"Recomendable solo con carro"
Hermoso lugar precioso, pacifico y silencioso. Ideal para descansar. Una vista increible de todo el valle central, clima fresco. El personal es super amable. El desayuno es bueno un relacion con su tarifa Los contras: es lejisimo de todo. Muy arriba de LA montaña. X lo tanto un taxi sale caro, y toma mucho tiempo llegar a Todo lados. El wi fi solo funciona un zonas communes.

"Vista impresionante"
Solo la vista del hotel vale cada centavo. La habitación estaba limpia, el desayuno mas que aceptable y el personal era simpático. Las camas eran algo ruidosas entonces con cualquier movimiento uno se despierta, la ubicación hace que sea complejo llegar pero por la vista vale la pena.

Wunderschöner Blick auf San Jose´war wunderbar für zwischendurch zum entspannen. Auch der kleine Pool ist sauber und warm. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt. Sehr zu empfehlen, mit dem Autobus fährt man eine halbe Stunde hoch, nur für Spanischsprechende geeignet. Taxi kostet ca.12000.- Colones od. 30.-$

The hotel was much further out of town than we expected, but the price was great, staff accommodating, and the room simple but sufficient.

TV has no cable tv and no remote control. The view is amazing and the room is clean, but the reception office was kind of desorganized and dirty. Too much light in the room, and not enough sheets for the bed.

El hotel es muy lindo y ecológico, la vista es espectacular, los precios son económicos,el lunar del lugar depronto es que esta lejos de San josé y otros sitios de interés pero depronto para ir y descansar y tomarse unos dias de relax el hotel es magnifico.

"FUYEZ !! LAMENTABLE !!"
LE PIRE HOTEL DU PAYS! La vue est belle, mais la localisation catastrophique, aucune signalisation premettant de le trouver en moins de 45 min voir 1 h de recherche dans un labyrinthe de ruelles escarpées. A vous faire renoncer si la reservation ete remboursable. Le pire hotel du pays mais pas le moins cher! Pas de restaurant, supplement pour la vue, pas de "vrai" petit déjeuner (juste café et quelque morceaux de fruits), Hotel à vendre, on sait pourquoi! THE WORST HOTEL IN THE COUNTRY! The view is beautiful, but catastrophic location, no sign to find it in less than 45 to 1hr research in a labyrinth of steep streets. To make you give up if reservation was refundable. The worst hotel in the country but not the cheapest! No restaurant, they charge for the view, not "real" breakfast ( just coffee and some fruit pieces ), hotel for sale,we know why

"PESIMA UBICACION"
El hotel no esta mal, pero es un verdadero problema llegar alli. Los GPS no lo ubican, te dejan en la mitad de la nada. Hay tres vias para llegar pero el GPS solo te da una, y no esta completa, hay que seguir por lo menos un kilometro subiendo lomas para llegar al hotel casi que adivinando. La otra via es por un barrio espantoso que da la sensacion que te van a atracar, y la mejorcita (que el barrio no es muy bonito tampoco) nadie te dice que existe. Lo cierto es que cuando superas el trauma de llegar alli, la vista casi que compensa la mala experiencia. Estuvimos dos noches, el desayuno del primer dia fue ESPECTACULAR, el segundo dia el chef no fue a trabajar y solo nos dieron cafe y tostadas. Los cuartos no tienen a/c, estan limpios, las camas son comodas, y hay baja presion de agua en la ducha.

"Excelentes trabajadores, pero el hotel no tanto"
Todos los trabajadores son muy amables y serviciales. El hotel necesita mejorar la calidad del desayuno, los ingredientes son los mas baratos y menos apetitosos que se pueden encontrar. No me gusta como tienen animales encarcelados en jaulas. El hotel es hipócrita es su política de ser "verde", por un lado quieren ahorrar agua para ser "verdes", pero por el otro lado usan vasos y platos desechables que ademas no son reciclables.

