“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

My family and sisters family spent 5 days at Silencio del Campo and fun was had by all. Although the facility is spread out and very quite there was enough to keep even young teenagers happy. The cabin are wonderful, clean, quite, and well cared for. The employees are wonderful and very helpful. Jose the bartender was very pleasent and welocoming.

Our family of 4 spent 3 nights and very much enjoyed the grounds, the farm, and especially the hot springs. Our AC unit didn't work well, which made me wonder why (for being eco-friendly) they didn't have any fans? This was only a problem during the day since the evenings always cooled off nicely, but when one family member got sick, the room was unbearable hot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room further away from the road. We were in #3 and the noise from the highway often disru...

This was our first trip to costa rica and we fell in love with this place. We are already planning to go back again!! Bungalows are clean, spacious, and comfortable. They have a small refrigerator and a coffee maker. All staff was extremely friendly and we saw nothing but smiles during our entire stay, especially Jose the bartender and Maria the receptionist. The restaurant has great food at reasonable prices. A taxi to town is about $8 one way. We only went to buy souvenirs and while we were there we ate at soda viquez, but I thought the food at the hotel restaurant was way better and the atmosphere is better as well. The hotel grounds are beautiful and so is the spa. My husband and I did a couple's massage and it was great. We felt so relaxed with the sound of nature. The hot springs were amazing and we almost always had them to ourselves. The big one had hotter water than tabacon!! I would highly recommend anyone who wants to relax and be surrounded by nature and great staff to stay at silencio del campo!!

This is the only place to stay near Arenal volcano!
The place is extremely comfy
The employees are extremely helpful and their breakfast is the best. The rooms are very clean and these are bungalows.
Each has a patio where you can enjoy the scenic beauty around you while enjoying coffee or drinks.
The hot tubs are the place to relax. Several hot tubs are there

The staff is what makes this Hotel a great place to stay! My sister and I stayed at the Hotel El Silencio del Campo with our families on recommendation from another family in our town. The hotel made everyone of us (ages 10-54) feel comfortable and relaxed. The property is clean and safe (the kids can walk to the hot springs, snack bar, pool and restaurant by themselves feeling completely independent). The staff helped us to book our day trips and cabs/vans for rides into La Fortuna for evening meals. The staff always had a friendly good morning for us (even as we straggled into breakfast over time) and welcomed us back from our day tours with a smile!! The bonus was the view from the hotel which allows you to keep an eye on the volcano- the visual that drew us to the area!

Really really nice place just outside of downtown La Fortuna. Clean, comfortable and a good price that includes a nice breakfast and their own hot springs. Local hot springs (Tabacon, Baldi, etc.) costs approx. $50-$80 for a foreign tourist to use.

We stayed for four nights in one of the spacious bungalows and really loved our stay. The breakfast each morning was very good and we had dinner at the restaurant the first night and had a very good meal. Service was very attentive. We had a perfect view of the volcano from our patio - on our last day we had a great view of the volcano as it was a clear day! We definitely enjoyed the hot springs after our daily adventures - a great way to relax. There is a bar at the hot springs and the bartender was always ready to prepare great tasting smoothies. The front desk staff were very helpful in helping to arrange outings. Would definitely return!
