We just visited the Arenal area on our Costa Rica vacation and stayed at this facility for the first 3 nights and Loved it. The only negative is you are limited to eating options with the only restaurant being on site but other than that the bathrooms were great, patio areas, pool and staff very friendly. The only noise is... More

Heard so much about Costa Rica so decided to take a weeks vacation and check- it out. We were extremely pleased with all of our arrangements and the people we dealt with during our stay. We booked an adventure vacation through Costa Rica Vacations and they did not disappoint. They booked us into a deluxe room at the Hotel Mountain... More

My Husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon and we ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. The grounds only have like 20 rooms so it feels very personal and private. The rooms are kind of like little bungalos and each is a different vibrant color outside. The grounds are very well kept and clean. The room was spacious and... More

Upon arriving in Costa Rica we immediately drove to La Fortuna for our stay at the Mountain Paradise. FYI, there's no address and you'll be lucky if your GPS can find it. Best thing to do is put in La Fortuna and then ask for directions once you get there. Everyone knows where it is! It is set on beautiful... More

As usual, the sum of all of the reviews you read here are accurate. The grounds of the resort are beautiful and the rooms are large. They have made an effort to include waterfall showers and plans in the bathroom which is nice except that it attracts a lot of bugs. The service is fine, they set up a transfer... More

Was surprised about some of the negative reviews. My family and I truly enjoyed this hotel. It had an amazing view of the volcano and the gardens were very special. The room was clean and really beautiful. We did have a premuim room. My kids loved the jacuzzi on the porch and the waterfall shower. Only complaint was that the... More

Let me start by giving you a bit of a back ground information. My girlfriend and I had decided to go to Costa Rica for a 10 day vacation. We usually travel about four to five times a year. We have stayed in many 5 stars hotels as well as 2 star hotels. We both agree that a 5 star... More

From reading the recent reviews, I wonder who Ivan is because I never met him. We ate dinner one night in the restaurant and having breakfast there each morning from reading these reviews you would think I would know Ivan, but the dining staff to me was only "so-so". They served us and that was about it. Not really friendly,... More

There are many hotels to choose from in this area and we are very happy that we happened upon this one in our search. The road to get there is a little bumpy (they were actually working on it while we were there), but the view from the hotel makes it all worth it! Arenal is a gorgeous backdrop everywhere... More
