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.

My husband & I just spent 5 nights at Iguana. We are repeat customers because we like it so much. I was really looking to just relax and be in relative quiet and I got exactly what I needed, while being totally pampered with great and nourishing food, a comfortable room, beautiful beach with lots of swimming. The staff at... More

This is one time when I can't add much to what has already been noted in most of the other reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief visit to Iguana Lodge. The accommodations were very comfortable and, as noted by the previous reviewers, all of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. I'd like to give a special shout-out to Maxine who... More

My wife and I spent five nights at Iguana Lodge and could not have been more pleased. Lauren, Toby and their staff were exceptional in their attitude and desire to see that every request was satisfied. Accommodation, in an upper Caistia, was great; fell asleep to the sounds of waves. Woke up to bright sunrises and the sounds of birds... More
