Don't miss Lagarta Lodge for the gorgeous location and views of the mountains the river mouth playa ostionale and the ocean. Excellent spot for breakfast after an early hike at the biologica reserva or at sunset time!!!

One of the best value for money hotels we came across on our three week trip. Huge rooms, fantastic view, and they really take care of you. Food is slightly overpriced, but breakfast is excellent. Definitely recommended. Stunning views.

Well hidden in the off-path village of Nosara, this is an excellent address, committed to sustainable tourism, with Swiss know-how (and friendliness + humor - not quintessentially Swiss, but very welcome qualities :))). Service, cleanness, rooms are impeccable, and food very good (albeit a bit too watered down to fit the taste of the Euroamerican tourist - let spices flow!).... More

Very pleasant owners, spacious room, quiet A/C, comfortable bed, and amazing view. The pool was great, and the private nature reserve was very enjoyable to explore. The food left a bit to be desired, as it was a bit on the expensive side and really overcooked. We sent it back the first time, but when it happened again the next... More

The owners and the staff were awesome. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The food at the lodge was delicious. There were quite a few ants around, but that was likely due to the location and the sustainability practices of the hotel.

We were lucky enough to visit Lagarta Lodge for a full week in November. After an adventurous journey up pothole-riddled roads, we arrived at this gorgeous spot. The rooms were spectacular, with floor to ceiling windows and spotlessly clean bathrooms. We ate breakfast at the restaurant every morning, and the platters of fresh fruit, made-to-order eggs and the homemade breads... More

Visited Lagarta Lodge for supper and to see the sun go down with my wonderful daughter Clare and her equally lovely partner Neil. They took me to this amazing place at the end of a dirt road with rain forest all around and the ocean below. We sat sipping wonderful cocktails as the sun went down, absolutely stunning views. We...

Best view to the ocean and rain forest from the bed or the terrace. Wake up with sounds of birds. Wonderful and absolutely clean hotel with friendly and helpful employees. Close to a short trip into a rain forest down by the hotel. Just a few steps downstairs to a beautiful beach.
