Very clean and comfortable. Loved it for our 1 night in Arenal. Had dinner at the restaurant, food and service were excellent. Stayed on a Saturday night so the disco was going til the wee hours, and still not intrusive to our sleep. Pool was great, hot tub wasn't very hot. Would definitely stay again.

The grounds were very green and nicely landscaped. We also enjoyed the pool bar and a nice clean pool. The hotel rooms have lots of room for improvement: our safe didn't work, our key cards didn't work and were given a master physical key that allowed us to open any door we wanted, the WiFi was basically non existent in...

Absolutely incredible!! The pictures really don't do this place justice. We were absolutely blown away by Hotel Magic mountain. When we first got there, we realized there had been a problem between our booking company and the hotel. Our receptionist was more than helpful, and the entire staff was so accommodating. They even offered to comp us a room for... More

We just came off a fantastic experience in Manuel Antonio. Now onto Arenal - We had two rooms, one needed a key, the other a key card (btw, the card only worked upside down and opposite the instructions on the card itself and the key said master and worked both doors). The roomed was clean with spectacular views of the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour. The hotel is positioned so that all rooms face the volcano. The grounds are small but beautifully landscaped, especially around the pool area. When the clouds lift, the view of the volcano is awesome! The rooms are small but nicely appointed. During our stay the hotel had our group and another... More

We stayed here for two days while we visited Arenal. The view is magnificent and I appreciated the pool and two hot tubs. There was even a swim up bar with happy hour. This place was definitely good for a vacation. Happy hours jumped from pool to bar to restaurant and the food we had for dinner was outstanding. We... More

We took a five day get away to Coasta Rica and stayed at Hotel Magic Mountain. At first I did not know what to make of the name. When I hear " Magic Mountain," I automatically think man made water slides and artificial smoke coming from a paper mache volcano..... But that was not the case ! We stayed on... More

This hotel was more of a botique hotel. Very quaint. The rooms are basic, tile floors, mini-fridge, very clean and they overlook the Arenal volcano and on a clear day it is quite a view. The pool has a swim up bar with stools in the water. There is a restaurant on site and very good food. Hospitality is very... More

I recently stayed at Magic Mountain two weeks ago, I would have to say an incredible experience. My favorite part about staying at Magic Mountain was waking up every morning to an incredible view of the Arenal volcano. It was breath taking waking up to this incredible scenery. The staff is incredibly sweet and helpful. They make you feel so... More
