“excellent hotel”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We join many other reviewers opinion, that this hotel is marvelous. The waterfall shower (in additions the regular one), the outside jacuzzi facing the moutain, the privacy of each room, the flowers & birds all over the place...
It'a a pity the the Arenal volcano stopped it's activity last year, so one dosen't see anymore red lights at nightime... If it resumes it's action, we certainly would like to visit that hotel again.

Wonderful place totally amazing. When we arrived at night we were taken to our room via golf buggy after having a cooling drink in reception. Our room was fabulous the first thing that hit us was the view of the bathroom, it had a power shower and a waterfall shower the bedroom was lovely also with a hot tub on the porch and the view .... well just look at the photo how can you beat that a view of Arenal Volcano! The dining room overlooked this view also we only had one evening meal and a breakfast there as we were touring however the food we had was lovely and sitting under the canopy surrounded by exotic flowers was beautiful couldn't fault it. I just wished we could have stayed another day.

After driving 4 hours from San Jose to get here we were amazed. We were greeted with cold towels and a fresh fruit drink!!! The grounds were absolutely beautiful and we felt more than safe since it is in a gated area. We loved the pool bar and our bartender Johnny!! Everyone was more than friendly. We also meet a nice girl who checked us in..we spent lots of time talking to her about where she was from and what languages she knew. Everyone was so nice.

The food at the restaurant for dinner was okay. Nothing spectacular but nothing bad either. Breakfast was great though with lots of different options!! They had this mango orange juice which was delicious!!

Our room was more than I could have ever hoped for! The bathrooms are out of this world with waterfall showers! The bathroom was also huge. The beds were comfortable and having AC was wonderful! The patio with the jacuzzi was also a huge plus! Everything about this place was wonderful!! I can't wait to go back!!

Mountain Paradise is absolutely worth it! Comparing the views and amazing grounds to the cost...very reasonably priced. Excellent breakfast buffet and restaurant with added traditional Costa Rica food. Beautiful pool with very friendly, fun and helpful staff who will help you arrange your activities.

The rooms are beautiful with unique rocking chairs and personal jacuzzi or pool on your porch with a direct view of Arenal volcano, you cannot beat this view. Comfortable beds, beautiful furniture in the rooms and a duel shower, one regular stand up brick shower and one waterfall shower. The junior suite was 100% worth the price.

The massage was great, located in a very unique, open building on the property with perfect views and the sounds of animals/birds in the background. Hotel will arrange your transportation to the Tabacon Hot Springs (highly recommend in conjunction with volcano hike and Tabacon Dinner). They also have free shuttles throughout the day to downtown La Fortuna (Eat at La Choza de Laurel).

Room Tip: Junior Suite is worth the price

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Costa Rica trip and we loved it! The perfect place to see and explore the area from. The rooms are amazing. So private and a wonderful size. The waterfall feature shower and the large bathroom make it a bathroom to remember. We also had a plunge pool and a hot tub with our room and it was all fabulous! The hot tub had the Arenal Volcano in our direct sightline. The wildlife around the property and the plants and flowers were beautiful I saw humming birds all around and loved sitting on the porch watching the birds fluttering by. Another great factor is the fabulous staff they were all so happy to help and did not feel suffocating or to in your face which was just right. We went on the horse riding tour organised by the hotel and we had a wonderful guide called Jack who took is to the waterfall. It was definately a great trip to go on if you are planning to stay here. All in all this hotel was a hit with us and we would stay again.
