El Silencio del Campo is our family's favourite getaway in La Fortuna. The family Casita is excellent: comfortable, private, fully equipped, top quality amenities and toiletries, and close to the farm animals which our children love. The thermal baths are designed with many options, hot and cold pools for a perfect thermal experience. The restaurant serves delicious food in a lovely atmosphere and great service. The breakfast, included in the rate, is amazing, more than you would expect: table service, not buffet. The gardens are gorgeous. The staff at this hotel deserve special mention for their professionalism, attentiveness, responsiveness and attention to detail.

El Silencio is well deserving of their top spot on Tripadvisor. It far exceeded our expectations. A tremendous value for the price paid. Truly top notch. The cabins are spacious with high ceiling and the sink is separate from the toilet and shower which functioned great for our family of 5. This was the only resort I could find that would accommodate all 5 of us in 1 room. They brought in a twin bed for our 3rd child which she loved. Large windows on 2 sides let in a lot of light and we enjoyed views of the beautiful grounds as well as the volcano from our front porch. The hot springs are excellent. 5 or 6 springs from large to small, private, well landscaped. The bartender was excellent and made frequent rounds to the springs so serve you. Drinks were delicious and well priced. The open air restaurant was excellent as well. We ate dinner there one night and sit down breakfast every morning. Our kids enjoyed the hot chocolate and koi pond. We also enjoyed the birds feeding on fruit. Service throughout was excellent. We also very much enjoyed the farm. My kids milked the cow, collected eggs and rode a horse. There is a large variety of animals to gaze at - cows, donkeys, horses, chickens, goat, sheep, etc. A couple of the cows had calves that were just days old. Location was perfect, just 5 - 10 minute drive to town and 20 min from most attractions. Highly highly recommend El Silencio for anyone, families, couples, honeymooners.

It doesn't get much better than this. When we were there it was not crowded at all, very quite and relaxing compare to some of the other resorts. The water was a perfect temperature and the staff was outstanding. Definitely will be back!

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel Our casita was well appointed and very clean. Woke up to the songs of myriad birds. The hotel has an adjacent working farm, so the restaurant is truly farm-to-table. Loved the landscaped grounds and hot springs. The staff were super friendly and helpful, especially Jen. We look forward to coming back!
