My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Tifakara! The grounds were beautiful, filled with lush trees, shrubs and flowers that attracted all kinds of wildlife from birds, butterflies to frogs! The hotel is in a great location, within a short drive to the center of La Fortuna, and many surrounding attractions and tours. The La Fortuna waterfall is also a 5 minute walk away, just a little further up the hill! The staff fas fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. They helped us with booking tours, arranging transportation and taxis, scheduling massages, etc. Customer service alone is 5 stars. The breakfast included was delicious! So many options to choose from! There is also complementary coffee, tea and cookies in the lobby 24/7. The bar and restaurant open back up for dinner later in the afternoon and the food and drinks were pretty good! Housekeeping did a great job keeping everything neat and clean and provided fresh towels on a daily basis. What more can I say? You won’t be disappointed if you stay here. We would love to come back and stay here again someday!

I stayed at Ti-Fakara Birding Oasis for my birthday week. We booked a basic room which was really nice and adequate for our stay. The staff was really nice and kind and spoke English which was helpful. Federico helped us schedule our covid19 test which is required for us to return back to the US. The views of the volcano from the hotel restaurant were gorgeous during the day. The free daily breakfast was good especially the Costa breakfast. I would come back and stay here again. Cons: the room had little insects in it which I guess should be expected. The dinner at the restaurant was lacking. We didn’t get a free night tour or a complimentary free drink when we arrived.

Spent three nights here with a friend and had the absolute best time. It was dark and stormy when we arrived, but Cristopher came to the rescue with umbrellas and quickly got us checked in. He continued to be super helpful throughout our stay, along with the other Tifakara employees. This beautiful hotel is a short walk to the waterfall and a quick drive to nearby spas. The staff and amenities (and frogs) make this place extra special and I look forward to staying here again in the future!

We have been in La Fortuna with our family and were lucky to stay at Ti-fakara hotel: Nice accommodation with very accommodating service of the whole team, great breakfast and a good pool/jacuzzi area. In addition the team offers a night tour of their frog gardens which was a nice experience as well. Much recommended !!!
