The Magic Mountain Hotel and package was nothing short of superb. For $630 USA for a couple we had all food and drinks included, a tour of the rainforest and hanging bridges as well as a hike to an amazing waterfall and active volcano. Topping it off with the most luxurious hot springs!! The guide was amazing and we learned... More

I was here with my son in 2007; this time the whole family came.. We got in late afternoon and needed two rooms which we had. I needed a roll away as my adult sons will not share a bed. It was little more than army cot which was disappointing.. There was a large tour group there while we were... More

We only had one night to spend here but our stay was very memorable. The room was clean and fairly luxurious. We had a spectacular view of the volcano from our balcony. So perfect it was almost surreal. The swimming pool was lovely and the pool bar was very warm. The jacuzzis too were awesome. The staff were amazingly friendly,... More

Service was great, rooms very good, bed was very comfortable! Breakfast buffet needs improvement! I recommend staying here. Great value. Location is excellent close to la fortuna 2 mins car 10 mins walking and great views of arenal volcano. Hotel has security at night. I observed this when i came back from new years celebration.

We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are great, we had booked excursions with the hotel in advance, it all went well. The reception desk is somewhat funny, the SPA good but empty and the bar and restaurant dismal. Take a cab to La Fortuna instead for a meal.

Excellent place to stay in this area. We were here on a Caravan tour. Rooms were very nice, with balconies and a pool. (Also a sport bar that I did not visit.) The main feature is a view of the volcano, but while we were there (two nights) it was too cloudy to see it. Better luck if the weather... More

It is located close to the city of La fortuna, which makes it easy to go to town. The staff is really nice and the pool is ok. Rooms are not nice at all. There are too many options around to make this hotel your option...
