Have visited several times for dinner with friends and breakfast for ourselves. Each time when calling, Andreal Quiros made our experiences extra special. She took care of our reservations and made sure we knew the perfect time to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. Costa Paraiso is a magical place where you feel relaxed and right at home with...

Really have no complaints - room was comfortable, lovely property, incredibly friendly check-in - if I were in the area again, I would return. Since my review has to be longer, a couple of things to know - steep drive into the property and only a couple of food options before 5 (I think no food options from 1-3)

It is so nice to know you do not have complaints about your stay in the Paradise. We really appreciate the comments, advices and suggestions from our guests. You are right, the restaurant is closed between 1 30 pm till 5 30pm but "El Almendro" is open at 3 00 pm where the customers could enjoy some appetizers and drinks....

This property is rustic and charming. The Monkey room was comfortable for our family of four with comfortable beds. The restaurant was very good. They had excellent smoothies made from fresh tropical fruits. The entire staff was very helpful and friendly.

We spent a full week staying in the Toucans Nest and had a great time. The views, the food, staff and management were always eager to help! We were assisted in arranging a few excursions and always made to feel special. I hope we can return someday. (and find the waterfall!) Thanks again to the whole staff. Brad and Andrea

Everything you could ask for in a Costa Rican paradise. The location, the views, and most importantly the staff are out of this world. We can't wait to come back. Very close to the surfing areas; Dominical Point, Dominicalito, and Dominical within 5 km. Definitely make sure to enjoy the onsite restaurant. Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner were 5 star gourmet.

A nice, relaxing stay in the Toucan cabin after roughing it out in Corcovado down south. Good sized pool. Food was good and drinks were good at restaurant. Nice view at bar. Bed was comfortable. About 2 minute drive to town. Lots of iguanas on property. Would stay again when in area.

I stayed a week solo at Costa Paraiso (in the "Monkey Loft.") The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The whole resort is just a few little huts (five, I think?), so it's very small and personal... And yet I didn't feel watched or hovered over; I had plenty of privacy! My room had a kitchen (mini fridge, toaster oven,...
