We stayed three nights at this hotel. We chose this hotel because we found a great deal and since it seemed to have a great view of the volcano. And we had a great view of the volcano! The room was spacious and clean. We had a problem with ants but when we told about it at the reception, they... More

I liked this place, despite a few issues. The view is great, the beds are comfortable, and the balcony is wonderful at night. The customer service was good at the bar and in the restaurant where we ate the decent breakfast, but the front desk staff are imbeciles. They are alternately rude, incapable and downright dumb. Ants in rooms are... More

Everything was wonderful at this hotel. The rooms are clean and the hotel staff wonderful. Spa was very very good, pool and bar were great. The meals and service were spectacular. Great location to go to volcano or into the cute town.

My boyfriend and I stayed here as part of a Living Social deal we had purchased. We definitely enjoyed our 2 days/2 nights here. The view from the rooms (and all of the rooms face Arenal volcano) is spectacular. Make sure you wake up early to get a clear view before it clouds over! Our hotel room looked exactly as... More

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

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.

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
