This charming hotel is located about halfway between La Fortuna and Tabacon Hot Springs. If you have a car it is very convenient for exploring the Arenal area. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are in bungalows with a central building for dinning and the front desk all in a Costa Rican style. While the star level...

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Mountain Paradise Hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious with a the view of the Arenel Volcano that was impressive.

We had a great time at this wonderful, incredible breathtaking resort. Words can't explain the beauty of this country and the natural setting of this hotel as it flows eloquently with its natural setting. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious, up-to-date and mind-blowing. Each chateau had something different to offer, the natural landscaping was great for morning, afternoon and evening...

We stayed at Mountain Paradise 9/20-9/23 for the first half of our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time. The entire hotel staff was always friendly and helpful and always seemed busy cleaning something! The hotel grounds themselves were impeccible. All of the plants were gorgeous. Nothing looked dirty. It had an AMAZING view of the Arenal Volcano. I...

We had a great time here. There were a few kinks but the staff fixed them right away. The rooms were super nice (beds are hard so be prepared) and we really liked the pool and the jacuzzi tub on our patio. The food was okay but La Fortuna is a cute little town with lots of other options. There...

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at this hotel. The pool and swim up bar, along with our huge room and outdoor jacuzzi tub, were the highlights of this hotel. The staff are young and seem to be getting trained in the service industry, especially in the restaurant. Overall they were great, but for example, when I...

This place is really beautiful. The rooms are exquisite. There is an option of shower that looks like a cascade. Every room has a terrace with a view to Arenal Vulcano. And the hot pool has a perfect view of it. Be aware though that, depending on the room you get, it can be far very from the reception, so...

We had 3 folks who stayed at the Mountain Paradise on 9/4/11, the location of the hotel is great, where you can see the Volcano easily. What we were taken aback by was the cold-water jacuzzi in our room, the lack of a clean bathroom, and the poor service at the front desk. Consistently we were told that there would...

This hotel offers the complete package for couples and families - it's in a wonderful location with a breathtaking view of the volcano. The hotel offers excellent amenities, including a heated pool and spacious lobby and on-site restaurant. The hotel staff are genuinely friendly, caring and helpful. After the long jeep-boat-jeep commute from Monteverde, the hotel made us feel that...

The hotel grounds and the room were very clean and well kept. The staff was very helpful and gave great advice when it came to restaurants and activities. We had a suite with our own hot tub, waterfall shower, etc. and for the price you cant beat this. The only thing I would recommend is renting your own car and...
