We stayed four nights at this hotel. When we arrived, we were greeted with welcome cocktails and shown to our room. It was a typical hotel room with two queen size beds, very clean. The room has a refrigerator and coffee maker, but they never provided coffee for the maker. All the rooms at this hotel have a fiew of... More

we stayed there for 3 nights. The staff is friendly and the room is nice. There are few restaurants just a short walk from the hotel. I would avoid staying in a room that is closer to the street since you could hear the music from the night club just a building away, the music lasted til early in the... More

At first appearance, this hotel seemed like it might be just an older, mediocre kind of hotel. It turned out to be much nicer than that. Very clean with good-sized rooms with balconies and excellent views of Arenal. The grounds and pool are are very attractive and every member of the staff was friendly, helpful and interested in sharing stories.... More

Only had a couple of nights at this hotel, but absolutely loved it. Our room was a good size and spotlessly clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more professional .it was a great base for the tours we did. The grounds were beautiful and well kept, I would highly recommend

Stayed for a total of 3 nights at Magic Mountain Hotel in La Fortuna, and was happy with all aspects of our stay. The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the main centre of La Fortuna and will happily call you a taxi if the weather is bad or if you just don't fancy the walk. The room... More

We had not booked the Costa Rica part of our trip. We booked this at the last minute and got an awesome deal. I was a bit unsure with the distance from town and previous reviews. Don't bother listening to whiners. It's a flat easy walk into town, with ample restaurants nearby, supermarkets and amazing views from the rooms! The... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Magic Mountain. The staff & service were perfect, and it was a great deal for a very reasonable price. When it was raining (as it often does in the Arenal area this time of year), we enjoyed the amenities at the hotel. The covered areas around the spacious pool were very pleasant, and my... More

We stayed here one night. It was a special occasion and they upgraded us to a Junior Suite. This was an amazing room with a huge balcony overlooking the volcano and our very own hot tub! We also received a welcome cocktail delivered to our room. This hotel exceeded our expectations and the staff were extremely nice and helpful! Definitely... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on the first 5 day portion on our 11 day vacation in costs rica. The hotel is well situated, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown but on the main road (about 1.5 miles from downtown), and walking distance to several restaurannts (me casa, vagabonds, among them). It appears that the rooms have... More

The top draw of this hotel is the view from every room. It is lush, green and beautiful. We were here during the rainy season so our view of the volcano was limited unfortunately. But normally it is an excellent view. Our room was overlooking the pool and hot tub area and we enjoyed the location. The beds are very... More
