We stayed here for seven days with friend and overall were very satisfied with the level of service and the location. The hotel is in a very pretty location overlooking a rocky shoreline with a great view of the ocean and sunsets. Unfortunately this is not true of the rooms, which though very comfortable do to not afford the same...

Thanks very much for your feedback, and your positive and constructive comments. In response to some of the minor issues you raise I can provide the following explanations. We are reviewing our website to ensure it is clear that views from some rooms are of the gardens rather than the sea. The hotel is sourced by a spring as part...

We stayed in mid Feb 2013 and loved it. It is very nice, but not over the top. The property was super well kept. The managers were top notch, friendly, helpful, welcoming and very open. The meals were delicious. They made a Valentine's dinner of ahi tuna and the dining area with a view over the pool to the ocean...

We visited Costa Paraiso back in September 2012 for 2 nights. We had a beautiful drive from San Jose airport; however, by the time we arrived it was pouring rain.

Thank you, was good that you enjoyed the view and the rocks where the waves were crashing, it is a view that you don’t get tired of. The rainy season is powerful and occasionally takes the sand out to sea, so that more rocks are exposed. In the summer time the sand comes back, right now the sand is back...

Don't let the long, cliff like driveway scare you off. After driving around and checking out 6 or 7 different hotels that are close to the water, Casa Paraiso was the clear winner for us. It's just beautiful and close to everything we planned to do (beach, surfing, riding horses up to Nauyaca falls, etc.). Sandra was incredibly helpful and...

We just returned from a 3-day stay at Costa Paraiso. It was truly a wondeful find. The staff was so friendly, the property truly an idyllic location on the coast, and so many attractions nearby.

Thanks for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the room and view, and hotel relaxation areas. Regarding the wedding party we believed that this would have finished by 9pm, as we only had an arrangement for dinner with the party.

“When we first arrived at our room, it had not been cleaned. We had to wait for them to remove a bed and clean up after the others "mess". It was a bit e harassing and uncomfortable to walk into. They got things cleaned up, though you could tell it was not "housekeeping" standards. We made the most of our time and got to open the bar. What a beautiful setting! Later, they informed that our room was indeed ready! The view was breathtaking,the sound of waves incredible, the food remarkable. ”
