I dare say this was our favorite place in Costa Rica. Perfect place for a honeymoon (even a wedding!). Beautiful grounds with great views of the volcano (our room had a private patio with a wonderful view). A nature lovers' paradise. You can walk around the stone pathways to visit different areas. There is a heated pool open in the... More

This was a great place to end our honeymoon. The rooms are beautiful (we stayed in a standard room on the first floor, no 18). We particularly liked the towel elephants and the spa! The large balcony with volcano views and rocking chairs was well used for relaxing and night time lava viewing. The bar and restaurant had excellent service,... More

Great location as I could see the Arenal Volcano erupt as I lay in my bed one evening. Enjoyed the outdoor pool tucked in the lush rainforest. Comfortable rooms but not fancy.

We stayed at the Lost Iguana for 5 nights in a luxury suite. We went under the ROMANCE PACKAGE which was nothing less that romantic. The view of the volcano nightlythat we watchen from our porch was fabulous. One night the moon even rose from behind the volcano which was so incredible. We zip lined. went to the hanging bridges,...

Great place. We had booked 4 nights and then at the end decided to stay one more. With the extra day we took advantage of a couples massage at the spa - which was wonderful! The food was good. The staff was great! The room was fantastic with the outdoor lava shower and of course the view was ... WOW!

Eight of us traveled together to the Lost Iguana. What a magical experience!!! The room was enchanting, with the jungle surrounding us. The staff was amazing, especially Jose and Michael from the swim up bar and restaurant. The grounds were amazing. Would go back in a second!!!

Stayed in Lost Iguana for 2 nights at the end of April. Our room was Room 37 - on the 2nd floor. The room was very clean with tropical decor. The porch has 2 rocking chairs with an amazing view of the volcano. Also since the rooms are nestled on beautiful grounds, we would wake up early every morning and... More

I have only good things to say about The Lost Iguana. Spent 3 nights there. Location was perfect - nestled in the Rain Forest on the side of a mountain with PERFECT view of the volcano. We didn't see Red Lava but we did see daytime eruptions (Until it rained and rainded). Service, accomodations, restaurant, and SPA were fabulous. Get... More

We stayed at Lost Iguana for three nights in late April and loved every moment. The various building of the hotel are perched high in the hills (we were thankful for our 4x4 when it rained) on a gorgeous property. We were welcomed from a long drive with fresh fruit shakes and gracious service which was a hallmark of our... More
