My husband and I are avid travelers and we try to stay places that are somewhat local, but also still have that vacation atmosphere. The Lizard King Resort was so beautiful and the accommodations were better than I have had at any South American resort. Their customer service was just great and they even helped us plan little days out... More

Me and my boyfriend of five years went to Lizard King last month and had an absolutely wonderful time. We stayed for four days and three nights. Are go-to spots were the beach, bar, and pool. I was a huge fan of the margaritas and my boyfriend loved those mojitos. It was so nice to be able to sit back,... More

We were lost, walking in the rain and asked to use the internet so we could find out the phone number to call our hostel for directions. Thought about staying here until they said only guests could use the wifi.... More

My family, including our spoiled Chihuahua (we can't leave him at home, he pouts and won't eat), had a wonderful experience when we stayed at the Lizard King Hotel Resort in July 2015. We were here for 5 days. We enjoyed clean, comfortable rooms, plenty of towels and hot water, and an attentive staff that was very understanding and helpful... More

My wife and I were quite pleased with our room. First thing I noticed was how clean the room was, nice fresh aroma, fully stocked--we didn't have to ask for anything. Its location is a huge plus. We're beach people and we were very close to the beach, as well as the downtown area. It was a nice feeling to... More

This was my first time in Puerto Viejo and I enjoyed each day of my 4-day stay. Me and boyfriend got a good deal for the hotel stay at the Lizard King and was surprised to get such a paradise experience for the low cost. Our room was clean and comfortable and the hotel staff was very friendly. We didn't... More
