There is a swim up bar and they also have happy hour here. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant was expensive but very very good!! I highly... More

Upon arriving in La Fortuna, following a long and difficult drive from the airport in Liberia, we were very happy to find our lodging at Hotel Magic Mountain. After entering the lobby and beginning the check-in process, we were offered a delicious and much appreciated drink of chilled star fruit juice. This set the tone for our three night stay.... More

Spent one night here march 10th. This was our 3rd stay at this hotel, the location is a bit of a walk to downtown, but cabs are cheap. Rooms are quiet, staff is helpful. They have an included breakfast, with a large selection of fresh fruits. an omelet station and pancakes.

There were times that we actually walked the town which is so cute. It is also a short driving distance to the hot springs,and Arenal National Park. The hotel staff is very nice... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in one of the deluxe rooms and we absolutely enjoyed our stay! Everybody at the hotel and the restaurant was extremely nice and friendly. During our stay, they helped us book all of our tours/adventures at the front desk, which made getting everything planned really easy. The rooms were very nice and clean and... More

After a 5 hour flight and a short stay in San Jose, we stayed for 4 nights in El Magic Mountain, which we reserved via internet. At special request of our boys (9 and 11) we could change our room for two days for a room at the nice swimmingpool (The other days these rooms were already reserved). Magic Mountain... More

This is definitely a place to stay in while in Arenal area. It is in close proximity to the Fortuna town proper but also close to the wildlife experience of the Arenal landscape. Hotel staff is great and very accommodating. They are friendly. They go for extra miles to ensure that their guests are well treated and enjoying their vacation.... More
