We stayed at the hotel 4 nights in early July. The rooms are big and very clean. Beds are comfortable. Rooms are however outdated, the shower doors are rusted, there are some holes in the walls. We did not have a safe in the room, there were a few insects in the room that we had to chase out every...

This one is tough to review, the rooms were clean and the staff very nice. Breakfast was buffet style and also very good. Our a/c had only one setting ( even though one was supposed to be able to change the temperature) and that was ice cold. After break fast we accidentally tried to enter our neighbors room and to...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and our stay was excellent. Our rooms was clean and comfortable and we had view of Arenal volcano from our room. I upgraded to Junior Suite which was fully worth it. Suite had a Zacuzzi in room. Morning breakfast was included with our rate and food was average. Hotel bar is ok...

The hotel staff are doing their best to create a magic moment. The garden is very well maintained. The tours reserved by the hotel are better then the ones you can find in the city center for cheaper prices.

Very luxurous hotel with nice facilities. Nice pool with a wet bar, with happy hour everyday from 5 to 6. Beds and bathrooms are also very nice. Wi-Fi was in our room, although the signal was so weak at times using the internet was problematic. In most common areas however the Wi-Fi was decent. One disappointment was the shower, which...

First tip: If you see the volcano take pictures right away. Because in July, it could be the only time you see it! We arrived after a very long drive from the coast. Our room had a great view of the volcano but I was so tired I thought I'd take pictures tomorrow. Big mistake! That was the only time...

This hotel is the worst that my family and I have stayed at so far on our travel around Costa Rica. This hotel needs to be renovated! The shower curtain has several big holes in it, the bathroom door is rusted, the moldings in the corners of the room needs to be replaced and the final shocker is that their...

We stayed for three nights at Magic Mountain. We received a warm greeting at check-in along with a welcome drink. All the rooms face the volcano and the hotel is well designed. The pool and wet bar area look nice from the room balcony. I spent quite a bit of time in the wet bar. They have a happy hour...

We stayed in July in a standard double room for our family of 4 (2 teenagers). Clean, nicely decorated, large bathroom, hairdryer, shampoo/conditioner, room safe, TV, Fridge and Coffee Maker (comes with 1 packet of coffee....additional packets are $1.00 each). I believe that all of the rooms (not a huge hotel), face the volcano. The weather never let us see...

Hotel Magic mountain is a great place for couples as well as other travellers. It is minutes away from other hotels and very popular hot springs in the area such as Tabacon hot springs and Baldi hot springs, (walking distance). In addition it is fairly close to the Arenal volcano observatory (although you would probably need to drive). A fair...
