Hotel Magic Mountain, La Fortuna
Great location and amenities
Carmen, us1 night family trip
Hotel Magic Mountain, La Fortuna
Decent but basic
Very disappointed that there weren't any Hot Springs on the property and the Hot tub was just luke warm. You have to pay extra to get the real Hot Springs at other hotels in the area. Example, Baldi's
Karen, us1 night romance trip
Hotel Magic Mountain, La Fortuna
Beautiful grounds and very nice rooms
William, us2 night family trip
Hotel Magic Mountain, La Fortuna
Great 3 night stay.
Great Choice, Breakfast was very good, Bed was comfortable and the staff could not be more accommodating. The "hot" tub was just barely warm. but rest of the grounds and pool area are beautiful and well maintained. Beware that, at the time of this writing, they are renting rooms in a new 3 story building on the property that currently has no elevator. Great View of the Volcano if there is no cloud cover. Unfortunately we were only able to see it for a few minutes as we were leaving.

When we check in , the front desk upgrade our standard room to Junior Suite for free. The room is big and has a beautiful volcano view.
