The title says it all, we took the suite and were totally surprised when we entered the room. You have a jacuzzi from where you can see the Arenal volcano, and the room is very nice and big. Nice balcony and a minibar in which you can store your own drinks if you want. If you are bored with your... More

Stayed in a Junion suite which was lovely! As others mentioned, clean, great views of the volcano, nice balcony etc. Ground floor was nice as we were able to watch the humming birds work the garden. Nice pool, great included breakfast (didn't need to have lunch) close to the main town centre. Sports bar (attached to the hotel) had a... More

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel, and area, and can't wait to return! Rooms - upgrade to the suites, there are only a few of these rooms and you have to pay a little extra but they are definately worth it. Jacuzzi in the living room area, large sitting area on balcony, rooms very spacious and georgous! Staff... More

We stayed here for two nights and were very pleased with our stay. Our room had a great room of the volcano, which we enjoyed for 30 minutes when we arrived before it disappeared for the remainder of our time in La Fortuna. The staff was nice and the room was very clean. We slept well. We did not use... More

We spent 3 nights of a 10 night trip to Costa Rica at Magic Mountain. I don't have anything particularly good or bad to say about this hotel. It didn't impress, nor was it bad. The rooms were mostly clean...we had a problem with ants on our first day. I mentioned it to the front desk and the ants disappeared,... More

We got here... management showed us our room. Room looked nice... not that great. Pillows on bed smelled... jacuzzi can't be turned on without the front desk which closes at 10. The management is pushy to make you sign up for their preferred tour groups. Internet only in front lobby... which is closed at 10. Delivered us moldy fruit. The... More

We stayed here for the first few nights of our two week honeymoon in Costa Rica. It was a great way to start it off! Beautiful view right outside your room! This was a great location because we could walk into La Fortuna town to grab some food or do a little souvenir shopping. All adventures pick you up right... More

This hotel has amazing views of the volcano...right outside your room! We were so pleased with the comfy, quaint feel of this hotel. There's no bells and whistles here (except, of course, the view), but it was perfect for us. The pool was nice, staff friendly, the breakfast was just okay, but came free with our package, so no complaints!... More

The view of the Arenal volcano was fabulous, the accommodations were a great value for the price we paid. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. A breakfast buffet was included with our stay and we made sure to make it there before 9:30am everyday. My only complaint is while they offer free wifi, you could only use it in... More

A buddy and I went to Arenal for a few days and this place was perfect. Great views of the volcano, well kept grounds, pools/jacuzzi. friendly/helpful staff, nice rooms, and reasonably priced. It was centrally located as well, which was nice. There is a bar/restaurant as well that had decent breakfast and a solid place for end of night drink.... More
