This hotel was fantastic. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were fun. Yes, they were a bit cheezy but I loved them. We had 2 showers in our all stone bathroom, 1 waterfall shower and 1 multiple jet shower. It was great! The pools and the pool bar are very fun. We spent our first night sitting in the...

Of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica, this was by far our least favorite. And in all my travels I can not recall a time when I paid more for less hospitality. Yes, as documented in other reviews, the rooms are cheesy/awkward/cheap and that the jacuzzi is meant only for one (in our case actually zero, since the...

Arenal was our first stop in our 2 week long honeymoon in Costa Rica and what a stunning introduction to the country it was. It took us close to 3.5 hours to get there from San Jose, we learnt to add an hour or two to the estimated travel time and this helped us over the rest of our trip....

the views to the volcano are incredible, but that is more or less all this hotel offers. Sign to rooms are very confusing and get ready to get lost rooms are spacious but decorated with really bad taste, trying to bring the jungle into your room making it very dirty and with insects staff is unfriendly

My now husband and I had visited Arenal previously in 2008 but stayed at a different hotel. While wedding planning we knew Arenal was the place to have our destination wedding. With high recommendations from my wedding planner I decided to book my wedding here. We just had our wedding last night and I couldn't wait to write a review...

Although it's a winding 2 hour drive from San Jose, it's worth the trip to stay here. Absolutely gorgeous view of the nearby volcano, very lush and lovely to experience the rainforests and all the beautiful nature that surrounded the hotel. All the staff was very welcoming and friendly, was helpful in our planning of daily excursions of nearby zip-lining...

We loved our "junior suite" room here -- 20 foot ceilings, huge bathrooms with a regular shower and a separate waterfall shower with climbing plants and rocks, and a separate semi-closed toilet area. The outdoor patio was closed in by vegetation with gorgeous flowers that were visited every few minutes by hummingbirds. The jacuzzi on the patio was a nice...

We loved spending three nights with Hotel Mountain Paradise. We received an upgrade to one of the premium suites as soon as we arrived. The pool, hammocks, swim up to bar with ESPN playing, and in room grottos are truly an amazing combination. I guarentee you will love your bathroom there. When the weather allows, the viewed of e volcano...

A beautiful location, wonderful accommodations, great food and a staff that never failed to do whatever it took to make each guest happy. 2 grandparents, 2 parents, 2 young children: a tough-to-please crowd but Mountain Paradise's staff managed perfectly.

We stayed at Hotel Mountain Paradise winter of 2010. (Just getting around to writing the review). Nice size room, huge bathroom. Only one problem - no hot water. We happened to stay in Costa Rica during one of the coldest winters in years and all we wanted was a hot shower after the long days...oh well. The room had a...
