Hotel Magic Mountain
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I went on holiday to CR with my parents and we couldn't have missed visiting Arenal area, where we did excursions to the national park and waterfalls on hanging bridges, went to the hot springs, enjoyed canopy and rappel. There are so many things to see and do in that area. The hotel in Fortunal has a great location, you can see the vulcano perfectly from the bedroom and swimming pool, wonderful facilities, and the staff was very kind, helpfull and friendly.

It is a small hotel but very clean and nice. Our room is on the third floor (room 308). We have the perfect view to the arenal volcano....can't complain. We really enjoyed our stay there. Downtown La Fortuna is only 2 miles from this hotel so you can walk there....15 minutes walk. Restaurants are next door to this hotel.

Room Tip: Get the highest floor so you can have beautiful view to arenal volcano

My husband and I stayed here for the first three nights of our trip and it was great! We were greeted by drinks at the reception and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is really close to town, but also not too far from all the attractions- Lake Arenal, the hikes in the park, hot springs, the volcano. Yes, there were a few ants in the room, but they were tiny compared to other ants, and we are in immersed in nature after all, so we weren't bothered by it. In fact, every hotel we stayed at had some kind of any or insect. Great view of volcano from balcony, and buffet breakfast was good. Typical food with the beans and rice, plantain, pancakes, egg station on weekdays, and they change the meats everyday. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a good value for their money.

Room Tip: Stay in 3rd level if you can for a better view of Arenal.

Nice and clean hotel located on the edge of la Fortuna and thus ans unspoiled view on the vulcano. Clean and attractive swimming pool. Excellent place to stay for visiting the numerous attractions in the area. Probably not the most abundant hotel in the regio but a good price/quality balance.

We had a fabulous time at this hotel. We found that everyone on staff was kind and helpful. The hotel was in an excellent location - close to the Volcano and to the town.We had excellent views of the Volanco from our room. The rooms were clean and we were not afraid to leave valuables when taking off for the day. I don't know if this is normal for the wet season, but the hotel was very quiet. We were often alone in the pool and bar. So, if you want to meet lots of people, perhaps not the best choice.

Very helpful and friendly staff. In your face view of Arenal from our balcony. We bought a couple bottles of wine at a local market and though survived a 9 hour hike and a horse back ride the next day, didn't miss a sunset from our balcony. Yea there were ants in the bathroom, but if bugs in the room really bug you, don't visit Costa Rica.

Decided to stay in La Fortuna so we could explore the Volcano for a full day. Walked into Hotel Magic Mountain and Karina helped us. She was great. Showed us our room before we decided to stay and it had an amazing view of the volcano! She also helped us find a great family coffee farm to visit the next day and was such a great experience. We would recommend this hotel to everyone. Great price and great service.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of volcano.. Amazing
