Stayed twice at The Lost Iguana. Loved it for the quiet ecological area that was within quick day trips to rain forests, history, etc. and laid back easy days. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food in restaurant was good with close by restaurants if you did choose to eat at hotel.

Absolutely stunning views. Gorgeous, clean rooms, awesome outdoor styled showers. Hot tub on porch. Only thing I wish was that it had a bigger refrigerator. Our kids had the superior suite and had a full refrigerator and stove. Another daughter didn't. Not sure how to request a room with one. We didn't have a blender either but they went above...

Great hotel with excellent friendly staff. Really enjoyed our stay. The restaurant was excellent. From our rooms the view of Arenal was superb. Fantastic area to explore if you have a car. Climbed Cerro Chato. The National Park warden who takes your payment for the walk was superbly friendly and slightly surprised we were British and welcomed us even more...

We started our trip in Costa Rica with a 3 night stay at the Lost Iguana. We stayed in the Laughing Lizard unit which had two bedrooms and two bathrooms that was perfect for our family. The master suite had a lovely outside shower and a large jacuzzi tub with a view of the volcano. Just outside the door there...

This is a lovely place with very comfortable accommodations, good food, congenial bar, very nice spa and gift shop and great views over the valley to the volcano. Some of the rooms are up pretty steep paths/roads, but the staff will give you a lift in golf carts. It is isolated, so you will need a car or taxi to...

We enjoyed one night at the Lost Iguana. The view of Arenal Volcano was superb, the staff was kind. The trails on the property are well kept and very pretty and we saw Howler Monkeys, tucán birds and a few other lovely animals. We would come again.

The hotel is located down a secluded track well away from the road. We were taken to our room in a golf buggy as it was a distance from reception up a very steep hill, if you've got mobility issues this hotel is not for you as it's on the side of a steep hill, hence the views!! The room...
