Sandra is very nice and welcoming. However, Room has no A/C and only loud fan. Bedsheets were too small. Few hungry muskitos in the room . Noisy pool in the morning. Hardest night we've had in Costa Rica. Playa Hermosa is very nice however, so if you get up early, you can enjoy!

We stayed at iguana inn as a last resort because there was no other place available. We quickly understood the reason why. Rooms and common areas are extremely dirty. Bathrooms are the worst of all. They were clogged and just plain gross. The room walls were covered in ants and other unidentified bugs. I strongly suggest you don't attempt to... More

I've been meaning to write this review for a few months now - the owners, Kenny and Sandra, were very hospitable and very down to earth. I arrived there in late June with 3 of my girlfriends, having called only a few hours before we arrived there to reserve our rooms. Since we were unfamiliar with Playa Hermosa, Sandra had... More

I spent for luxury on some days and looked for budget sensitive value on other days. It is the budget sensitive value category... More

Coming during off season, we were lucky to be the only guests at the inn for 4 nights, and were able to stay in our room for 10USD/person/night. We stayed in the big room by the pool with a little kitchenette en suite. There was a ceiling fan which kept the room quite cool at night, and even a TV... More

We spend 5 days at the Iguana Inn and liked it very much ! The little swimming pool is very pleasant tucked away in the tropical garden and Sandra is adorable. The rooms are simple, basic and clean, and at night we could hear birds and frogs and howler monkeys near by... We would definitely go back for another vacation... More

This was a lovely little hostel, friendly staff, great little pool and close to the beach. We were concerned about hot nights prior to booking, but on their website some rooms were advertised with AC. There was no AC. We had an upstairs room and it was like a sauna, only one window and a fan, so no air flow.... More

I stayed there for one week to relax a little, work a little, swim, take sun and run. I got what I was looking for at a very good price. The owners are very friendly and ready to help. The beach is a one minute walk and is very nice, quiet and clean. I generally slept well and my fan... More
