My friends and I stayed at Monkey Loft for 3 days while we were scuba diving. No wonder this place is highly rated. The rooms are very clean, and included a functional A/C and hot running water as described. There were two things that made the stay thoroughly enjoyable: 1) Scenery - Costa Paraiso is located right next to the...

The hotel grounds are beautiful, the restaurant is excellent, the rooms are clean and have character, and the staff is uber friendly. Combine that with a nice pool, 4 swinging hammocks, tons of wildlife, and a beautiful quiet beach... it's an amazing place. I'd highly recommend anyone to stay here. If you've unfortunately already booked somewhere else, at least do...

I've delayed a couple weeks in writing our review of our stay, and I've felt guilty every day about that. Everyone and everything about our stay at Costa Paraiso was wonderful. The staff is friendly, inviting, and helpful at every turn. We stayed in the Monkey Loft room and then moved to the Toucan Nest. Both rooms were great and...

We had 4 nights at Costa Paraiso and our stay was magnificent. Everything from the rooms, the beach front setting, the pool and the staff were fantastic. The restaurant (PorQueNo?) was an absolute highlight, Shelby the chef does an amazing job of incorporating a local feel into his menu. We were genuinely sad to leave!!!
