I had a lovely, well-appointed room with a balcony overlooking some of the extensive gardens and the San Carlos River. Every time I stepped out of my room, I met some of the local wildlife - iguanas, squirrels, a sloth in a tree, beautiful birds and even a crocodile on the river bank! Every morning the staff put out bananas... More

We stayed here for 7 nights during our 3 week stay in Costa Rica. It is well located for travel to the many surrounding attractions particularly in the Aranal volcano area. The grounds are very extensive with the substatial Tarcoles river running along one side. Much wildlife including sloths, iguanas, lizards and crocodiles (on the far river bank) can be... More

It was a 10 days meeting done on this hotel and it was quite nice to spend there among the nature and the closeness to animals, sloths, iguanas and birds all over the place. Is really a way of getting contact with nature and serenity. Food is really good, especially breakfasts. Two bad things was that we ran off of... More

Wherever you look there are iguanas - throughout the grounds, climbing trees, on the river bank, even lazing alongside the jacuzzi or climbing onto your balcony. They seem totally at ease with visitors but whether guests appreciate being so close to iguanas is another matter - especially when some of them may be up to five feet in length! However,... More

I stayed here with my mom and my sister in January. We purchased an all inclusive package which was extremely worthy. We loved every bit of the hotel... from the nature, the birds to the rooms that were extremely comfortable. We laid by the pool just enjoying the day and letting the time pass by. The only reason why I... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. What I found most amazing about this hotel resort is that the grounds are absolutely fabulous. We walked around it for hours. There are so many cool plants, trees, birds, animals and insects to check out, you will be amazed. There was even a sloth in a small tree 100 feet from... More

First, I recommend having a car if you stay here, because there is nothing close around it. Most everything is a 30 to 40 minute drive away. I have been to the Tilajari a couple of times. We had our wedding there two years ago, and the event planning was great! It was a beautiful wedding and all my family... More

Stayed here two nights and just couldn't get excited about the experience. It's a large place with lots of rooms, clean and with a nice staff. The grounds are expansive with some parts being very pretty. But, some parts like the butterfly garden showed a singular lack of care. Dining area is large to accommodate tours and does a decent...

The hotel is about 20 minutes from the Arenal Volcano and is in a nice quiet location. I really wanted to like this hotel but just couldn't because I found it impossible to sleep. If you like a super firm mattress than this is the hotel for you. The mattress is the hardest I've ever encountered and the air conditioner... More
