There are a ton of hotels in La Fortuna to choose from, but we left without wishing or wondering if another place was better. The grounds were beautiful with a great view of the volcano. Staff was great. Pool with the swim up bar was great, and we didn't miss the termales. The only slight negative was that the restaurant... More

This hotel was beautifuly layed out on the hillsides next to volcano arenal. We were so close we could see rocks cascading down the side of the volcano. The rooms were all seperate villas with beautiful stone walkways between and lush flower bushes everywhere. The landscaping was up-kept perfectly as well. The pool had 3 small waterfalls emptying into pools... More

This hotel is beautiful, has amazing accommodations, and a stellar restaurant. The food there was simply amazing, and the food specialist, Ivan, was a very kind man who knew exactly what you would like after only a couple of days. An added bonus was the amazing shower - it was an indoor waterfall type thing, very hard to explain, but... More

Arrived for check in, friendly, courtious hosts showed me to my private room. It was amazining...private patio hot tub, "Rain-forest" shower, large LCD tv, computerized climate control, full-sliding double doors open to the sounds and fragrances outside. The heated pool was immaculated, with in-pool bar, television, music, and waterfall. The on-site restraunt featured great food at reasonable prices, the chef... More

We loved the Mountain Paradise. The service was excellent, the grounds are beautiful. Rooms are unique, extra large and comfortable. We really enjoyed having our own verandah and hot tub with unobstructed view of the volcano. The hot pool was a surprise, but enjoyable. The restaurant is very good. Ivan, the food & beverage manager, takes special care of each... More

We booked the room for three nights. This hotel was so stinky with mold/mildew that we all were effected with terrible headaches. The pool was pretty, but totally cloudy and full of drunk people at night, so much so that my nine year old did not want to go in. It was such a challenge to even sleep there for... More

We flew in to San Jose and drove straight to Hotel Mountain Paradise. The drive was nice and scenic but little bumpy so we were very happy to arrive and were very delighted with what we saw. The hotel grounds are beautiful. We were greeted by very friendly and professional staff. Within minutes of arriving we were taken to our... More

The resort was beautiful. Our room was a detatched little villa with our own pool, our own jacuzzi, a waterfall shower and a massage shower, comfy king bed and our own kitchen (the bathroom alone was the same size of some of the hotels we stayed in elsewhere). This was the JUNIOR suite. The room also had a few other... More

The name of the hotel says it all.... it was paradise. This was the first hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica - and BY FAR the best. Even though Arenal/La Fortuna was the first leg of our adventure honeymoon, I didn't want to leave. The rooms are spacious, each with its own patio and rocking chairs. I was so... More
