This was a nice place in a beautiful location, but it was our least favorite in Costa Rica. It was nice, but just not as remarkable as the others. The view of Arenal was great (although it was cloudy most of the time we were there). I liked being walking distance to the Hanging bridges, which were great. The rooms... More

Rocio V, Owner at Lost Iguana Resort & Spa, responded to this review

I am sorry that you visited during a cold, rainy time. It is true that Dec and January can drop to the 60s and with rain it does seem chilly. There are several options at the hotel designed to let guests enjoy their stay if they come during a chilly period. The resort has two pools, the top is a... More

We just got back from CR and the Lost Iguana was one of the hotels we stayed at. We were looking for a hotel that was tropical feeling and this one fit the bill. The grounds were lush and beautiful. Great volcano view from our room. Restaurant was very good, but we did venture out a bit to eat elsewhere... More

Lost Iguana Resort and Spa was just what we wanted. It was isolated. Very quiet and the grounds is fantastic with all the vegetation. Our Junior Suite was #20 on the top floor located on the corner of the building. Great view of the volcano. This resort is a very romantic place. The service that we got was immeasurable, from...

I visited the Lost Iguana with my girlfriend and we found it a perfect spot for privacy and adventure. The Hanging bridges were just up the road and Tabacon Hot Springs and Zip Line just minutes away. When not out on adventure we loved our room with the volcano view and the walks on the grounds of the hotel. The... More

Even though in Costa Rica the Balinese decor was beautiful and the treatment matched any I ever had in Bali. I loved also wi fi... More

For our stay in the Arenal area we choose Lost Iguana. I was torn between Tabacon and Lost Iguana, but I decided on L.I. because I thought it would be less commercial, less crowded, but still special. I am glad with the choice I made. It had a unique feel, in keeping with the natural surroundings. It was not crowded,... More
