Our family and friends (group of 8) stayed here for a week, and everyone loved it. Sandra and Jo were incredible from the moment we arrived to the minute we left - helping us get acquainted with the area, finding running and walking trails, tours, and just being available! They also suggested other restaurants when we asked for advice, but...

It was wonderful to have your family here during the holidays Taryn...such amazing people that we were able to get to know over your trip. Very easy to have around and created such a great ambiance in the hotel - the Christmas carolling on Christmas Eve was very cool! You guys are the perfect guests! Thanks for the kind words....

Our family of 4 spent 7 nights - both in the Dolphin room and the Monkey Loft. The small hotel only has 5 rooms so it feels like you are staying in someone's home. The views of the ocean are like no other - crashing waves against the rocks, that you can hear from your room. Although you cannot see...

We overnighted here on our way to an excursion between Dominical and San Isidro. We arrived round dinner and were informed that the restaurant was full and could not be served dinner. After our drive from San Jose, we were looking forward to a dinner at the hotel. Bummer! We never imagined needing a reservation. However, Jo, the property manager,...

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.

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!!!
