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.

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

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

Came here after the Monteverde lodge and gardens so everything got compared to them. The staff wasn't as warm and friendly here. The room setup was nice. We were able to arrange all of our belongings so they were organized and easy to use. The room was air conditioned which was greatly appreciated. We had a balcony that overlooked the... More
