This was a lovely group of individual suites going up a hill all with a view of the volcano. They had both a king and a queen bed, but no where to hang anything..or put anything, except on the other bed. They had cute little porches with rockers and a Jacuzzi spa out on the deck. We enjoyed that. The... More

Beautiful setting (even when it's raining), very friendly staff, and all the amenities you'd want. Staff was particularly helpful in arranging a hanging bridges tour and a night hike. The best part, though, is the room. This isn't a traditional-looking hotel. Instead, small cottages are scattered up a lush hillside. Each cottage has two rooms with secluded private entrances and...

This hotel was probably the most amazing hotel in which I have ever had the good fortune to land. We spent three nights here as part of a two-week Collette tour of Costa Rica...in our own little cottage...with our own pool...an indoor waterfall shower...two Costa Rican rocking chairs...and a full view of the volcano. There was another "community" pool steps... More

This hotel was superb. The setting is truly beautiful, vast well kept gardens full of tropical plants, trees, butterflies and many birds including humming birds, toucan, acari and caracaras. We also spotted basilisk lizards, squirrels, coati mundi, raccoon, and a black tayra. The rooms are huge with outside jacuzzi or pool. Inside, the bathrooms are enormous with a waterfall shower...

If your looking for great hospitality, a costa rica experience and beautiful setting then this is your place. EVERYONE was nice... not one person was unpleasant.. we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite and it was sheer heaven. Our excursions arranged by the front desk were wonderful and without an problems. Angelo was a great guide! The spa was fantastic!... More

We spent 10 days in Costa Rica at an all inclusive resort on the Coast and were very disappointed. We decided to leave and spent one night here! Totally awesome! Perfect location, friendly staff, amazing room. It was secluded and private making us feel we were truly in another world. Wish we had stayed here longer!!

Good: 1. Volcano views. 2. Size of the cabins Bad: 1. Horrible breakfast: one water down juice, everything absolutely the cheapest and poorest quality, minimal selection, dirty dishes(seriously!) 2. No Wi-Fi in the cabins, and spotty Wi-Fi in the restaurant and pool area. 3. Employees look unhappy 4. Nice vegetation but poorly maintained. This hotel is past it prime and... More

We absolutely fell in love with everything we did in la fortuna and it all began with the overwhelming surprise at mountain paradise! We did not expect it to be as beautiful as it turned out to be. It was a beautiful walk to our private villa where we could hear the birds all around us! The food, the people,... More

This was an incredible stay. On this particular road of hotels near La Fortuna, Hotel Mountain Paradise is situated at the absolute top of the hill so you get a breathtaking view of Arenal Volcano. The hotel grounds are vast and gorgeous. We had the Master Deluxe Suite which comes with two giant bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen (no sink),... More

We were very happy with this place. The service was top notch from the every first minute. Rooms a re clean and spacious. The showers were interesting. Very good breakfast, with the great volcano view. And the hotel is close to many attractions. WIFI works best in the restaurant, lobby or pool. Occasionally it would reach our room. Having a...
