We stayed at the Mountain Paradise for 3 nights at the end of December. The room was very large with a comfortable bed. We loved the waterfall shower but had a hard time regulating the water pressure and temperature. We ran out of hot water with each shower. The back patio had a jacuzzi tub which we were not able to use because if lack of hot water. The room was made up beautifully but not done at convenient times. The staff (housekeeping as well as front desk) did not speak English as well as we expected at a hotel of this caliber. Restaurant buffet breakfast was great. Other meals were not great and overpriced. Restaurant service was spotty. Shuttle service to town was very limited, forcing us to pay for a taxi back if we wanted to have dinner in the town. Grounds are lovely, with many hummingbirds and other types. We were excited to see a macaw one afternoon. Nice pool with swim up bar. With a few improvements I would highly recommend this hotel.
