4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here in March, 2015. The rooms were very clean and comfortable for our family of 4 (2 Adults & 2 Teens). The views of the volcano were pretty spectacular (especially when the clouds cleared) and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hot springs are a nice relaxing way to end a day of sightseeing, ziplining... More

Wonderful little bungalows. The place has a great restaurant, nice pools, good staff, The rooms are quiet and nature surrounds this place. It is right under the volcano so if the volcano ever becomes active again this would be a great place to view the lava flows.

The cabins are very nice and we found our entire stay completely relaxing. Breakfast was good and my daughter and I enjoyed the gallo pinto. The staff here, and pretty much everyone... More

My family enjoyed our 2 night stay at El Silencio. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was pretty good. Our favorite part, however, was the hot springs. My family absolutely loved the hotel's hot springs and pools. It was so nice to relax in them after a day of hiking or a day of fishing on Lake Arenal.

Silencio del campo hotel, combines nice rooms with their own thermal springs and not too far from La Fortuna town n case you would like to taste local cuisine, it is a place where no other hotels are located right next to it, it is silence, rooms not to close main road

Everyone was so friendly at El Silencio. It was quiet in mid-May and very lush. The thermal pools are great and since it was low season, not at all crowded. We milked the cows and enjoyed the warm milk Manuel gave us straight from the cow. The Costa Rican food was delicious and knowing the milk, cheese, eggs and fish... More
