“Great Place to start your adventures from with a spectacular view”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stayed here to start our honeymoon before moving to the Westin on the beach and this place won hands down. The complimentary breakfast was amazing as you looked over the volcano with gardens and trees covered with flowers. The rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. They helped me out in a time of crisis when I was pick pocketed in La Fortuna. They have a free shuttle into town and can help you plan many adventures. I ate at the restaurant there and it was delicious and romantic. My only small complaint was the water pressure was a bit low. I plan to visit this Hotel again. The hotel is safe and secluded, Just watch out for the pickpocketers in town as it seemed from the police that this was common place that they were returning wallets, as they only took the cash.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a room closer to the front of the hotel (like 107) as these have the best...

If I could stay and live there, this is where I would be.The view is amazing...all over the hotel you can see the volcano. The hotel overall and staff were amazing. very humble people, polite, speak perfect English for those that do not speak Spanish. The hotel provides all transportation to all the area of the Arenal and the tours can be booked with them with a tour guide included...so well worth it! Already planning my trip for next year and definitely planning to stay there again!

Right from the arrival, the receptionist made us feel like royalty. We sat back with refreshments whilst our check in was registered and then there was no time wasted as the golf cart was on hand to take us on a tour of the hotel whilst on our way to the room. The room was impeccable! Beautiful interior design and utmost comfort with every facility you can think of. No expense spared, even your own pool on the patio. The hotel pool is set in a natural rock surrounding and has hot spring water with a swim up bar. The plants and trees surrounding all are so tropical and enormous, they really make you feel like you are in a Jurassic park setting, especially with the view of the Volcano, which, from the angle of the hotel appears to be so close .... its right in your face and a perfect conical shape. Amazing. All of that, along with the 1st class staff really made our stay their wonderful, We will definitely be going back!

We stayed here on a girls trip for 3 nights. The hotel room was clean, huge, had our own showers (2 in each room) and our own patio. It might have been meant for a couple...but the layout was great.
We ate and had lovely cocktails at the swim up bar in the nice hot spring pool. It was perfect. Staff was friendly and food was good. The drinks ended up being quite expensive but the food and hotel room price was not bad.
If I go back to LaFortuna, I will stay there again. We went to another hot spring hotel and it wasn't as nice, had poor quality food and more expense!
Thank you Hotel Mountain Paradise for a wonderful trip!

Wow wow wow. I was here during a rain season but didn't get to see any rain. Lucky I guess. Place is incredible. It's tucked away in a jungle. Hotel consist of lots of small eco cottages varying from single unit with private pool and jacuzzi to double unit cottages with jacuzzi. Almost all of them have a patio with a view of volcano Arenal... Rooms are huge with the best bathroom I have been in. There are two showers, one looks like a real waterfall with real plants surrounding you and another is modern looking shower. Had only bfast there witch was fine so no comments on there restaurant food. Pool is cool but small... Don't forget to check out Tabacon spa. I have never seen anything similar in my life. They have natural volcano heated water with real nice and relaxing set up. Looks like water falls in the middle of the jungle. Quick tip... If you go there at night it is cheaper to get in and just keep a bracelet and you can go back next day for all day ;) don't tell anyone... Enjoy!
