We visited Costa Paraiso back in September 2012 for 2 nights. We had a beautiful drive from San Jose airport; however, by the time we arrived it was pouring rain. While waiting in the car figuring out how we were going to get out in the rain we were greeted by Sandra carrying umbrellas. She took us straight to our room to get settled in. The resort is beyond words. The rooms were relaxing, the pool was small but nice. The views were incredible!! We enjoyed talking to the other couples staying there. The last day we were there a large family with children arrived and took over the pool which made us glad we were leaving. We literally sat an entire day on the upper deck and looked at the tide coming in over the rocks. I love the beach and unfortunately felt that even in low tide it was too rocky for me to venture out into. There are few restaurants nearby. The ones we tried were just o.k. The restaurant on the property was just o.k. too. The food was rather bland. I am not a huge salt person but everything really needed salt added to it. We decided to venture to another part of Costa Rica after our stay just to find a better beach to enjoy. Overall the resort was really nice and we would have stayed had we had better beached to play in.
