Just checked out after three lovely nights at this hotel. Good location near plenty of shops, restaurants and laundrettes. Very nice and clean pool. The room was very clean, and the bathroom very spacious and well equipped. Breakfast was delicious !
My friend and I recently traveled to Arenal for the weekend, and we loved our stay at Hotel Magic Mountain. The location was fairly convenient to the center of town/different tours and hot springs. The restaurant was decent, and the employees were all very nice, ESPECIALLY the pool bartender Fernando. He was so welcoming when we first got to the hotel and was so friendly and nice to talk to. He made delicious drinks and gave us great recommendations on things to do in the area. Highly recommend this hotel, but even more so recommend stoping by the pool for a drink from Fernando!
Hotel Magic Mountain was in a great location with an amazing view of the Arenal Volcano and close proximity to everything. The hotel staff was very welcoming and friendly, especially Fernando at the pool bar, who not only was very friendly, but also very helpful with giving us suggestions on things to do while in the area. Fernando really made the trip a fun and welcoming experience.
I stayed at this hotel 3 years ago, the rooms needed much work. On this return visit, I was happy to see that 3 new buildings were constructed, and I stayed in a brand new room overlooking the pool, with a vista including the Arenal Volcano. May is off season, and I had the restaurant to myself. Dinner was very good, breakfast was included with my room. There are more than a dozen species of birds that call the pool area home, and at night I could hear frogs. There is a porch on the outside of each room, I sat outside of my 3rd floor room and watched the ever changing view of the volcano, as clouds and fog drifted by. There are many options for activities that one can choose from the hotel or other outfitters in town. I now highly recommend Magic Mountain Hotel as a very nice place to stay.…
Overall we enjoyed our stay. Here for 3 nights and booked the hotel again after staying here 7 years ago for our Honeymoon. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are moderately appointed with everything you’d expect from a hotel. Views overlooking the pool and volcano area are fantastic from the 2 or 3 floors. That’s where the fun ends. This hotel is in need of some love and repair. The pool area is nice until you head to the hot tubs that are missing tiles and leave sharp edges. Hot tub is also a kind word for these Luke-warm baths with water that has a very fowl smell. Many of the fountains around the pool are are no longer working. This last part may have been our bad luck, but we ended up having a non-working fridge and on day 1/2 has an AC unit that sounded like it was struggling to work only to be moved FAR across the hotel to another room when our AC finally gave way and didn’t work. This was disappointing to have to pack and move about as far as you could across the hotel. Even in slow season they wouldn’t give us a room a door or two down even though they were all empty. The only bonus to this move was it was in to a new room in their 3rd building, but even it had a running toilet that wouldn’t stop the entire time we were here. Staff service amazing. Hotel, not to much. But a wonderful stay either way!…
Clean, very helpful at the front desk! Restaurant was good! Amazing view of the volcano! Fernando at the pool bar was amazing! Very nice guy who made a great margarita! Would come back again! Thanks for a great stay!
The hotel grounds are really nice.. nice pool..The rooms are clean..we loved the balcony, facing the jungle.. In the morning it came alive, the noise was unbelievable,from the birds & in the distance could hear the monkeys..we loved it..The restaurant was good, great breakfast...Staff was nice...
When checking in at two, we were advised the rooms were not ready. A group of the five of us sat in the lobby waiting to be notified when rooms would be ready, but nobody seemed to care. Reception staff just shrugged off when asked when rooms would be ready or gave the "in half an hour" promise, which turned into two hours. At no time did anyone ask us if they could help us. We were a party of three with only two towels in the room. Had to ask for more, which were brought up very quickly. Shampoo, conditioner and soap were not replaced. The toilet made a gurgling sound most of the night and I had to shut it off. Wineglasses (actual glass) was permitted in the pool area. Breakfast was ok, without being great (some of the pastries had seen better days). Good coffee, lots of fruit and made to order eggs. Close to restaurants and supermarkets. Great pool, even if it was closed part of the day for a photo shoot. Hotel policy is one key per room, which was a bit annoying. Nice balcony overlooking the pool, however the music from the pool bar was a bit much at times. Some of the stairs had not been cleaned in a while. With improvement of customer relations, they could enhance their image.…
Juan Jose was really amazing help to us. So impressed by this level of service from him. Hotel is a nice respite from those seeking a break from the jungle ecolodges. Pool is nice and the rooms are comfortable. We hope to visit lovely La Fortuna again soon!
This was a great hotel. It had a large swimming pool and multiple small pools all which overlooked the volcano. We had an amazing view from our room. Room was very clean and showers were hot. It is located at the end of the town, but was about a 20 minute walk to the center. Loved our stay here and would highly recommend!
