Our flight to San Jose was delayed seven hours, so we arrived at Hotel Magic Mountain at around 11:30PM. Although reception was closed, the security guard found us wandering about and helped us to our room. We were pleasantly surprised by a beautiful fruit plate and cute towel elephants on the bed! It was a super pleasure to walk into... More

If you are looking for a romantic dinner, talk with the manager Manuel, and he will not disappoint you. We ate at the restaurant Lina's twice out of our three nights and were not disappointed. All staff made us feel special during our stay. Rooms were clean and we had a great view from the 3rd floor. If only the... More

We loved this cozy hotel. We arrived at 11pm and were greeted at the door by Jose. The girls in the front reviewed everything with us and made us feel so welcomed. Breakfast was very good and the views and peacefulness was awesome. We were so sad when we left.

We were grandparents and a 10 year old staying at this hotel. The hotel was clean and had beautiful grounds and pool. The pool had many times when there were about 4 people using it. Room had a refrigerator and safe and views to Arenal Volcano. We had clear days when we could see it right to the top. Hot... More

We were part of the Caravan Tours group that stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Magic Mountain Hotel room was ok, a little old looking. Every room balcony has a magnificent view of Arenal Volcano. The beds were very comfortable. Room had a mid size fridge. There was no closet but a stone counter and a few hangers on... More

Located within walking distance to local restaurants and close to many attractions, waterfalls, zip lines, hot springs etc. small pool with swim up bar family feel about the place. Staff push excursions when you arrive (negotiate with pricing) plenty of excursion/adventure companies dotted around the town. We chose to drive into town and ate at Lava Lounge one night (OK)...

Our package included a junior suite. The room was spcious. It included a hot tub from which you could see the dormant volcano. From this location you can easily walk to the grocery stores and many sodas. The only downside was trouble getting pool towels and the WIFI did not work in the room. We simply went to the lobby...
