My sister and I traveled to Costa Rica in March of 2010 and stayed at Mountain Paradise Hotel in Arenal Costa Rica in the Premier Suite. We had the most amazing view of Arenal Volcano and a private jacuzzi in the balcony. The staff was very pleasant and kind. Isaac, Ivan, John are a few of the staff who went... More

The rooms were lovely and quiet.. I spent a morning in the private, outdoor jacuzzi tub and it was the most relaxing experience I've had in a while. My family stayed for three nights, and although it rained most of the time, the volcano was visible from all of our rooms on the third morning. The view was spectacular. The... More

All of the staff were very friendly and helpful from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. We were very pleased with this hotel and are planning to... More

There are a ton of hotels in La Fortuna to choose from, but we left without wishing or wondering if another place was better. The grounds were beautiful with a great view of the volcano. Staff was great. Pool with the swim up bar was great, and we didn't miss the termales. The only slight negative was that the restaurant... More

This hotel was beautifuly layed out on the hillsides next to volcano arenal. We were so close we could see rocks cascading down the side of the volcano. The rooms were all seperate villas with beautiful stone walkways between and lush flower bushes everywhere. The landscaping was up-kept perfectly as well. The pool had 3 small waterfalls emptying into pools... More

This hotel is beautiful, has amazing accommodations, and a stellar restaurant. The food there was simply amazing, and the food specialist, Ivan, was a very kind man who knew exactly what you would like after only a couple of days. An added bonus was the amazing shower - it was an indoor waterfall type thing, very hard to explain, but... More

Arrived for check in, friendly, courtious hosts showed me to my private room. It was amazining...private patio hot tub, "Rain-forest" shower, large LCD tv, computerized climate control, full-sliding double doors open to the sounds and fragrances outside. The heated pool was immaculated, with in-pool bar, television, music, and waterfall. The on-site restraunt featured great food at reasonable prices, the chef... More
