We stayed here 2 nights and enjoyed it greatly. The hotel rooms are older, but still nice. The scenery is beautiful here, it's very secluded. The breakfast was wonderful! The tours we booked there were great and well worth the money. The one dinner we ate there was very tasty. We used the water provided in the lobby the whole... More

The hotel rooms are small old fashion, the bathrooms are old . located very far from La Fortuna. There is nothing to do at night. The dining room and the pool are far from the rooms. The dining room is full of flies. you can hear the cars on the road near by

I have been to Tilajari on two occasions and I loveeee it. The food is awesome although I missed the beacon from Bosque del Mar. I eat the Tilajari hamburger twice and loved it the New York Steak was great as well. I would have liked to watch Nickelodeon in english as opposed to spanish. The butterfly farm is great... More

Just got back from 10 day vacation booked through Gate 1 travel. This place was the best. Crocodiles in the river outside our room, a free butterfly enclosure, beautful grounds, iguanas, excellent breakfast buffet with many choices, great pool and hot tub and geared towards customer service. Arenal is a bit of a drive, 45 min, but if you want... More

The Tilajari is a little oasis in the hustle and bustle of the Muelle San Carlos region in Costa Rica. There are tennis courts, an inviting swimming pool and an excellent restaurant on the banks of the placid San Carlos river.

We felt fortunate to have been upgraded by Gate 1 which had booked the room for us, and then we received a room upgrade upon arrival. Our room, located in building 1, was comfortable, nicely decorated, and had a balcony with a great view of the river. We enjoyed several of the features of the resort -- a lovely outdoor... More

Nice, quiet, secluded, relaxing setting. Rooms were nice size w A/C and beds were very comfortable. Food was above average. Pool area was great even though heater for hot tub wasn't working. One free computer at front desk for internet/e-mail. All staff were courteous and helpful. This was the only place we saw Iguanas - and they were everywhere -... More

We booked the 'honeymoon' package at this hotel for 2 nights and we enjoyed every minute of it! In our 2 days we took in 2 tours, lots of meals and enjoyed their pool. The package we booked included all of our meals at their restaurant, breakfast was buffet style with quite a few options including an omelette/egg station. Lunch... More

Stayed overnight after a long journey. The room was spacious but a little worn and dark. The shower was basic and the bathroom just about adequate. We were at the resort with a tour group and were offered only buffet catering of generous proportions but not of culinary note. The best points here are the grounds running along the river,... More

We (me an my girlfriend) booked three nights here. We were given a room on the second floor of the building where the airconditionings are on the roof. They have a noise problem with the aircons on the second floor, they vibrate so loudly that it would be impossible for anyone to sleep there. We explicitly asked for a quiet... More
