Mountain Paradise Hotel was the best hotel of our entire Costa Rica trip. We only spend 3 nights there and could have easily spend another 3. Everything said by other travelers is true. The grounds are immaculate! The exotic trees, the flowers, singing hummingbirds are everywhere. The pool with volcano view is heated and is very romantic. Perfect after a...

This hotel has beautiful grounds and the rooms are very nice, large and well furnished. It's also in a great location far enough outside of La Fortuna to feel away from it all, but only a short drive to the town and the attractions around (and it has a shuttle service into the town if you don't have your own...

Great location, huge rooms, and jacuzzi's in every room outside on the patio. Beautiful and great value for the price. Go on the waterfall rappelling tower with Desafio while you are here, it is awesome!

This place was paradise. All rooms are little private villas with private terraces with outdoor jacuzzi tub(small). Shower is awesome..made to look like an outdoor waterfall. Heated pool with swim up bar and music. Breakfast was huge buffet...no need for lunch after this. Free shuttle only runs certain times but taxis are very cheap. Loved this place...manuel was a great...

As soon as we arrived we were greeted with cool towels and fruit punch. The room was beautiful with a few minor kinks. We couldn't seem to work the A/C. It worked, but wouldn't turn down or off. We had a private jacuzzi but there wasn't any warm water to fill it (we weren't sure whether we had to turn...

We have beeen to Lafortuna twice once in 2009 and again in April 2011. We stayed at the Hotel Mountain Paradise both times. The view of the volcano, the volcano heated pool with swim up bar and the individual villas were amazing. We also ate at the restaurant the last night and it was 5 star at 2 star prices!!...

My husband and I stayed in 4 hotels in this area, and Mountain Paradise was easily the best. Our room was beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking, the breakfast (really more of a lunch) was the best we had during our trip, the staff was extremely welcoming and helpful, and the free shuttle into La Fortuna is a great perk. If...

First of all the grounds on this resort are beautiful! The flowers outside the rooms attract lots of hummingbirds. The pool also is very nice and warm- thanks to the hot springs- and the view is gorgeous. As for the service it is okay. The staff at the restaurant ignored us for about 10 minutes when we first arrived- they...

Hotel Mountain Paradise is a great little hidden secret in the tropical paradise area of Mt. Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. The property itself is fantastic! All of the rooms (which are actually freestanding) have unique features, such as the indoor waterfall showers, are large and clean, and very private. I was traveling with my adult daughter, and our unit...
