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...

This place is simply amazing, since when you arrive and be greeted with a delicious fruit punch. The staff super friendly and always more than willing for helping. Freddy at the front desk helped us a lot organizing out excursions and set up our adventures. The rooms are well mantained and the waterfall shower is beautiful as much as the...

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and loved every minute of it! We rented our own car which is very do-able, I just recommend paying extra for the GPS to make it easier to get around. Upon our arrival in the lobby, we were greeted with fresh fruit juices. Not sure what was in them but they were delicious!...

This was my favorite hotel but it''s more like "casitas" spread all over. Mine was No. 310 near the back of the property. Very large room with private patios, rocking chairs that provide full view of the Arenal volcano, AC, TV and has two unique shower choices, one with a rain shower and next to it a beautiful hand painted...

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Mountain Paradise, the staff, drivers and guides are all wonderful. But you should set your expectations. It was nice that the "rooms" were either duplexes or small free standing buildings, all with private porches with rocking chairs and an outdoor jetted tub. Our room came with a separate dining table and 4 chairs. Beds...
