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 each day from 5 to 6. Santos at the wet bar was very friendly and took good care of us. You can have food ordered to the web bar as well. Daily breakfast was pretty good with omelette station being the highlight. Since the breakfast area is semi open there are flies who conglomerate around the cut fruits. Not surprisingly there were not many takers for the fruit platter. The front desk manager is a hard and dedicated worker who seems to be there all the time.
On day two it rained in the afternoon like crazy. It was neat to sit in the wet bar with a drink in hand and see the rain drops bounce off the pool. Once the rain stopped and we were walking back we see people in other rooms taking pictures. We thought we were the celebrities only to realize that the clouds had opened up and Arenal was in full view. What a view! We could actually see steam coming out of the crater. The viewing lasted only a few hours before the clouds came back in but we got lucky as we later learned that it had been two weeks since the last sighting.
