El Silencio Resort & Spa features an environmentally-immersed spa, organic cuisine and deluxe meditation rituals - all with the purpose to renew and re-energize its guests.

The location is pristine and staff so courteous and truly interested in us. Knew my name and my wife's. Food and restaurant outstanding. So very comfortable lodge and individual cabin/mini lodge. Butterfly garden lifelong memory. Hikes gorgeous and went for 4 hr horseback ride into the valley-horses are absolutely loved and well taken care of, and guide Danny and horseman Johnny careful and knowledgeable. William offered so many options for activities. Martin and team at restaurant masters of making you feel special. We will return for sure. Only 1.75 hours from SJO, and airport is clean and safe. Highly recommend.

The moment you walk into El Silencio Lodge and Spa you will be amazed at the gorgeous lobby and captivating views. You are surrounded by lush rainforest and greeted by the friendly staff. Oriel our bartender and waiter was extremely friendly and made our three night stay even more pleasant. The rapelling and zip lining located on the property is a must! Take the painting class and coffee tasting with Ronald and also wake for Eduardo, another friendly bartender. You won't be disappointed!

Its always worth a question, whats the real soul and highlight of the place you just visited.. i will try to catch this in a few words.. silence, pease and relaxiation must be the key words that cover everything from arrival where your private concierge explain everything and offer full assistance to your needs. The place by it self is surrounded by water and the silent noice that comes along.. the small bungalows offers private outdoor spa.. a bliss.. Enjoy time, perfect service and nature.. you will not get disappointed

Stayed for three nights in July with the family during the rainy season, so weather did not come as a surprise. Location is fabulous and the two walks on the property are well worth doing (one is a 2 hour round-trip to the waterfalls; the other half that but well worth it for the hummingbird garden) so you can see everything in a day if you happen to get good weather. Early morning bird watching well worth doing but other than that little wildlife to see. Really nothing else to do here unless you're into horses, so I would not stay for more than three nights. No gym or DVD players in rooms. No accessible local attractions or walks off-property. Rooms/ chalets are large and very comfortable, although they lack air conditioning. This is a problem; not so much because you want to be colder (if anything the rooms are too chilly at this time of year) but because of the pervasive dampness. Hang anything out to dry that has been soaked in a rain shower and it will be no drier in the morning than when you left it out. Unpacked clothes hung up in the wardrobes feel slightly damp in the morning. Rooms badly need aircon or dehumidifiers. Restaurant food is expensive and very average by Costa Rican standards although service is charming and conscientious. I understand that El Silencio wants to keep its eco-footprint as small as possible, but it does need some investment. It is a bit of a pilgrimage to get to this place and guests need a little more to look forward to on their arriva.
