“Wonder Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in March 2013 on an independent tour of Costa Rica. The cabins are attractive, modern and spacious with a TV, fridge and large comfortable bed. The grounds are lovely and spacious. The staff was helpful and friendly. There is excellent birding on the lower property early. There is a pool and 4 hots springs/Jacuzzis-no extra charge - quite delightful with a full service bar. The floor going down to the hot springs is very slippery and my wife fell and hurt her leg..beware! Tours booked at the front desk cost nearly twice as much than if you call direct. Ask for a quite unit is the back away from the road and the towering ugly multi-story noisy hotel right next door that looks like it belongs in La Vagas.

Room Tip: Ask for a quite unit is the back away from the road.

We loved our stay at El Silencio. The cabins are extremely comfortable, the hot springs are so relaxing, the grounds are quiet and beautiful and there are great views of the volcano from every cabin. We are bird watchers and we spend many hours watching birds on site. The complimentary mud facial was heavenly.

The real stand-out at El Silensio was the staff. They were friendly and extremely helpful, arranging tours and activities and recommending the best spots for birding. But they truly went above and beyond when we found ourselves stranded after a reservation at another hotel fell through. The wonderful staff spent more than one hour on the phone calling hotels in Monte Verde and Santa Elena to find us an alternative and ensure that we were taken care of. Amazing! Thank you El Silencio.

The grounds were beautiful with flowers and paths. I loved the hot springs, there were several setup up and were more private. Water was nice an warm. Great views of Arenal. Close enough to La Fortuna. Rooms were comfortable. Beds were a little on the stiff side
Breakfast was basic and good. Omlet, pancakes, rice dish was available for choices.

I think we paid a little over $200 per night for four people.

We stayed at El Silencio during our four days in Arenal. We had a wonderful time at this accomodation. Private villas were layed out similar to a hotel room but much better. Beds were large and comfortable, bathroom was bright and clean, nice sink/mirror area. The grounds were well kept with many trees, birds, lizards, flowers, etc on hand. Jose was the bartender while we were there, he was a sweet man who provided excellent service with a smile. There were several small hot springs to choose from ranging in temperature, some even had a small seating area near them, making it a great place to relax with a drink after a day of adventure in Arenal. Breakfast had five options - pancakes were delicious. All breakfasts were served with fresh fruit and juice to start. Front desk agents were very helpful with booking local tours/day trips. Girls were given free facial (special at the time) in the onsite spa, amazing service. Overall, enjoyed our stay very much.

One of the best places ever! Beautiful grounds...spacious luxurious cottages....hot springs. The rooms were gorgeous, comfortable, and spacious. The free breakfast was delicious and the service was phenomenal. Hot springs were so beautiful, with multiple pools and varying temperatures. We opted to eat in town because we wanted to explore a bit, but heard that the food there was excellent. The town is a short drive away, with lots of good restaurants and shops. We were able to book our excursions from the hotel, and the staff was very accommodating. We highly recommend booking a volcano hike with Johnny, one of the waiters from our breakfast. He knows his stuff, was a fantastic affordable guide, and took plenty of pictures for us!! Cannot say enough about him, he was great.

We spent 3 nights at El Silencio del Campo based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor. Well, we were delighted. This is a small hotel with about 25 cabins. The cabins are of great size and very nice. The cabins were nicely decorated. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. Each room has a view of the Arena volcano. The Hot Springs are truly spectacular. We went there everynight and this was just fantastic. This is so nicely done... The restaurant is small but the fiod they serve is very good. Breakfast, included with the room price is also very good. Some people complained in the reviews about quantity but we disagree. There is just enough food and this is delicious (the freshly squeezed orange juice was great). All people in the hotel were very nice and friendly. Overall, GREAT stay in all key respects. Again, the hot springs are fantastic. We went to another hotel (Hilton Papagayo) before El Silencio del Campo and El Silencio was much better!
