El Silencio del Campo or Royal Corin?

We (2 single females, late 30s/early 40s) will be traveling to Costa Rica in October. I believe we are down to choosing between El Silencio del Campo and Royal Corin. We were also considering Lost Iguna but I really wanted hot springs on site (my old tired mucles).

So what would everyone recommend? Is the Royal Corin too commercial? Would we get a more authentic costa rican experience at El Silencio? How are the beds at both places? How about food?

Any help is appreciated!

We LOVED El Silencio del Campo and for the following reasons:

1) The most comfortable bed I had ever slept in (better than my own. Seriously)

2) Restaurant on site. Food was yummy and at reasonable price

3) Only a few minutes to town

4) Hot springs with different water temperature. I enjoyed soaking in there and smelling the fragrance of flowers from the breeze

5) all the villas are facing the volcano. If sky is clear, grab a cup of coffee and sit on the front porch and enjoy the view!

6) Friendly and helpful staff

7) Spa!!!

check out their facebook page. Lots of pictures posted by travelers.
