Of those choices, Silencio del Campo is most popular. You should look at Los Lagos too; very popular with young families.

For a wonderful, small and authentic feel I'd go with Silencio del Campo. It's just all around great, owned by a local family, has hot springs on site and the cabinas are nice with beautiful grounds. Much more convenient than Leaves and Lizards, but I've stayed neither there or Kokoro.

Los Lagos is also a nice property, more sprawling with many more rooms but nice grounds, lots of things on site for families and great pools.

Thank you all so much. I could not sleep last night worrying over my choices and Los Lagos came up as a possibility - they have a room for us and I think I will book there since it came up several times.
I will report when I get back!
