Where shall I begin? Surely there was something good about this place. It was an easy walk to a delightful restaurant down the road. One of our two rooms was ready at check-in time. The safe in one of our rooms worked, with the use of the key they loaned us. The staff at reception was very disorganized and difficult to communicate with. The rooms had no towel racks in the bathroom or the room. It took 3 to 4 tries with the key card to unlock the room door every time we tried it. In one of our ... Read more

Stayed here with Caravan Tours. The rooms are old and dated, but adequate. The food buffet was also just okay. Fairly skimpy breakfast but lots of good local fruit. The people are friendly and accommodating, so that part is good.

The staff at this hotel was very helpful and pleasant. However, the facilities need to be worked on. The hotel caters to groups and every day one or two busloads of the Caravan tour company arrived. When they were there the food from the breakfast buffet, which was scarce to begin with, was gone by 7:30AM. We had a jacuzzi in our upgraded room but it was rusted. The shower faucet was ready to fall off and there were no towel racks.. The airconditiong leaked. There was a desk in a corner but... Read more

The view of the volcano from our ground floor room was awesome. The room itself needed work. Leaking faucets, toilet not stable needed anchoring properly. TV in room but not working. Just annoying little things. Restaurant food was adequate but nothing to go wild about. I was glad to leave after two nights.

If you are looking to stay in a nice place without breaking the bank. The staff was helpful and friendly. The view of the Arenal Volcano is fantastic. The location is perfect. The pizza place 2 doors down was great and the supermarket was about a 3 minute walk which was perfect since we kept going back for snacks or things we had forgotten to bring (toothbrush, razor!). Complimentary breakfast was a plus. A buffet every day. Great vacation.

Stayed in December 2016. Hotel with balcony room overlooking the pool & volcano was awesome. We had one of the suites and with 4 adults staying in the room it was worth the extra $$ to have extra room to spread out! Breakfast buffet was also well-stocked and delicious. Pool was well kept and swim up bar was fun. There was a nearby eatery (Mi Casa I think - down the road on the left across from the supermarket) that was quite delicious for lunch/dinner. Surprise fireworks were provided by the hot... Read more

When planning your trip to Costa Rica, spending several days in the Arenal area is a must. The town of La Fortuna has wonderful restaurants and there is so much to do within a short drive of this area, from whitewater rafting, horseback riding, ziplining and hiking. Using Hotel Magic Mountain for your stay is a great idea! The location is ideal. You are less than 5 minutes from about 50 restaurants that range from cheap/local cuisine to 5 star gourmet dinners. The hotel staff including Evert, ... Read more

Very friendly staff, but poor and old installations. The keys never worked properly (we were in 3rd floor), TV with poor signal, shower did not work, air conditioning very old and furnitures are deteriorated as well. 4 stars price for a 2 starts hotel.

Extremely friendly hotel staff, however I believe because they are undergoing several renovations right now (I traveled to the hotel December 2016) this is causing a lot of other issues like broken key readers on doors, unfinished rooms, poor to no wifi in hotel rooms and lack of phones. Great location and wonderful staff, however I would recommend waiting till they have finished renovations before staying.

This hotel was a wonderful hotel, a wonderful plus was the amazing view of the Arenal Volcano! The complimentary breakfast tasted amazing! The hot tubs were amazing, but the pool was a bit cold (but refreshing for a hot day) and the kid pool was a little dirty. Overall we had a wonderful stay!
