The moment we stepped in the reception area, the staff immediately points out the breathe taking Arenal through the gigantic window, I was in awe and no longer tired and sleepy from my long car ride after a red eye flight. It was a great start to our vacation. Our Room was 202. It is a master suite with private... More

Do not listen to negative reviews, some people will find fault in the smallest details! This place is an overall greta hotel! We stayed here at the end of June and are ready to book our trip here for next year! The view alone makes this hotel stand out from the others. You can see the volcano from all the... More

We were a group of 21 and we were treated awsome. On one of the nights, for dinner they prepared a table to accomodate all of us. We were so impressed. The staff treated us great. Andres went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable, even joking with us. The morning that only part of the group was... More

Love this place and its beatiful surrounding. Lacking a few details in design, concept and service. The staff there doesn't seem to be happy, unfortunately. The only person that were warm and happy was our driver, Manuel who picked us up at the local airport and a couple of front desk persons in our second day of stay. The food... More

This hotel is gorgeous, but certain details left a bit to be desired. The food is just ok, would not recommend eating here if you can avoid it, especially when there is pretty decent food in La Fortuna. The rooms are all 2x2, so you can kind of here the people next to you. Overall, if you can find a... More

On a delightful trip to Costa Rica, Mountain Paradise was a severe disappointment. There was a long litany of things wrong and management did not care. The place at first looks beautiful but the underlying details are devilish. When we arrived, the room safe was locked and could not be opened. It turned out that the battery was dead. The... More

What an amazing hotel at a great rate! My boyfriend and I had the most wonderful time at Hotel Mountain Paradise. You know it's going to be good when someone hands you a tropical drink the minute you step in! The grounds are lush, exotic and well maintained. Our room had a private patio with jacuzzi...we saw wild horses run... More

After flying into San Jose and staying one night, we headed up to Arenal, where we stayed two nights at the Hotel Mountain Paradise. Let me just say that the name pretty aptly describes this place. I could pile on the compliments as others before me have, but no need to reinvent the wheel here. This place is wonderful and... More
