The common greeting upon your arrival is a cold towel and a cold drink. If you are unfortunate enough to be on the edge of the property, you will be taken by golf cart. The signage for the "out there" villas is poor, especially at night. We got lost several times at night trying to get back from the main... More

My husband and I finished out our Costa Rican adventure at Hotel Mountain Paradise. We arrived late in the day after many hours of travel. The front desk associates were friendly and whisked us off to our room promptly. The restaurant has beautiful views of the volcano from any seat. Ivan, the food and beverage manager is fantastic. He made... More

Incredible I would first like to thank Costa Rican Vacations for setting up with a wonderful journey to another land. The staffs at Mountain Paradise were very welcoming and understanding, of all of our issues (aka my food allergies). The treated us like family. The hotel was incredibly clean and the view of the volcano was amazing. I would recommend... More

The service we received at Mountain Paradise was far better than we'd ever experienced before. The staff made special arrangements to fit our family of 5 into a suite. The rooms were clean and had everything you could need. The view of the volcano is unbelievable...we were in awe everyday! The staff, including the owners, treated us like a part... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Mountain Paradise. The rooms were amazing. The waterfall showers and huge king sized bed almost made it hard to get out an explore Arenal. And, the jacuzzi on the deck was awesome too. We were a bit disappointed that we could not see the volcano from our deck but we remedied this by walking... More

We flew into San Jose before noon and were at Mountain Paradise by 3pm. It was about what I expected based on previous reviews-however I was in awe of the views and of the grounds. We were at 202 which had the extra bedroom with two twin beds. It was a perfect set-up with the king bed looking out at... More

After 3 days on the Pacific coast we were ready for an interior Costa Rica experience. We could not have been happier with our choice of the Hotel Mountain Paradise. The gardens are simply amazing - humming birds everywhere - and the casita style rooms were excellent (how about that waterfall shower?!). But as it is with any place, it's... More

Our stay at Mountain Paradise Hotel was excellent. It pays to ignore the more expensive hotels and stay here. The entire staff was more than friendly and made us feel very welcome. It’s easy to find West of La Fortuna just off highway 142 and up the hill. There are signs along the road. The grounds are landscaped with orchids... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in June. The rooms are gorgeous, and I loved the waterfall shower. It was super hot and hit the tops of my shoulders perfectly. I was visited by a lizard or two, but remember friends, we are in the rainforest area! As far as bugs go....there were a few little ants... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon. When we arrived we were greated with a fresh fruit drink and cold towel. Seemed like we were in for a nice 4 days...we stayed in a premium suite with a jacuzzi. The rooms like really nice at face value but take a closer look and the waterfall shower is crawling with...
