We had a week here on our Costa Rican holiday. The birds here are amazing especially the variety visiting the various feeding stations around the dining room. The Iguanas never ceased to fascinate and they even have a butterfly house. The setting on the Tarcoles river is lovely and we had an upstairs room with balcony which was great -...

I had a lovely, well-appointed room with a balcony overlooking some of the extensive gardens and the San Carlos River. Every time I stepped out of my room, I met some of the local wildlife - iguanas, squirrels, a sloth in a tree, beautiful birds and even a crocodile on the river bank! Every morning the staff put out bananas...

We stayed here for 7 nights during our 3 week stay in Costa Rica. It is well located for travel to the many surrounding attractions particularly in the Aranal volcano area. The grounds are very extensive with the substatial Tarcoles river running along one side. Much wildlife including sloths, iguanas, lizards and crocodiles (on the far river bank) can be...

It was a 10 days meeting done on this hotel and it was quite nice to spend there among the nature and the closeness to animals, sloths, iguanas and birds all over the place. Is really a way of getting contact with nature and serenity. Food is really good, especially breakfasts. Two bad things was that we ran off of...

Wherever you look there are iguanas - throughout the grounds, climbing trees, on the river bank, even lazing alongside the jacuzzi or climbing onto your balcony. They seem totally at ease with visitors but whether guests appreciate being so close to iguanas is another matter - especially when some of them may be up to five feet in length! However,...

I stayed here with my mom and my sister in January. We purchased an all inclusive package which was extremely worthy. We loved every bit of the hotel... from the nature, the birds to the rooms that were extremely comfortable. We laid by the pool just enjoying the day and letting the time pass by. The only reason why I...

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. What I found most amazing about this hotel resort is that the grounds are absolutely fabulous. We walked around it for hours. There are so many cool plants, trees, birds, animals and insects to check out, you will be amazed. There was even a sloth in a small tree 100 feet from...

First, I recommend having a car if you stay here, because there is nothing close around it. Most everything is a 30 to 40 minute drive away. I have been to the Tilajari a couple of times. We had our wedding there two years ago, and the event planning was great! It was a beautiful wedding and all my family...

Stayed here two nights and just couldn't get excited about the experience. It's a large place with lots of rooms, clean and with a nice staff. The grounds are expansive with some parts being very pretty. But, some parts like the butterfly garden showed a singular lack of care. Dining area is large to accommodate tours and does a decent...
