Great views

Overall this hotel was great. Staff was very friendly and every room had a view of the volcano. The only issue we had was that they advertised king size beds...they did not have any king beds. That was our only complaint.

Family getaway

The Hotel has a great location, where your close to town and great view of Arenal Volcano. The house keeping were very nice and cleaned the room very well. Also the waiters in the restaurant were very nice. What it does need is better staff service in the main lobby, better beds and TV's and Wi-Fi service through out the hotel. I wouldn't stay there again, its not as relaxing as it seems. Good luck!!!!

Nice view of Arenal volcano

Overall the hotel was excellent, the staff were very helpful and polite, the food at the free buffett was excellent, however, their should be more daily variety. The hotel was kind of far from downtown but taxis are available for $3. The front desk is not open 24 hr, so if you need to checkout you have to wait untill 6 am. Our room kind was very difficult to work with, tried several times before you can open the door. The room was nice and so with bed. The safe storage was very useful. I would stay here again.

Just so we're clear

This was a clean hotel but we needed wifi in the room, not just in the lobby. Breakfast okay each morning.

It is all about the view

The experience at the Magic Mountain is all about the view. Booked a mountain view room and was not disappointed, we were lucky that we able to glimse the whole mountain on the first day but not again until we left 3days later. The room was very comfortable and very clean, there were a lot of tour groups passing through but the swimming area was very quiet. The breakfast food was average at best but overall value for money and the location were great.

Nice place to stay

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Magic Mountain while we were hiking the rainforests and the Arenal Volcano area. It's very close to all the attractions and was easy to find. The room was super clean and our only complaint was that the bed was uncomfortably hard and the pillows were like pancakes. We never saw the volcano while were were there because of cloud cover but I'm told by other visitors that we would see it from our balcony if it were clear. The grounds of the hotel are absolutely lovely. The quantity and variety of flowers is wonderful. I really enjoyed all the hummingbirds buzzing around. The pool looked nice but we never got in it as it rained the entire time we were there, but it is in the rainforest region so I guess you have to expect that! The staff there was very friendly and helpful. They were especially prompt whenever you requested assistance. Overall, a nice place to stay and I would recommend it to travelers!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

We did an all day excursion which included Hanging Bridges (fabulous), Waterfall (very beautiful and you get to swim), Arenal Volcano (we did get to see a glimpse of the slopes but never the top) and the Thermal Springs Spa (I enjoyed this but my husband did not). The tours included lunch and dinner. The lunch was at a local diner and the food was great! The dinner was at the buffet for the hotel where the hot springs were located and the food was horrible there. Our guide was a wealth of information and the driver never made me feel nervous as I have while on other trips. Absolutely recommend this excursion which we booked through our hotel!!

Great Spot, Great Value

I don't know how, but 0rbitz managed to get us a room here for about half the hotel's regular rate. The room was clean and comfortable, and the view from our balcony was absolutely stunning: it overlooked the pool, a sloping meadow with cows, and then Arenal Volcano itself. It looked like almost all the hotel's rooms have similar views. The staff was friendly, and the included breakfast was actually really good! Overall, we had a terrific trip and would definitely stay here again (or go camping/backpacking).

Desafio tours in La Fortuna are wonderful. Also, a fun place to eat there is the Lava Lounge. Cheesy in a good way. Friendly dogs, too. Watch out for the Sangria though...

Adventures in La Fortuna

While in La Fortuna, we rode horses, ATVs and we ziplined. The hotel is in a great location, just minutes away from the small center of town and near a supermarket. All of the rooms face the Arenal Volcano - you can't go wrong with any of the room selections.
