Close to town and not far from the springs and other adventure activities. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and for the price you can't find a better value. Large rooms, swim up bar that you can order food from and great views.

Ok lets start with the view, on a clear day your at the poolside bar with a great view of the Arenal volcano. The gardens a nice but can be a bit of a truck to your room (buggies provided if required for anyone with real walking difficulties) Rooms were large and had a great looking shower and a waterfall...

Truly unique room with a "waterfall" shower, live plants in the bathroom and a four poster bed. Hotel needs a bit of attention. We were locked out for an extended period while batteries were finally replaced in the lock. Wifi advertised, but available only infrequently.

We stayed 4 nights at Mountain Paradise, but I'm not sure I'd stay there again. At first glance it's a beautiful spot - each room has a fabulous view of Arenal Volcano (when you can see it). But as our stay unfolded, it was the little things that were somewhat frustrating. We found little things that didn't work right, like... More

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!!
