We stayed for 4 nights at this resort outside Fortuna. While there are many places on the road outside Fortuna, this was great. No hidden surprises - except that it was very clean(recently renovated) with beautiful accomodations. Our bathroom had a waterfall shower, very comfortable beds and a big TV with cable. Just outside were flowers and hummingbirds while the... More

We decided to have our annual paperwork fest in Arenal instead of San Jose. The hotel was absolutely breathtaking. The cabin was huge, the bathroom was a work of art (loved the waterfall). The staff were cheerful (not usually the case in Costa Rica) and the service was second to none. I loved it so much, I ended up staying... More

Though it did have a pretty good view of the volcano, it was the wrong side. We were looked at it from the north and it was always cloudy...and lava flow in the evenings we learned is only visible from the west. The restaurant was horrible. My wife and I paid $43 for a horrible soup appetizer and quite possibly... More

This is a very pretty place with nicely furnished rooms including mountain spring showers in the suite bathrooms. A good start but we ran into too many problems to recommend this hotel to others. We found the service was inadequate-during our stay we encountered only ill-trained personnel on site. For example, we wanted to visit the hot springs at Tabacon,... More

I did a ton of research on hotels in Fortuna and ended up going with Mountain Paradise because they were running a special that made them the least expensive option (we had a deluxe suite). The room was huge and accomodated my family of 4 very well. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of our room and the hotel... More

Although we had a warm welcome after a long journey, we wouldn't rate this place. On arrival, the rooms looked quite impressive with a waterfall shower and a bathroom large enough to have a party in! The room would also have been amazing if it hadn't been so damp. The sheets on the bed were wet which didn't make for... More

Have you ever been to a hotel where the MANAGER drives you 3 hours away from the hotel to make sure you have a good ride? The manager and his family run this hotel and are so sweet. you look out of your room and see a perfect view of the volcano, from every room. service was great. there is... More

We stayed at Hotel Mountain Paradise for 4 nights and loved every second of our stay. While we were there, we felt like we were the only people there (it was before the peak season) and the staff was great. Rooms were very romantic with a great view. The free shuttle was nice, but required some planning to coordinate with... More

In the best spot it could be located, you'll find Mountain Paradise. All starts in the reception, with Volcan Arenal framed in the window. A welcoming garden with hot swimming pool leads you to the unbelievable rooms, perfectly decorated on country patterns. Is difficult to chose a higlhight! The superking beds, jacuzzi on the porch or the cascade in the... More
