Like so many others have already said, Silencio del Campo is a peaceful paradise. The rooms are clean and spacious (ours had 3 beds and still plenty of space). The gardens are beautiful with lots of wildlife (landscaping almost hides the monster hotel next door- you really don't notice it unless you're at the cold pool looking directly at it). The hot springs are awesome and we had them to ourselves most of the stay.
But what really made this stay special was the service. When we arrived we immediately wanted to try out the hot springs. We stepped out the door and it was raining (pretty typical). One of the staff was walking by with an umbrella and he just gave it to me and walked off into the rain! That night we made some cocktails in the room. We didn't have any ice and so I called the front desk to ask if there was an ice machine. A few minutes later the security guard showed up at our door with a bucket of ice!
If I make it to Arenal again the only thing I would change is add an extra day. Two nights was enough to see La Fortuna waterfall, spend the day at Tabacon, and relax at the hotel but I wish we had one more day to hike or horseback the trails at Arenal.
