We stayed in a premium room at the Mountain Paradise for three nights in December. The room was very spacious and comfortable and the terrace with rocking chairs & jacuzzi with view of gardens with birds was very relaxing. The grounds are very well laid out and there is plenty of space between the rooms. We particularly enjoyed the hot...

We stayed in this hotel in January 2012. The first night here they told us that the room we reserved MONTHS ago was not available and we would be forced to stay in the smallest room they had for the first night. We said OK, as they promised us the best room they had the remainder of our trip. They...

Our first impression on entering the grounds was Wow! The reception has a beautiful view towards the Arenal volcano. Our room was a fair walk away, but had the same view. Our overall experience was very positive here, with just a few niggles (given the price, I feel these should be pointed out). We had a double with the biggest...

This hotel was fantastic. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were fun. Yes, they were a bit cheezy but I loved them. We had 2 showers in our all stone bathroom, 1 waterfall shower and 1 multiple jet shower. It was great! The pools and the pool bar are very fun. We spent our first night sitting in the...

Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, this was by far our least favorite. And in all my travels I can not recall a time when I paid more for less hospitality. Yes, as documented in other reviews, the rooms are cheesy/awkward/cheap and that the jacuzzi is meant only for one (in our case actually zero, since the...

Arenal was our first stop in our 2 week long honeymoon in Costa Rica and what a stunning introduction to the country it was. It took us close to 3.5 hours to get there from San Jose, we learnt to add an hour or two to the estimated travel time and this helped us over the rest of our trip....

the views to the volcano are incredible, but that is more or less all this hotel offers. Sign to rooms are very confusing and get ready to get lost rooms are spacious but decorated with really bad taste, trying to bring the jungle into your room making it very dirty and with insects staff is unfriendly

My now husband and I had visited Arenal previously in 2008 but stayed at a different hotel. While wedding planning we knew Arenal was the place to have our destination wedding. With high recommendations from my wedding planner I decided to book my wedding here. We just had our wedding last night and I couldn't wait to write a review...

Although it's a winding 2 hour drive from San Jose, it's worth the trip to stay here. Absolutely gorgeous view of the nearby volcano, very lush and lovely to experience the rainforests and all the beautiful nature that surrounded the hotel. All the staff was very welcoming and friendly, was helpful in our planning of daily excursions of nearby zip-lining...

We loved our "junior suite" room here -- 20 foot ceilings, huge bathrooms with a regular shower and a separate waterfall shower with climbing plants and rocks, and a separate semi-closed toilet area. The outdoor patio was closed in by vegetation with gorgeous flowers that were visited every few minutes by hummingbirds. The jacuzzi on the patio was a nice...
