We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were trying to decide between this hotel and The Lost Iguana. We decided on El Silencio because it seemed more family-friendly. Having said that, I think it would be a great choice for couples too because the cabins are secluded. We felt very private. The rooms were exceptionally clean. Breakfast starts at 7am if I remember correctly, but we needed to leave by 7:15 to get to our tour - the front desk manager said it was no problem and just to show up at 6:30 or so and we would be served promptly, which we were. Delicious, large breakfasts. We ate both nights at the hotel because the first night was so good! Food and service. Everyone was happy after a long day touring to go relax in the hot springs, then eat dinner and enjoy the springs some more before bed. As for the monster hotel next door, yes it's ugly, but we just laughed at it. It did not distract from our experience at all - it doesn't block the sun or the volcano, it's to the side. On the other side of the hotel is an empty field with some horses and beautiful grounds are all around you. The landscaping is beautiful - we even saw a Toucan land in a tree above us. We had a lot of cloud coverage but on the last day had a gorgeous view of the volcano right in front of us from the hotel. When we go back, we'll stay here.
