We had a great time at this wonderful, incredible breathtaking resort. Words can't explain the beauty of this country and the natural setting of this hotel as it flows eloquently with its natural setting. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious, up-to-date and mind-blowing. Each chateau had something different to offer, the natural landscaping was great for morning, afternoon and evening... More

We stayed at Mountain Paradise 9/20-9/23 for the first half of our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time. The entire hotel staff was always friendly and helpful and always seemed busy cleaning something! The hotel grounds themselves were impeccible. All of the plants were gorgeous. Nothing looked dirty. It had an AMAZING view of the Arenal Volcano. I... More

We had a great time here. There were a few kinks but the staff fixed them right away. The rooms were super nice (beds are hard so be prepared) and we really liked the pool and the jacuzzi tub on our patio. The food was okay but La Fortuna is a cute little town with lots of other options. There... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The pool and swim up bar, along with our huge room and outdoor jacuzzi tub, were the highlights of this hotel. The staff are young and seem to be getting trained in the service industry, especially in the restaurant. Overall they were great, but for example, when I... More

This place is really beautiful. The rooms are exquisite. There is an option of shower that looks like a cascade. Every room has a terrace with a view to Arenal Vulcano. And the hot pool has a perfect view of it. Be aware though that, depending on the room you get, it can be far very from the reception, so... More

We had 3 folks who stayed at the Mountain Paradise on 9/4/11, the location of the hotel is great, where you can see the Volcano easily. What we were taken aback by was the cold-water jacuzzi in our room, the lack of a clean bathroom, and the poor service at the front desk. Consistently we were told that there would... More

This hotel offers the complete package for couples and families - it's in a wonderful location with a breathtaking view of the volcano. The hotel offers excellent amenities, including a heated pool and spacious lobby and on-site restaurant. The hotel staff are genuinely friendly, caring and helpful. After the long jeep-boat-jeep commute from Monteverde, the hotel made us feel that... More

The hotel grounds and the room were very clean and well kept. The staff was very helpful and gave great advice when it came to restaurants and activities. We had a suite with our own hot tub, waterfall shower, etc. and for the price you cant beat this. The only thing I would recommend is renting your own car and... More

My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had three separate rooms and although ours didn't offer the best view, our other friends' rooms did. The views of the volcano were amazing . The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is great as well. My only complaint is the food at the hotel. Do yourself... More

What a beautiful, beautiful hotel. The staff was MORE than friendly and MORE than helpful. We loved our room (so unique!), the grounds are beautiful and well-kept, the food at the restaurant and wet bar was delectable, the pool area is gorgeous...
