Reviews for El Silencio Lodge & Spa
This place was beyond my expectations soo worth it! The food is better than any michelin/5 star restaurant Iâ€™ve been too! Service was incredible! Every night made bed with warmer! The excursions were awesome!! Did the twin waterfalls so magical definitely worth it! Would have hired a transfer from the airport though! We rented a car and anyone could do it but would have been nice to be driven a little too mountainous roads for me. But all the excursions they drove us! Massages were amazing! We will definitely come back for a relaxation get away! Loved that we felt like we were the only ones there! The way Iď¸Ź like to do a vacation!!

This place knows how to do everything right, down to the smallest detail. An often rainy area, the staff will walk you with umbrellas most places, park your car in the lower lot, clean your shoes, make you hot chocolate, light a huge fire in the stone fireplace, and warm up each of the suite's private jacuzzis. Victoria who runs the front office is incredible. The waterfalls on property are enormous, a very relaxing and comfortable place with incredible food and service. Make sure to arrive before dark if you're driving yourself, the road is challenging.

We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon here at the end of October. It was the perfect way to unwind after our wedding and enjoy being alone together. The suites are amazing (comfiest bed we've ever slept in) and so cozy with your own hot tub and deck. We loved that the suites have no tv/wifi so you can completely check out but then have access at the main lodge when need be. The meals were great. Staff was also top notch- Roberto welcomed us when we arrived and also took us on our horseback ride. We had a great couple of days there- highly recommend!
This resort is quite far from any city so we had to eat all meals in the restaurant there , buy I really loved the place. The grounds are huge- we took a 2 mile hike to a waterfall & didn't see any other people. Staff is great, food good. Only drawback that my friend pointed out is that there is no entertainment. She felt isolated. The rest of our group was happy to have drinks at happy hour, sit on our private veranda & enjoy the view. If you are not an introspective person, this may not be the place for you

We will be back. Went with my wife and 10 month old son. The staff was wonderful, the grounds were gorgeous, and the rooms were perfect. The level of service was unparalleled. Pure relaxation and immersion in nature. Pura Vida.
