Great hotel in a great location. Clean facility and an awesome staff. They were so friendly and helpful. This is great both for families and couples- not a honeymoon per say but romantic "enough". Pool was fun and you can't beat the views on a clear day when the volcano is exposed. We were lucky enough to have breakfast with... More

I stayed at this hotel with 2 girlfriends. We had a lot of interaction with the hotel staff and they were very helpful and very kind. Nancy at the front desk was so helpful, she really made our trip better. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The views of the volcano are breathtaking. The hotel is 200 meters from... More

Arrived late, and GPS could not locate the hotel. Ended up calling and got directions from the front desk staff. We were greeted w cold drinks and nice people. The elevator didn't work and we had a 3rd floor room-but they offered to carry everything up. The room is very dated, but clean. Lots of activities and guides-good place to... More

Our travels began in La Fortuna, near Arenal Volcano and continued to the Pacific Coast. La Fortuna was our favorite place. Hotel Magic Mountain was clean, offered a nice swimming pool with a heated bar attached, poolside jacuzzis, and exceptional food. Our hotel room looked directly at the Arenal Volcano, a magnificent sight to wake up and see each morning.... More

We just returned from our first 8 day trip to Costa Rica, 3 nights of which were at Hotel Magic Mountain. (June 27-30, 2013) First of all, the staff was extremely helpful, especially with answering all our questions. The hotel is situated in the perfect place in La Fortuna, a short distance from the town, 30-40 minute drive to many... More

Delights: Staff is WONDERFUL! Very courteous, friendly, gracious. Adrian and Nancy greeted us likes kings and queens. Nancy is a top notch concierge and helped up plan day trips. Leo ran a hospitable front of house. Rooms comfortable, clean. Patios and views are extra special! Great pool. Disappointments: Tune steak not recommended. Food good, not great. Enjoyable experience.

Okay, I'm writing this on the first night, so it's possible that my views will change. However, the service and room so far have been excellent. Clean rooms (huge bed!), polite staff, a pool with a swim-up bar. Now, take all this with the knowledge that I've never really used a booking agency before, so I tend to find myself... More

We stayed here at the end of May 2013. The hotel is great! It is in a great location, within walking distance of La Fortuna and amazing views of the Arenal Volcano. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We were there in the slower season, so the pool and wet bar were never too crowded. I highly recommend this... More
