The property is located in a beautiful mountain area reminiscent of Swiss alps. The chalets have 2 rooms, so we had neighbors on the top floor and you can really hear their steps. Jacuzzi did not work and we paid extra $10 for the superior room. The bed is extremely short, so the legs of a 6' tall person stick... More

The concept of this hotel is swiss chalets, we rented a suite with fireplace. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were as if we were at home. They give enough wood for the fireplace, the only thing is, they had (at least in our room) 2 chairs instead of a couch to sit by the fireplace. Breakfast was... More

The place and gardens are very nice. The rooms are ok. Bath Not great, room kind of smelly , They should upgrade it to The level of the gardens and buildings. The breakfast is very good. Resturant for dinner is salty but ok. The place could be very nice for events of any kind. Kids can enjoy the tree house.

Hotel Chalet Tirol is a beautiful place. The grounds are immaculate with a lot of hydrangea flowers. You can take a nice scenic walk around the grounds and enjoy the clean air. The restaurant was terrific. I had the Sea Bass while the service was very good. I will be back.

Although we did find it a little difficult to find- forget finding it without a GPS- once found, we were delighted. We were hoping to shorten our trip to the Poás Volcano the following day by staying at the Tirol, which is located between the airport and the volcano, but ended up having to drive back towards the airport and...

Although finding this little gem of a place in Costa Rica may be difficult for tourist like myself, the arrival is awe inspiring and worth the maze-like-drive. The Alpine theme is so beautifully captured you can almost spot a gnome wondering the garden. The woodys design is carried throughout the hotel grounds. The rooms are lovely too. Spacious two bed...

This is a great little hotel about an hour -- and a world away -- from San Jose. The room is wonderful: comfy king-sized bed, nice bathroom with toiletries, and a little balcony off the back. The grounds and gardens are lovely. We were only an hour away from Volcan Poas and a 30-minute drive from the airport. Staff was... More

Fuimos este fin de semana al hotel el Tirol para recibir información del lugar como locación para nuestra boda. El Gerente General en persona nos atendió y nos dió un recorrido por el lugar. Rodeado por altos arboles de cipres y bosque nuboso, con casitas pintorescas, este hotel parece salido d una aldeita de cuentos. Entre bosques, jardines y plaza,... More

Such a beautiful, charming atmosphere! It was a bit like walking through the Garden of Eden on the way to our room with lush landscaping, colorful flowers and butterflies! The room was clean and cozy. I don't know where they found their chef but the food and wine were impeccable! Must try the basil mashed potatoes!! What made the food... More
