We stayed at Hotel Mountain Paradise for the first half of our Costa Rica vacation. As others that have reviewed this hotel, I found the room to be a little "corny". The waterfall shower was not at all authentic and was plastic. There was NO storage at all for clothes -- not one chest of drawers and the closet was... More

I chose this place because of the reviews others left so I am going to do the same since I know it makes a difference. I went with my husband and 17 year old son. From the very second we arrived onto the property, we were greeted with delicious fruit juice in champagne flutes, a smiling receptionist who came outside... More

The suite was private, clean and quiet. One master suite, and a bedroom with a full bath off of the kitchenette, with a private plunge pool. The property was well maintained, the pool had a swim-up bar that was fun but not too noisy. The restaurant on-site served excellent meals, especially breakfast buffet with local cuisine and American staples like... More

We enjoyed fours nights in the hotel at one of the premium suites. The hotel grounds are truly wonderful. The private jacuzzi alongside the heated pool was the highlight of our stay. The jacuzzi was fantastic during rainy afternoons. We came without a car and had no problems getting from la fortuna airport and town using the hotel shuttle service.... More

We stayed in rooms 303 and 304. Great views of the volcano from the patios. Rooms were large and bathrooms were huge with a waterfall shower and a seperate spa shower. Waterfall shower was incredible. Spa shower was not so great; most of the shower heads were corroded and the whole shower unit was a bit crooked. Outdoor tub on... More

This hotel became our jungle home. The grounds and the view of the volcano are unbelievably beautiful. All the food is delicious, as are the drinks. The near by town of La Fortuna is a great day trip for shopping and restaurants. Above all else the staff was amazing. Service at both restuarants is impeccable. Micheal went above and beyond...

We were really impressed with this hotel. We found it excellent value for money. The rooms were extremely spacious and the bathrooms were quirky (they had a shower and waterfall type shower - it was all very natural looking). I had absolutely no complaints with the standard of the room. There was a really good choice at breakfast.

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at Hotel Mountain Paradise. The staff and grounds are both amazing. Truly a small slice of paradise. Rooms are basic with quirky waterfall showers - my son LOVED.