"If you want to confirm your reservation make sure to talk with Fernando"
08/01/15 Frank C
My Costa Rican girfriend called to Hotel Paradise in the morning to confirm our reservation, a lady called Beatriz Ortiz picked up the phone and she was really rude with my girlfriend, Beatriz Ortiz told her that she cannot give her any information about our reservation because the reservation was under my name, and my girlfriend told her that she has the Itinerary number and the dates of the reservation and my name, and she kept saying that she cannot give her any information (which does not make any sense, if my girlfriend has the Itinerary number). After that, my girlfriend called again in the afternoon and she spoke with the manager called Mr. Fernando, he was really nice, really good costumer service from him because he gave my girlfriend the confirmation of the reservation and he apologized Ortiz's behavior by the way she talked to her. So make sure to talk with Mr Fernando if you want to confirm your reservation or if you have any questions, do not talk with Beatriz Ortiz, she has lack of good costumer service

"Hotel Paradise the best choice"
07/08/15 Mario R Port of Spain, Trinidad
if you are a nature lover and have a choice to stay up in the mountains where Paradise Hotel located or pay more money and stay in busy San Jose Area which is just like a fish market . i bet you will not regret staying at Paradise Hotel. My group of 54 Island Hikers from Trinidad and Tobago just loved the place . here are the reasons . 1. the magnificent view of the city at 4000 feet is mind-blowing 2. a home away from home, a comfortable place for everyone to sit in the lobby and chat. 3. the staff of 10 persons are like family and you get to know all of them pretty soon. 4.Fernando the manager speaks English and can can assist you anywhere you wish to go .He organized my group of 54 persons to all the nature parks la paz waterfall, poas volcano etc and a three night stay at a resort hotel in la Fortuna, he organized a large bus and taxi for the group.. 5. food is not a problem there are 3 restaurants down the hill and for under $10.00 US food can be delivered to the hotel just ask the reception to give you the menu and they will order for you. 6. the area is safe to walk about and the villagers are friendly ask for Eleandro at the corner bar,. 7. IF YOU WANT to save money you can take a bus for .50 cents US to downtown San Jose . it runs every 20 minutes SAFE. just ask Fernando for guidelines the bus take 30-40 mintues to reach in the heart of san jose.8. Cost to stay in Paradise hotel is cheaper than busy san jose average $25.00 but good bang for the buck and worth it.9. if you like hiking there is a large cross up the mountains 6500 feet high that you can visit .hiking time 2-3 hours one-way.For 5.00 us you can get your clothes cleaned . the rooms are comfortable but not fancy. there is fridge in each room . some rooms can comfortably fit 3 persons on separate beds. Ask for the rooms with the view overlooking SanJose may cost a little more . Note pay cash and get a better rate .Average price of us dollar $500 colones. change money in the bank and not at the airport but bring small bills $20.00 and under and will be accepted every where . for $2.00 you can get a sim card at the airport. No need for air condition at Paradise since the place get chilly at night. Complimentary self served typical costa rican breakfast fruits ,eggs rice and beans. you can eat until your belly gets full plus coffee free whole day. free long distance and over seas calls. The group also stayed at a resort in La Fortuna with hot springs but the warmth and togetherness experienced at Paradise Hotel is remarkable .A true Paradise

"Beautiful and affordable"
03/03/15 Tabitha A Auburn, Maine
My husband and I stay here every time we are in San Jose. The view of San Jose simply cannot be beat, especially at night. The hotel is situated high up on a hill with fresh air and a nice cool breeze. The grounds are surrounded by a fence and there is 24 hour security, making it feel very safe. My nine year old son loves it because there is plenty of space for him to play outside, and he likes swimming in the pool overlooking the city. The rooms are very clean and many of them have breathtaking views. Al, the owner, and Fernando, who works at the front desk are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they speak good English. On my most recent trip my friend and I decided to have dinner at Valle Azul, a very nice Italian restaurant just up the street. Fernando called the restaurant, made our reservation, and arranged for someone to come pick us up, making things much simpler for us. For the value, this hotel is unbeatable. It's a wonderful place to unwind and relax.

