My mom, dad, husband and I visited Apartamentos Iguanas for one week. We rented the two upper apartamentos. We adored our stay. We could not have been more thrilled. Marga and her family are fantastic beyond words. My mom and dad are in their 80's with my dad having a heart condition. Marga was so kind and caring and time... More

We stayed here for one week. Clean units on a piece of nicely manicured property perched on a hill in the small town of Esterillos Oeste. A nice pool, patio and bbq grill, in front of the owner's home, to hang out at and look out over the ocean. Plenty of iguanas scurrying around to observe, and even a pair... More

My fiancé and I visited this place with friends and family. There were 5 of us in total, all adults. We stayed at the bottom unit which was clean and comfortable. Marga went out of her way to make us feel at home. The property is absolutely gorgeous - very dreamy wonderful place.

My wife and I spent a couple of nights in the room attached to the main house. Very comfortable and clean. Marga was helpful and kind. The setting and view are lovely. The walk to the beach is easy. We also walked to the local restaurants and Super Sol market with no problem at night. I would definitely stay here... More

Out of all the hotels/hostels I´ve stayed at in more than 20 countries around the world, I have to say that this experience was one of the ABSOLUTE BEST. I also live in San José and have traveled extensively around Costa Rica and can tell you that you´re not going to find anything better than this in the country for... More

We stayed here with our children and friends. It was a little hard to find at first but the town is small and friendly we asked a couple of people and were quickly pointed in the right direction. We have stayed before in Playa Hermosa and prefer to stay outside of Manuel Antonio and Quepos. The prices are better and... More

Staying here with my husband and 4 yr old daughter was the best decision! We are frequent travelers to Costa Rica and typically stay in Playa Hermosa. This magical hotel is situated just a short stroll from the beach with beautiful ocean views. The owner Marga and her husband Sean, and son James are the quintessential hosts. They are completely...
