Overview

Incredible panoramic views of Lake Arenal spread out before you when you stay at La Mansion Inn, a hidden jewel found almost by accident along the route from La Fortuna over to Monteverde, or on your way to the beaches of Guanacaste. Romantic European cottages dot the landscape, many with their own private Jacuzzis. Complete with restaurant, bar, swimming pool, and Jacuzzi, La Mansion offers an amazing experience for those who just want to relax and marvel at the beauty of Costa Rica. If you’re looking for enchantment, this is the place!

Lake Arenal, starting from the shores of Arenal Volcano, extends about 35 miles northwest surrounded by lush green rolling hills with a scenic mountainous background. Besides passing through on the beautiful lake road, visitors often come to the area to go fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, birdwatching, and even to explore a nearby cave.

La Mansion’s restaurant presents a complimentary breakfast to its guests and is open as well for lunch and dinner. Both the restaurant and bar share the same bucolic lake views as the individual cottages.

Each cottage offers its own charm, uniquely decorated in baroque fashion reminiscent of Italy and Bombay, India. Artisan designed wrought ironwork is found throughout from bed frames to chandeliers. Reading lights are positioned on both sides of king beds. Doorways are arched, bathrooms are tiled, and skilled mural artwork grace the walls reflecting the native flora and fauna seen locally.

All cottages offer both air conditioning and ceiling fans (see full list of amenities below) and some have either indoor or outdoor private Jacuzzis. Many have a full bath with tub. All boast natural stone patios with rocking chairs. There is one Honeymoon Suite with indoor jacuzzi, and both the Queen and Royal Cottage can sleep up to six people.

An ideal romantic interlude to relax and enjoy the natural countryside before hitting the more touristed areas.

I thought the entire place looked a little run-down for the price we paid. The jacuzzi did not work and the pook was too cold to swim in. We were served wine that had soured. (They did give us new servings after I complained.) The bill was inaccurate. The landscaping was lovely though and the bed was comfortable.

It was a good thing Joyce was a dear friend and we have traveled together before
We should have had 2 separate units. As it was, we had to share one bathroom.
We made it work! Staff was very accommodating.

Beautiful view from hotel. Hotel was as expected, and everyone was nice there.

The views from the hotel are beautiful and it is very quiet. The Jacuzzi was not working unfortunately and the pool water was freezing. The steps up to the second floor in our room were very steep, slippery and dangerous.
