We loved our week stay at the Lizard King. It is a perfect location to the city & a bike ride away from everything in the area. The included breakfast is amazing. As well as the other options such as lunch & drinks. This was our only stop in Costa Rica, but from what the other guests told us about... More

We were a party of three friends staying in the front room upstairs, and had a really nice stay. Breakfast was good, location was great. We were a bit nervous about the noise from the street, but by about 10pm each night it quieted right down. The room was very warm and stuffy during the day, but also was much... More

The hotel is beautifull and so cute, but the breakfast is a la carte and it takes like an hour to be served. The noise in the hotel starts at 6am and don't stop the whole day.

Was there for a honey moon. Hotel is beautiful but kind of old. Staff is EXTREMELY friendly and they are very helpful. The rooms are big but bathroom is a bit old and the aircon kind of noisy. But overall, very pleasant stay.

Not recommend this hotel when you are on Caribian coast. The room very small ( we take delux room). The smell in the room was very bad. The waiters are very slow. The personal of hotel were unfriendly. The beach is not close to hotel......

Our room has a kitchen and a jacuzzi tub, which doesn't seem to be a common thing for Costa Rica'n hotels. The pool is very nice and clean and there is a free breakfast every morning of fresh bread, eggs and rice and beans. The rice and beans is a common feature of traditional meals, they call it a Typical... More

We stayed for a day based on a friends recommendation. The owners stay on site and were very friendly. The rooms were clean and were a great value. There is a nice bar across. The beach is also just one minute away. The bakery next door is excellent.

I was visited CostaRica in the last winter with my wife and daughter. We stayed two night at Lizard King hotel resort. The resort is really amazing specially the swimming poll in-front of the resort. I and my family really loved and enjoyed the resort a lots. The customer service a support was outstanding.
