Great friendly and helpful staff. Good food very pretty view. Pool was fine but just too hot for us to use the well done tennis courts. Loved the huge shower. Wish we were back on our balcony having another pina. colada!

An average hotel. Nice, comfortable with easy access, wide room and clean. Restaurant is nice and well located in the nice gardening area. Nothing special to say except the gardens around. Little noisy because of the close road to the rooms, and the parking in front (although it is very handy).

We had room 503 which was large, clean & very well appointed. Also excellent bathroom with very good shower. Best to get an uneven numbered room ie 503/603 etc. as these are upstairs & have large balconies, whilst even numbered rooms are at ground level & only have a patio. Breakfast is buffet, only a adequate selection. Lunch again buffet...

My room was very comfortable and quiet, and had a balcony that faced the San Carlos River. The large grounds which had numerous beautiful flowering shrubs had an amazing selection of birdlife, reptiles and mammals. Although not geared up to vegetarian diets the kitchen staff were very obliging.

This is a very nice, ~3 star hotel in a good location for explorers. Rooms are basic and clean, nothing terribly fancy but nothing bad either. The area around the rooms is nicer, with some good opportunities for bird watching. We saw a crocodile down by the water. You will see tons of iguanas. Pool area is nice for kids,...

The bird life is fantastic. Fruit put out by staff at Breakfast attracts the most exotic birds in every colour and if you are lucky an iguana will come along and clear up any droppings. We also had a crocodile on the far bank across the river. The rafting on nthe river was the best experience of our holiday. Drifting...

We spent a fabulous 7 nights at this great resort of Hotel Tilajare, located in the San Carlos region of Costa Rica, and right on the edge of the San Carlos River. The large gardens are abundant with wild-life, ranging from all sizes of Iguanas and lizards, a huge variety of birds, and if lucky a couple of Sloths can...

Stayed her for a week when touring Costa Rica. Lots of wildlife to see in the grounds and surrounding areas, a bird watchers paradise. They feed the birds during the day so you will get some wonderful photos. Iguana's are in abundance and there were Sloth's in some of the trees. Sadly the butterfly house is in need of some...
