Accommodation is in rooms all looking onto the wide river, Large terraces allow comfortable views of wildlife and countryside. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and appear really proud of this eco hotel. The owner was keen to speak to guests. Lots of room to walk and sit in the grounds. The butterfly house needs a bit of attention. Birds are attracted to the restaurant area with fruit. Very nice pool area and jacuzzi.

This hotel and conference center is located in the Arenal Conservation Area. Owned by an American, former Peace Corps volunteer, who married a Costa Rican woman. Large property with gardens, walking paths, lots of birds (toucans in the trees outside our room). Arenal volcano in the distance. We stayed in a newly built wing: large room, well appointed bath. Lighting was complicated for some reason. Took us a while to figure out how to turn things on and off. Also our room was a good distance from the restaurant . We didn’t mind the walk, but some might. Good buffet breakfast, comfortable bar. Tour groups often have buffet dinners, but a menu is also available.

UNDERRATED! Only a 15-20 minute drive from the volcano/ excursions. The rooms are brand new and sparkling clean(see pics). Room smells like an Aveda spa. Front desk staff is amazing. WiFi is free at any point in the resort and breakfast was included. Dining is amazing. The resort also has butterfly gardens and horses. Breakfast was included and spectacular.. each day at breakfast we would be within feet of iguanas and sloths. Originally booked at Tabacon, but fleed here when the staff RELUCTANTLY admitted the first coronavirus patient had been there the day before and the resort was never closed down(see review on tabacon page). Staff here at Tilajari was transparent and amazing. Will book here each and every time for sure! ABSOLUTELY loved it.

This was a great place to stay. Airy rooms, comfortable beds, a/c and a clean bathroom. I see some reviews moaning about the room decor but it's supposed to be natural. The grounds are beautiful with a river towards the rear. The river is full of crocodiles and there are many iguanas around the garden, they are harmless! The sounds of crocs can be heard in the rooms. The bird feeding at breakfast is a great touch and food is good enough. For the price, location and the facilities on offer its hard to beat around the area!

Spent part of a tour here. They feed the birds in the mornings and it is an absolute treat to watch them whilst having our breakfast. However the “ human food “ was a little disappointing apart from the first night. Beautiful grounds meticulously maintained. Butterfly enclosure needed updating - bit sad. However they seem to cater for all activities - a very busy place .....
