My buddy and I stayed 2 nights in Lost Iguana. The view outside our room was spectacular - we could see Arenal Volcano really clearly. The compound of Lost Iguana is a little hilly but the restaurant was fantastic (breakfast was great) and the rooms were very nice and clean. One downside is that the resort is kinda out of...

My family of 6 with 4 boys ages 4 to 14 stayed here for 4 nights earlier this month. We couldn't have loved it more. We were upgraded free of charge to a superior suite and loved every inch of our space. With picky eaters, we did bring some take out from La Fortuna, which we kept in the fridge...

Unbelievable views and property. Loved all it offered. Never ate so well! Had a massage at night with Letecia and it was magical. The room was open to the sound of rushing water and jungle life plus room had a clay oven style fireplace. Hiked the trails, soaked in the outdoor jet tub, watched Toucans above me in outdoor shower....

Large well decorated, corner room with large outdoor shower and soaking tub. Amazing view of the volcano. Locations away from the crowd of the other large hotels. Great trails close by. Would definitely recommend.

My sister and I met our parents here in this hidden paradise. The best part was the view from our room- a perfect view of Volcán Arenal, surrounded by lush green. The pool was clean and well-located and the buffet breakfast was a dream. The free coffee in the lounge was also a treat. The staff were generally pretty friendly....

Cul de sac sweetness, near the border of Alajuela, other side of the dam past Tabacon, and much more discrete. The long entrance roads were well maintained, despite the frequent buses to Mistico (Fair) Hanging Bridges, which share the road. They have some lovely gardens and trails, that are very private. Get 4WD or standard for this area. Only the...

A mid-range (3-4 star?) resort which achieves what it sets out to do well. Lots of character with fabulous views of the Arenas volcano from every bedroom. Rooms are comfortable with interesting furniture and fittings. Everything works – unusual in CR! Rooms are set in well stocked natural gardens with birds almost within reach from patio or balcony.

this was a very special little place with tons of local character. great staff. great excursions. We took our kids and it was one of our best vacations. rooms were very nice, clean and a tropical theme. views of volcano were incredible even with some cloud cover.
