4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. It was nice to stay in a more "typical" location then some of the larger glitzy looking spas down the street. Two nights were the perfect amount of time. There are several small thermal pools and a really lovely spa. Location is excellent to activities. Positives: great for my teenagers and beautiful...

This is a small property, which I liked. It was extremely quiet, with about 24 nice sized cabins. I loved that our cabin had 3 beds. My daughter loved the farm (the farm provides milk, eggs, and cheese for the restaurant on site). If you awaken early (6-6:30am) you can help collect eggs and milk the cows. The hot springs... More

This hotel was INCREDIBLE! The hot springs here are unbelievable. Let me start with the room. Our room was very large and comfortable. Every day we were entertained with a new 'design' in our towels..nice touch! The grounds were so well kept, gorgous flowers and plants everywhere! The dining area at breakfast put fruit on sticks and the local beautiful... More

Before leaving for Costa Rica many of my friends raved about another Arenal hotel. However, after staying at El Silencio (and visiting my friends' over-crowded hotel) - I could not be happier with our choice. For an extremely reasonable price we got a lovely cabin that was perfect for our children - they each got their own bed. The kids... More

The grounds were beautiful! The room was clean and spacious. The hot springs were so relaxing. We didn't try any of the pricey hot springs in the area because the hot springs at the hotel were so wonderful. The spa was really special. My husband and I both got volcanic mud massages which I highly recommend! The breakfast was probably... More

THIS HOTEL WAS GREAT! We stayed here for 4 nights for our both wedding anniversary and I do not have anything negative to say about this hotel. The grounds were beautiful, private, and not crowded. The staff was very attentive and super friendly. The hot springs were wonderful. The restaurant was delicious for breakfast lunch and dinner. I think what... More

We stayed here in April 2015. family of three. On arrival staff were very attentive and helpful, it was by far the best hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica in this regard. My 11 year old daughter really loved the hot pools and quickly made friends with other kids there. I really enjoyed the pools too, they were very... More

It's the kind of place I don't want to review because I don't want everyone to know how good it is. Beautiful. Peaceful. Clean. Comfortable. Every single thing we wanted. It was perfect. Fantastic hot springs. Never crowded. Great poolside drinks. Very happy with the food. Everything was fantastic. We will go back here in a heartbeat.

This hotel is close to everything but secluded enough that you'll avoid the city feel if down town La Fortuna. Each room is its own cottage so you don't feel like you're on top of other travers--gives a nice sense of privacy. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful--they'll recommend and book tours for you and will arrange transportation for... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon for a few days. Silencio is wonderful! This is one of the few hotels that has real volcanic hot springs on site. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was very friendly. We stayed towards the back of the hotel which is closer to the hot springs. I had a volcanic facial treatment one... More
