My wife and I stayed here for a couple nights while visiting the La Fortuna area. This place is perfectly located. They're tucked away from the main road, but it's about a 5-10 minute ride to anything you want to do in La Fortuna (zip line, hot springs, hanging bridges, 4 wheeling, horseback riding) I'm not sure about the other...

Our suite was gorgeous with its own pool. The public pool on property was nice and warm and fun for the kids. The view of the volcano was spectacular. Going to the restaurant the first night at 5pm and being told "sorry, we have a big group at 7pm with a reservation, so we can't serve you dinner" even though... More

What a shame. We stayed here for three nights last week with our three young boys. The hotel has some great views, and is a wonderfully landscaped property, the rooms have cool bathrooms and are decently proportioned spaces. The service is just plain awful, and it ruins the experience. Of the three hotels we stayed at in Costa Rica this... More

(My reservation stated it had 2 doubles which was not the case, but not a big deal) The beds were hard which I liked but... More

Myself and my friend stayed here in February. It was a nice hotel with comfy beds and gorgeous gardens and all rooms over look the volcano. That said, the service and the management (or complete lack of I should say!) was shocking. We asked for flights to be booked which they did as we were walking out the entrance to... More

Staff was welcoming and cheerful. Grounds were lovely--lush, colorful & well-maintained plantings--hummingbirds. We enjoyed each walk from our room to the restaurant and lobby. Room was spacious and private. Bathroom was a trip in itself, with 2 showers. Nice buffet breakfast. 2 dinners there (1 was excellent, 1 fair). Outdoor heated pool was attractive and fun.

This is a great and very unique hotel for this area. While in Arenal we saw no other hotel we would have preferred. The Pros: The hotel is a large collection of individual lodge or cabana style rooms scattered over the large well kept hotel grounds. The rooms are well separated and have private patios, so they offer a great... More

We stayed at the Mountain Paradise Hotel for two nights in a standard room. The room was large, clean and well equipped. The only downside was that due to low cloud the hoped for view of the Arenal volcano from our room was non existent. It was very pleasant to sit on our private patio surrounded by the local flora...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days while visiting Fortuna. The room was a beautiful room furnished to bring out the architecture of Costa Rica and the Colonial times. The bed was very comfortable, with lots of extra-large pillows. We stayed at room 103 which was Premium suite and it was very close to the pool and the dining... More

We got upgraded by Expedia due to an overbooking in another hotel and loved this place. We had a 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms and a basic kitchen. 2 queen sized beds for the kids and a king bed form my husband and I. The room was clean and had an amazing view of Arenal Volcano from the king... More
