We are a family of 4(2 adults & kids ages 10, 16). We drove from Monteverde to La Fortuna. We stayed at El Silencio for 2 nights since we were unable to get reservations at Nayara Hotel for 4 nights. So we split our stay between El Silencio & Nayara. The check in here was smooth and the staff at the front desk was great. We had our welcome drinks and I was offered a free facial and I made an appointment right away. The free facial was great & very relaxing!
Grounds are beautiful and very clean but I was a little disappointed in the cabin that we stayed in. We stayed in cabin#24 which had a good volcano view but I think the room needs to be updated and the bathroom had some weird smell. I was slightly disappointed in their complimentary breakfast which now I might be comparing to Nayara which was phenomenal. It wasn't a buffet style but you can order one item from the menu which was omlette, rice, pancakes or toast. It is served with fruit platter and juice. I am a vegetarian so I ended up getting toast & butter and their coffee was just terrible. We chose to eat out for lunch & dinner since we wanted to explore the town. We had burritos & drinks one night by the thermal hot springs and that was great!
We really enjoyed their thermal hot springs and didn't feel the need to go to Tabacon Hot springs. If you just want the experience of hot springs the one on the property is pretty good. We went to see the Tabacon hot springs the next day to see if we wanted to buy tickets but we didn't think it was worth the money. But it's just an opinion since we took a glance at it and didn't actually experience it.
Eliomar at the front desk helped us in planning "Must Do's" and booked our ziplining and a couple other tours. He was just awesome! My kids loved the property and spent some time at the pool which wasn't too big but a decent size. There is a hotel built right in front which blocks some of the volcano view. Overall, its a great property for what you pay for and definitely great service.
