This is our second time at this beautiful little resort, this time we were fortunate to stay 3 nights. There are maybe 5 cabinas to rent on the property, each equipped for you to prepare your own food. We prepared our own breakfast and lunch and one dinner as the onsite restaurant is closed on Mondays. Make sure to reserve...

My family just returned from staying at the Dolphin Lodge at the Costa Paraiso for 6 nights. We absolutely loved everything about the place. Our room was great. Good air conditioning, very comfortable beds, coffee maker, plenty of dishes and utensils and plenty of water. We used the wifi sparingly to check email and connect with family at home and...

I almost don’t want to write this review because a part of me, a large part of me, wants to keep this little slice of paradise a secret. I feel compelled to start with a disclaimer, so here it is; If your idea of a relaxing vacation is to sit beside the resort pool that looks like just another resort...

Costa Paraiso is a small hotel, only ~6-8 rooms I think, but really well appointed. The room we stayed in (Dolphin Lodge) was very well appointed, with a view of the water and the sunset from our room. The rooms were very clean, with plenty of space for a more than a day-or-two stay. While we stayed only one night...

We have just returned to San Jose from a 2-night stay at Costa Paraiso. My husband and I stayed in Toucan, and our son and two friends stayed in Coconut. We loved it - the location is stunning! For me, watching the waves crashing over the rocks, ever changing with the tide, beats looking at sand. The sunsets from the...

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you appreciated the Toucan Nest casita. In fact we try to provide the best quality to our customers. Your satisfaction is very important for us.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Toucan Nest for two nights and we both thought it was a cute little romantic cottage.

Beautiful room (Tucan) in a beautiful, private location.
