We spent one night at Talari Mountain Lodge. The rooms are very basic and could do with some sprucing up, but the restaurant is located in a wonderful open air area and the food is outstanding. The pool is also very nice. WiFi is located in the restaurant area. We are birders and that is why we stayed here. We... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Talari Mountain Lodge for 2 nights in November 2015 and we absolutely loved it. We are both avid birders and this place sure did not disappoint. It was quite easy to see birds on their grounds and on their trails. Food (we ate breakfast and dinner there) was FANTASTIC and was very reasonable. As... More

A perfect place to relax and take in the wealth of birdlife. The owners Ericka and Carlos are friendly and caring, and there are no airs and graces about the place: it is rustic, comfortable, and provides excellent value. The birding was out of this world: sitting at the breakfast table watching Hummingbirds, Tanagers, Parrots, and Honeycreepers was birding heaven.... More

We had a great time at Talari Mountain Lodge. The owners were very accommodating, helpful and very nice people. The rooms were very clean. The food was very tasty. The birding was really really good. Plus they have a covered tennis court. Birding+Nice Lodge+Tennis court = Excellent experience

This lodge is well placed for visiting lots of good birding spots in the area and is clearly geared up for birders, with well-placed feeders by the restaurant offering great bird views. We had three nights here and whilst it wasn't the best lodge we stayed in (accommodation-wise), during our three weeks, it was still very good. Rooms were OK,... More

Reception was unmanned when we arrived. Eventually, one of the owner's young sons greeted us and took us to a room. Room was minimalist: concrete block construction with concrete foundation - solid but uninspiring. Room had ceiling fan and clean sheets and towels. It also had a lot of ants, roaches, and moldy smell. Hammock in front of room was... More

Stayed for one night at Talari, and will not stay again. Our room was dirty - dead bugs in the bed and all over the floor. It was the off season, and unfortunately, the owners were away. The staff didn't bother to clean the room before we arrived (although they did put clean towels on the bed, so obviously someone... More

If you're looking for a quiet, off the beaten path kind of place to rest, relax and enjoy the wildlife - then Talari Lodge is for you. The open-air restaurant is lovely. And while the accommodations are a little on the rustic side - we appreciated the chance to unplug and unwind for a couple of days while touring the... More

Carlos was really friendly. Even though we only stayed one night he invited us to stay and use all the facilities and to forget about the check out time. I love the open air restaurant . We were the only guests for breakfast and there were a lot of birds flying about ,coming for the bananas that Carlos put out... More

We stayed here one night only and were the only visitors. I have the impression that it is not visited that often, and even with the small swimming pool on the grounds, it was not very high class. We did not used the restaurant. Our main purpose was birdwatching and the whole area was a bit disappointing. There are much... More
