Upon arriving at Mountain Paradise, my new wife and I were greeted with warm towels which were nice after a long car ride. After checking in we were taken to our room. It had a spectacular view of the Volcano, spacious bathroom, nice little patio with a jacuzzi and every single member of the staff had a beaming smile. The pool is nice with a swim-up bar and usually a friendly bartender offering his knowledge of the surrounding area. There are infinite activities to do every day as any traveler to the Arenal area probably already knows. The hotel already has a convenient list of these activities for you to chose from but they are also very helpful in making other arrangements as well.
Breakfast and dinner are both awesome at the restaurant. The complimentary breakfast includes the best fresh fruit and juice along with a traditional rice and beans, eggs, plantains, etc. The manager, Ivan, went out of his way to remember our names, make us feel at home and educate us about the best things to do. We had already reserved a particular canopy tour and upon hearing this, he wisely directed us to a different one which was incredible. He also offered a delicious dinner menu with different specials every night including an incredible tuna dish that was as fresh as it gets. The hotel also drove us up to the side of the volcano so that we could see some lava flowing down at night. The grounds are well kept with beautiful flowering tropical plants everywhere. The staff is amazing and accommodating. In this area you don't spend much time at your hotel, but when you do, Mountain Paradise makes the experience one you will not soon forget. Thanks again, Ivan.
