Not the fanciest of the resort properties located around Fortuna. However, it was very nice and had a great view of the volcano. You are close to town but probably will want to take a taxi (which was pretty cheap). If you are looking to spend a bunch of money and want to property with exotic features (animals on site,...

This hotel was superb.

The lady bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel...

The hotel was in a great location for being able to visit the national park and hot springs and also close to town making local restaurants and a local supermarket walkable. The hotel staff were very friendly and attentive. The buffet breakfast was solid. Only negative was that the hotel rooms while clean were a little dated. The view of...

Hotel was very clean, comfortable and a great value (of course, we were there in May). Balcony view of volcano and pool area is beautiful, unfortunately for us too many low clouds. Shower had good flow.

We stayed at Magic Mountain in November, just 6 months ago, and enjoyed it so much we rebooked for this trip. Something has changed with management or ownership and this visit was not as enjoyable. First, I recommend you do NOT prebook. We originally booked 1 room for 4 people. On arrival we decided to get a second room, giving...

Nice clean rooms. Great view. Great breakfast buffet. Way better than expected. Tv's are a little small butt hey swivel and can be seen from anywhere in the room. Overall a great experience. Quick access to the volcano.

We recently enjoyed a little family stay at this hotel. We got the junior suite on discount and I just had to ask to get a better price quote. Upon arrival we were greeted with a fresh juiced cocktail. It's a good place to rest and relax, not too far from town and all the attractions in La Fortuna. We'll...

Beautiful pool area with nice swim up bar. Nicely landscaped. Inside the rooms were dark and uninviting. There was one dimly lit ceiling light. I asked for another reading lamp but was told there was only one per room. Did get the second one with a 60 watt bulb. There is a coffee maker in the room but you have...

If you're looking for luxury, or used to it, this probably isn't the place. The rooms were fine - no complaints at all - but you stay here for the view, and proximity to La Fortuna and its restaurants. We (2 teens) were perfectly happy here. Pool was nice, pool bar, too. Views 10/10. Would stay again, no regrets, though...
