This resort is simply beautiful. It is forests of La Fortuna. The spa is great. My husband went for a 90 minute special and he said it was one of the best experiences. The rooms are in great condition and the breakfast menu is just awesome. The best thing is the customer service by all employees in the resort. Our... More

We stayed at the Lost Iguana for one night during our trip. Our first choice, the Nayara was not available on our arrival day in La Fortuna. Unfortunately, we arrived at night and were not able to appreciate the grounds of the hotel as much as I would have liked. On the plus side, the rooms are EXACTLY as advertised.... More

Our goal at the Lost Iguana is to always try to make people happy, no matter what. Sometimes that's impossible, but we do try. The manager and wait staff immediately... More

Amazing Spa My friends and I checked into different options for a Spa Vacation, but everything we liked was very expensive. A couple who had stayed at Lost Iguana told us the hotel had the best spa they had ever seen. After checking out prices, we got a great off season price and stayed there for 6 days. Not only...

This is my second stay at Lost Iguana and it gets better every time. Between the beautiful rain forest, tropical birds and the view of the Volcano - there is no better place.