"Good bang for your buck"
02/25/15 corford Alberta, Canada
This hotel was 30$ a night and 50$ a night for the view that overlooks San Jose from the top of the hill. It has the most amazing view because of its height in the mountain and at night you can see the whole city lit up beneath you. Breakfast is included and so is wifi and also.....you get free phone calls from your room to US and Canada!!! That's amazing. The staff is nice and found us a good reliable private driver to take us around. The only thing I wasn't too happy about is the distance it takes and the uphill climb to get from the city to your hotel. I found it annoying to go to the hotel and drop things off and then head back into the city. The view makes up for it and there is a nice restaurant or two a few minutes walking distance that overlooks the city as well and has a dance floor and strobe lights. Some local vendors were open late nearby as well. The hotel needs some upgrades and I prefer newer hotels so I wouldn't go again, but you have to see the view from up there and the staff is lovely.

"Great view, helpful staff--thanks Fernando!"
10/29/14 billsto Kokomo
The staff is very friendly and helpful--I planned a lot of day trips with their help and advice, and my son and I had a great time. The hotel is a ways up on the mountain on the southwest side of town, and not near the airport or the city center. For the money, you can't beat it--it has a great view of the valley, there is a restaurant nearby and the bus stop is just a couple blocks away. If you want an actual experience of Costa Rica, with great scenery, helpful people, bus and cab rides, and local food, then this is a great place and you'll have a good time there.

"Great spot!"
10/15/14 Alannah1690 New York City, New York
We stayed here 3 nights and it was perfect. Nice and quiet, beautiful views everywhere you looked! The area is quiet but there are a few resturaunts within walking distance, and the bus to the city is just down the road. It was cheap and easy to take to and from the city. Our room was nice and clean, breakfast was good, and coffee all day. Fernando at the front desk was very nice and helpful with any questions we had about anything. Definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a nice spot out of the city.

"Stay above the world in this hotel with incredible views!"
07/29/14 Kcasper11 Tacoma
The lights of the entire San Jose region will sparkle below you at night when you stay in this hotel up in the hills above Escazu. The place is set up nicely with the balcony rooms offering quite expansive views. Many rooms have buildings in the way of the views or they don't have views so make sure to get a balcony room if possible. Although the office lounge area offers unimpressed views so you can sit in there and enjoy the views if you want to pay less for your room and not worry about a view while you sleep! They serve free breakfast that is very basic but it's nice because there aren't nearby restaurants without having to go down the huge hill. We enjoyed our stay so much that we returned and enjoyed it again a week later and still loved this place. Two things to note- the pool is tiny and isn't a priority as it's kind of cool at this elevation, but check out the view from the pool anyway- it's just beautiful there! Also, for some reason this hotel didn't come up as Hotel Paradise on my GPS and it took us hours to find it. It comes up as a Best Western so you should keep that in mind as you search for it- we ended up visiting several other Hotel Paradises (it's Costa Rica- of course every hotel can call themselves paradise!! But the other ones we saw were definitely not as nice as this one.) It's a great place if you can find it- we just say and stared out at the view for hours! Enjoy!

"''Beware'' Don't stay here."
04/13/14 downtown100 Phoenix, Arizona
If your staying any more than one night you'd have to be crazy. If your staying for a few days following cosmetic surgery change your plans. Bad area of town, small rooms, dirty, smells terrible, didn't speak English. I had nine days scheduled for an after surgery retreat. I got in at 10 p.m. and I was so shocked I almost cried. By the next morning I was gone.Went on line and found a fantastic place for 10 dollars more a night. To say this place is bad is an understatement. I am not a negative person but have to be honest and say this is worst than a ''MOTEL SIX''
