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...

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...

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...

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...

Friendly wait staff who speak Spanish and are willing to speak English as best they can. Food is fairly good. Mostly CR menu. Breakfast buffet included. Too much construction was going on near our...

Stayed at Magic Mountain in December 2016, second time I have stayed at this hotel (last in 2012). It met my standards for a very clean, budget friendly, peaceful stay with a great view of Arenal volcano (if no clouds). The staff were all very accommodating and hotel has a nice pool with Jacuzzi-like pool bar. The breakfast was typical...

Nice clean rooms with balconies in a modern hotel. Beautiful view of the volcano and the pool. Only stayed one night. Enjoyed the dinner very much. There were not enough people there to warrant them doing a buffet breakfast so we ordered off the menu for that and it was good.
