La Mansion Inn Arenal Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Nuevo Arenal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2017

La Mansion Arenal is the place to be on the north shore of Lake Arenal. It is situated on the lake side of the main road, with spectacular views the length of the lake. All of the rooms are, in fact, suites, with a lakeview porch, an inside sitting area and one or two bedrooms. Breakfast can be had beside the infinity pool with choices of local cuisine and more standard fare from a varied menu. It is an easy walk to the lake side, and the hotel keeps canoes on the bank--just ask at the desk for paddles and life jackets. Lunch and dinner at the en suite restaurant are available from an even wider menu with a fine selection of alcoholic and other beverages.

Across the main road and up the hill, the side road goes for miles through the countryside and makes for a very pleasant walk.

All in all, not to be missed by any visitor to the beautiful shores of Lake Arenal.

Room Tip: All the rooms have fine views.

The La Mansion Inn is a small hotel featuring individual cabins for their guests. The cabins are on the hillside facing Lake Arenal and the beautiful scenic surroundings. The cabins are nicely decorated with artsy furnishing and finishes. Although well worn everything was spotless. The hotel has it's own restaurant which serves good food and a variety of beverages. The rates are a tad above average but then so is the service and the scenery. The grounds are beautifully manicured with lush tropical plants and trees. The infinity pool is very clean and overlooks the lake. Shopping and souvenirs are available in the nearby towns of Nuevo Arenal and La fortuna. There isn't much traffic on the highway leading to the hotel so it is quiet and serene. The temperatures are also cooler than on the Pacific coast and air conditioning is seldom needed. There is always a cool mountain breeze. Arenal volcano isn't visible from the hotel but is only a short drive away. This hotel is a unique experience and one I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: All the cabins are on a hillside. If a steep grade is an issue you should try to get a room nearer...

We are a family of five and stayed in Villa number four. It had one large king size bed in one bedroom and 3 single beds in another bedroom with two separate showering areas. It was perfect. The amenities were very clean, the staff was extremely friendly and the view was spectacular! The restaurant was exceptionally good and we ate there 2 out of our 4 evenings that we stayed at the property. Breakfast was included through our booking with Expedia. We especially were very thankful to the concierge Natalia who gave us extremely helpful hints and tips to enjoy the local scenery without necessarily requiring extra tour guides. We flew into Liberia and the hotel was about a 90-minute drive from the airport. A comfortable drive if driving during the day but the roads can be a little tricky at night since it's mountainous. The Arenal region is beautiful and plenty of activities to keep you busy and yet relaxed for three to four days. It was a dream vacation

We loved every minute of our stay at La Mansion Inn. Peggy and her team were great from start (booking) to finish. We have a 2 room villa that slept 5 (second room - 3 single beds). Our view was like living in a post card. The pool was great and the food was fantastic. All staff was friendly and very accommodating often helping us with recommendations for tours (horseback riding, 4-wheeling).

We stopped here to eat on our way out of the area....OMG! This was some of the best food we had eaten on our entire vacation. I think it was the best vegetable lasagna that I've eaten in my entire life. Excellent European menu including some of the best beers from there. Restaurant looks out over a stunning view of the lake. Property was very clean.
