All staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were clean and all plumbing working. The hot tub worked great. Wonderful waking up to the view of the volcano and the hummingbirds in the tropical landscaping surrounding the room, and the entire grounds. My only complaint was that the wetbar at the pool was being rebuilt while were there so we... More

The hotel is perfect! Rooms are beautiful in every way! Being able to see the volcano view our room was incredible. The staff was courteous and accommodating. We don’t want to leave!

Though the pool was being worked on, the layout and rooms were just super: how about a "falls" shower, jacuzzi, huge bed, and a view of the volcano....all reasonably priced. The staff was amazing. Say Hola to Erlan in the restaurant. Helped us to learn Spanish and Lucile in housekeeping. They will all be there for you. Can't say enough... More

Great location, fab view out to Arenal volcano, nice gardens and pool. However, they were building around the pool all day, which wasn't very romantic. Also, the restaurant looks lovely, the food was great but the personnel wasn't properly trained, they served water in their plastic (cheap) bottles and had paper napkins, not what you expect in an quite expensive...

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We absolutely loved Mountain Paradise and Fortuna (the town nearby). It was very easy to get to town, and to the various tours offered nearby. They offer a free shuttle to town, which I would recommend taking for dinner and then you have to take a taxi... More

the best hotel we could have hoped for. For a small price we got our own house, a big flat screen TV, a waterfall shower, private jacuzzi and an excellent hot swimming pool with bar built into it. Only the food wasn't excellent, but hey...that's Costa Rica.

I only stayed at Mountain Paradise Hotel for 1 night, but I wish I could have stayed there longer. Our van driver pulled up to the front lobby, and right away we noticed how well manicured the grounds were, with tropical flowers everywhere. The staff is very polite, and they drive you up to your room on a golf cart,... More

I traveled to Costa Rica with my best friend in August 2010 for 2 weeks. We stayed in the Arenal/La Fortuna area for 2 nights. We stayed at Hotel Mountain Paradise both nights and had an amazing experience there. We were greeted by friendly staff with a welcome drink from the restaurant. The staff took our luggage to our room... More

We arrived in San Jose around noon, picked up our rental car and drove directly to the hotel. The driveway to the hotel seems so remote and you think "uh oh" but then you quickly get to their private drive and it is such a beautiful place? You can see Arenal Volcano and the grounds are so lush and nicely... More
