I was extreamly satisfied with my stay at the Magic Mountain Hotel. This may have something to do with the upgrade me and my wife received upon check in. We were checked into a suite consisting of a living area, huge bathroom, wet bar, and a large jacuzzi tub overlooking the volcano. The room was tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. When in Cost RIca you should not spend that much time at your hotel anyway, but it was an added bonus to have a nice room.
The staff at the hotel was very polite and welcoming. They were really eager to attend to the guests needs. Excellent customer service.
The property is very nicely groomed with pretty gardens and pool area. Wonderful surroundings for relaxation. All rooms have a nice balcony overlooking the majestic volcano. There were no eruptions at the time of our stay there and apparently the vulcan has not been active for about 3 months now, but it is still some sight to observe, especially when it show itself in its full glory. The clouds usually obscure the full view of the top but over a couple of days there are opportunities to see it in its entirety.
The town of La Fortuna is only about a mile down the road 15-20 on foot, short taxi ride. There are numerous diners and a shops in close vicinity of the hotel, so you have some dining options just outside the doors. Baldi Hot Springs are quite close as well.
Buffet style breakfast may be the low point of the hotel. Out of all the hotels in Costa Rica this place had the least tasty breakfast, but you are sure to find something to fill you up (eggs, baked goods, fruit). Very good coffee and fresh orange juice.
I would highly recommend this place.
