The grounds were very well kept and beautiful.The pool area was great with the 4 little seperate pools. The adults seemed to have fun in the evening with the swim up bar - it... More

I recently was married in La Fortuna and this hotel not only hosted 30 of our wedding guests, but also hosted our reception in their new, beautiful reception hall overlooking Arenal Lake & volcano. The staff was incredibly accommodating, always as helpful as could be whether we were dining with our friend Roy in their restaurant or enjoying Andres' tasty... More

After staying in several other areas in Costa Rica, in more spartan establishments, it was pure bliss to arrive at Mountain Paradise! The view was awesome, the grounds were beautiful, and the staff all incredibly friendly and helpful. The heated pools and waterfalls and the swim-up bar made it unnecessary for us to spend money going to one of the... More

This resort is paradise! The rooms are like nothing you have probably ever stayed in. Hummingbirds flock around this place like Robins in Pennsylvania in the springtime, mostly due to the beautiful flora. Unbelievable! The pool is heated (not so sure from the volcano as the pool bar staff would have you believe) but it was devine! Each room has... More

My husband and I stayed at Mountain Paradise for 3 nights in May 2011. The grounds are beautiful with a wonderful view of the volcano when it isn't covered with clouds. The staff was great - very helpful and friendly. We arrived late after driving in from San Jose airport and were greeted with cold towels and juice and taken... More

Honestly I have only amazing things to say about this hotel. My boyfriend and I drove from San Jose to Mountain Paradise and upon arrival we were greeted with cold towels and some of the best fresh juice I've ever drank. We were then driven up on a golf cart to the "bungalow" where our Premium room was by Kaylor... More

This hotel has gorgeous grounds, great views and the rooms are pretty nice also. It is located close to La Fortuna, the hot springs, the hanging bridges and the waterfall. It is up an unpaved road but you get used to that quite quickly in Costa Rica. The rooms are scattered around the landscaped grounds in small buildings. The rooms... More
