This is a very pretty place with nicely furnished rooms including mountain spring showers in the suite bathrooms. A good start but we ran into too many problems to recommend this hotel to others. We found the service was inadequate-during our stay we encountered only ill-trained personnel on site. For example, we wanted to visit the hot springs at Tabacon,... More

I did a ton of research on hotels in Fortuna and ended up going with Mountain Paradise because they were running a special that made them the least expensive option (we had a deluxe suite). The room was huge and accomodated my family of 4 very well. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of our room and the hotel... More

Although we had a warm welcome after a long journey, we wouldn't rate this place. On arrival, the rooms looked quite impressive with a waterfall shower and a bathroom large enough to have a party in! The room would also have been amazing if it hadn't been so damp. The sheets on the bed were wet which didn't make for... More

We stayed at Hotel Mountain Paradise for 4 nights and loved every second of our stay. While we were there, we felt like we were the only people there (it was before the peak season) and the staff was great. Rooms were very romantic with a great view. The free shuttle was nice, but required some planning to coordinate with... More

In the best spot it could be located, you'll find Mountain Paradise. All starts in the reception, with Volcan Arenal framed in the window. A welcoming garden with hot swimming pool leads you to the unbelievable rooms, perfectly decorated on country patterns. Is difficult to chose a higlhight! The superking beds, jacuzzi on the porch or the cascade in the... More

Hotel Mountain Paradise is no hotel, it is a sanctuary! The grounds are absolutely stunning, filled with flora and funa. The service is exceptional. My friends and I loved the swim up bar with bar stools inside the heated pools, which were a perfect temperature. The breakfast every morning is a little different each day offering variety. The drive into... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated amazingly. The people who worked there seemed like they actually cared about you individually and that they weren't just doing a "job", they actually cared about making us happy. Ivan, the food and drink manager was especially helpful. He did all the work for the anniversary supper just for us, unbelievable. They... More
