From the moment you got there it felt like home. Or maybe the home you would have liked to have grown up in. From Jo who is you temporary mom, maybe a bit older (just kidding) to a fantastic staff. They set up excursions for us that we're a lot of fun. When we needed to venture out recommended restaurants... More

I don't even know where to begin... My husband and I stayed here last week for 3 nights in the Pelican Room. The room was nice and spacious, with a very comfortable bed and pillows, nice bathroom, a/c, fridge/kithcen etc... You really don't need the fridge or kitchen though, as the food here is FANTASTIC (more on this later)! Moving... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to come across this hotel on our drive from southern Costa Rica to Alajuela. It was easy to access, felt perfectly safe, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! The Monkey room was clean and comfortable, and Shelby and Jo were more than accommodating in every possible way. We arrived in the... More

My husband and I loved this hotel and the staff. We stayed 3 nights in the Toucan room and it was amazing. Great location with beautiful views of the ocean and sunsets.

We stayed in the Toucan and Monkey rooms at the Costa Paraiso in early August. This was our favorite place of the entire trip. Both rooms were large, clean, and wonderfully decorated.

Clean, comfortable, safe, and trusting place to stay. Have stayed at several places in Costa Rica this place makes the top of my list. Food is amazing for breakfast lunch and dinner but still would suggest eating in the towns around you so you can experience the local tastes.
