“Stay Here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This hotel was the perfect start to our vacation. When we arrived the staff was very welcoming and organized. They gave us a tour of the grounds before taking us to our villa. The rooms are very nice and spacious. We ate at the restaurant every morning for breakfast. Their was a lot to choose from at the buffet. One morning a blue macaw flew in and the staff began to feed it fruit. There is plenty of wildlife to see on hotel grounds. After seeing other hotels in the area I was certainly glad we chose Hotel Mountain Paradise. It was the perfect size resort where you can meet a lot of the other hotel guests. Overall this place is perfect and the staff is beyond nice!

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights a few weeks ago. They upgraded us to a honeymoon suite and the accommodations were out of this world! We had a private swimming pool on the deck, another private porch, an enormous hot tub in the villa, a kitchenette, a beautiful king sized bed, a huge bathroom with two showers, a flat screened TV and more space that we knew what to do with. The grounds and landscaping at the hotel are gorgeous. Beautiful flowers and lush plants everywhere you look. The pool is even beautiful and the wet bar is very inviting. You can go to the restaurant on the grounds or you can choose to have food delivered to your room. The staff was wonderful. I wish i remembered all of their names. One young man in particular, Daniel, was so attentive and was always there anytime we needed him and for anything we needed. He recommendations for restaurants and tours were spot on. Every staff member that we encountered was very nice.
There is a free shuttle that brings you into La Fortuna several times a day if you choose to go.
This is the type of hotel that you could vacation here and never even leave the grounds. It's so peaceful, relaxing and beautiful and the staff will get you anything you need. I hope hope hope that I will return here one day! I DEFINITELY recommend staying at Hotel Mountain Paradise if in La Fortuna!

Room Tip: We had room 400. Honeymoon suite right on a hill with a view of the volcano and a short walking dist...

The rooms at this place were so nice it made me not want to leave the grounds. Each room has a view of the volcano- you can see it right from your bed! There were 2 showers in the giant bathroom- one was a 7 head shower and the other was a waterfall shower! Oh and if you want to take a bath there is a jacuzzi bath on your private patio! The pool was another awesome perk! It was heated and had a swim up bar- we ate all our meals while sitting IN the pool! The bar tender there was really great too- super funny guy that knew how to mix a mean drink! Our room was at the far end of the grounds but no problem- call the front desk and they will come pick you up in a golf cart! The only negative was the beds were rock hard. My boyfriend likes hard beds but even thought these beds were too hard. The beauty of this place made my back hurt a little less.

Room Tip: Ask for a soft bed!

We stayed three wonderful days here in August. Our arrival was during a torrential downpour. After our warm welcome by the staff my two daughters and I chased a wild Armadillo around the beautiful grounds in the warm rain then wound up in the hot tub. The weather cleared and we were treated to a spectacular scene of Arenal Volcano at sunset in our back yard. The remainder of our stay continued to be equally wonderful with beautiful scenery and fabulous service...almost didn't need to leave the hotel grounds.

Room Tip: They're all good!

We stayed three nights here while adventuring around Arenal. We were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite and loved the spacious and private bungalow. There was a private plunge pool directly outside the bungalow and a fully functional hot tub inside the bungalow. There were also two showers in the large bathroom. In addition, the bed was comfortable and firm. The grounds were beautiful and access was restricted by a security post next to the road. The heated pool was also very enjoyable and relaxing. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. The only issues were with the door lock that didn't always unlock and the room safe that wasn't programmable.

Room Tip: Request the honeymoon suite for all the amenities and a quiet location.

We enjoyed 3 days at this hotel and loved every minute of it. The bathroom is the puff daddy of all Bathrooms. It was a huge room with 2showers, one a waterfall and the other a rainfall, the bathroom was designed with rock walls and plants. The room was also very large with a jacuzzi tub outside on our very private patio. Only downside was the water for the jacuzzi never got hot. The pool was very warm and comfortable.the grounds were beautiful and we saw many birds. The staff, especially Diego were very welcoming. The only difficulty was the sign at the entrance, it was not well located and not clear.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite which was well worth it.

We stayed at this hotel for three night and it was breathtaking. One of the most beautiful destination we have encountered. The surroundings were amazing and very secluded. The staff there was super friendly and very accommodating. The concierge were nice were not as friendly, but still, they were nice nonetheless.

Our room was beautiful, and they really captured the outdoors theme in it. Loved the waterfall shower in the bathroom.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone on their future visits.

Room Tip: Be aware that there is a mandatory $10/day charge for internet, phone, and water for room.
