We arrived late at night after our taxi driver had taken us to the wrong hotel NOTE: the paradise mountain lodge IS NOT hotel mountain paradise, so make sure your driver is clear because teh other place is waaaaayy off the beaten path. The guest service was fantastic from the minute we checked in. The girl greeted us by name... More

Somewhere between the amazing rooms, friendly staff, and first class food it hits you. "I'm in paradise." My girlfriend and I stayed in room 308 for two nights in early May. It was nothing short of spectacular. We had drinks by the pool bar during the day. Andres was the bartender, he is a great guy, and was very helpful... More

We reserved 3 rooms for 4 nights and paid in full in advance (our mistake). Several weeks before the trip, part of our group had to cancel for personal reasons. I wrote to Mountain Paradise and asked if we would be able to cancel one of the rooms. We noted that it was high season and they would likely have... More

We just returned from a week in Costa Rica, including a 2-night stay at the Mountain Paradise hotel in La Fortuna. This hotel is incredible, and I cannot say enough positive things about it. Every single aspect exceeded our expectations - from the location (beautiful views) and amenities (2 showers in the bathroom and a private hot tub on the... More

My family of four rented a master suite here in March for three nights. We had a very good time here during our stay. The location is great and the view of the volcano is amazing. Make sure that you set aside some time to relax by the pool and take in the view of the volcano (provided it isn't... More

We just returned from a 2-night stay at the Mountain Paradise hotel. Though the location was fantastic, and extremely close to the Arenal Volcano, I don't know if we'd recommend this to others. The hotel is difficult to get to. The turnoff from the main road is not all that well marked and leads to a very long and rocky... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mountain Paradise Hotel for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. The hotel is only a year old and we went in low season (we were practically by ourselves), but they've clearly put a lot of thought into customer service and ran a tight ship. The rooms are private, quiet, big and comfortable,... More
