“Loved the resort, location, and La Fortuna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

Date of stay: Feb 9th – 11th
Weather: sunny and scattered clouds
Room 7
Pros: Breakfast, hot spring pool, grounds, front desk staff, great landscaping and volcano view, cleaning staff, and room(not the best, but very comfortable for the price)

Highly Recommended Activities in order of rating:

Munado Adventure Zip Lining (safe, fun guide, $62/person, great views)
Arenal Hanging Bridges (no guide needed, $25/person, great views (waterfall , volcano, and wildlife)
Free Hot Springs near Tabicon ( free!, heated river with wading pools- didn't want to leave)
Arenal 1968 ($10, okay enjoyment nothing spectacular) If I could redo it I would have hiked the LaFortuna falls and Cerro Chato

What a great place to stay. Even though the volcano was covered in clouds the entire time, we still enjoyed everything about our stay. (And we did have a wonderful, clear view of the volcano on the drive to La Fortuna, so we didn't feel we were missing too much.) The room/cabin was comfortable and spacious. We had most of our meals in town, but the breakfast at the hotel restaurant each day was tasty and plentiful. Staff were helpful and friendly. And the spa--we loved it. There were three of us, and we each went for at least one treatment (I had two). Some reviewers have advised getting a cabin back from the main road. And while this is probably a good idea, you don't need to be all the way at the back of the property to be shielded from road noise. We were about halfway back, or maybe even less, and we had no issue with road noise at all--and we would have noticed if there had been noise. I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would quickly recommend El Silencio del Campo to others. If you're driving from the Monteverde area, keep a sharp eye open a few miles before you get to town. The hotel is just before an ugly monstrosity of a tourist hotel on the left, and you could easily miss it as you gape at the tastelessness of its neighbor. Once you are inside the grounds, though, you are in another world.

I have recently returned from my trip in Costa Rica, this hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed in, in terms of the rooms and breakfast.

The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, the hot springs were a nice relaxing way to spend the evenings after a day of zip lining and walking in the national park.

As with all of the places we stayed at the staff were extremely nice and helpful.

I would definately recommned this to anyone who will be staying in Arenal

Stayed 2 days in cottage 12 during first week of Feb 2012. Grounds are immaculate with beautiful flowers and tropical plants. Staff are courteous and professional. Cottages are very roomy with two queen beds and plenty of open space. Each has large windows that open to view of Arenal volcano on front and gardens in back. Each also has small patio in front with table/chairs for 4. It's a great place to relax and read, snack, or just chill. WiFi works well. Facility is very serene and low key. Hard to tell how many guests were there as it is so quiet. I'd estimate maybe half of cottages were occupied. Visited hot springs 4-5 times and usually had springs to ourselves. There were two other couples with us at springs on two occasions. Hot spring temperature varied from mid 80's (during day) to 100+ each night which worked really well for us. Guests are primarily more mature couples with some newlyweds and a couple of small families. Location a mile or two outside of lively La Fortuna on main road which nearly circles Arenal making it central to all local activities. We had a rental car and drove up from San Jose. Having car allowed us to explore area and do lots of activities in two days while spending considerable time relaxing at El Silencio. Recommend Ecoglide zipline (about 500m down street from El Silencio) as well as La Fortuna waterfall (wear suit and swim in the falls pool!), and hanging bridges.

We stayed for three nights in January and were impressed with the beautiful grounds. Breakfast was very nice and it was a treat to see all the birds. You get an awesome view of the volcano. The hotsprings are relaxing and nice. The only negative is that they really need to get better lounge chairs by the pool and hot springs. They were the most uncomfortable chairs!!!

We stayed 2 nights in January, 2012. It's even prettier than pictured on the website. It was easy to find (even with typical Costa Rica directions of: "continue on the main road 5 minutes past the center of town toward the volcano"). Each separate villa has a high ceiling and is spacious, quiet & clean, with an outdoor sitting area. The villas are separated by walkways and lush flowering trees and plants. There are separate small parking areas for every few villas, so we didn't need to take our bags far. Outside the open-air restaurant, the owner's pet parrot sits on a perch, and pieces of papaya are set on tree branches to attract a variety of colorful birds. There's a swimming pool and jacuzzi that are both a bit cool (probably nice if the weather is hot), but the large, thermal pool is phenomenal. It's fed by the volcano-heated Tabacon River which is about 105 F. They empty the pool each 3 days, clean and re-fill it, so it's hottest on the first of the 3 days, but wonderful anytime. The hot waterfall gives a wonderful shoulder massage. Breakfast is included and is a choice of 4 things, after a plate of sliced fruit and a glass of juice. We also had lunch there once and dinner twice, and everything was good. The hotel scheduled our Zip Line with Sky Trek/Tram and gave us a 6% discount from the attraction's printed price. It's a cable car up the hill ("tram"), and 8 zip lines down, after the 2 practice ones ("trek"). It's also possible to pay extra for the "walk." The operation felt very professional and safe. We'd go back to this hotel in a heartbeat.
