Nicely situated mid way along the Lake Arenal road, this hotel has wonderful views over the lake. It is tranquil and well away from the tacky tourist locations nearer the volcano. You can't see the volcano, but since it's in cloud most of the time, who cares? More importantly, the location is sheltered from the howling winds that scour Lake...

Our family also started our trip in Arenal, and La Mansion Inn was an ideal choice. The cottages are not like any other hotel room - they are small cottages with a Spanish decor and an outdoor private patio looking over the lake. We arrived at night, and woke up to the beauty of hills rolling down to the lake...

We loved this hotel. The owner and staff were very accommodating and friendly. Our one year old son was "adopted' by the wait staff and given regular tours of the kitchen. We also enjoyed the pools. Our room was very comfortable with a private terrace with a nice view of the lake. But don't stay here if you want Four...

We started our trip in Arenal, staying at La Mansion Inn. What a way to begin a terrific vacation! The setting is spectacular and our cottage was wonderful. We ate all of our dinners at the restaurant, and the food was fabulous - the best we had in Costa Rica. The owner was friendly and so helpful -- he arranged...

We stayed here for 4 nights on the recommendation of a friend. This is a fabulous value for the money. Each room is an individual cottage with balcony overlooking the lake, with fridge and coffee maker. The position of the cabins makes it so that you do not see anyone else, just an amazing view of the lake with horses...

The hotel was not your typical tourist location, but instead offered private cottages with true tranquility and comfort. Staff and food was exceptional. I traveled with my 2 teenage daughters and we all loved the Inn and all it had to offer in terms of comfort, the heated pools, private patios, etc. I would recommend that you rent a car...

We shared this rental with another couple and it was perfect. Both rooms and bathrooms were beautiful and comfortable. The views were amazing and the staff was wonderful. We even make friends with their little puppy. The breakfast was delicious! Try the banana, macadamia nut pancakes! We traveled around Costa Rica for a week and this was our favorite place,...

We spent three nights here on our first trip to Costa Rica. Our cottage was so nice, and sitting on the rocking chairs on the porch, looking out over the peaceful lake vista was great. The staff were warm and accommodating and the breakfast with the fresh fruit platter was great. The only negative I would have is the location,...

It's hard to describe how wonderful this place is other than the cliche that it is a slice of heaven. The setting is magic. Rooms are actually small individual homes (minus a kitchen), each with a porch looking out over Lake Arenal. This is so picture postcard beautiful it's ridiculous. The light throughout the day changes causing one to continuouslly...

14 private cottages beautifully situated on a hill overlooking Lake Arenal. Stunning view of the lake with a backdrop of hills and a volcano. Breathtaking sunsets, rainforest sounds to awaken you. Our cottage with jacuzzi was tastefully decorated and comfortable. The owners Leo and Peggy are friendly and accomodating. The staff was always courteous and eager to please. The food...
