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...

We stayed two nights at the Hotel Mountain Paradise in November. Service / room / views / restaraunt / property were all the best we experianced in two weeks in Costa Rica. Make sure you have a drink at the heated pool bar and check out the La Fortuna Waterfall!!

Great place to stay in La Fortuna/Arenal area! Staff was great, and very accommodating. The (included) breakfast each morning was more than the typical (American Style) Continental Breakfast, which included omelets and hot buffet items. We also booked a tour (Hiking/Spa/Dinner) through the hotel, as it seemed to be a better value than trying to do these on our own....

This hotel has the most amazing views, best staff that cater to every need. They did an incredible job accomidating our party! Everything was fantastic. The only thing I had an issue with and it's a personal prefance is the beds were a little too firm for my taste. My wife was in heaven because she likes a firm bed....

After spending three days in Arenal, we found our way to Monteverde where we stayed at the Mountain Paradise hotel. What a fabulous experience. We arrived in a cloud, but once that cloud cleared we were amazed at the beauty and upkeep of the grounds of the hotel. The history of the place is a big plus and the artwork...

My wife and I visited for 3 days in November and were most impressed by the beautiful and well maintained flowering vegetation. We ate breakfast there each morning - adequate but not impressive. We had a rental car so ate all other meals in La Fortuna, about 10-15 minutes down the road. Particularly like Las Brasitas and Choza de Laurel,...
