Toll! Wir kommen sicher wieder!
Wunderschön und Mega nett! Von A-Z ein toller Aufenthalt direkt am Wasserfall! Die Café Bär und die Frog 🐸 Tour waren das Sahnehäubchen!

Tifakara is one of the top hotels I’ve ever stayed at across 38 countries of traveling. The ambience of being surrounded by tropical birds, sloths on property, and other wildlife like monkeys while enjoying their awesome pool, jacuzzis, and food/drinks is everything I could want in a hotel getaway. I will recommend this to all my friends/family and come back for sure!

Poor 2.0
It was our 2nd hotel on the trip to Costa Rica. It was not a great experience. Immediately after moving into the room tempered glass door in the bathroom scattered injuring one of our senior family members (we had 5 peoples traveling). She is still recovering from the shock. yes, new room was provided, but no other form of compensation was offered. Stuff was slow to respond, and our conversation with manager returned that they "need to investigate." Explosion of low-quality tempered glass is a very common problem, but we never faced such in Expedia hotels. We believe that entire stay in Tifakara must be completely free as they failed to deliver the experience we have expected and actually received but with other two resorts in Costa Rica. Still, stuff was really nice and trying, but the major complaint is with the conditions of the property. In addition to the glass issue, tile floors and concrete blocks on the property are very slippery. Other two members of the group were about to fall few times. Overall property looks better in the pictures, but reality is different.

I liked everything about the hotel. Great service people and very pretty spot. Loved everything about the tifakara hotel and would highly recommend it to everyone. The breakfast each morning was awesome and the frogs in the pond are super cool. Loved our stay.

Our favorite part was how isolated the property is, you are staying literally in the jungle and still you are super close to the middle of all of the most popular attractions in La Fortuna. I would highly recommend having a car... it gives you access and freedom to go everywhere.

The staff make you feel welcome . The night frog tour was amazing. Open air showers were unique experience. Definitely would stay here again. Thanks again to the great staff.

Our room was better than expected and my husband and I were already looking forward to our stay in La Fortuna. The hotel Staff, most especially Daniela and Erick, were so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The frog pond was charming and the property was gorgeous. The breakfast was great and coffee was available throughout the day, which was nice after a hike or a visit to the waterfall. The recommendations were on point. We opted for an in-room massage from Arestetic Spa. It was PERFECT! They also helped us choose the right hot springs for us. We will definitely stay here next visit.
