After having an average experience in Playas de Coco, we were awed by the view from our room, the amazing front desk and staff in general and delicious breakfast and dinners here. It was the perfect way to end our trip I will be back. Don't forget earplugs, hard to sleep with all the sounds of nature around. But worth... More

Loved this place. The staff is very helpful. The view is amazing. We had a balcony view of the volcano . The food was so fresh at the restaurant and the buffet breakfast was always fresh. It is a little far from the town of la fortuna ...$30 for a ride to town, some charged 15. It's very close to... More

I think the title of this review says it all. My family (incl 2 19yr girls) spent 4 nights and we loved every moment. The people, and I everyone we came in contact with were extraordinary people. They made the trip that much better. The 2 bedroom executive suite was great from the master bedroom with a gorgeous king to... More

This hotel is in a great location if you want to be in the rain forest & have a great view of the volcano. It is 20 min from town which is a problem if you do not have your own car. Taxis are very expensive. $30 1 way. Rental is suggested if staying here. The only issue I had... More

I was hooked when I saw the pics of this hotel online. Just the idea of waking up every morning to coffee on the porch while looking at a real volcano was amazing to me.

We absolutely loved our stay at Lost Iguana! The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and private. We were given an end unit which had the outdoor shower and Jacuzzi tub. Our patio allowed us to view Arenal as we sat outside listening to the cicadas and other creatures. The grounds are beautiful. The resort has a... More
