Stayed 2 days in cottage 12 during first week of Feb 2012. Grounds are immaculate with beautiful flowers and tropical plants. Staff are courteous and professional. Cottages are very roomy with two queen beds and plenty of open space. Each has large windows that open to view of Arenal volcano on front and gardens in back. Each also has small patio in front with table/chairs for 4. It's a great place to relax and read, snack, or just chill. WiFi works well. Facility is very serene and low key. Hard to tell how many guests were there as it is so quiet. I'd estimate maybe half of cottages were occupied. Visited hot springs 4-5 times and usually had springs to ourselves. There were two other couples with us at springs on two occasions. Hot spring temperature varied from mid 80's (during day) to 100+ each night which worked really well for us. Guests are primarily more mature couples with some newlyweds and a couple of small families. Location a mile or two outside of lively La Fortuna on main road which nearly circles Arenal making it central to all local activities. We had a rental car and drove up from San Jose. Having car allowed us to explore area and do lots of activities in two days while spending considerable time relaxing at El Silencio. Recommend Ecoglide zipline (about 500m down street from El Silencio) as well as La Fortuna waterfall (wear suit and swim in the falls pool!), and hanging bridges.
