We stayed at this hotel as part o the Caravan tour of Costa Rica. The hotel was clean, comfortable with a wonderful pool area and fantastic spa!! The massage was perfect for winding down after a day of climbing and the hanging bridges!! A short walk to the supermarket and some incredible woodworking shops made this stay even more enjoyable....

You may have fun at a picnic, but you still have to put up with a few flies. Magic Mountain is just the same. It is nice and very clean but over the course of our three day stay we found several irritants that took away from the magic. We were in room 301 on Feb 15-18, 2012. There was... More

This is a nice, mid-priced hotel in the area offering great views of the volcano from all of the rooms. All of the rooms have balconies or patios. Our room was on the third floor and although not spacious, it was well maintained and large enough for the two of us. The staff was polite and helped us book a... More

The staff was very attentive to our needs, Although there were a few issues they were resolved quickly. We had a safe that did not work a few times but each time they would come to replace or fix it. The pool area was lovely and the rooms have Volcano views. Also, the hotel is situated in a nice area... More

I am in my late 20s and my husband is in his early 30s. This was our first adult trip outside of the US. We are beginners at traveling...so we don't know what things to pay attention to. WHat we can say: the front desk staff was friendly and informative. The room was clean, spacious, and QUIET. We really appreciated... More

Hotel Magic Mountain is at the foot of Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. It is clean, and beautiful, with a wonderful view of the volcano. A buffet breakfast is also provided.There are many activities and tours that can be done right from the hotel. If you are coming from Liberia, plan for a 3-4 hour drive. Have plenty of gas... More

We had a suite with a jacuzzi and a great view of the pool and volcano. The jacuzzi took a while to warm up, but after that it was great. We also had a nice balcony. The bathroom was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. We were close to La Fortuna and not too far from the hot springs... More

As a woman traveling alone to a place I've never been, I felt perfectly safe. The staff was wonderful and very patient. I made a mistake and booked the same tour twice, they made every effort to rectify the situation and get me on another tour asap. The food was good but a little too salty in the main restaurant...

Check in was very smooth. Front desk staff spoke good english and were very helpful our entire stay. They called the tour company to verify tours we had arranged prior to arrival. The hotel was extremely clean. The flowers around the pool made for a beautiful view from our balcony. The breakfast was good and allowed us to eat authentic... More
