A real waterfall with live plants in the shower, great views, comfortable furnishings... Overall a good stay. The restaurant breakfast was good, the dinner not bad but a bit pricey for what it was.

Hotel Mountain Paradise is a short ride out of La Fortuna town. We found that to be perfect, but if you want to step outside of your hotel and into town, this may not be the hotel for you. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, and seemed more modern than some of the other properties we visited in Costa Rica. Our... More

We loved this hotel. You eah have your own 'house' with a shower that looks like a stone water fall and outside your bedroom is a whirlpool with 2 rocking chairs and beautiful tropical plants all around and we had a view of the volcano. I wanted to stay there forever! The staff is so helpful, polite, accomodating and happy.... More

We specifically planned our trip to Arenal so that we could take a GOOD LOOK at the Volcano. Everywhere has a view of the Volcano, and everything is positioned so you can see the Volcano, so it's not like you're getting cheated if you go to one place over the other, but the view from our Hotel and even more...

Hotel is lovely with wonderful rooms, waterfall shower, outdoor jacuzzi, and beautiful grounds. I loved the warm pool that stayed open late, even in the rain. I was disappointed at check in when we were given one key and told we had to leave a $75 deposit for a second key. It is in a wonderful remote location with nice... More

The accommodations aren't what I consider a hotel as these are more villas. Each has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths that are beautifully furnished. Sounds crazy, but the bathrooms are awesome! I was wondering why there are so many pics of them online but the waterfall jacuzzi in the bathroom is very cool. Each villa is surrounded by lush gardens... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and the view of the Volcano is expectacular. The service is excellent. John in the registration is very nice and knowledgeable, he recommended different tours that we enjoyed very much. Andres is one of the bartenders in the pool bar, excellent service and drinks. The Jr. Suite is very nice the bathroom is out... More

We arrived at Mountain Paradise after a long trip from Torteguero. We were greeted by cold towels and welcome cocktails, and friendly reception staff. We were taken to our rooms on a little golf buggy and passing the pool and wet bar and driving through the gardens my children exclaimed that 'we didnt think we were going 5 star!' (unfortunately...

From the moment we arrived (cool, eucalyptus scented towels and freshly squeezed juice in the lobby) to the very end, we had a wonderfully relaxing time at Mountain Paradise. Had a great time at the swim up bar with Carlos, the bartender, and also enjoyed swimming in the heated pools at night during a lightening storm (pool is open all... More

We got to the hotel after over 6 hours of riding a boat and driving (all the way from Tortuguero). We have 3 teenagers + (the eldest is actually 20 already ). We got two adjacent junior suits with a magnificent view of the mountain. We were thrilled by the huge rooms, the generous beds and of course the waterfall... More
