Beautiful views, amazing service!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 14, 2014via mobile
The inn is located on a mountain overlooking the beach on both sides so almost all rooms have ocean view! Rooms are great spacious and comfortable. The best part about this hotel is the service!!!!! The staff was amazing from booking in room massages, to putting smiley faces in our tropical drinks they are they for whatever you need! Would come back in a heartbeat.

At La Mansion, guests are paying for the stunning views. The hotel itself is average. The decor is a bit outdated, but nice. The views from the pool are breathtaking. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is good, but nothing special. We stayed for one night, which was just right.

We screwed up our flight and arrived really early at La Mansion which was 3am although we were supposed to checked in at 3pm. The staff went out of their way and tried to get us in a room as soon they could to accommodate our needs even though all their rooms were booked at time.

This hotel is recommended for adult couples looking for a relaxing or romantic time. Yes everything in this hotel runs on smaller size but it fit perfectly just the way it is. The pool was open 24 hrs with great views. We missed our chance of having dinner here, which really disappointed us so we should have booked for a longer stay. The complimentary breakfast was perfect and fast service as well.

We had more wild life visited us here everyday than what we saw at the National Park. Every morning the monkeys visited us at our balcony, one day one came by the pool and stole a banana from the pool bar, it was the funniest thing we ever saw.

The guest are very nice as well we meet a lot of couples from all over the world.

The only downside is that the hotel is away from shops and restaurants. But getting cab rides is not a problem, the longest we waited was 5 min. The hotel does provide free shuttle to the beach and the National Park 3 times a day at certain hours.

We just spent 9 nights here and felt as if we were leaving a second home. Let me first start off by offering a recommendation to you: Costa Rica is not the United States nor is it Europe - and that is exactly why you should travel to this amazing country. If you visit with a negative and critical mindset based on another country´s standards and cultural norms, all you will find is dissapointment. But if you come with an open mind ready for adventure, you will experience the many blessings that Costa Rica has to offer.

La Mansion Inn is one of the most beautiful properties in Manuel Antonio. We came to the area 9 years ago and wanted to spoil ourselves so we looked for a boutique hotel - and that´s exactly what we found with La Mansion Inn. The hotel is coneveniently located just off the main road yet secluded so it´s quiet from any noise (except the monkeys in late afternoon). The hotel is on a bluff overlooking south towards Manuel Antonio beach and also with views looking north towards Jaco. There are two beaches within walking distance from the hotel which was great for us as we didn´t have a car. We stayed in Penthouse #4, which I highly recommend. It is located at one end of the hotel and has the best views in the entire property facing the mountainside and Manuel Antonio beach. You get to enjoy a large living room, dining room and bedroom all with amazing views - plus a large balcony with a table and lounge chairs.

What sets La Mansion Inn apart from the other neighboring hotels is the intimate atmosphere and service provided to guests.There are about 25 rooms here so you never feel overwhelemed with crowds and are always well taken care of by the staff. You don´t have to wait long for room service or for a drink by the pool. Compare this to Hotel Parador further down the road that brings in tourists by the busload and you have screaming kids running around everywhere and long lines for the breakfast buffet.

The staff at La Mansion Inn are what I will miss most.The moment we arrived we felt welcomed - there was Robert, the general manager, who greets you in the lobby with a smile and handshake and always asks how he can make your day better - and not because he gets paid to say that - but because he really does care. Then there is Juan Carlos who works by the pool and is somewhat shy at first but when you get to know him you realize he´s a solid guy with an interesting life story to share. We also got to know Juan better who helped out with breakfast in the morning (which is great with large portions). I have never seen anyone smile more than Juan did - it became contagious and you realize what the true meaning of ´´Pura vida´´ means in this country.

We were also in Costa Rica when they played Holland in the World Cup so the hotel guests were invited to watch the game in the owner´s (Harry) private suite. This was a lot of fun as we hung out wtih staff and guests while drinking beer and eating pizza. Harry is a generous host who regularly hangs out in the lobby to get to know his guests better - take the time to get to know him as he has a fascintating life story and is a wonderful person.

I´m already looking forward to staying here again when we return - Jason

Room tip: Penthouse # 4 is amazing! The best views in the entire place and very modern and clean.

Really was delighted with this hotel. The room was overlooking the beach in the distance, and the pool had a huge terrace which gave a 360 view of Manuel Antonio. We were getting used to having breakfast buffets in all the other hotels, however this hotel offers just one dish - albeit very tasty.

There is one person that I will remember from the visit to Manuel Antonio, and that person is the General Manager of this hotel. He is a fantastic character, and the hotel would not be the same without him. He invited my wife and I to a VIP drink and chat with the other hotel guests on Friday evening, and it was a very interesting evening.

Great beaches local to the hotel.

Recommended.

Thanks very much for you beautiful review - the only thing I do not understand is the one breakfast item that was very "yummy". We offer a full a la carte breakfast menu that consist of more than 14 items on which we get rave reviews.... Perhaps you can contact me personally to let me know what happened....

My boyfriend and me planned this trip for 4th July weekend and we had an absolutely amazing time! Customer service is top of the line, the staff go out of their way to make your stay fabulous. The food is spectacular and super fresh. We did the zip lining, the river rafting and the walk in the forest and the beach. The excursions were very organized and very safe. They provided a yummy food at the end of each trip. Highly recommended
