I stayed here for a few days on a recent vacation to Costa Rica. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful, with such a peaceful and tranquil feeling. Rooms are really private, and very large. It was probably the most relaxed I've ever been. The private patios are a huge bonus...the rocking chairs on the room patio might have been my... More

This hotel was amazing. The natural environment was breathtaking. There were so many flowers, plants, and birds around. The view of the volcano was spectacular. Service was great. Ivan (Food & Beverage) always made sure that my friend and I were full and completely satisfied with our meals. The rooms are like villas. The bathrooms are amazing with 2 types... More

The accomadations for this hotel was set up for us by our travel agent and we had no idea what to expect. We arrived my private car up a bumpy but beautiful road where we were met by a security guard. He opened the gate and up the hand-laid brick road we went. Upon arrival we received hot towels infused... More

Gracias para todos. We had a wonderful time at the Hotel Mountain Paradise. This hotel truly lives up to its name. The hotel staff caters to your every need and desire. Giovanni (owner) and Ivan (property manager) are accommodating and welcoming. Let John at the front desk help you book your excursions. John is friendly, helpful and he knows his... More

My husband and I just returned from a five night stay at Mountain Paradise and couldn't wait to tell other people about this incredible resort hotel. EVERYTHING was excellent from the room, the grounds, the staff and the food. The just-finished swim bar was a treat! Every request we made was accomodated and all of the staff were so eager... More

All staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were clean and all plumbing working. The hot tub worked great. Wonderful waking up to the view of the volcano and the hummingbirds in the tropical landscaping surrounding the room, and the entire grounds. My only complaint was that the wetbar at the pool was being rebuilt while were there so we... More

Though the pool was being worked on, the layout and rooms were just super: how about a "falls" shower, jacuzzi, huge bed, and a view of the volcano....all reasonably priced. The staff was amazing. Say Hola to Erlan in the restaurant. Helped us to learn Spanish and Lucile in housekeeping. They will all be there for you. Can't say enough... More

Great location, fab view out to Arenal volcano, nice gardens and pool. However, they were building around the pool all day, which wasn't very romantic. Also, the restaurant looks lovely, the food was great but the personnel wasn't properly trained, they served water in their plastic (cheap) bottles and had paper napkins, not what you expect in an quite expensive...
