Nestled in the jungle on the side of a hill facing Arenal Volcano, Lost Iguana Lodge is a beautiful full service resort and spa. We were in room 5, which is a corner first floor suite with a lovely outdoor shower and a jacuzzi tub on the patio, which had an incredible view of the volcano! It had a king sized bed and a sitting area next to a mini kitchenette. Sitting on the patio in the early mornings, enjoying the coffee and the birds was wonderful and peaceful! There were plenty of birds to watch, hummingbirds, parrots, toucans, etc.
The swim-up bar in the heated pool was a nice touch, although it was too cold to go into the unheated pool at the time we were there. The breakfasts on the terrace in the restaurant were just lovely, with a buffet of fruits and pastries as well as anything we wanted from the menu. Wifi was a bit sketchy in our room, but was very strong in the main lobby area. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful!
Since we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, our kids gave us a wonderful couples massage at the spa and with nothing but the sounds of the jungle and the thunder as our background music, we can't say enough about what a magical experience that was! It was followed by a romantic dinner on the terrace, what an experience!!
While there, we visited La Fortuna, Arenal and Nuevo Arenal. Just up the road is the Suspension bridges trail, which was amazing!
