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.

Although we thought a hoax had been perpetrated on us the 1st two days we were there, the morning we left we discovered that indeed, a smoking volcano was present in the vacinity. 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

"hats off" to mountain paradise for being a new, innovative hotel with exceptional customer service! Exodus Fitness Retreats Girlfriend Getaways, best priced margaritias in town, exceptional service by Ivan and his homemade sangeria and attention to details, bartender deigo, and our special thanks to giovanni...we will be back!

We arrived Thursday afternoon - our accommodations (Master Suite) was superb. From Thursday to Monday, we were truly in Paradise. The volcano view from our room was spectacular. Great restaurant. Fun wet bar pool. Staff was very, very friendly – truly, a great experience. We highly recommend Mountain Paradise. Great area tours - Volcano tour, the rainforest hanging bridge tour... More

l'm afraid if l say how nice this place is we will never get the great rate we got again! They are fairly new, so they had a special promotion rate. The rooms are huge with comfy beds, amazing bathroom (although could have used another mirror somewhere since there were 3 gals especially!), lovely grounds and views, and the food... More

The resort is fantastic. The rooms are spacious but cozy, a little dark, but have a fantastic waterfall shower that isn't cheesy or contrived. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the hotel pool is extremely nice with a great bar, great Latin music and attentive staff. The food was very good at each meal. The best thing was the fantastic... More

The hotel accommodations were outstanding! Very quiet. The view of Arenal (volcano) magnificent.! The hotel has lush grounds, an amazing restaurant and the pool with swim up bar - fabulous. The service we recieved each day from the food and beverage manager, Ivan, couldn't have been any better. We were treated like royalty! I recommend this hotel to anyone going... More

Hotel Mountain Paradise was the most luxurious place we stayed on our trip to Costa Rica... and the goofiest. The rooms are HUGE, but lack adequate lighting. The beds are KING-SIZED, but have scratchy sheets that make it hard to sleep. The patios have VOLCANO VIEWS (if not cloudy), but they're so heavily landscaped/planted for privacy, you feel closed in... More

Amazing from the private suites to the waterfall shower and the wet bar in the heated pool simply amazing. The staff was nothing short of amazing from the owner Don Giovanni to Ivan the host with the most. Truly an amazing place to stay and visit. Will be back many times! Thanks
