Dear Guest Thanks for your visit at Lagarta Lodge at the end of the rainy season, which was indeed rainy, with all its side effects. This is the reason why you just paid $ 55 plus taxes per room and night. There are rooms with A/C for an additional cost available, if you like to avoid humidity completely. On our...

The best hotel on our trip in Costa Rica. We had booked Standard room, but we got Superior. We were lucky. The room was spacious and clean. Beautiful view from terrace to ocean. Interesting bathroom - Nontraditional view of the ocean when you are in the shower. Wifi on the room. Breakfast was traditional and very tasty. The part of...

We (2 families, 4 adults, 4 children) have spent three nights at Lagarta Lodge, because we wanted to be close to Ostional to watch the Turtle arribada. We were very satisfied. The lodge is situated on a hill overlooking the Lagarta-river, the nature reserve and the pristine beaches of the region. There was always a breeze on the terrace, where...

We've visited Lagarta Lodge a few times before and will no doubt visit again. There is no prettier view that we have seen anywhere in Costa Rica. The owners are very helpful in recommending activities in the surrounding area. They helped us arrange a private boat tour on two rivers as wall as an early morning visit to a neighboring...

Lagarta Lodge is on a great location to begin with. The sunset views from their sunset bar, or from any of their balconies are one of my best memories. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very affordable. The staff was always smiling and providing great service. The couple that owns it make sure you have everything you need, they make...

The Sunset Bar at Hotel Lagarta has the most spectacular view in the Nosara 'hood. It's a bit of a hike to get there, but well worth the effort. We weren't staying at the hotel, but the bar is accessible to anyone. So even if you're not staying there, be sure to go for drinks and snacks to wallow in...

Hotel Lagarta is a special place! My family of 4 stayed in a Standard Room for three nights in July. The hotel is located within a nature preserve, on a hill overlooking the gorgeous Pacific. We found it very comfortable, spacious, with a gorgeous view of the ocean right outside our door. The service was friendly, gracious, and very professional....

High above the dust and dirt of the Nosara area stands the Hotel Lagarta, run by a brilliant husband and wife team, exemplifying fine hospitality. We were staying at a so-so hotel in the area, while on our second day of driving around, saw this place and had lunch there. An excellent meal with a commanding view of the coast...

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
