Relaxing and wonderful
My family of 4 began our vacation to CR at El Silencio. We did the drive to the resort from the airport on our own. It took about 1 hour and 45 min and wasn't that bad. From the time we arrived to the time we left we felt the service was fantastic. The staff went out of their way to make our visit the best it could be. Their attention to detail was first rate. The entire waitstaff in the restaurant knew our names after our first visit. Jaun Carlos was especially welcoming and we loved seeing him each day at the restaurant. We did two onsite activities through the resort. These included zipline/rappelling with Brain and Nelson. Both made the activity fun and were great guides. The second activity was the longer hike to the Los Gemlos waterfalls. This was a real treat to hike with Emilio who knew all the birds, trees, reptiles to point out to us. He was patient with out family and excellent to have as our guide. Finally a note about the office and housekeeping staff. These people were always very friendly and worked with us whenever we asked. So many small things that they did each day made our visit so much more enjoyable. Some examples are the fresh fruit juice left at our door each morning, or the turn down service that came each night while we were at dinner. Thank you all so much. This was a great to begin our trip to costa rica
A lovely stay
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our Costa Rican adventure.It was quite remote so therefore very quiet and private. The lodge was beautiful and had top quality everything. The hot tub was lovely, especially on a very wet afternoon. The staff were all helpful and friendly and the grounds were very well maintained. The spa facilities were gorgeous and thoroughly enjoyed a massage there. All in all a very nice stay.
An Amazingly Wonderful Experience
This resort should be named El Silencio Perfecto, it really is that good. As a family of 5 from the UK we loved every minute. There are so many little touches of thoughtfulness to mention. Wonderful staff included Bryan who took us to the waterfall and was a hugely knowledgeable guide, Isaac who took us for a really fun cookery class, as well as Alejandro, Juan Carlos and Mario plus other great waiting staff, reception staff and drivers for whom nothing was ever too much trouble. If an experience could encapsulate Pura Vida then this was it. We look forward to one day enjoying your hospitality again. Hasta luego.
An incredible and unique experience high above the clouds
My family and I just finished a wonderful and relaxing vacation in Costa Rica at the El Silencio Lodge. Not only were the surroundings beautiful, but the staff was extraordinarily kind and helpful throughout our stay. At the restaurant, Martin and Alejandro took excellent care of us serving absolutely delicious food. Kenneth helped my daughtyer paint an oxcart wheel and taught me how to zipline over the canopy of the valley. Bryan took our family on an amazing horseback ride through a nearby farm with some challenging trails up and down hills and across creeks. My daughter took to it like a champ and never wanted to dismount Tito, her pony. The hummingbirds, waterfalls, and hiking trails kept us plenty busy but completely relaxed at the same time. I couldn't recommend El Silencio more.
Great location, beautiful grounds, nice design, excellent trails, fun activities, wonderful and enthusiastic staff, good food, all in all a superb hotel in Costa Rica that offers something to everyone. I’m sure i’m Forgetting somebody, but Victoria, Juan, Martin, Mario, Alejandro, Brian, Kenneth, and many others were really friendly, efficient, and so happy to share their knowledge of Costa Rica. Also, the spa is lovely and Gabriela’s massage was fantastic!!
