All around great hotel: service, rooms, location, pool, hot springs and especially the grounds (amazing flowers everywhere).
Elio at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly...he provided great assistance prior to my arrival and was eager to assist during the stay. Not sure what's up with Alberto but he's a bit of an Eyore and got a bit snippy under stress.
The hot springs on the property are fantastic, we were so blissed out at Sliencio, we didn't find it necessary to check out any of the other local hot springs spots. The pool is really nice too, awesome to lounge poolside staring up at the volcano.
Only criticism of this hotel is that they make you select a time for breakfast, which is somewhat counter-intuitive to those on vacation and wanting to get away from a schedule.
I did a spa service (massage & facial) and thought both were so-so...the spa location itself is amazing though: on a platform in the garden, open-air and looking out over a gorgeous hillside. The service itself was mediocre.
Would definitely recommend for those seeking a relaxing, tranquil environment in a very beautiful spot.
