The rooms are a lot of fun. We will take the kids next time as the rooms are huge. There is a king bed and a full size bed in the room. The bathroom is very large with an awesome waterfall shower. The private patio had a great view of the volcano with an in ground jacuzzi. The pool is... More

The communal areas are nice with lots of flowers and the pool area is also really nice with a bar. The hotel food isn't great and really expensive and you are miles from the town. There is a free bus that goes to La Fortuna but it finishes at 5.30pm. The bungalows are a bit tacky in all honesty. There... More

What an AMAZING experience!!! The service was AMAZING from the moment we pulled up. We were met with cool fragrant towels which was certainly appreciated because we made the three hour journey from the San Jose right after we landed. Check-in was a breeze and then we were wisked off to our AMAZING rooms " Rustic Styled Cabins" by the... More

Just came back from our Costa Rican trip and wanted to rave about the service we got at Mountain Paradise Hotel. My husband and I travelled with friends, one of whom had forgotten to bring an important medication with him. The hotel staff, especially John, and the manager worked all day to find a pharmacy and doctor who could help... More

Our first impression of Hotel Mountain Paradise was that it was a high end hotel. We were greeted by name with cool washcloths and juice, which was a nice start. We were driven by golf cart to our room (#400), which was a bit of a hike from the restaurant and reception area, but you are in Costa Rica and... More

We stayed with our son and wife and kids - ages 14, 9 and 7 at the Mountain Paradise while visiting the Arenal Volcano area. The hotel consists of separate villas, each with two very, very large bedrooms, an enormous bathroom with shower and separate "grotto" with shower and living plants, and a private garden area with hot tub. Our... More

The grounds and cabins at Hotel Mountain Paradise are very beautiful and all have stunning views of the volcano. I also liked the location outside of Fortuna. We saw a tree frog on our front porch the first hour we arrived and lots of birds. The staff was very friendly and nice and even squeezed in an extra bed so... More

The hotel is situated in a beautiful spot with a clear view of the volcano. The grounds are stunning with the local flora and they are well maintained. The rooms are spacious. One downside is that the walls are a bit thin so you can hear your neighbors television. The attention to detail was welcome. My kids enjoyed the animal... More
