Stayed at the Villa Lapas for 3 nights as part of a Costa Rica tour. The hotel is a small resort with lovely grounds where all sorts of wildlife is abundant, particularly the birds. The highlights were toucans, woodpeckers and humming birds..... no monkeys !! The rooms are on the small side, a bit dated but comfortable. Our room opened... More

I have just spent three nights at the Villa Lapas as part of a tour of Costa Rica and I would happily have stayed for many more days. The rooms were beautiful, the food is good and the staff were all wonderfully kind and helpful. Above all it's a place of peace and tranquillity, where you can sit and walk... More

We arrived in the early afternoon from Monteverde after being dropped off by the bus. The grounds are beautiful as one would expect from being next to Carara. The reception, bar & restaurant are in a breezy open air area with views of the garden. The rooms are on the small side which was fine as we spent most of... More

The Villa Lapas lodge is quite nice: it has a nice garden, a very nice swimming pool, and friendly personnel. Also, the room and mattresses were okay. Additionally, quite some iguana's are walking around. On the other hand, the lodge did not meet my expectations. The reason is that it is, and in my opinion, overly expensive. Additionally, it are...

First of all, I wish I had more than the one night I stayed. It was really lovely and Full of wildlife and tropical elegance. It is one of those all inclusive resorts, so I was not sure how the quality would hold up. I intend to return. Surprised at how much I liked it. There were a couple of... More

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Parque Nacional Carara. We couldn't have been more delighted. Our room, with a king-sized bed, was very clean and comfortable. The rooms have air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Toiletries are provided. The grounds of the facility are beautiful, with abundant wildlife. The hotel primarily caters to tour groups, but we were able... More

But it's difficult to put your finger on it. Guest accommodation is in linked rooms which all open onto a covered walkway facing the extensive grounds which front the Tarcolitos River. The accommodation is more than acceptable despite being described to us as being 'basic'. The hotel complex is located on both sides of the river which is crossed by... More

Rooms large and air-conditioned, food very good, small but wonderful pool and birds galore - this is a serious bird watcher's paradise. Although I am not a serious or any other kind of bird watcher, I loved the wildlife and the surroundings here. Our neighbors had the largest telescopes I've seen on our journey and carried them early in the... More

I stayed at this place for two nights with OA T and could not be happier. We stayed at six different places in Costs Rica and I thought this place was among the best. If you are looking for a four star hotel than probably you are on the wrong vacation. Costa Rica is about nature and friendly people. You... More

The Hotel Villa Lapas is located off the main highway about a mile inland across the highway from the town of Tarcoles. The place is off the beaten track situated among the forest with a river that runs right through the property. The hotel resembles the old type of colonial Spanish architecture with luscious landscaped grounds over many acres of... More
