The owners and the staff were awesome. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The food at the lodge was delicious. There were quite a few ants around, but that was likely due to the location and the sustainability practices of the hotel.

We were lucky enough to visit Lagarta Lodge for a full week in November. After an adventurous journey up pothole-riddled roads, we arrived at this gorgeous spot. The rooms were spectacular, with floor to ceiling windows and spotlessly clean bathrooms. We ate breakfast at the restaurant every morning, and the platters of fresh fruit, made-to-order eggs and the homemade breads... More

Visited Lagarta Lodge for supper and to see the sun go down with my wonderful daughter Clare and her equally lovely partner Neil. They took me to this amazing place at the end of a dirt road with rain forest all around and the ocean below. We sat sipping wonderful cocktails as the sun went down, absolutely stunning views. We...

Best view to the ocean and rain forest from the bed or the terrace. Wake up with sounds of birds. Wonderful and absolutely clean hotel with friendly and helpful employees. Close to a short trip into a rain forest down by the hotel. Just a few steps downstairs to a beautiful beach.

At the end of a dirt road perched above the Pacific at the mouth of a river, this is a really great getaway. You can walk right into the mangrove in there adjacent nature preserve. You can continue past the feeding spoonbills and sunning crocodiles on down the beach. The rooms are large, with private balconies hanging in the forest... More

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel with excellent service from the staff and a very personal touch from the lovely owners. Breakfast was amazing every morning and well worth paying extra for each day with eggs to order, fresh baked bread, and organic slow drip coffee AND fresh squeezed orange juice. Dinner was very nice and authentic as... More

Wonderful view, sunset is a show from the bar. Owners are very nice, comfortable room and pool, great breakfast. Beaches are 100 steps or 10 minutes walking. Just be aware that last 50 km to Nosara are dirt road full of bumps, better have a SUV. We did it with a standard car, VERY slowly.

Dear Guest – many thanks for your review! We have good news regarding the access road to Nosara and Lagarta Lodge. A big road reparation started and within a short time the road will be –still a gravel road- but in a very good condition. There are no rivers to cross if you arrive from Nosara’s south side. Many thanks... More

We had a 3-night stay at Lagarta Lodge in Superior Room 9. It was a wonderful place to end up a 3-week roundtrip through Costa Rica. Wonderful sunset, beautiful nature around, ver good food, convincing sustainability concept. The fresh bread and self made jam are highlight already in the morning. We went for turtles in Ostional, Canopy Tour and Sufing... More
