La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica7 contributions3 helpful votes
My wife and I spend a lot of time in La Fortuna and have visited many of the local hot springs resorts, but I must say Paradise Hot Springs is my favorite for a few reasons. Everything is beautiful from the view of Arenal to the landscape, the thermal pools and hotel are all amazing! I was also very impressed with our hotel room and the restaurant, which offers a great variety of local cuisine and some great vegan dishes as well. The service was second to none, I highly recommend a visit to Paradise Hot Springs if you are coming to La Fortuna!

My husband and I stayed at Paradise Hot Springs for 2 days during Christmas and it was a wonderful experience Alena and Jackie were extremely helpful, they helped us throughout our stay via text. They helped with coordination of excursions, restaurants and transportation. The property is beautiful, relaxing and the rooms are spacious and very clean.

Friendly Management, great rooms and beautiful hot springs! Several pools with chairs, tables, and loungers; with a sit in bar at the lower level. Restaurant is good, and breakfast buffet is included. You may also order a la carte. Great view of Arenal Volcano from upper end of property (if it’s not cloudy). Parking is somewhat removed from the rooms, and stairs to both upper and lower units, so, not for the handicapped. Hot springs are crowded from afternoon to early evening due to buses dropping people off.

I was blown away with our room. Rooftop deck, direct view of Arenal, close to everything. Restaurant was great, food was delicious, and the Hot Springs were a great place to relax after a hike. The live music with dinner was a great touch and we had an incredible time. It was great fun start to finish. I can't wait to go back!

From the moment we arrived to check in we felt like we were truly in paradise. Friendly, helpful staff greet you and give you a personal tour of the property, setting your days there on the right path. The entire grounds are so well maintained and gorgeous, it is like something out of a dream how beautiful the gardens are. Every morning their staff power wash all of the hot springs and areas around them, keeping the place spotless. The hot springs were fantastic, and I was pleasantly surprised that they had a few which were kept nice and hot around 104F (don't worry, they have cooler options too!). Comfy beds, clean rooms with a huge shower and great AC. We got really lucky and had clear skies (and an amazing view of Arenal). It is located VERY close to the volcano, so if clear, you will love the view! Overall have only positives to say about this place, and definitely recommend it!!
