4 of us stayed here June 17-21. We arrived to pouring rain, but were greeted by friendly staff and cocktails! Our rooms were clean and had everything we needed. We couldn't see the volcano the first day, but had gorgeous views after that. The pool was great, but only 1 of 2 hot tubs were working. Our breakfast was included,... More

We spent two nights at the Magic Mountain hotel. It was very nice and within walking distance to town. A good walk though. The taxi ride back was relatively cheap just in case you are in a down pour. We did the 4x1 tour and had a great time. The tour takes you to the hanging bridges which was amazing,... More

Very helpful staff at this beautiful motel. They really went out of their way to make sure we got to see and do some fun activities. We had a great view of the volcano, had a great time watching soccer at the wet bar and had an excellent breakfast each day. Had a great river safari and saw the great... More

We spent two nights at this location as part of an Air Canada Vacations Ecotour in March 2014. Our room had a wonderful view of the Arenal Volcano from our balcony, which also had a table and 2 chairs, which was great for sitting outside and relaxing. I recommend that you keep the drapes closed and the light off, however,... More

We stayed here with Caravan Tour, we were looking to stay at this hotel just because of the name, everything was magical in this area, the view of the big volcano was beautiful. The food and service were good. The rooms felt like a private house in a magical location.

Great place, comfortable, clean, and in excellent condition. There were only a few other families there, which made it nice and peaceful for our stay. The grounds, while in the beginning of off-season, were still clean and in great condition. The pool was very relaxing, and additionally so when the bar was open. :) The views of Arenal were unbeatable,... More

My family and I stayed 3 nights here this past week as part of a week-long Costa Rica vacation. We loved it!! The rooms were clean, the pool was nice, the staff was great, the breakfasts were yum, the wi-fi worked fine... The hotel is close to zip-lining canopy tours and horseback riding (lots of fun, btw). The view of... More

Great Staff and my room was very clean. Enjoyed the swim-up bar. Have absolutely no complaints about the restaurant. Ate two wonderful breakfasts and great dinners. My hotel stay was part of a 9-day vacation booked by Caravan Tours. Hotel is located near some very nice volcanic hot springs to die for...

We stayed at this hotel because of recommendation from a friend who stayed there last October and I have to say it was not what he explained it to be. Dont get me wrong the property is beautiful and the staff is friendly but the service is lacking for a hotel at this price. The location is great and there... More

Great staff and rooms with swim up bar in their pool. Great location just outside of Fortuna. Fairly close to the Fortuna waterfalls. Downtown Fortuna is about a mile away with many souvenir shops. The free breakfast is a great bonus and the chef cooked whatever you wanted.
