Arenal Paraiso Hotel Resort & Spa
Reviewed 22 December 2017 via mobile

During our traveling vacation in Costa Rica I wanted to make it a point to visit the mountainous location of Arenal. If you want to experience the diversity of Costa Rica getting out of the beach towns and the Central Valley and heading for the countries interior will fulfill your expectations. My decision to stay at Arenal Paraiso Resort was two fold. I’d stayed here before and knew how kid friendly the Resort is and I wanted to pick a Resort that has a good selection of Hot Springs pools. Arenal Paraiso fits the bill. The pools snake up the side of the hill and the farther up you go the more secluded and intimate they become. The rooms, depending on where you stay, can be average/rustic to above average/contemporary. I would recommend your selection be a little higher up the hill w better views of the volcano than the rooms down by the road. The breakfast (included) is adequate with a large selection of local fare as well as your standard waffles, eggs, bacon, toast and a great fruit selection.
All in all you can pick one of the more posh resort settings in the area and you will pay dearly. For the best bang for your buck you can’t do better than Arenal Paraiso Hotel & Resort.

I got a room with 3 single beds, which for me alone was not so cozy, but the room was nice, good tv, good matress so manage to get a nice rest. The best are the hot pools with warm water, where you can get free towels. The pool bar is not confortable and you dont feel like having a late drink there. For breakfast there was a nice assortment of products. Lunch and Dinner at the restaurant is very expensive in relation to quality, not suprised by the food. Location is a bit far from La Fortuna, 7km Taxis charge around 12 dollars and there is not much other option, area not good for walking. The people at the desk where friendly and booked the tours with no problem.

I have previously been to 5 star luxury hotels as well as average hotels.
To be fair,Arenal Paraiso is very good hotel and just a few steps away from being excellent.
The location is excellent. Just a few minutes driving from La Fortuna town and all the restaurants.
The resort's grounds are gorgeous, filled with colorful flowers,tropical trees and beautiful Costa Rican birds.
The hot springs were very satisfying as well.
Initially we had plans of spending a day at a park especially for hot spring. But the ones available at the hotel were very satisfying for us since we were looking for some relaxation.
If you're looking for slides and fun,you should consider the parks.
The rooms are spacious. You have two options. The standard rooms and the private Bangalos.
There is a coffee machine in the room and each day, the housekeeper puts a small bag of coffee/cream/sugar for the guests - something which we really appreciated!
The beds are comfortable but aren't the best.
The rooms and amenities could use some improvement. But the breathtaking view from the room and it's surroundings compensate for other things.
Be careful for insects though.
The staff,wether at the hotel restaurant or at the reception are SUPER nice and kind. Always ready to help.
Breakfast for me was very basic,yet satisfying for others. That's a personal opinion.
I would definitely visit again!
Highly recommended.

The view of the volcano from each room is amazing. The room are more like your own little cabin with and glassed in porch with rocking chairs. It is a bit of a hill so walking is up and down. Loved the hot springs on site and the pool was nice with swim up bar, Room were clean and big, only down fall was lack of hot water or how long it took to get hot water. Food was very good. Nice gift shop on site too.

Room Tip: Air conditioning worked great and frig in the room
