Location and views are great. Service was friendly enough, although not outstanding. The standard rooms are adequate, although showing a little age. Security seemed good - we had no concerns while staying there despite some of the other reviews. Breakfast was good - plenty of fresh fruit and hot options at the buffet. Restaurant is also great for sitting with...

Did not stay here but our family went on the fantastic canopy zip line tour that is located on the hotel grounds. Great views and the staff was very friendly. The grounds are very nice and our kids enjoyed the swan pond.

We stopped at a tourist info spot after spending a really not so nice night at a bed and breakfast 20 miles down the road. The tourist guy running the little tourist info spot told us that we might enjoy Arenal Paraiso resort as it was quiet and not bad for the money. We did try it over the glitzy...

The grounds of this hotel are beautiful. There are several hot strings you can go to and a swim up pool bar. I received a facial and fell asleep it was so relaxing. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The buffet breakfast was delicious and served a variety of different foods every morning. The rooms are a series of bungalows...

Our group spent three days at the Arenal Paraiso. It's a beautiful setting with great views of the volcano. The grounds are lovely, the pool is sparkling clean, the hot pools are inviting. But at the same time, overall maintenance is spotty and the food could be more thoughtfully planned. On the maintenance and operations side, my room had a...

We stayed here three nights and went for one day to rio celeste. The beds were good, airconditioned room and a good shower. The breakfast was the only thing that we didn't like that much but ofcourse that's personal. The view on the vulcano was perfect it is like a painting. You have to wake up really early to see...

This hotel is made of bungalows up a long long road. Good luck if you need to dash back to your room for something. The rooms all have insects crawling around, the hair dryer fell off the wall, they kept forgetting to give us towels and my cousin's bathroom had no hot water and no one Really cared.

We stayed in this property over Christmas. It is a fine place to stop for a few days but I would not make it a destination property. The cottages are small for a family and the property is pretty but not a place to spend more than a couple of days. The hot springs were pretty but over crowded, so...

I stayed here in a lodge with 2 friends. Our room was very spacious. Its good to have your own porch outside the room to dump shoes etc. The layout of the cabins were good and it felt a bit like Center Parcs. We had a lovely view from our room of the volcano (when it wasn't cloudy). Apart from...

It was great to have several thermal water pools on-site. The breakfast was great. The room and bathroom were clean. Security was good. There was a safe in the cabin. Great place to get in touch with nature and relax! We could not see the volcano because it was raining. We used the spa services and they were OK.
