On arrival which was later than we had thought, we were made to wear a non-removal bracelet (hospital style/prison style) which did not serve a purpose during our visit. Went straight to the room which entailed a very steep climb (we were part of a coach party) in the dark with very little lighting to show us the way or...

The setting is spectacular with a great view of the volcano from your front porch. It's built on a hill so there is some walking involved. The spa is excellent with skilled masseuses. The pool is quite lovely and they have small mineral pools which are also a treat. It was nice to have air conditioning too. They have a...

We spent one night here as part of a tour. The grounds are large and there are great views of the Arsenal volcano from every location. The hot spring pools are a nice way to relax at the end of the day. The rooms are individual cabins and are very nice (with a/c, hairdryers, coffee, safe, plenty of outlets). The...

The staff here is VERY friendly and helpful. There are multiple natural hot springs on site varying in temperatures from pretty hot to mildly warm. Don't pack a white suit, as the minerals will stain it yellow. My family and I spent a lot of time in the wet bar, where the kids swam around while my husband and I...

Arenal Paraiso is a beautifully landscaped, tidy resort with charming individual cabins, a few km outside town. Rooms are impeccably clean. Lobby staff was always helpful. The food in the on-site restaurant was sub-standard and warrants the $10 cab ride to go into town for food.

Our stay here was pleasant. The rooms are spacious, the restaurant has good food and multiple activities right in the hotel - hot springs, zip lining and sloths on the trees. The hot springs was a big plus right in the hotel we would unwind after all the adventure activities with a drink soaking in the hot springs.

My review is probably going to sound a lot like some others already posted, but I think it's worth repeating... - The bathrooms are badly in need of some upgrading. Showers are shoddy, hot water is unreliable, and sometimes it'll just shut off while you are standing there soapy. The towels smelled like chemicals and were rough as sandpaper. -...
