The breakfast is the best in Costa Rica. The hot springs are incredible and their zip line tour is very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The superior rooms have great views of the volcano. The property is beautifully landscaped and private.

We only stayed here one night on a recent rip through the area. We have stayed in many hotels in Costa Rica over the years, and the Paraiso compares favorably for both its service and the food. However the room we had was are quite dated and overall need improvement. The welcoming staff at the front desk and in the... More

We stayed in rooms 103&104 During daytime it's OK because right in front of you is the volcano but at night you can the cars and trucks passing by.The staff at the lodge were inconsistent with their service I noticed that they gave welcome drinks to groups but not solo or two travellers

The staff was exceptional. I lost my camera upon arrival and the staff went above and beyond to get it back to me. The cabins were cute. The only noise was from the animals.

We stayed three nights at the hotel. Really smelly room. You can hear practically anything what's going on on the neighbors room. I've not visited any of the hot springs in the area, so can't compare, but used the one at this hotel. It is 4 or 5 small pools that start off hot at the top, and get progressively... More

This hotel is clean and the view of Arenal Volcano while sitting on the porch of the Supreme cabin is outstanding. The staff is friendly and restaurant food delicious albeit a bit pricey.

You could see the volcano from our place. Rooms were large and very clean. Breakfast was huge and was a very good start for the day. Personnal was polite. The bar in the pool was nice but the drinks were kind of expensive. The hot springs were fun, though not natural. A bit far from the village, but the bus... More
