Tilajari was so great -- the grounds are beautiful and feature tons of wildlife. Our room was gorgeous and offered a nice view of the river out back. The food at the restaurant was very good, and the service was fantastic. They also offer many great tours with fantastic tour guides. The only drawback is that it's pretty far from... More

We traveled to Costa Rica through Gate 1 Travel and they booked this resort on our behalf when we were visiting the area of La Fortuna and Arenal Volcano. This was our favourite resort from our entire trip! :) The resort was very calming, the staff were pleasant, the room was clean and the scenery was beautiful. They even offered... More

We traveled with Gate 1 and spent two nights at this destination. We got such a good deal on the package that we were somewhat skeptical of what the hotel's quality would end up being (too good to be true, right?), but were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Tilajari. There was a gated entrance so our cars... More

This is a great resort that has everything. The food was great. Great pool. Great wildlife. Only a half hour to Arenal Volcano. So you are away from all the busy of La Fortuna. The staff is great and helps out with any other needs.

But watch for transit police if you are traveling to the Pacific beaches. We were stopped for passing on a double line (just at the end ,when we came back in after passing with other cars and trucks on Route 1) and told the fine was $440 (true as of Mar 1, 2010) or we could settle now for -...

This was my first trip to Costa Rica so I really didn't know what to expect. I flew into San Jose, and my first thought was "OMG, what did I do?" I was not impressed to say the least. Fortunetly my second stop was at the Tilajari Resort!!! After about a three and a half hour drive from San Jose... More

My sister in law and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of Gate 1's fly and drive package. The grounds are lovely, well taken care of, with many of the plants marked. Our room was large, clean, and well equipped, located in a quiet area overlooking the river. We didn't hear any noise from the other rooms. A/C... More
