This is the BEST most enjoyable hotel Inn in all of Central America! Nothing comes close to this hotel Inn in all of Costa Rica. This is the very Best for your money. The location is the BEST most scenic location in all of Costa Rica. Nothing compares. This Inn is only a 40 cent bus ride into San Jose... More

The staff was very friendly and very attentive to whatever we needed. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. We even told our friends that live in Cartago and they will most... More

Having stayed in the Multiplaza area of Escazu, I wanted something a little more quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of Escazu. The Best Western Paradise Inn was the perfect solution. The views over downtown San Jose are incredible - both during the day and at night when the lights are laid out at your feet. The staff... More

I booked Best Western Paradise Inn & Spa for the last 3 days of my holidays in Costa Rica with the idea of having a quiet, peaceful place to get myself ready for the work afterwards. Indeed sitting in front of the window of my room was such a visual luxury. I very much agree with lots of reviews here... More

I have stayed here few times and recommended including my family. The location has breathtaking views and you are just 15 minutes away from town. Every need and want I had was satisfied, they will take care of you. Paradise made sure to communicate and discuss my itinerary and dietary needs prior to arrival.
