Exceptional 10,0
My husband and I visited the Lost Iguana for our honeymoon. We had never been to Costa Rica before and were absolutely blown away by our experience. The resort was gorgeous. It was well maintained, the views were breathtaking, and we felt like we were in the middle of the jungle with the lush greenery. The staff was attentive, friendly, and gave great recommendations on local activities. The staff truly is what sets this place above the rest. They were so kind and welcoming, and truly loved their job and beautiful country! The resort was within a few minute drive from hot springs, waterfalls, and the downtown area. Great location.

The staff is amazing. We enjoyed are time here very much. Made my birthday experience extra special. From the girls at the front desk, to the guys at the pool/restaurant, they went above and beyond.

Stunning Views and Great Service
The Lost Iguana property is simply stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed walks around the property and late afternoons watching the sunset from our porch. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and very spacious. The service was great, especially at the onsite restaurant. We didn't use the pools while we were there as it rained a lot but they looked very clean and inviting. The hotel is relatively far from town. This is a great hotel if you are looking for peace, quiet, and romance.

Cool outdoor shower and a seperste outdoor tub. Good hiking trails on the property. The guide rraaly knows his stuff.
Gretchen, us2 night trip
Good 6,0
Great staff and beautiful setting. However most of the hotel amenities are not working. The spa is closed, the hot pool is not working, the restaurant operates very limited hours and the cable TV routers are down. In addition to that, the hotel is 25 minutes away from town. There are many better better hotels, with thermal pools, closer to town and better overall services at comparable or even better rates. This place just does not make sense
Simon, us4 night family trip
Exceptional 10,0
My boyfriend and I just checked out of this hotel and we are so sad to leave. This hotel is absolutely beautiful. It sits secluded and is a bit off the beaten path but worth it. It’s 20 min ride to La Fortuna. Close to all attractions and walking distance from the Hanging Bridges at Mistico. We flew into Liberia Airport and rented a car. Our flight was delayed 3 hrs so that pushed our almost 2 hr car ride into the night time. The ride from Liberia to the hotel was tumultuous. It was raining and deep into Rt 142 (need to take to get to hotel) there are no street lights. Very dangerous and would not recommend unless in daylight** Staff were very accommodating throughout our stay. They are so polite and so friendly. Rooms were clean and the beds were very comfy. Throughout the day, especially at night, you can really hear the sounds of the rainforest which is so tranquil. The view from our room was worth a million dollars, omg. Amazing. And our shower.... was so cool! A double-head outdoor shower that is enclosed but so spa-like and tropical. Water pressure was amazing. Breakfasts were awesome and very traditional. We ate dinner there twice which was decent. The hotel is gated with a 24-hour guard and we felt very safe. Many areas of parking on site. If you are staying near Arenal, check this place out! When we return to Costa Rica I will absolutely want to stay here again!!
