I absolutely loved this hotel! The service from the very beginning was great. My family was greeted with drinks and warm towels by smiling staff. The staff, whom unfortunately I cannot remember their names anymore, were spectacular. There was one gentleman who was rather young ( I think in his 20's) was very helpful and was ready to serve at... More

Spent four nights at Mtn. Paradise with our two teens and nine year old. The hotel is very nice and located in a perfect spot. The view of the volcano is breathtaking and the availability of adventure tours is great. Mtn. Paradise sits in a perfect spot to do the zip line, rafting, canyoning, etc tours (all of which are...

I totally recommend this hotel. The room was spacious, the bathroom was almost as big as the room. The shower was unbelievable! The view was spectacular although it is on the side of the volcano that the lava doesn't flow down. The grounds were well maintained. The hotel staff was very nice. There were tons of humingbirds. The pool bar... More

Although difficult to find if you are driving, it was well worth the trip to this hotel. The grounds are spectacular, the rooms are well appointed and the staff is friendly. This hotel is close to both La Fortuna, Tabacon, the hanging bridges and the volcano.

It had been very overcast/drizzly during our 1st two days to actually observe this. But on the day we left the sun was out, flowers in bloom,... More
