We loved our four night stay at Mountain Paradise. The view from our room, the restaurant, the pool,reception area and would say any place on the grounds were great. Staff was always great and would help in any way they could. They gave free rides into town and were always there to pick us up on time. Breakfast was very good, with plenty of food with good choices, Would love to visit again some day soon. Lots of things to do in the area and could spend a week and not see and do every thing.

There is a reason 4.5 star rating. Everything that has been said about this hotel by the other reviewers are true. I just wanted to add one thing. I had my first Guaro sour at the pool bar and I have been trying it again in the different parts of CR but nothing came close. We also loved the private backyard of the room and the jacuzzi in it.

We recently stayed here for 4 nights in early December, as 2 couples traveling together. The staff was very courteous and happy. They provided top service, be it for dinning, clean rooms, concierge, or transporting us and our bags to/from our rooms. My thanks to each one for their personal attention.

We really liked the 'fun' factor of the hotel: a waterfall shower in the bathroom, a mini hot tub on our own private patio, the plants and moss growing on the roof, and all the birds and tropical plants present on the hotel grounds. As a birder and plant lover, it was great to get up in the morning and start my day admiring the native plants and wildlife right out my door. Not to mention the morning views of the Arenal volcano while sipping coffee at the restaurant.

We enjoyed the options for dinning/drinks at their main restaurant next to the pool, at the pool, and just down the lane at their 'outside' restaurtant. There was also dinning options at another hotel next door. This flexability was great after being out all day. And the complimentary breakfast was really convenient- we got to explore the area on a full stomach each day.

We found a good deal via the internet, which really sealed the deal for us. I would stay here again if in the Arenal area, because the value was well worth it.

Room Tip: ask for a volcano view room

I chose Hotel Mountain Paradise based on trip advisor reviews and it was everything I expected and more. The moment we arrived we were greeted by the hotel receptionist and then driven to our room on a golf cart with our luggage. The room was much larger than we expected and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a great view of the volcano from our back porch along with 2 rocking chairs and a jacuzzi. The king bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom, as past reviewers have mentioned, has a water fall next to the shower and it's very spacious. The restaurant was good, we only had breakfast there which is a buffet of a mix of american and typical Costa Rican food, and you can order a custom omelette. The pool was nice and loved taking swims at night because it is heated. Overall, excellent hotel with great service, beautiful property, and conveniently located to La Fortuna town and the hot springs.

Very nice with wonderful rooms. We had room 102 which is the nicest location. Maria and Majid at the front desk were terrific. They had a waterfall in the bathroom. Wow!
The only negative issues were the breakfast, which was quite mediocre, and the lack of a swimming pool. They have 2 foot deep warm pools but the whole resort only offers 8 loungers for the entire property. I'd still recommend it, but not for kids because it the swimming pool.
