The food was excellent - some of the best food we had in Costa Rica. The people were very gracious and were willing to make any food vegetarian. The thermal springs were very clean, nice, relaxing, and not crowded. We really liked that you could see birds in the tree while you were eating breakfast and lunch because they put... More

This was our first visit to CR and staying at the Hotel El Silencio del Campo was one of the highlights of our trip. The individual cabins made us feel very much at home. This is one of the great appeal of this property - privacy with knowledgeable staff and high level service. It is located a few km from... More

My husband I stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon and we loved it! It is a beautiful place with wonderful hot springs. We got a couples massage at the spa and it was very relaxing. The cabins are cozy and comfortable. We loved getting brownies and ice cream and the restaurant for dessert each night. We would definitely... More

This place was easy to find, had great service and clean rooms. We stayed in the family room that had 2 queens and a twin bed....perfect and economical for our family of 5. The room was very large and clean. We didn't have a view of the volcano but that was no big deal to us. The property is very... More

This is a great small property that offers personal service at a high level. It was a convenient location just a short inexpensive cab ride from town. They have a small restaurant on the property that serves a great breakfast and a reasonable dinner if you don't feel up to heading to town. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The... More

This place has cute and cozy cabins just down the street from Baldi hot springs, which offers the absolute opposite experience. Silencio del Campo has a small pool and smaller kiddie pool, a kid's playground, a small pond where ducks play, and a small farm with chickens, cows, and goats. There is also three separate hot spring pools, a jacuzzi... More

Our family of 6 (four kids ages 11-20) stayed in two cabins at Silencio del Campo, and we recommend it. We had a car and it was a great location for exploring La Fortuna and the Arenal region. It's on the way to Mistico Hanging Bridges and national park. Only a few minutes from the restaurants of La Fortuna, but... More

Our family, 3 generations from age 8 to age 78, stayed here in Aug. 2015 for five nights. We were looking for something that had good amenities but wasn't so fancy that we didn't get the local feeling of being in Costa Rica. Each family had their own little cabin so there was plenty of privacy. Having a rental car... More

Situated on beautiful, well kept grounds El Silencio had everything we wanted and needed. There are thermal pools, a large swimming pool, a restaurant and many inviting villas. The villas are nicely furnished with comfortable bedding and lots of room. The grounds are beautiful with lush foliage and magnificent birds. The staff is great. Eylin was always smiling and always... More
