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

We stayed here with friends and loved the area. We saw plenty of birds and the location was very piece full although only just outside San Isidro. The grounds are nice but everything could do with a bit of a spruce up. Pool cleanliness seemed a bit lacking. A bit overpriced compared to other places we stayed. The food was... More

Well, if you never have seen birders in their element, or if you are in for a new experience in ecotourism, then go to Talari Mountain Lodge. This bucolic hotel seems to cater mainly to groups of bird enthusiasts, and to observe them, for us was an experience in itself. While we succeeded in identifying about five species that day,...

This place is not far from the town of San Isidro but it feels like it is worlds away. Rooms are basic, but there is little reason to be in them except to sleep and shower! Each morning there were brilliant forest birds right outside our front door. Each room has a small patio and a hammock. There are trails... More

A little off the beaten track (our driver needed to ask directions), this was a gem of a place. Nice basic rooms, great food, nice birding on the grounds, and connected with great local guides. The open-air restaurant had great views of the valley to go with the meals. Room was somewhat small, but who spends time in their room... More

the rooms were fairly basic - perfecty comfortable and clean, but without too much luxury. However as we explored, we found a 'hidden' pool (which we didn't try), and a lovely restaurant / bar, where very good food was served, and where you could sit and talk. The lodge covers a large area, with good birdwatching opportunities, and the owner... More

The hotel Talari was nothing fancy, but the setting was great. The clean rooms were of cement construction divided into two blocks. Each block contained 8 rooms. Rooms were small, and a bit crowded, but the bright colors helped alleviate any potential depression. Air conditioning was not available, nor needed. Beds were variable; the single bed in our room very... More

The lodge is rustic, don't expect anything other then a bed to sleep in, shower etc. I didn't use the pool, too busy birding the property and other locations, great birds and an interesting piece of land. My favorite was the canopy space where you ate your meals, scan the horizon for birds or sip a glass of vino, a... More
