    Noisy rooms, uncomfortable beds.

    The Lost Iguana Hotel is in a great location to see the hanging bridges and walk in the national park. The rooms are tired and the beds are uncomfortable. The standard rooms have 2x 3/4 beds in them so a couple can't sleep comfortably together in one. The rooms are incredibly noisy, you won't sleep until the last person in your block has gone to bed, and you'll be up with the first person! The patio or balcony is a great spot to sit and look at the volcano (it was covered in mist our entire stay) and the wildlife. Breakfast was very good and in a lovely environment where you can watch the abundant bird life. However the waiters seem to reserve the best tables for particular guests so we ended up stuck at the back every morning, perhaps we weren't tipping enough! The hotel is on an extremely steep site which is difficult to negotiate unless you are very mobile. There is a shuttle bus you can call to take you to your parking, restaurant or pool.

    Excellent Hotel and Staff

    This was a genuine pleasure for us as a family to stay here and we’ll be returning I’m sure. Excellent attentive staff always with a smile and genuine care for what they are doing.

    Beautiful, peaceful mountain retreat

    Beautiful location and impeccably maintained hotel. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. There is a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The standard of food is not quite up to the standard implied by the restaurants' prices but overall our stay was very pleasant

    Amazing views of the volcano ‘May 2019’

    Myself and my boyfriend (early 30’s) had booked to stay at the hotel for two nights and were not disappointed. We booked a 2 double bedroom for £180 including taxes for two nights. The view of the volcano from our balcony every morning was amazing. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. We arrived at the hotel late at night in our hire car, which was not made for the steep incline of the road leading to the hotel. The room itself was clean and spacious. Breakfast provided a wide selection compared to some of the hotels within Costa Rica. The only downfall is that we waited at the pool bar/restaurant for lunch and nobody came to take our order, we put this down to it being ‘rainy season’ so the hotel seemed relatively quiet. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
