First let me say that the setting is absolutely beautiful. You have a fantastic view of the volcano and they clearly spend a lot of time maintaining the absolutely beautiful grounds. Beyond the serenity of the place, there is not much to recommend it. First, the pool and hot springs (there are NOT 14 swimming pools. They are little interconnected...

We liked everything about this hotel except the pool area (kids didn't even ask to go in). The hot spring pools were small, not the least bit inviting, and luke-warm at best. Nice views, nice rooms, nice landscaping and good service. My husband and I had an extra day here, and might have chosen to relax at the hotel, but...

We spent a weekend here at the beginning of our Costa Rica trip this year. We had a standard room which was a cabin with a great view of the volcano.

Stayed here at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. Rooms clean, spacious, but no hooks to hang wet clothing. Resort beautifully landscaped. Hot springs a big plus. If you are looking for a jumping, vibrant time - this isn't the place to go. Very sedate - big time birder paradise. Empty bar / but friendly bartenders. Food pretty...

When we pulled into Paraiso Arenal we wondered if we were at the wrong place. It looks way more deluxe than our $130 would cover. We were amazed at how pretty and garden-like the grounds are here and the breakfast was the biggest and best of our entire trip. There's several hot spring pools which are great to sit in...
