We had a reservation, but upon arrival, we found that they had a pipe issue and some rooms did not have working plumbing. The front desk was very, very apologetic and told us that they had booked us into a neighboring hotel. That hotel was wonderful too! I just wanted to say that I am so thankful and appreciative that... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. The front desk was very nice, attentive, and friendly. Each room has a balcony view of the volcano, though at this time of year (July), clouds mostly move in to cover it (don't let this deter your from staying here though, because clouds will move at time point during the day,...

This hotel was pleasantly surprising. It's not fancy or glamorous, but it's Costa Rica. If you want everything shiny and new, Costa Rica is probably not the destination for you. The staff were so friendly and really helped us with dining tips in town, booking transportation, and booking adventures. Every room has a volcano view, so you can't go wrong... More

There are alot of positives to this hotel. We had a jacuzzi suite that had a perfect view of the volcano that was simply amazing. Our room was excellent overall. The price was very reasonable and the staff were incredibly nice and helpful. The pool and warm water adult pool at the bar were great, but there is no register... More

Our family of four stayed three nights at Magic Mountain in early July 2015. Would definitely recommend it as a place for families to stay. It was very convenient to the town, with only a short walking distance to activities and restaurants. Our second floor room (202) had 2 double beds, balcony overlooking the pool and facing the volcano (fogged... More

The hotel itself is very basic. The junior suite made it a much more comfortable stay. Hot water was inconsistent and the free WiFi was very weak. The spa visit was great. The massage therapist IBELLEN LOGAN was very professional and provided excellent Swedish massage. Our stay was a jump station to daily attractions so it was sleep breakfast and... More

The staff themselves were very helpful and friendly. I was disappointed in the size of the room. The king sized bed was very squeaky so that we were awakened when one of us turned over. The food at the restaurant was very good. We were the only ones in the restaurant the first night but we were treated well.
