We had a room in the bungalow, upper level, ocean front. It's cool to relax on the balcony and 4 parrots come to spend some time with you! The restaurant for lunch and dinner is just under the rooms. The restaurant is excellent and quiet with very good staff. It close at 8:00 PM, so there is no problem to... More

I traveled here right at the tail end of low season, and it's a gorgeous spot. Gorgeous jungle, miles of beautiful beaches, and warm Golfo Dulce water right off the property. The onsite service was very helpful and friendly. The food was good, but I expected more based on prior reviews. There were not many people staying while I was... More

I came to the Osa Peninsula to hike Corcovado and see wildlife. The Iguana Lodge turned out to be an ideal location for all the rest, relaxing and eating in between time out in the jungle. I stayed in one of the club rooms located above the restaurant. Despite the close location the room is quiet and not noisy even... More

Iguana Lodge is a good choice if you want to stay near Puerto Jimenz on the Osa Peninusla. The owners are very accommodating and pleasant people. The staff was excellent. The accommodations are rustic and travelers need to understand this is a lodge with screened open air cabinas. Osa Pen is very humid and there is no air conditioning. The... More

The hotel and it's staff are really nice. The food is good and nutritious. Katherine and Gabriel are awesome in the restaurant/bar and the rooms are clean and well-organized. There is hot water for showers (which is not available everywhere) and the hosts/owners Toby and Lauren are really nice. The front of the house, Mardi and others are so nice,... More

The staff there was very friendly and helpful. We loved Gabriel from the restaurant. Osa is a brilliant place and in the jungle. When you stay at there you are in the wild. However, the hotel has wonderful facilities that are all functioning and easy to use. If you are looking for something that is both untamed and yet has... More

My wife and I spent 3 weeks holiday travelling around Costa Rica with two young kids (aged 8 and 3), 5 days of which were spent at Iguana Lodge. We're experienced travellers and can be fussy at times, and our stay there has prompted me to post a review on TripAdvisor for the first time. I've been reading some of... More

We stayed at the top floor of a casita for two nights and it was the best hotel room experience of my life. The casitas don’t have normal walls, but walls made of mosquito net with retractable blinds to stop rain from getting in. This makes you feel just as if you are staying in the jungle with all the...

My husband and I stayed at Iguana Lodge for 4 nights in July 2014 in one of their club rooms. The grounds are beautiful and we were able to see lots of wildlife over our stay. Macaws regular visit and we got some great photos of Howler Monkeys. They can get a little noisy in the mornings, but we loved... More
