“The Best Spa Experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

As a "treat" for myself I went to Paradise Inn for a breast reduction.

Arrived at the airport and did not have anyone to pick me up ------------- was thinking I had made a mistake in traveling from Atlanta, GA to CR. Shuttle did arrive 30 min. later. This was the ONLY problem I experienced the entire 10 days.

The staff was very supportive, personalized, comforting! Each day I was escorted to the Dr.s office for consultation.

After surgery, I was taken back to Paradise and assisted by on site nursing to get comfortable and change bandages.

It was total relaxation in an absolutely beautiful setting. And the meals --------- oh my ---prepared with local ingredients homemade receipes -------------- I would go back just for the food alone!!

I highly reccommend my stay here ----------- you will love it!!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2009

I arrived on march 17th.I was in San Jose by myself to have surgery was quite nervous. The morning of the 18th i noticed there were no their guests around. So I started looking around for pool and jacuzzi something to d before my consult for sugery. none of this existed. I was a low carb diet i was provide pasta. I asked to use phone to call home i was refused. i went on the internet and was complaining to a friend. The next thing I know I was being told I had to leave they thought I was not going to pay. They somehow read my email. They went through all my personnel items something's were missing. When I refused to give the key before i could get credited on my gold card I was attacked by a 6 ft staff member. I was then charged for a cab to be taken somewhere else. I am still fighting to get my money back they charged my gold card. They called me a druggie and said it was my imagination. Well it on my gold card. The amenities do not exist. it was horrifying experience. I caution anyone from going there. Surgery in a foreign country is freighting enough without this reprehensible abuse. if it were not for my Doctors at The Rosenstock Clinic I do not know what would have happened to me there.

Warm Regards, Donna
