I highly recommend. Staff and facilities are great. I drove from airport and they answered all my questions on how best to drive there. Close to La Fortuna but not so close to be caught up in the touristiness of it. It was the highlight of our vacation.

We couldn't have picked a better hotel! The staff, especially Alex at the front desk, were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our luxury suite was spectacular and it was amazing to wake up every morning to a perfect view of the volcano. The beds were very comfortable and the room, bathroom, and balcony very roomy. It felt like we were in... More

Our stay at the Lost Iguana was thoroughly satisfying in all aspects: the view, the rooms. the food and especially the staff. They were very helpful and friendly and will be glad to help you with your Spanish, too. We liked the grounds and space surrounding the buildings. We arrived after dark, and were welcomed by birdsong and wonderful jungle... More

We had an amazing time at the resort. I would defiantly recommend this to people with family. The grounds were beautiful and the food fantastic. We were here for two nights with our 4 yr old and 6 yr old who couldn't get enough of the pool!

My partner and I arrived at the Lost Iguana on the 18th of April after a 4 day stay at a busy (and noisy) resort in Playa Hemosa. What an absolutely amazing resort! The staff greeted us and promptly checked us in, informed us of the facilities and the opening times, and assigned us our rooms. We had booked a... More

This resort was fantastic!!!! The buildings (we only saw three rooms per building) are built into the forest so you can hardly notice the others. The rooms and balconies are very private. And the views of the volcano were breathtaking. Our room had a king bed with a canopy and small bar area, perfect for two people. And the hot... More

We just returned from a four night stay at the lost iguana resort. What a fantastic place. We stayed in a celebrity villa as a family of five.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Lost Iguana. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. The Arenal area is special with all the activities and hot springs and has to be the most beautiful area in Costa Rica. We passed lots of other hotels on the road and were happy we chose the Lost...

Every room has a view of the Arenal Volcano. The grounds are beautiful and very much like something you would wxpect to see in a movie or travel ad. Very friendly staff. A bit isolated, about 10-12 kilometers from La Fortuna. Rooms were nice, but nothing spectacular. We drove over from Playa Panama on the Pacidic coast, a little over... More
