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 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

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
