Great Hot Springs. Staff was very welcoming and helpful.

Beautiful room and grounds. Very nice breakfast. Room should have phone and full length mirror and provide robes for hot springs.

We lived our stay. Hot springs were great, room was spacious, breakfast was delicious and staff was very helpful.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to town and the hot spring pools are a great way to end the day after hiking, ziplining and all the outdoor adventures Arenal has to offer.

Did no go to the beach hopefully next time. I will definetly love to experience the hotel some other time

Our stay at Paradise was truly wonderful. The staff were so kind and helpful. Jackie and David were incredibly welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hot spring pools were amazing. There are 9 pools and they have a nice variety of sizes and temperatures. I would highly recommend this small, quaint, hidden gem.

The accommodations were nice with large beds and a nice bathroom. The property is filled with beautiful plants among the hot springs. The hot springs are open to the public for a fee after 11 a.m. and it can be busy until around 6 p.m. Hotel guests can use the springs pools in the morning from 9-11 a.m. The free breakfast was delicious with local dishes and fresh fruit.

We had originally wanted to stay at Tabacon but wound up at Paradise Springs instead - we were not disappointed. Rooms were great (though they desperately need hooks to hang wet bathing suits, towels, etc.). Staff was super nice and accommodating and the hot spring pools were exactly what we were looking for. We very much appreciated that Paradise Springs is not as crazy crowded as Tabacon so there is room at the pools, swim up bar, etc. There were 8 in our party including 4 kids and we all very much enjoyed our stay.
