The most Amazing views in Nosara! The dinner with drinks on the sunset deck is the most memorable sunset and dinner I had in Costa Rica. The food is delicious and fresh. The rooms in the lodge are large and rustic and all have amazing views of the ocean and the river mouth. I highly recommend staying here and hiking...

Stayed our final three nights in costa rica at this beautifully located and well-run hotel. great views from our large well-appointed room, with vaulted ceilings, several ceiling fans, A/C, small & quiet fridge, sitting table/chairs, writing desk, large king bed (mostly firm), walk in shower, modern toilet and sink. Good lighting options too, for bright or soft lighting. Fan on...

Hotel Lagarta is a restaurant with beautiful views that happens to have six rooms for let. The rooms are basic/fine but don't expect luxury or much attention from the staff. The views from the room are exceptional, however. Our night's sleep was negatively impacted by a party room that was never shut down by hotel staff. The owners did acknowledge...

Dear Guest – many thanks for staying at Lagarta Lodge. Since your stay was just one night you maybe didn’t had the time to experience the whole Lagarta Lodge service and infrastructure. At Lagarta Lodge there are six standard fan rooms (where you were in) and further up six junior suites with AC. Nice to hear that you liked the...

We stayed here a few years ago and I am finally writing a short review which may be slightly out of date and is too vague and unspecific, but nevertheless has a point. For what it is worth, I will say that the lodge and surrounding area made a lasting impression as one of my favorite places in the world....

We enjoyed our stay over all, but there were some drawbacks. The beds were okay, not the most comfortable. Our room felt a bit charmless. The food is mediocre, although the breakfast for $10 is good. Lots of choices and all you can eat. Unfortunately, at times there was a distinct smell of a septic system at one end of...

Positives - kind and friendly owners, fantastic breakfast (extra charge), low room prices, and most of all the views of sunset and beach in general. Negatives - every cab ride is $15 each way, no matter where you are going, and the hotel is at least a cab ride to most places, for most people (hilly dirt roads aren't ideal...

Dear Guest Many thanks for staying at Lagarta Lodge, with its tranquil setting next to the Nature Reserve at the end of the touristic zone of Nosara.

I have done a few reviews of hotels in South America and this is by far in my top 3! This hotel made our whole trip just amazing. First, the service is wonderful.

This is a WONDERFUL place! The hosts are kind and gracious (as were all the staff) and the location is perfect. We enjoyed everything about it.

We arrived at sunset and were warmly greeted by Regina. The view is amazing. The warmth and graciousness of the host is what you hope to find when travelling but Regina is simply wonderful. My wife and I both opted for the tenderloin. It was tender, perfectly seasoned and a generous potion. We couldn't have picked a better spot for...

The day starts with a big breakfast buffet including the typical local "Gallo Pinto", Swiss home made bread and good selection of seasonal fruits which was excellent. The location and view is the best in Nosara, close to nature and a short drive to the beaches.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Find rest and relaxation at our recently remodeled unique hotel amidst pristine nature. At Lagarta Lodge we reopened the doors as a fully remodeled hotel with twenty-six junior suites last December 2016. It is considered as a favorite Costa Rican hotel with breathtaking views onto the Pacific Ocean where our guests can enjoy the unique ambience surrounded by verdant subtropical vegetation and within reach of the ocean. Give yourself the opportunity to explore the hotel-owned nature reserve Reserva Biológica - or you can choose to relax in our spa or delight the magnificent views from our pools. For a relaxing vacation, Lagarta Lodge in Nosara is the ideal boutique hotel in Costa Rica as other options include practicing yoga, treating yourself to a massage or other special treatment in a naturally restorative setting. ... more   less
