We recently stayed for 2 nights at this gorgeous modern hotel set in lush grounds. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Conveniently located a 5 min walk from the amazing La Fortuna waterfall (which is a must do!) and a 5 min drive to the town with its many restaurants. We ate in the hotel one evening and the food was delicious, good value with great drinks on the menu. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruits and a selection of hot options which are freshly prepared. Rooms are clean and comfortable (a little on the small side) but the fabulous open shower made up for that! The complimentary night tour around the property was fantastic and we saw lots of great animals. Would highly recommend staying here!

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at Tifakara Lodge on the 4th & 5th day of my birthday trip. From the time we arrived to check out, the staff was very accommodating. The hotel is small, charming, and well maintained. We loved the pool and hot tubs. The rooms were just as pictured!! They were cleaned daily, and linens were replenished daily. Breakfast was included as well, it was your traditional Costa Rican breakfast. I really enjoyed the coffee and cookie bar which was complimentary all day. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Tifakara Lodge was making this a great experience.

I cannot say enough things about this place. The atmosphere is AMAZING and the staff are some of the nicest humans and n the planet! Each day we would wake up and be greeted with smiles and a unique breakfast that was included with the stay. The food is amazing!! We had Eggs Benedict and Monte Cristos on our 1st day here which was life changing! Steven, Josue, and Danilla were great! Each day we went on an exciting adventure, zip lining - horseback riding - volcano sightseeing - coffee tours - and the hotel took care of all of the details! They are truly an amazing experience! 10/10 recommend. Our favorite part were the cute animals left our room each day from the housekeeping!

A great hotel for a great price. Service was excellent, and the night walk offered was very cool; lots of frogs and even a sloth sighting. The outdoor shower was cool too. Would definitely recommend if you’re in La Fortuna.

From the moment we arrived, how we were received in the reception, to the cleanliness to the space, the breakfast., etc. Everything was beautiful and very welcoming. We brought a friend with us who wanted to experience Costa Rica and you became a great ambassador. We also love your location. Close to everything and at the same private. Tank you!

5/5 stars!!! The massage therapist, Rebecca, was amazing!! It was relaxing and rejuvenating. I slept like a baby! She will come to your room for the massage and has a great setup. I highly recommend having your massage with Rebecca while at Tifakara. She has magic hands!!

We recently stayed at Tifakara for four nights during our honeymoon. The personal bungalo rooms complete with an outdoor shower were lovely. We especially loved being able to fall asleep to the beautiful sounds of nature. The pool and jacuzzi area were perfect for relaxing after an adventurous day! The complimentary breakfast was delicious. We expected a buffet style, but were pleasantly surprised by a breakfast menu featuring 10-12 items. The chefs at Tifakara are excellent and the food was much better than we anticipated. The lodge is pretty far from town (you can walk, but we didn't) so the hotel helped arrange transportation with reliable taxi drivers. Lastly, all of the staff was super kind and helpful. Daniela went above and beyond to check in with us while she was on the property and helped us plan several of our adventures. We highly recommend Tifakara and would definitely stay again if we are back in Costa Rica!
