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

Mountain Paradise was a truly beautiful hotel with a great view of Arenal Volcano. The grounds and pool facing the volcano were gorgeous and well maintained. The room was perfect and had lots of extra amenities such as the flat screen TV mountain high on the wall, the remote control for the air and lights, the jacuzzi tub and the... More

Booked this last minute on hotels.com. Great deal for a beautiful 4 star resort located next door to the hotel nayara. Great pool, friendly staff and the room was large with a good shower. Easy to drive too and to access all of the local area attractions, would recommend staying here. Did not eat at the restaurant so I can't... More

This place was great! We had one of the clearest days they had seen in a long time, with perfect views of the Arenal Volcano. You could not actually see the lava, but it was still amazing to see the smoke and ash. The pool bar was very nice and warm, and we found ourselves spending a little too much... More

After a beautiful drive from San Jose and some afternoon ziplining, this destination was beautiful and tranquil. The rooms are gigantic! The bathroom itself is a mini-escape with waterfall shower complet with cascading live plants. The openair restaurant looks onto Arenal and serves nice quality food with friendly service. Perfect start and end to the days. We spent an entire... More

We stayed at mountain paradise and loved it! We were toggling back and forth between this hotel and royal corrin and finally decided on this one. We are so glad we did. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is amazing. We will be staying here every time we go back to arenal. The only downside is that the hotel... More

We stayed there for a wedding. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. Gigantic bathrooms with waterfall showers. Most of the rooms, the restaurant and the pool has a great view of the volcano. The pool water was a bit warm though considering the outside temperature in the high season. We had a great stay, but then unfortunately we got overcharged... More

We loved the bungalows and waterfall showers. The rooms were spacious and clean and the grounds are beautifully maintained. We especially loved the heated pool with the great local bar drinks, the view of the volcano, and our dinner at the restaurant there. If you stay, make sure you have a dinner at the restaurant. The food was outstanding and... More
