We loved Siliencio. It was our first stop in CR and when we arrived they greeted us with a tropical fruit drink.....ahh, after the drive it was very much welcomed. The villas are beautifully simple and elegant and you immediately feel rested and in the midst of a calm and warming environment. The hot springs and pool are great, the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Silencio del Campo. Our cabin was great - very spacious, clean and all the facilities you could need. Good swimming pool, plus a thermal pool in the grounds which was great for relaxing in at the end of the day. But far and away the best thing about this hotel are the staff. Everyone,... More

We stayed two nights at El Silencio and we will be going back in the fall, now that we have discovered it. From check-in to checkout the staff was OUTSTANDING. The views of Arenal volcano from each bungalow, the sculpted landscaping, the privacy provided by the arrangement of the bungalows, the hot spring on the property and the spa services... More

What more can I say that EVERYONE else hasn't already said? Perfect place, perfect stay, excellent staff, beautiful grounds, great food. Eliomar is tremendous from the time you arrive to the moments after checkout. He is willing to do anything and advise on anything in the area and beyond. No request or change was too small or too large and... More

Though this review is long overdue, I would not be able to plan my next vacatioin without giving El SIlencio del Campo and Eliomar the utmost praise. Not only did this hotel have some of the most amazing grounds, including its own magnificent hot springs, but also the nicest, friendliest, most acommodating staff, including the owner and young woman at...

(4/13 - 16) Hotel Silencio del Campo (SDC) is what Costa Rica is all about. This was the 2nd of the 4 hotels we stayed in during our CR honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. The staff was very friendly - front desk, spa, restaurant they all treat you like family! We were instantly greeted with a smile and received... More

We got to stay 2 nights here. The place is very cute. You have little individual cabins. This place is owned by a costa rican that lives nearby, not a huge corporation, so don't expect branded anything. I think that was what was so refreshing. I have been at dives, 5 star resorts and everything in between. It rained the... More

Stayed here two nights in April, 2010. Wish we could have stayed longer; this place was fantastic. The grounds were beautifully manicured. The staff were friendly and helpful. The included breakfast at the onsite restaurant was excellent and really a terrific value for an included meal. The staff said that the hotel was very full while we were there but... More

We are a married couple with two children—aged 9 and 6. We stayed at El Silencio Del Campo for a couple of days in the first week of April, 2010. We were received in the cute and quaint outdoor lobby with welcome drinks. The concierge/receptionist offered me a free facial in their open air spa that evening. I jumped on... More
