We loved our stay here! When we arrived at Hotel El Silencio Del Campo, we were welcomed by the reception with 4 frozen fruity drinks! After the hot drive in from San Jose, it was one of those times, where you just couldn’t imagine anything tasting better! I took advantage of their free facial they offer (for those who might also want to take advantage of this, know you have to have the facial done on the day of your arrival or the very next day). I chose to have it that very evening, and wow, what a welcome to paradise!
Breakfast was included in our stay and they offered about 6 options (which were constant) throughout our stay. Between the four of us, we tried everything on the menu, and found it all to be wonderfully and deliciously prepared. We couldn’t have asked for more, including our super great waiter, Junior. He was so attentive and kind. I had made up travel journals for our daughters to work on during our trip, and for my oldest daughter included a “Be a Reporter” section were she had a list of questions to ask about Costa Rica (i.e. What three colors are in the Costa Rican flag?) to someone we encountered during our day. Junior was eager each morning to answer her questions about his home. He was a true example of wonderful hospitality.
We went to the hot springs (some cold, some warm, and some hot) at the hotel every night we were there – the children love swimming, and for all of us it was a great way to relax from our full day’s adventure, and take in the night time sounds and sights (keep your eyes peeled for the fireflies).
We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and indeed hope we get the chance to return someday! After two different stays in La Fortuna I am still waiting to see the volcano completely unobstructed, without the clouds! :)
