Once you've marvelled at your surroundings, your accommodation and the facilities, thinking that you must be dreaming, the staff and management just embrace you and you are part of the family. I travelled on my own but it was the same for couples too. All the staff at El Silencio are professional to the nth degree and their customer service first class but in a relaxing way that makes one feel at home. A fellow guest on the day of departure said she felt as though she was saying goodbye to her family and I knew exactly how she felt.
The lushness and beauty of the scenery cannot adequately be captured and you can walk endlessly through the acres and marvel at just about everything.
The food is wonderfully fresh - much of it local, enhanced by the herbs and spices grown in the grounds.
To wake up in the morning to birdsong and the rush of water from the nearby fast flowing stream was awesome and then to sit out on the verandah in a beautifully crafted rocking chair with a cup of hot Costa Rican coffee - indescribable . Then after a day of rafting or zip- lining through the canopy what better than to have jacuzzi in the privacy of your own bungalow - just pure bliss!
Emilio was knowledgeable in the 2hr,four elements walk;a positive coach with the zip- lining and entertaining company in the rafting;Jennifer offered a brilliant massage and facial at the spa; Alonso patience,excellent customer service and humour , Chef Carlos - what a cook and all lead by Arnay the Wonderful GM.

The hotel was excellent. But, it is difficult to get in or out of this hotel during the time people are going or coming out of work. The road should be 4 lanes instead of two. Other than that it is perfect.
