We love the natural world and its animal and botanical treasures. This was a wonderland, with howler monkeys as wake-up alarm clocks, sloths in the tree next to our 3-story tree house, toucans and macaws, iguana occasionally and sleeping to the sound of crashing waves from the Gulfo Dulce. Breakfasts were fabulous with a specialty every morning, including perfect rice... More

My family and I left Iguana Lodge this morning after a wonderful week spent there. The staff are amazing, friendly, caring and nothing is too much trouble for anyone. The owners Toby and Lauren are a lovely couple and their happy friendly attitude reflects through the whole place. The hotel is set in an idyllic spot, the rooms are spotlessly... More

This resort is owned by an American couple who are very much involved in running the place and it shows. All the staff were very friendly and everything was efficient. Our room was relatively small (upstairs from the restaurant), but that was ok since the grounds were so pretty and there were so many comfortable places to hang out. The... More

From the welcome drink to the sarrongs awaiting us in our Casita, this place had the vibe of what we were looking for! I loved the outdoor yoga space and the massage/spa area. The staff makes you feel like family and the Ginger spritzer is one I want the recipe for! I appreciate healthy, clean eating and the family style... More

What she said. No, seriously, what else can I put that others have already said better? It's wonderful and beautiful and blah blah blah. So, seriously, let's just get down to brass tacks. It's hot. I'm from Mississippi and I know hot and humid and it's HOT. There is no AC. Again, THERE IS NO. A.C. I'm a menopausal overweight... More

Kudos to Lauren & Tony and their staff for being such gracious hosts for our family reunion. The Iguana Lodge was truly paradise. From the the food (awesome), to the casitas (very comfortable), to the pool, the beach, and The Pearl. Oh The Pearl, it was the place to be, especially on Friday night, what a great party to wrap...

We stayed 12 nights at Iguana Lodge. It was a wonderful and relaxing experience. The staff is friendly, and the food is excellent. Macaws, toucans, howler monkeys, and sloths are a constant source of entertainment right on site. The pool is beautiful, and there are multiple places to meditate or do yoga. The lodge is a 10-15 minute drive from... More

We just spent 5 wonderful days at Iguana. Toby and Lauren have created a magical place - the accommodations were comfortable, staff helpful, food and drink fantastic and setting perfect. And of course, Costa Rica itself provides such a wonderful environment to relax. But what sets Iguana apart is that Toby and Lauren have managed to create a place that... More

Iguana Lodge has some of the nicest most accommodating staff I've experienced. The atmosphere is laid back and the food is superb! Thank you for a wonderful time. I will definitely return again, hopefully soon.
