I have been in this beautiful place several times, with my wife and friends and family, however last weekend Aug, 21 to Aug 23rd of 2015 I have decided to come back again, and as usual hotel is beautiful and peaceful, however I found the service has changed a lot to downgrade it, the breakfast was terrible, seems that they...

Our room at the Tilajari Hotel Resort had a fantastic view over the great San Carlos river. The green expanse at the back of the hotel leading down to the river was very pleasant. The staff are friendly, the food is good and the pool is a decent size, albeit unexpectedly slippery so be careful with kids! We used this... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed 4 night at the Tilajari hotel and i have nothing but good to says about this place, First the staff is very attentive and helpful, the hotel is situated outside the touristic area but they provide transport to every activity. The resort got a good amount of wildlife because is isolated and i really loved... More

While we had some trouble finding the hotel (Waze located the hotel some distance away, so we had some driving around to do to find it) once we found it we were absolutely delighted. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was eager to tell us about all the features of the hotel and the tour packages that they offered.... More

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights as part of a tour group. We had a Junior Suite with 2 queen beds, about 400 SF, plus a 50 SF porch. There was a second floor for rooms with a balcony. We had the furtherest room of the hotel, which was few minutes walk to the main areas. The furnishings... More

We had the opportunity to stay here through Gate 1 Promotions. This was my favorite out of the four hotels in the package. Our room had the view of the river and we could see some birds. It was also the closest to the butterfly garden! It was clean and very cute. The buffet breakfast was delicious and the waiters... More

This is an ex Country Club turned hotel, but holds a lot of the county club facilities, tennis, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym and a good size pool. Again staff very friendly and service superb. The barwoman made great cocktails, try Kaipitica, made with local spirit, she gave me the recipe and I made one with her instruction. The bar area was... More

When I think of Costa Rica, I imagine lots of trees, plants, flowers, birds, butterflies and a sense of remoteness. This is what you find at the Tilajari Resort without sacrificing the comforts we are used to such as air conditioning, a restaurant, gift shop, etc. When typing in the location of the gps unit, there are 2 addresses, it...

This is quite a large hotel complex with a plethora of facilities for your entertainment - 3 pools and a jacuzzi, a sauna, a gym, tennis courts (outdoor and indoor) and a soccer field, horse stables and a butterfly garden. Rooms are in blocks with 1 up and 1 down. We had room 601, an upper room with a balcony... More

The very BEST cuisine we ran across in nine happy days in Costa Rica. The resort offers many activities from horseback riding to massages, the usual litany of resort stuff. The happy surprise was the food. We had been told "just order sea bass". The whole menu is quality but the sea bass dishes warrant high praise. There are about... More
