Outstanding5.0 / 5
Great hotel especially for the price
First off, La Fortuna was my favorite place we went in Costa Rica. The Arenal Paraiso Hotel has incredible value for money. We stayed in a standard room for $90 per night that had two double beds and a basic bathroom, but the most incredible view of the volcano from our patio that was equipped with two rocking chairs. The on site hot springs and pool was great too and the grounds were absolutely stunning with wildlife coming right up to the hot springs. (We even saw a sloth.) I am sure there are more luxurious hotels in La Fortuna, but if you are looking for a clean, comfortable, affordable, and gorgeous hotel, this is the one for you. The front desk will call you a cab if you don't have a car and they arranged us the friendliest cab driver who drove us around our whole time in La Fortuna. The only negative part about our stay was that the restaurant was a little too pricey for the food you got. The food wasn't terrible, but not worth $20-$30 per entree either. It is best to eat at a restaurant off the hotel property if you are on a stricter budget. With that being said, we enjoyed their mixed drinks at the swim-up bar and loved the continental breakfast in the morning.

Caveat Emptor
Cottage was very nice with two queen beds but experienced problems with A/C dripping on one of the beds and getting towels that were missing. Front desk was slow in responding to send staff to fix problems. Beautiful view of Arenal volcano but too close to road so lots of car & truck noise. Great hot pools for relaxing and pool bar. Restaurant breakfast buffet was good but would not recommend for dinner.

Great views, great setting and thermal pools!
The hotel grounds are lovely, and the Arenal volcano towered directly behind our cabana! Gorgeous views. While the pools themselves are man made, but they are very attractive and set in lush gardens, many of which have waterfalls and little alcoves to explore. The water is pumped into the pools from the thermal springs, and the various thermal pools are interconnected allowing varying water temperatures as they progress (the lower down you go, the cooler they get). Also, the staff there were fantastic. Also, the swim up bar provides outstanding views of the volcano with a drink in hand! Neat place overall, and despite less than perfect rooms (we did get lower end units), it was an amazing value and very relaxing. I would go back.

Yes, but ...
Mixed feelings. Great location, nice room, hot springs. They should pay attention to the details. Staff in the spa did not speak english. Whole procedure in the spa was not too comfortable (take shower, change clothes etc.). Opening hours in the sauna (only till 8 PM). Staff was not so friendly (no greetings, no smiles, except the waiter). Food in the restaurant was not cheap, but food was not as good as one would expect. Room for improvement.
