Everything is perfect, everything is beautiful, everything is charming. We were not in a hotel but as sharing the guest house. Friends who besides being friendly, smiling and helpful serve great food. Thanks for all!

I carefully read everything on the Iguana Lodge website before we booked. I knew we wouldn't have air conditioning, but considering that is was the beginning of rainy season and right on the beach, we didn't think it would be a problem. Wrong! I think it would have been tolerable for 3 or 4 nights, but more than that was... More

We went with a Travel Study Group from Stanford and found the Lodge to be just what we were looking for. Definitely go to the Web site to make sure it is something you will like. It is an eco lodge. :-)

I highly recommend the iguana lodge to anyone who is searching for true paradise. The rooms are perfect, the pool and jacuzzi feel amazing and the scenery is breath taking. You will see iguanas, scarlet macaws, and monkeys. The rainforest borders a beach that you basically have all to yourself. I would love to go back

The lodge is beautifully run. The food is excellent and the proprietors are hands on and extraordinarily attentive. Its remoteness adds to the charm. With no telephones or television sets to distract you from the natural beauty of the place, you are left with the sounds and sights of the Costa Rica rainforest.

I have been fortunate enough to travel a fair amount so have refined my travel palette if you will. The Iguana Lodge was the perfect balance for me. Casual to pass the time slowly or be as active as you want, but with welcome comforts like delicious food. It attracts some great like-minded people, Lauren, Toby, and their dogs Zisi... More

Incredible experience. Lauren, Tobey and the Iguana Lodge team genuinely want you to have a wonderful time, and that is made evident from the email correspondence following your reservation confirmation through to the follow up after you leave. The food (breakfast and dinner), the accommodations, the service, the location and the activities (including the spa) were all exceptional - be... More

I had no idea that I would be staying in such a wonderful place out in the middle of nowhere! It is absolutely one of the coolest places I've stayed and the food was perfect! Also the owners were lovely 😊

From soup to nuts, this Iguana Lodge was terrific! We stayed in the beach house - just great. Food was superb as was the dining ambiance. Staff all extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. The lodge was so peaceful with everything we could ask for - beach right there, wonderful pool, tons of birds and animals. Monkeys, toucans, macaws, sloths and... More
