I was not expecting to have such a beautifully set up room. Was by far the nicest place we stayed while in Costa Rica. The room was huge along with the bed and the fabulous washroom. The patio was a nice size with a couple of rocking chairs and a great view of the volcano. The Jacuzzi tub on the... More

Mountain Paradise is seriously amazing. The rooms are huge and beautiful, the views are breathtaking, the staff is incredible- they're so kind and patient and they treat you like royalty. We stayed at 2 other places in Costa Rica and this one was definitely our favorite. The guy at the front (can't remember his name) was so helpful and nice,... More

Great jump off spot for rain forest and volcano adventures. Comfortable and clean rooms, friendly staff, centrally located to many activities and really wonderful food. Peaceful vibe and very quiet. Grounds are shared with lots of birds and other animals. A good family spot for sure.

We took a family vacation ages from 19 to 70+. We loved the tropical setting and the overall privacy of our bungalow. The patio and rocking chairs outside our sliding door made a great place to relax and watch the birds and other wildlife. The staff was wonderful and made our stay very comfortable. That being said the rooms need... More

We arrived at this hotel after a long and very difficult drive, and it was a distinct pleasure when the guard at the gate called me by name! The ground was beautifully manicured. The pool was large with a swim up bar. A hotel staff drove us to our room with a small shuttle. When we walked into the room,... More

We had a two bedroom suite, one room with two queen beds, and one with a king. Rooms connected with an odd kitchen like space that had a counter and a small refrigerator. No seating area inside to gather as a family. Two bathrooms were updated and clean. Housekeeping did an excellent job. It was nice to be in a... More

This hotel is about 6k outisde of the main town down a track around 300 yds long, so off the beaten track. Having said that this is the only thing wrong with the hotel, there is a cartel operating charging you $12 to get into town, either from the hotel or a local taxi, so they agree the prices together....

You are, after all, in the rainforest! Heard estimate that only 30% of tourists are actually able to see volcano due to it being in the clouds. We did not. Had stayed there 2 years ago with a friend so made reservations for same room 6 months prior and when we arrived it was already occupied. Disappointment. Probably would have... More
