We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Mountain Paradise, the staff, drivers and guides are all wonderful. But you should set your expectations. It was nice that the "rooms" were either duplexes or small free standing buildings, all with private porches with rocking chairs and an outdoor jetted tub. Our room came with a separate dining table and 4 chairs. Beds...

Bungalow 202 The accommodation is in detached bungalows on a hilly formalized jungle setting. All are air conditioned and the climate is lovely. The staff are friendly, welcoming, efficient and dependable. The wildlife is stunning and the flowers and climate make for a wonderfully comfortable couple of nights to see the volcano and thermal springs, National Park etc. This was...

We arrived at this hotel as the 1st night of our tour. The hotel is nestled back off a narrow road on the hillside with views of Arenal Volcano....or supposedly it was to be. The first building you will see is a restaurant that serves Costa Rican food. Moving on, you will come to the reception desk and check-in with...

This is a reasonably priced hotel with a great view of the volcano, less than 5 mins drive from a number of hot spring resorts and 10 mins from Lake Fortuna. The rooms are fairly comfortable and well appointed for the budget and are about 100 yards walk from the main reception, passing by the pool and one of the...

DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY BAD REVIEWS OF THIS HOTEL! The views from this hotel are fantastic, with the rooms and the restaurant giving a clear view of the volcano. Our room/bungalow was spacious, clean, air-conditioned and bug free, complete with its own 'waterfall shower'. The staff were very friendly and willing to help 24/7. The layout is charming with...

This place was nice on arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff. It's a hike up to your rooms, which is not bad. Our rooms smelled musty, and they were pretty clean besides the outside tube( it is out side). The view was wonderful! They could be staffed better but the pool and food were fantastic.

We had a wonderful week's holiday in Costa Rica. However our first night, 14 Feb 2016, was at the Mountain Paradise Hotel which turned out to be a nightmare for us. In the middle of the night, around 2am, the air conditioner unit on the wall started rattling, making a lot of noise and dripping lots of water. We could...

This is a small hotel with nice large rooms with a jacuzzi just outside the doorstep. If you are looking for action, this is not the place for you. Everything closes down around 10pm and the guests are going to their rooms. The pool is heated but very very tiny. More to sit and relax in than to swim and...

The staff were extremely polite and accommodating. The casitas were close to each other and to the reception area, but they still provided golf cart service to and from, great service when it is raining! The complimentary Costa Rican breakfast was delicious, with the extra bonus of the view of the Arenal volcano as you ate. The wait staff never...
