We were greeted warmly by the attentive staff with fresh juice and hot towel to refresh outselves after a long day on the road. We arrived after dark so really had no idea how fantastic the location was until the next day. When we awoke, we were astounded to find that the hotel was at the base of Arenal Volcano... More

Stayed there 2 nights and enjoyed every bit of it. Awesome view of the Volcano and conveniently located to a few stores. Most hotels there are hidden away in the forest so it makes it hard to escape the hotel food. Everyone was super nice and the 2 for 1 happy hour was a great way to unwind at the... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Magic Mountain with my husband and two teenage daughters in a Execu. Jr. Suite. Very nice rooms with a beautiful view of the Volcano. We arrived after midnight (thank god for GPS) and there was a guard/bellhop right there to help us. Rooms included breakfast as well. Cute little town with lots of fun... More

Our room was very nice with a great view of the volcano. The breakfast buffet was very good, with lots of tropical fruit. The pool was beautiful, the pool bartender was friendly and patient even with a large group of customers, the spa was very relaxing. We walked a short distance down the road to a soda (like a cafe)... More

We loved staying here! The staff were friendly and helpful (though they spoke very little English), the rooms were spacious and clean with a great view of the volcano, and the hotel was located close to the volcano, hot springs, and the town of La Fortuna.

Our stay couldn't have been better. Everyone was so nice and helpful, especially Evert. The food served at the hotel restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced. The wait staff was very friendly. T he room was comfortable with a spectacular view of Arenal. We would definitely come back again and we recommend it to our friends at Trip Advisor.

We had a good stay at the Mágic Mountain Hotel. Free Wi- Fi in the lobby was good as many people logged in at night and I still could make FaceTime calls. A little bit out of the way for a small town. Very nice pool. And as everywhere in Costa Rica, very kind and polite service.

From the outside the Magic Mountain looks "motelish", however the rooms and grounds are great. Our room overlooked the pool/garden area. Beyond the hotel property was a wooded area and pasture w/ cows and the volcano...very beautiful. The room had a refrigerator, coffee maker and safe. The staff were great...very helpful w/ suggestions/directions etc. We ate the first night at... More
