The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, that is without question. The service was impeccable, almost too much service. The only things I can complain about are the bugs, and some other cleaning issues. The hotel is situated in a midst of a tropical garden, which is quite lovely,and the hotel /rooms are themed accordingly. This works, until the windows are left... More

The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The shrubs are well manicured, the flowers are amazing, the banana trees are tremendously huge. This place gave a fine first impression. Then I walked inside reception. The service was mostly cordial. The staff, generally speaking, is willing to help. It was weird, though. I got a vibe from many of the staff that the... More

The room and grounds at this hotel are awesome. We loved the look of our room and the yard that came with it. The bed, however, was quite possibly the worst we've ever slept on! It's like sleeping on a rock. We had a private jacuzzi and two rocking chairs on the deck, which was a nice touch. The bathroom... More

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
