The location, facilities and staff were excellant! We were treated like we were the only guests there. It is a beautiful place to relax. Plenty to do for those who are active also. The view of the volcano is magnificent. Want to go back ASAP!

We stayed at the hotel as family trip. We were 4 adults: mother, sister and two brothers. Rooms at the charming, though the smell of mildew in the shower, but you can expect that at this time of year (rainy season). A better time is after Nov 15, already the beginning of the dry season. Hotel's food is not the...

What an incredible tropical paradise. The grounds were exquisite and the rooms were great. The room had a stone waterfall shower and a separate multi-jet high pressure(or not) shower. Very nicely appointed. The private patio had a spa tub and chaise lounges. Great swim up bar with food and reasonably priced drinks. Shuttle was available to town although we did...

The best hotel I stayed during my trip to Costa Rica. The hotel grounds are well kept. It has a great view of the volcano, from almost every point. The heated pool was rather useful during the cold nights of the rainy season. Breakfast (incl. in room rate) was a la carte (finally a break from the buffet!). Dinner was...

The environment is amazingly beautiful. But about the hotel.... We rented a car and drove the country. Very easy to find. The hotel staff was very friendly. Our rental car broke...

We went to this hotel on our honeymoon. We received an upgrade to a nicer room because of this. The room was large, had an outdoor private hot tub, and a very unique waterfall shower in the bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable. We really enjoyed the beautiful volcano views from our back porch and the lush landscaping of...

My husband and I spent our first nights of our honeymoon here and I was very pleased. We aren't terribly picky about the level of 'swank' of a place...Mountain Paradise had just the right touch. With private bungalow rooms, beautiful flowers galore, and a great view of the volcano...our honeymoon was both comfortable and aesthetically on the money for our...

This charming hotel is located about halfway between La Fortuna and Tabacon Hot Springs. If you have a car it is very convenient for exploring the Arenal area. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are in bungalows with a central building for dinning and the front desk all in a Costa Rican style. While the star level...
