Our stay was July 28-30th 2012. Great location, very clean rooms, comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful in booking extra excursions and getting us extra items for the room as needed. The breakfast buffet consisted of eggs, rice/beans (which was great), potato's, sausage, pancakes, cereal, granola, toast and fresh fruit ( watermelon, pineapple and papaya) The juice was some...

We stayed at Magic Mountain hotel in April, 2012. We arrived at Liberia airport and drove to La Fortuna (the drive, according to my boyfriend was like being in a video game); by the time we got in, it was late night and we were given a room on the first floor overlooking the pool...we were tired and a little...

Magic Mountain hotel is a nice, basic place to stay, however there are some details that could be improved. The staff was very friendly, the hotel is beautiful and have a great view of the volcano from the balcony (even from bed). It also has clean rooms, the price is really reasonable, the location is excellent (in front of the... More

We had a great time during our stay at Magic Mountain. They have a good, friendly customer service and we had a comfortable stay. The breakfast was included, however it was an average breakfast buffet. Overall it's a good hotel for the price.

About the only thing going for this hotel was the views of the volcano, but anyone who has stayed in Fortuna would know that there are loads of hotels up and down the same road that also have volcano views but perhaps nicer facilities. This place was basically a motel, meaning that your room opens directly to the outside. I... More

This hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. The food was very good at the property and the pool was very clean. The hotel boasts an amazing view of the volcano from the gardens. The grounds are very well maintained. At night when you sit outside you can hear the howler monkeys chatting. It is a short... More

We stayed here for two days prior to continuing on the Guanacaste... It really was a basic little place. The parking lot is TINY and you have to pray you don't get blocked in. There is a little restaurant, but the food is just average. There was a buffet for meals, but you had to fight the ants and flies... More
