We have stayed at LaMansion and love it even more each time! We had a deluxe room with Balcony and a superb view of the Pacific...breathtaking!!! Quiet, rooms are Very nice and clean, beautiful pool and sunbathing area. Swim up bar. Service is excellent, staff very helpful!! They are undergoing restaurant renovation right now...food is good . Breakfast included with room! Close to Manuel Antonio Park .Parking is limited so cab is recommended. Lots of activities in the area. Recommend the canopy tour!

Room Tip: Deluxe awesome view of the Pacific...large Balcony!!! Number 9

Your comments are much appreciated and we are very proud to offer the #1 view of Manuel Antonio! The National Park and the views for the hotel are some of the primary reasons people stay with us. This fact coupled with outstanding personalized service and great food makes the vacation experience at the Mansion second to none.

Happy Thanksgiving,

We loved everything about this hotel. Our balcony looked out over Manuel Antonio National Park and the view was spectacular. There are lots of nice places to relax and enjoy a cold drink. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and the food was fantastic too. If you catch fish on one of the local charters, the chef will cook it for you for a cheap price. The chef is really good and prepared our fish with three different sauces. Excellent! There is also a sloth that lives in a nearby tree (good luck finding him on your own - have someone point it out for you!).

Room Tip: Penthouse 3 overlooks Manuel Antonio National Park. Beautiful!

On behalf of my staff and our "resident sloth" thanks for your nice review. Sometimes our hotel grounds looksmore like a Zoo than a hotel and only today we posted several pictures on our Facebook page featuring a troupe of Capuchin Monkeys and a tree porcupine visiting us. Our maginifenct views can not be matched by virtually any of the other hotels and we are proud of our location highly peches on the side of the Manuel Antonio Peninsula overlooking the nearby National Park and the lush Jungle below. This is really God's Country and we are happy to share our good fortune! Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a great place to stay! The views are amazing, the rooms are beautiful and the staff is very friendly.
I enjoyed how we were shown to our room as well as given a brief history and tour of the hotel. This was a very nice touch.
The food is good, nothing extraordinary.
They offer scheduled drop offs and pick ups to the beach.

Thanks for the nice review and you are right: our views can not be beat! We are going through some kitchen changes and menu development and our presentations are high on the list. Our new menus will offer some glueten free and some even more healthier items. We look forward to hosting you sometime in the future.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Mansion Family!

You are absolutely right! We have the most magnificent view of Manuel Antonio National Park and are very proud of it. Comments like your remind me how blessed we are to live in "Paradise" and enjoy this viw every day! However, we are very happy to share !!!!!! The Whale Season is about to begin and the views from your room or suite can be even more spectacular with a whale sighting! The new restaurant is about finished and will provide even more unparalelled views of the Jungle below and Manuel Antonio National Park. Hope to see you back soon! Thanks for your comments and a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!

My husband and I stayed here for the last 3 nights of our honeymoon. I have to say, we really did not spend much time in the hotel but the accommodations were nice and everyone we came in contact with there was extremely helpful. The views are amazing and the hotel is quite and has an intimate feeling. The front desk staff helped us numerous times on getting taxis and setting up reservations for activities. Breakfast was included in our reservation which we took advantage of each morning. There was a great selection and it was always fast. We had some amazing food while in Costa Rica and this was just about average but there was tough competition. The chicken wrap we had one day at lunch was far from special but we were in a hurry and wanted something small so it sufficed. The room was comfortable, except we didn't care for the couch that was in the room. Any time you sat on it the pillows went sliding all over the place. We would recommend a change here, but like I said, we were hardly ever in our room. For those unfamiliar with the area, do not expect to be able to walk everywhere. I thought it would be more walker friendly but the road is very narrow and curvy with no sidewalks. The cab rides weren't terribly expensive but you should plan for this and keep cash/colones on hand and do not expect change from them. I did a lot of research and contemplating on hotels and I am really happy I chose this one.

We all appreciate the nice write-up and have reviewed the Chicken Wrap recipe and did make some changes in the presentation. Sorry about the "sliding pillows" and I think you are talking about the white leather couch in the suite. If not, let me know please.. We are in the midst of some room and suite make-overs. In some we have added kitchenetttes for extended stays and changed the sofas. I look forward to hosting you again!

My husband and I enjoyed our quick trip to Manuel Antonio. One of our highlights was staying at La Mansion Inn! The views were unbelievable from our comfortable, luxurious room as well as from the pool area/deck. The staff were outstanding catering to our needs, making sure everything was to our liking. The bartender in the 'bat cave' made the best mojito and blackberry margarita, gathering fresh mint and basil from the garden. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the many amenities at La Mansion Inn.

We appreciate the compliments especially the bartender! When we see you again, the first drinks will be "on the house"! As we are entering our high season we appreciate your business during our slower period. Let me know when you will be back because I will join you for that drink!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't think there's a better ocean view from any hotel in Manuel Antonio. Though there may be a couple of fancier (and pricier!) hotels, we checked out one, and found it overdone and not as interesting as this unique boutique hotel. Luxurious and comfortable bed and room. All meals we had were very good, but the (included) breakfast out on the terrace every morning overlooking the harbor was particularly delightful. Lovely pool area. Very good value for the price; will definitely stay here again if/when we return to this beautiful area.

We saw a monkey traverse the railing of our patio once, but it never bothered us. It was fun to see a large iguana sometimes park himself outside our patio on the grass.

The only minor problem we had with it was the small parking lot, difficult to maneuver in and out of.

Room Tip: I'd imagine the higher rooms have the best ocean views.

Thanks very much for your review... My apologies for the size of the main Parking Lot. We problably messed up and did not tell you that we do have a second (new) valet parking facility on the east side of the building... We look forward to hosting you again..
