Peaceful abode in a fun and active town!

Posted Dec 10, 2017
Pros: The hot springs were right next to our rooms!
Cons: Nothing!
Location: La Fortuna had delicious food and it was close to so much wildlife and outdoor adventures.
We had read about La Fortuna and thought it might be a little too wild for us! Staying at this hotel was our oasis. We were minutes away from the restaurants in La Fortuna and the amazing wildlife / outdoors, but could easily retreat into the hot springs (right by our rooms!!!) and forget we were near so many people. The room were cozy and very clean. All of the staff was very kind and met every request we made above and beyond. I would recommend this hotel to a couple who is also looking for a homey / resort feel.

Excellent hotel

Posted Dec 4, 2017
Great villas, clean and modern bathrooms, comfortable beds, an extra crib was waiting for us in the room, the breakfasts are delicious and filling (our favorite is omelet with a side of gajo pinto, we even packed leftover pancakes and wafers for a later snack for kids), the hotel has 6 hot spring pools, with varying temperature, no need to go anywhere else and you can use them from 5 am to 11 pm. I just wish the weather was less rainy.

Do yourself a favor and stay here...

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Pros: Quiet, welcoming, well maintained and friendly all-around
Cons: On-site ice would be great, and the beds could've been more comfortable.
Location: The resort is located just outside of downtown Arenal and near so may "excursion" opportunities. We absolutely loved the location.
Set at the base of Volcan Arenal, this resort is a quiet, peaceful oasis in an area of adventure activity. We greatly enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to indulge us as we practiced our Spanish. We had great conversations in broken Spanglish with the front desk staff, the servers and the bartenders, and were offered the opportunity to ask questions about the local culture and customs. The grounds are impeccably maintained and tranquil, and everyone working on the property treated us with a friendly smile. They all seemed truly accommodating to our needs and schedule, and were more than willing to help set us up with the next day's adventures. I will add that we traveled in the low season, so experiences may differ during peak times, but I can only speak to our experience

Great gardens and cabins in La Fortuna

Posted Aug 23, 2017 on Hotels
This is a great gem of a hotel, Highly recommended for anyone staying in the La Fortuna area. Great breakfast, nice grounds, nice cabins, nice pools. Staff was always friendly and eager to help, and the area with the animals was just an added bonus. You get great views of the volcano (when it's not on a cloud cover) and you can easily get anywhere else in the area. The gardens and the properties small footprint is what you would expect in Costa Rica and this place delivers on all fronts. Highly recommend it to couples and family alike

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.
