Loved the atmosphere, the rooms, the food, the service. Beautiful grounds, friendly and helpful staff. The only complaints I have are about the rooms. The jacuzzi overflowed and flooded the room when my son was in it. (Yes, maybe we should have been watching him better.) We used the towels to clean it up and the staff brought us more...

Everyone was friendly and helpful. Instead of rooms each 'suite' is a private bungalow. Loved the waterfall shower and the view of the volcano from our patio! Hummingbirds and tropical flowers everywhere we looked! We had breakfast included and enjoyed the 'comida tipica' and cooked-to-order omelets. Try the Lava Flow at the wet bar. Pool is smaller than it appears...

The pros of Hotel Mountain Paradise: It had a great view of the volcano. It was too foggy/cloudy to see the day we arrived, but the next two days were good. The hotel restaurant was good and the warm, hot spring pool with swim up bar was great. The rooms were big and the sheets and towels were clean. Not...

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...
