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

Very nice four night stay. Room was large clean and comfortable with terrace overlooking Rio San Carlos. The staff is very serviceorientated especially in the restaurant. The food is great as are the drinks. Breakfast is plentiful for both American and local tastes. The bar area is a pleasant place to relax and watch the birds and iguanas. Day trips... More

I stayed here for 7 nights only last week. I can thoroughly recommend the hotel. It is in such a beautiful setting with abundant wildlife all around. There are many beautiful birds, crocodiles, sloths and iguanas living around the complex. The staff are excellent both friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. The Tilajari is a distance from... More

We spent 1 night here on a Backroads trip. It was my least favorite of the hotels, but that puts it against some very fine places. It is a big place, with lots of families vacationing. The room was large with a good bathroom, but 2 of us commented on the sheets being rough (on our sunburned bodies). There is... More

I recommend this hotel if you like beautiful grounds, good food and very good service. I particularly liked the abundant fauna that once included four iguanas visible simultaneously. The only downside is that it is very far from La Fortuna and getting out requires an expensive taxi ride. Although the hotel is not super-modern, its positives far outweigh the negatives.

This hotel is very dated and not at all what the reviews portray. "Luxury at the front of its mind", "beautiful location". . . It is 40 minutes from Fortunas and all of the attractions that we were interested in visiting in the area. The rooms were dated and could not in any way be described as luxurious. We had... More
