Before our visit to Costa Rica I eagerly read every TripAdvisor review as it appeared, trying to determine what Silencio del Campo was really like. And now I know. We stayed at Silencio del Campo March 9th through the 12th. You can look at the other reviews to hear what people thought. I will review the reviews. I agree with those who said: the grounds were more beautiful than pictured, the rooms are large and clean, the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the hot springs were amazing, the hotel staff was friendly, and the Royal Corin nearby did not obstruct the view. I don’t agree with anyone who reported a poor Internet connection. I facetimed a friend in the states, walking all around the grounds from the restaurant back to the hot springs, and retained the connection throughout. I agree with those who said the lighting in the rooms is poor, water pressure in shower weak, and water temperature in lukewarm. We got a couples massage’ and are split on the review. My husband liked his, mine was just okay. However, the complementary facial was terrific. The reviewer who recommended bringing a clock is correct. You can get a wake-up call, but we would have liked a clock in the room. One bit of advice, Silencio del Campo is in a rainforest so it is very damp, even when it is not raining. Bathing suits did not dry regardless of where we hung them, so bring more than one if you want a dry suit each day. My husband said Silencio del Campo is like a Consumer Reports best buy. I agree. You get a wonderful product, at a fair price, with the added bonus of the hot springs.
