Nice hotel with separate bungalows but traffic..

Posted Aug 9, 2017
Pros: Grounds, animals, food.
Cons: Nothing - just avoid front cabins.
Location: Go to down to earth coffee for the tours, eat at The Tick's restaurant, hike...
The grounds are gorgeous, the restaurant was wonderful, and having a barn with animals (go milk the cow and collect eggs!), was a joy. Each room was its own bungalow, and that was great, however we were up front and the road noise was a bother. The springs were wonderful and varied, and the staff great. If you can avoid cabins 1, 2, or 3, I think you'd have a perfect stay.

Dear Valued Guest, We appreciate your input based on your recent stay at El SIlencio del Campo. Thank you for your great comments about the grounds and the food at the restaurant. Glad to hear you enjoyed the farm visits. Next time you come you can ask for a unit located towards the middle or back of the property. However, i must say Villas 2 and 3 have a very nice of view of the Arenal Volcano. Since they are in the front, there are not more villas blocking the volcano view.

Beautiful grounds with their own hot spring pools.

Posted Aug 8, 2017
Can be a very romantic hotel and grounds for a honeymoon. We went with our family and felt a good place for a family too. Has four hot spring pools of various sizes. A small farm house where our kids milked a cow and could watch eggs being collected fior breakfast. Only has twenty something bungalows so it didn't seem busy around the pools.

Dear Valued Guest, We appreciate your nice feedback based on your stay at El Silencio. Sounds like the kids had fun at the farm with the cow milking and collecting the eggs. The hotel has a total of 23 villas and are all separate units so you will have more privacy when being in one of those.

Don't hesitate to stay here

Nothing but praise for this quiet oasis. The staff was energetic and attentive, the grounds drop dead gorgeous and the hot springs pool a taste of heaven. Looking back we should have made reservations for a longer stay.

Amazing!

Posted Jun 13, 2017
We stayed at El Silencio for three days at the beginning of the rainy season. I don't know how full it was, but we always had a feeling of having the resort to ourselves. The staff are amazing. Elio at the front desk was so cheerful and willing to help us with anything. May Ling at the bar was sweet as can be and made great drinks! The hot springs were perfect and our room was great. I have absolutely NOTHING bad to say about this resort.

We enjoyed our stay here from the time we drove in and were greeted with a welcome drink by Eliomar. He was so warm and friendly. We asked for a room towards the back further from the road and we got it.Our bungalow was comfortable & clean. The grounds are beautiful and if it is at all clear you can see the volcano from your window. We enjoyed the hot springs pools and the food was wonderful with great service from all the staff. Would recommend this place and it's location as it was very easy to get around to other sites.
