A charming plantation-style hotel set in glorious grounds. It was just a stopover but if we were planning our trip again would definitely stayed longer. Our dinner was the best I had in Costa Rica, and that is saying something as we found the quality of cuisine pretty high all over. The bird life was impressive and the adjacent farm/ranch... More

The approach is grand up a long avenue of royal palms. The building is grand. But the welcome was indifferent and many details screamed 'a general manager needs to kick backsides'. Lots of details - paintwork was marked and crumbling, doors around the handles were filthy, and outside the grounds badly needed attention - a lovely pergola had had no... More

Great gardens and grounds, with interesting views from the Turrialba valley. Overlooks a scenic lake that is made from a dammed river. Total of about 16 rooms for rent, so the attention of the staff to the guests is high and personal. Rooms are luxurious but also need some upgrading, especially in the bathrooms. There is no exercise area and... More

Wow what a place!! We rented the master suite which was 2 floors. Gorgeous but did not face the volcano. Still a magnificent view. Very classy and sophisticated feel. Grounds were also phenomenal as we walked all around. The only downside were the meals that were included. Not so good. My lunch and dinner were very similar and salty. Drinks... More

We spent a weekend at Casa Turire. This old house converted in a lovely, small and quiet hotel is surrounded by beautiful gardens, trails, a farm, a lake and much more. It is very close to the center of Turrialba town, the CATIE and the University of Costa Rica campus. You can do horseback riding or use the kayaks depending... More

This is one of the best places we have stayed in Costa Rica, and it was our 3rd trip! The grounds are SO BEAUTIFUL. When you arrive you are greeted by towering palms, beautiful flowers, butterflies and birds. The hotel is unique, it is like visiting an old plantation house! I was thankful the bed was so comfortable, I am... More

Stayed here one night in July to raft the lower Pacuare (which is a fantastic trip). Property is unique and clean, although rooms are a litte dated. Remote location so once you are there you pretty much in for the night (unless you want to tackle some challenging roads in the dark). Restaurant was hit and miss - hit for... More

Casa Turire surpassed my expectations. The plantation type building fit perfectly in the green lush surroundings. The view all around is spectacular; you can enjoy it from the gazebo overlooking the lake and the Turrialba Volcano. The food was absolutely divine, but the thing that makes this hotel outstanding is by far the people that work there. Highly recommended!

Casa Turire is a pleasant stay in a lovely inn with nicely landscaped grounds, as well as a convenient place for casual birdwatching. The trees outside the entrance have a dozen Montezuma oropendola nests, bright tanagers are all about, and the grounds include trees favored by handsome black vultures. The upper end of the lake is a natural area with... More

Stayed here a few nights as part of a tour group. It was a very interesting place, and but for a single caveat, we would have loved it. The hotel is in what looks like an old hacienda or plantation building, with the rooms on the upper floors around a large interior court. Looked to have less than 20 rooms.... More
