One can not beat the location of this hotel. It has the perfect setting with gorgeous views of the lake. The concept of the individual villas is great, but the house cleaning crew is very lacking in their duties. For Costa Rica, this place is fairly expensive. Not to mention that the dinner menu lacks any thinking that this would...

20 min away from Arenal volcano and busier "resort" hotels la Mansion is a quaint, unique and villa only gem with super views over lake Arenal. Beautiful villas, grounds and good food. Nothing nearby but if you want to experience the area away from the crowds stay here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Mansion. Our hosts, Leo and Peggy, are welcoming and expert at advising their guests. The staff is equally accommodating, the property is both beautiful and artistically quirky. Cottages are extremely comfortable with great beds and showers. The scenery is magnificent and the views were apparently considered when the cottages were constructed. Our experience...

The staff, owners and chef make dining an occasion worth repeating! The rooms are perfect...large, comfortable, elegant in a charming way. We enjoyed sitting on our individual patio and...

Perfectly situated on the banks of Lake Arenal, this little slice of heaven was ideal for us. Nuevo Arenal is not for everyone, but that why we liked it. The bungalows are charming, the help can read your mind.

This hotel has everything for a breathtaking experience. The rooms are tastefully decorated especially the murals on the walls. The infinity pool is one to die for. The restaurant has chess board, couches and is open from two sides giving a artistic arcade like feel. Lake Arenal sits invitingly before you when in room, pool or restaurant

The hotel is run badly and the owners were decidedly unfriendly. We felt like unwanted house guests intruding on the owners' private party. Simple requests like using the jaccuzzi were met with eye rolling as if we were putting them out to have to turn on the hot water (the tub takes several hours to heat) And then when we...
