My two sisters and I (ages 36-22) stayed for 3 nights at El Silencio del Campo at the end of a 10 day trip through Nicaragua and Costa Rica in August 2013. We loved the town of La Fortuna were not disappointed in any way by El Silencio. The room (bungalow #12) had direct views from its front door of Volcan Arenal. That in itself was spectacular. The rooms are private, free-standing bungalows each with a private patio area. Our room was very large and clean; we loved how they left animal shaped towels on the bed every day. Added to the views were the amazing grounds - it is like a private oasis, very quiet (where we were towards the back of the property) and surrounded by beautifully manicured tropical plants that lure many types of birds (hummingbirds!). We went in the hot springs every day at least once (if not more than once) and found them to be very well maintained and relaxing. The hotel is very close to one of the public hot springs in town and compared to the line-up of cars and the crowds that would have been associated with that, we often found ourselves completely alone in the various pools. Breakfast was delicious and dinner was quite good as well on the night that we tried it. They serve eggs sourced from the farm directly on the property. The hotel was offering a free volcanic mud facial to guests when we visited. I thought the treatment and the grounds of the spa were great as well. Last positive comment was the service - we were leaving very early on our last morning planning to be on the road before breakfast would be served. When the front desk learned of this they prepared a to go breakfast for us of fresh fruits and breads for us to take on the road. Such a great last touch to a wonderful stay. I highly recommend this hotel.
