Hotel Magic Mountain
Reviewed 5 April 2012

We went to La Fortuna, Tabacon thermal waters and the Sky Tram then we decided to stay the night. We called in and they gave us a GREAT rate w/bkft! Loved it. Super clean, Modern rooms all with a view to the volcano and the beautiful pool area. Dinner at the restaurant was good. Breakfast was a small buffet but good enough for our family of 4 with kids. We Highly recommend it. Super safe too! Juan Carlos in reception was a great help suggesting a good canopy tour!

Room Tip: Ask for 2nd or 3rd floor location! However, rooms were really quiet!

My wife and I just returned from a weeklong trip to Costa Rica. Our first stop was in La Fortuna and we were fortunate enough to find a room at Magic Mountain. It provided one of the cleanest and more modern Hotels in the area. They have one of the best locations, with great views of the Arenal Volcano. Each room has a balcony facing the pool with the Volcano in the background. Wonderful breakfast included with nice restaurant for both lunch and dinner. Their happy hour provides a great transition from a full day of activities, and we enjoyed ours from the swim up bar at the pool. I would recommend for anyone staying in this area of Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Standard rooms have plenty of room but the corner suites give you a bit more room to spread out.

We stayed here for 4 days before heading to the beach. We had a nice room, I was a little disappointed with two double beds instead of a king and there were little tiny bugs in the bathroom but they didn't bite so no worries. The bartender at the pool was very nice and we enjoyed trying to speak Spanish as she was learning English. Overall it was a nice place to stay!

We enjoyed this smaller hotel. It had a great view of the volcano. We also really enjoyed the pool area. The pool was a bit cold but the pool and entire area around it was very clean and in good condition.

We had very good food at the pool area and in the restaurant.

The room was nice, my only compliant was that there were tiny little bugs in the bathroom. I chalked it up to being in the tropics, but it was annoying none the less.

The hotel was also easily accesible to the town.

We would stay here again.

We were on a Caravan tour - loved this small hotel, amazing views, nice refrig, 5 blocks to a grocery store to buy wine, beer or liquor. Unfortunately, as some have said, the hot tub is COLD - the reason why is that the heater is BROKEN. What a shame as there are two hot tubs with a spectacular setting. The buffet has few choices, one am all the food was cold and another am the only cereal (this is a tour of 44 adults) was fruit loops!!! With a few impovements, this could be a perfect hotel, unless you like the big properties. The volcano is right out the window and all the grounds are beautiful, with even a guard walking around the property.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are good - tho on a busy street we did not hear any street traffic.

I have stayed at a lot of places. Magic Mountain has excellent service, very clean, good-sized rooms, and superb views. There is also a very nice restaurant and their buffet is exceptional. I enjoyed the hot tub and pool and could come up with no complaints. Also really liked the native flowers around the grounds. Fortuna is a good jumping-off place to visit Arenal Volcano and sites to the east. I especially enjoyed Tortuguerros.
