We were here for two nights. We loved the warm rock pools even in the rain - nice bar with menu attached. We were quite far from the office and pool but enjoyed the grounds and our private patio with tub. The birds early in the morning were the best. The room was great and loved the bathroom with the...

Had a GREAT 3-day stay last month at Hotel Mountain Paradise. Friendly staff. Warm welcome with fruit juices. Beautiful grounds! Awesome view of Arenal. Great breakfasts at Ave del Parasio Restaurant. Spacious rooms, functioning AC. Agree with other reviewers that the highlight of the room is the bathroom. Kids loved the waterfall shower. I can understand how some might find...

The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed waterfall shower. the hot water was not working on the jacuzzi tub, and they sent...

We stayed for 2 nights. The grounds are well landscaped and lots of birds enjoy the gardens. The room and bathroom were very spacious, however our balcony was not as private as I would have hoped. The warm pool was enjoyable when large families were out for daily adventures. The food was surprisingly good at the on-site restaurant Koita- and...

Me and my wife had a great experience lodging in this place, since the arrival getting those fresh cocktails to the tasty food served in their traditional restaurant. The pools are small but well mantained. Everywhere on the grounds is canvassed by lush greenery and flowers. There is a mix of couples and families, but most we met on our...

Staff is friendly and helpful...rooms are a little dated but comfortable, and each room is actually a single detached "villa" with a jacuzzi. Beautiful grounds with lots of privacy, and if the weather is good, you get to see Arenal Volcano practically "in your face". Spotty wi fi, but not a major issue for us.

We came to Costa Rica to enjoy the natural wonders, but did not expect to see so many tropical birds right outside our room. The lush property of Hotel Mountain Paradise is a true paradise for beautiful birds of all colors and descriptions. We dropped our bags even before reaching our room and stopped to spot Tanagers and Orioles darting...
