La Fortuna was our first destination on our first trip to Costa Rica. My wife booked our trip for our family of 4 after spending weeks doing research for the trip. Our lodging goals were cleanliness, 2 double beds, pool, restaurant, breakfast included, shuttle service, close to attractions for <$200/night. Hotel Mountain Paradise met our expectations. The staff was courtesy, the rooms and amenities were clean, and the hotel location was very convenient to attractions we visited. Wi-fi was only available in the lobby which was fine for us, we were on vacation. We utilized their transport service to pick us up from the San Jose airport and that worked out very well, no problems, and fair price. We booked our attractions online, vs booking through hotel, and saved money on the same vendor. The beds in our room were large, and comfortable. The kids loved the large flat screen TV that had American speaking programs available. The kids also loved the two-level heated pool. They liked it so much we decided not to go to one of the hot spring attractions. The complimentary breakfast w/ omelette station, and Costa Rican coffee hit the spot. The one area that needs improvement is the lunch and dinner offerings. During our visit they ran our of taco and quesadilla shells so those items were not available. The red meat selections we ordered were all over seasoned, especially with pepper. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at Hotel Mountain Paradise, it provided the things we wanted, within our budget, and in an ideal location. We would stay at this hotel again.
