We drove from San Jose to Lost Iguana and immediately fell in love. The service is bar none 5 star. The meals were excellent. I recommend the Hanging Bridges Tour. Grounds were lovely. We will return!

The lost iguana is a wonderful resort. The views of Arenal Volcano are amazing! My kids loved the warm swimming pool with swim-up bar for fantas. We all enjoyed the buffet breakfast of omelettes prepared to order, fresh local fruits and juices, and beans and rice. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending activities and restaurants. The resorts...

Beautiful hotel. The rooms are in small blocks up the hillside, and you can summon a golf cart at any time to do the uphill bit for you! Big, spacious room, full of character, with everything you might want. No room is overlooked, so you can sleep with the curtains open and wake with the dawn, and every room has...

We really enjoyed the accomodations, service and physical placement of the Lost Iguana Resort. You could see the volcano right from your patio and the patio was right in the middle of the thickness of the jungle. The people were very helpful and hospital. I would highly recommend the hotel.

Great place to stay and one of my favourites during our stay in Costa Rica. The rooms are very well equipped and well spaced out. Food was very good and everyone friendly and helpful. Loads of wildlife to see just around the rooms. The rain forest walk in the grounds are well worth the effort, lots of birds and other...

We got married here at the resort last Saturday. Isabel helped with setting up a gorgeous place with flowers and everything. She was incredible. The room, the service, the food was absolutely perfect. We are already planning our next visit.

We just returned home from a one night stay that exceeded all our expectations. While the resort is very nice two things stood out above all. The service was by far some of the best we have experienced and the food was way above average for the area. This is our third trip to CR and we have seen both...

We bought a Groupon for Lost Iguana for three nights and we loved every minute of it. The rooms are well maintained and clean although the air conditioner left a bit to be desired. The complimentary breakfast was solid but we did find the restaurant to be a little hit and miss. Some of the food was very good but...

We were in Costa Rica for my niece's wedding which took place at the JW Marriott. After the festivities, we headed to Arenal & The Lost Iguana. I REALLY wish we could have spent our whole time at this lovely place. The setting was magical, the staff was beyond helpful and a massage at the spa should be on everyone's...
