The Hotel Mountain Paradise was awesome and exceeded every expectation that we had. The service was great, the atmosphere was awesome not to leave out romantic and the amenities fulfilled all our needs. To this day we continue to reminisce about the fresh fruit topped pork chops, fresh fish and the beautiful views of the volcano, Arenal. We started our... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, and it is probably the best experience I have ever had. The hotel grounds are lush green with flowers everywhere. We had the view of the volcano right from our room! The facilities are well maintained, our room had a jacuzzi and they have a heated pool too. Everyone was very helpful.... More

Mountain Paradise Hotel sits adjacent to scenic Arenal Volcano. The area is no shortage of Hotels in La fortuna and around Mount Arenal . Mountain Paradise sets itself apart with Beautiful views of the volcano from many of the cabanas (just 48 in all so it always feels very private), meticulous gardens & excellent Meals. But what truly sets mountain... More

The view of the volcano was spectacular. The rooms were the nicest we stayed in while we were in Costa Rica. We stayed in three different hotels, and all were very nice, but this was definitely the nicest. The best bathroom hands down. The staff was super nice especially Ivan. The breakfast buffet was delicious and different every morning.

We stayed at Mountain Paradise for 4 nights in early October. Although it as about 2km down an unpaved road, a 4x4 is not needed. The rooms were some of the nicest I have had to pleasure of booking. The rooms are quite large and the showers are great (massaging and waterfall showers). We had a good view of the... More

All the comments about the hotel being "paradise" are true! The grounds are fantastic, the view of the volcano is superb - although the top can be covered sometimes. The hotel as some very unique design aspects that make it very nice. The showers, patios with jacuzzis and the open air restaurant. The biggest draw to this hotel is the... More
