I am a little biased, I have stayed at the Iguanazul 6 times now. We got engaged there and then a year later married there (wonderful day, no hassle just lovely).
It is a clean basic but beautiful place. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The food is very good for such a remote place.
We ended up there by accident in 2003, we thought we booked a place in Tamarindo on the net (first time in Costa Rica). 6 hours of hard driving (it has improved every year) from San Jose, arrived just in time to see the sunset, that made it all worth it.
It is not a busy place but you will feel at home in minutes. How many places can you have a white beach to yourself?
Not a place for singles / groups of youngsters as there is very little to do at night (bar shuts about 10 ish, a late one is 12). There is still plenty to do in the surrounding area. Having a 4X4 helps.
