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

After flying into San Jose we traveled to Arenal the next morning. The drive from San Jose was beautiful and unlike some reviewers we found the driving no problem at all. The roads to Arenal were paved and in great shape. The roads do not have a shoulder but you adjust. The scenery is spectacular! Driving into Arenal is truly... More

We had 3 generations for a 50th anniversary and everyone enjoyed the resort and location. Plenty to do for all from age 10 to age 70. The rooms were large, unique and very clean and comfortable. The pool with swim up bar was hopping with guests every afternoon., The food was fresh and flavorful. The staff went above and beyond... More

My husband, myself and our 18 year old daughter stayed here for 5 nights. I was debating about booking this place,, so unsure.. and I am SO glad I did! The pictures online do not do it justice, I assure you. Everyone speaks English,, and they will bend over backwards to make their guests happy. The rooms are clean,spacious and... More

This resort had some good points BUT what I would have liked to have known is this... The property has cows in a fenced in area behind the rooms. When we went to wander around we noticed an emaciated dog (boxer mix) chained up with no housing or bedding. He was shaking and clearly sick. We were hoping that one... More

My first hotel stop in Costa Rica was Mountain Paradise. The grounds were very pretty with lush tropical plants and many species of birds. The room itself was fine. A bit damp, but what do you expect when you're in the tropics! It met our needs and more. The shower was lovely, and the rooms were big. The pool was... More

This was an unexpected treat! After escaping San Jose (the land of Razor wire and the most INSANE drivers in the world! There are no rules driving here). We drove 3 hours to The Mountain Paradise; no way did we expect what we saw and how we were treated. Let’s start with the greeting of a nice cool towel after... More
