This place is simply amazing, since when you arrive and be greeted with a delicious fruit punch. The staff super friendly and always more than willing for helping. Freddy at the front desk helped us a lot organizing out excursions and set up our adventures. The rooms are well mantained and the waterfall shower is beautiful as much as the...

We spent 3 nights at this hotel and loved every minute of it! We rented our own car which is very do-able, I just recommend paying extra for the GPS to make it easier to get around. Upon our arrival in the lobby, we were greeted with fresh fruit juices. Not sure what was in them but they were delicious!...

This was my favorite hotel but it''s more like "casitas" spread all over. Mine was No. 310 near the back of the property. Very large room with private patios, rocking chairs that provide full view of the Arenal volcano, AC, TV and has two unique shower choices, one with a rain shower and next to it a beautiful hand painted...

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.
