  • This is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are newly renovated, the grounds are beautiful and staff was very friendly and helpful. The hot springs are very comfortable with a lot of temperatures to choose from! I highly recommend anyone looking to spend a few days in the area try this place out! If I had only one complaint, it would be the buffet options, they are very limited and serve the same meal daily. But there are plenty of other great food locations near by.
  • For the price I was expecting only a 2 or 3 star, but pleasantly surprised! We were extremely pleased with the helpfulness of the hotel staff, fit and finish of the rooms and general cleanliness of the resort. Very quiet location making you feel like you're in a secluded tropical paradise while still having accessibility to plenty of other offsite attractions nearby. Only complaint I had was the mattress on the bed was too firm. Definitely recommend Paradise Hot Springs Resort for anyone visiting Costa Rica.
  • quiet and private. Come when it opens and its as if you own the place until about 4 PM. Then it gets slightly more busy. Very clean and staff is nice. Even when other people are here they respect your space. No kids!!
  • Great service, friend staff, and DELICIOUS drinks here! The hot springs here has a bar in one of the thermal pools. You can also order food at the bar and they bring it to you. If you want a towel you need to make a deposit, use the towel and bring it back. Then you get your money back. Overall I HIGHLY recommend this place. It's cheaper then the other hot springs as well!
  • Nice place to relax your from hiking tired body and enjoy the beautifully made pools and amazing view to Arenal volcano. If you come early, you can avoid crowds and watch colibris fly around. Evening dinner looked better than lunch though.. At evening you had an open buffet and live music. Morning hours are less crowded, but the lunch is just ok.. Definitely take something to read and enough sunscreen.
