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,...

We spent seven days here, each one filled with amazing wild life opportunities to watch and photograph, I was in my element. My room faced the San Carlos river and walking the grounds at 6 am each morning revealed some wonderful and surprising wildlife such as armadillos, sloth, opossum, anteater, emerald basilisk, Iguanas,crocodiles and some amazing colorful birds, The 76...

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...

Wonderful hotel. Service is excellent. Food is good from the a la carte menu, but when they have groups in and there are too many people, it suffers. Buffet dinners did not give enough variety (cooked food) and unforgiveably, chips and other food were COLD! The grounds are lovely with lots of exotic birds to see. There is a river...

This is an interesting place to stay. The accommodation is good, the rooms are reasonably well appointed. I think the shower room is due an upgrade as starting to look a bit tired, but overall a comfortable stay. The grounds are wide ranging and full of wildlife, something around nearly every corner. The staff are friendly and helpful, I used...

We got a discounted rate online and thought this place was a great value. Room was spacious, shower was large and had plenty of water even though we were visiting during the dry season. The grounds are very pretty, especially the side towards the river and we saw lots of hummingbirds, iguanas and other birds. Pool was fantastic, breakfast was...

This was our third hotel. They had all been different and good in their own way. This resort was more modern and very comfortable. Like most hotels, it is spread over a large area. The accommodation is two storey, but you access one level from the back and one level from the front, therefore not having stairs to climb for...
