All in all we spent 4 nights at Tacacori ecolodge and we felt like home. Nadine, the owner, is such a wonderful person. She made us feel like family and was always available and helpful.The gardens are lush and full of birds. The casita ' s are all beautiful and very clean. The shower is better than at home. It...

A lovely start and/or end to Costa Rica. We were looked after so well, delicious breakfast, clean, comfortable rooms and beautiful gardens. Good luck for the future Nadine - you have a special idyllic place. The Robinsons

Friendly service, decent breakfast and private bungalows in a Costa Rica of your mind setting. Rooms have little amenities outside of a fridge, warm shower and patio and the lighting can be a bit dim so a headlamp may help, it will also help on your walk to the nearest restaurant (Xandari) down the hill (this walk is not for...

We stayed here one night, the final night of our week in Costa Rica with a flight early the following morning. The owner, Nadine, met us when we arrived that evening, and led us down a landscaped path to our room/bungalow. We had to leave the hotel at 5am the next morning, so she prepared us a breakfast that we...

We had read great reviews of Tacacori EcoLodge and it was even better than the reviews. Patrick met us at the airport and drove us to the beautiful Tacacori. Our casita was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was elegant. We enjoyed the private patio outside our casita, looking out on the lush garden. Breakfast on the main patio featured fresh...

Patrick and Nadine, a French couple, warmly welcomed us in their full comfort EcoLodge. To be eco friendly does not mean bypassing the comfort. Large and well-lit rooms and bathrooms, very comfortable beds and chairs, each room having its patio with long chairs and view on a puzzling & beautiful garden, tasteful breakfasts with local fruits, … It’s great to...

Lush! Our only regret was it rained during our stay making the room seem damp. Oh well. That's Costa Rica. The owners are lovely and really helpful. The grounds are breathtaking. Breakfast was wonderful.

Dear Teri, Thank you so much for your nice review. I am delighted to read that you liked our lodge, especially the garden and our tropical/continental breakfast. You are completely right to mention there where a lot of humidity when you came in November. Costa Rica has two seasons: summer (verano – December through April) and winter (invierno – May...

Tacacori was the first hotel we stayed in after landing in Costa Rica; it certainly gave us the warm welcome we were looking for and was the perfect place to unwind and relax before we took off on our week-long road trip. Despite the lack of addresses, road names, etc. in this country, finding Tacacori was actually a breeze! Our...

We stayed at the Tacacori EcoLodge for two nights, at the beginning of our holiday in Costa Rica. We have visited Costa Rica many times, and this lodge is the best accommodation we ever had near the airport. One reason for this is that you do not notice the close proximity to the airport during your stay at the lodge....

4 little bungalows in a lush garden, close to San Jose Airport. It is just great to arrive late in the evening, go to sleep to wake up to what seems a private garden with Hummingbirds flying around. A great start for a vacation in Costa Rica. The French couple running the place are very sympathetic and helpful, breakfast is...
