I happened to stumble upon this Hotel and loved it at first sight. The views are superb and the owner was so helpful and kind. I loved staying there. Too bad it was only one night. The food is great too. There is a coffee maker in the beautiful little house all with private porch and view, the swimming pool...

Me and a few of my friends stayed at La Mansion Inn Arenal in late December for 3 nights. The staff was incredibly helpful and courteous. We booked Horseback Riding/Hike and White Water Rafting through Peggy with no hiccups. The owner walked us through all the available activities and helped us pick the right ones for our group. Breakfast was...

We were driving from La Fortuna to Tilaran and found this beautiful place specially the Le Bistro restaurant, the food was amazing and served really quick even when they had only one chef. The views are simply amazing and the decoration was great. 4 stars because the service can improve a bit but is worth the stop if you are...

The owner of La Mansion treated us like family. He was very friendly and informative but also gave us our privacy. The Inn is extremely clean, and the food excellent. The Inn is along the country side so much quieter than the hustle and bustle of La Fortuna. Anyone seeking a BEAUTIFUL hotel with peace and quiet atmosphere to relax...

We try to come to Costa Rica every year and choose a new area to explore, but inevitably must include a visit to La Mansion situated right in the hills above gorgeous Lake Arenal. We are always welcomed by Peggy or her father, Leo and always treated so warmly and well. The cottages are just lovely and the views outstanding....

We were very lucky to stumble onto this place We had one of the best stays we've had while traveling in Costa Rica , mostly due to the owners of the hotel, Don Leo and Peggy, they made us feel so welcome.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at La Mansion for just 1 night. When we got there we intended to spend a weekend but we changed our minds once we met the owner of the Hotel. Cold and extremely rude. But we were too tired to look for another Hotel late at night... After paying for the first night, he took...

YOU GOT A SPECIAL RATE of $ 100 instead of the regular $ 165 rate, and I told you it was WITHOUT AC. The guide booklet in the cottages mention breakfast is served 6:30-9:30 and our rates include CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST. You ordered 2 omelets with ham, which anyway are not included in the continental breakfast, and you would have to...

One can not beat the location of this hotel. It has the perfect setting with gorgeous views of the lake. The concept of the individual villas is great, but the house cleaning crew is very lacking in their duties. For Costa Rica, this place is fairly expensive. Not to mention that the dinner menu lacks any thinking that this would...

20 min away from Arenal volcano and busier "resort" hotels la Mansion is a quaint, unique and villa only gem with super views over lake Arenal. Beautiful villas, grounds and good food. Nothing nearby but if you want to experience the area away from the crowds stay here!
