

We visited with our 3 teenagers. The cabin was clean, comfortable and roomy. And what can I say about that view!! The service was exceptional. We had great poolside service (the pool is small, more for the view and a dip than an active family game of water polo) and the owners were very helpful in giving us advice about...

First off let me start by saying this place is literally heaven. It is the most tranquil amazing place I've ever been. Peggy is an absolute doll and her staff is amazing. We stayed there several nights before we came to a larger Resort. If I had it my way we would have stayed there the whole week. We were...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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.
