We loved this hotel so much that we canceled the second half of our vacation on the beach and stayed here. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They even went into town and bought the makings for Rice Krispie Treats for my sister's birthday!
Perfect spot for honeymooners or a romantic getaway, but our group of girls had fun too. Bar closes at 10, so make sure you get something from town if you want to continue the party. Shuttle leaves a few times a day, but cab into town only costs about $11. If shuttle driver isn't busy, he can drive you for $20US roundtrip.
Rooms are huge and very clean, but close your windows unless you want to wake up with todos los insectos del mundo en el bano (I know from personal experience)!
Restaurant is ok, bar menu was a little more reliable. Free breakfast is nice, but only 3 different options. Definitely go into town for lunch or dinner if you can.
Booking exclusions through the hotel is really easy and didn't seem that much more expensive than doing it yourself.
Spa services were cheap and good. Definitely get a facial or massage.
If Mountain Paradise is the only hotel that I ever go to again, that is fine with me! I can't wait to go back next year!
