Hotel Mountain Paradise
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2010

Spent four nights at Mtn. Paradise with our two teens and nine year old. The hotel is very nice and located in a perfect spot. The view of the volcano is breathtaking and the availability of adventure tours is great. Mtn. Paradise sits in a perfect spot to do the zip line, rafting, canyoning, etc tours (all of which are a ton of fun). The food at the restaurant is ok, but a quick ride into Fortuna provides multiple opportunities for some wonderful meals (we loved The Concha de Laurel restaurant.) We all had a wonderful stay and would definitely go back.

I am a teacher and during spring break we decided to go to Costa Rica for a well deserved break. We found the resort Mountain Valley on the internet. Not really knowing anyone who has been to the resort we took the chance and booked wit h Mountain Valley
What a wonderful experience we had. The staff could not have done anything else to make our stay any more pleasureable. Ivan, the food and beverage manger went out of his way to make our stay much better than we could have ever asked for. Roy (wetbar) made our visit to the wetbar everyday something to look forward to. We made sure we had time everyday to visit the wet bar, beause of him. Erian (not positive of the spelling) made the best omelets ever. She also made a point to come and say hello to us every morning in the restaurant. Pelon (maintance) was always gracious when he was out and about, and if we needed anything he was there in minutes. Magaly (front desk) went out of her way to make calls for us when we were haveing a problem with one of our excursions. I would recommend this resort to anyone and I will absolutely go back. I am already ready to book another trip.

My fiance and I just returned from our first trip to Costa Rica, and we both agree that the staff at Mountain Paradise made it a very memorable one! The hotel was magnificent with its lush landscape, amazing view of the volanco and quite/private casitas. Ivan the manager of food and beverage and Roy the bartender were exceptional! We were fortunate enough to spend time with the owners who were very warm and welcoming. We could not have picked a better hotel in La Fortuna! Thank you.

I totally recommend this hotel. The room was spacious, the bathroom was almost as big as the room. The shower was unbelievable! The view was spectacular although it is on the side of the volcano that the lava doesn't flow down. The grounds were well maintained. The hotel staff was very nice. There were tons of humingbirds.

The pool bar was great. And Diego, the bartender, was very friendly.

Breakfast was included. It was not the best buffet but it was ok.

Although difficult to find if you are driving, it was well worth the trip to this hotel. The grounds are spectacular, the rooms are well appointed and the staff is friendly. This hotel is close to both La Fortuna, Tabacon, the hanging bridges and the volcano.

Although we thought a hoax had been perpetrated on us the 1st two days we were there, the morning we left we discovered that indeed, a smoking volcano was present in the vacinity. It had been very overcast/drizzly during our 1st two days to actually observe this. But on the day we left the sun was out, flowers in bloom, and all was right with the world. And the volcano was much closer/larger than we had imagined. Actually we had no complaints before the sun came out. The food was great, and the bartender extremely attentive {We called him Diablo. His name was Diego}. Imported wine was quite expensive as it was wherever we were in Costa Rica. The rooms were great, as was the service- We would return to this place w/o a second thought.
