What makes a hotel great for me is not always how big or well known it is but rather its employees and service. I stood 2 days at this hotel and 3 days at Riu Guanacaste had a better time in this hotel by far (you can see my Riu review also). Management at this hotel even extended happy hour... More

Magic Mountain was comfortable, clean and had beatiful grounds. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. I especially appreciated their willingness to call cabs and help us find safe places to visit for dinner. The breakfast buffet was a good way to start the day.

This was my first stop out of three on a rental car package tour of Costa Rica. The rooms were clean and modern, the breakfast buffet was filling, and the view was amazing. What made this hotel exceptional for me was the incredible landscaping of the courtyard. Like many others, this was my first stop in Costa Rica after driving... More

Amazing Hotel! Really comfortable room, always very clean. The Staff was amazing, the manager even gave us really complete directions to go to an attraction point outside the city. Parking is really safe; there is a guard all night starting at 6pm. Breakfast is great also!

I went to Costa Rica part of a Costa Rica Explorer group tour with G-Adventures - our second hotel was this one. Wow ! Beautiful rooms and nice spacious bathrooms.

I would have to say this was the best hotel to start our vacation and felt extremely accommodated for our whole stay here. We never intended to stay here but the other hotel (Mountain Paradise) was booked and I'm glad plans changed. Check in process was very smooth and the staff was super nice.

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
