La Mansion Inn Arenal Hotel

Reviewed 30 April 2017

My wife and I spent four nights at this lovely, quiet group of cabins overlooking Lake Arenal. I can't imagine a better view of the lake; it's truly breathtaking with incredible sunsets and the Tenorio volcano in the distance. The water supply is spring-fed, delicious to drink, and terrific to swim in courtesy of the infinity pool overlooking the lake. Every morning, we stepped out onto our porch, sat in the locally-made rocking chairs, sipped our coffees and experienced the riot of bird life. There is an on-site restaurant with excellent food, and the staff is friendly, gracious and accomodating. There are murals everywhere, inside and out, with carefully-tended landscaping throughout the grounds. The place shows a bit of wear and tear, but this doesn't really detract from the overall experience. We were spoiled by the luxurious new towels in our cabin. Highly recommended. One morning we walked down to the lake (they have canoes if you want to paddle around) and saw our first toucan! Thank you Peggy and Maribelle!

Room Tip: Cabin #1 is closest to the pool and it's high on the hill for a great view.

When we came to Arenal we were not sure what to expect but La Mansion hotel was exactly what we were hoping for and more. The views from the individual bungalows were fantastic. You could see the lake and all of the beautiful nature surrounding it. The pool had an amazing view and chairs for relaxing. The hotel also features a restaurant which had very good food ( I recommend the meat platter), excellent service and friendly waiters and waitresses that are willing to not only do their job, but also teach you a little Spanish! The hotel's surroundings consisted of neon flowers, palm trees and even some original looking stone statues that gave me a look into Costa Rican history. Overall, La Mansion was one of our favorite spots throughout our trip!

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
