  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This resort is on a beautiful hillside with a view Arenal Volcano. The staff are welcoming and the rooms are comfortable. There is transportation available around the resort if you are not up to climbing the hills/paths. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend Lost Iguana to anyone wishing to get away to a beautiful, quiet and comfortable place for a few days!

    The property, staff, location, view and overall experience staying at this resort was incredible. This is one of my favorite resorts I have ever stayed at. Everywhere you look is filled with natural beauty. Tremendous value for the price we paid. It is truly a tranquil jungle retreat!

    It was a very nice property. We had a luxury room and it was very big and private and felt like we were right in the middle of the rain forest. Just what we wanted.

    Generally loved the resort, but they did not fulfill my Hotels.com membership perks. We were promised a bottle of wine and 25% off spa treatments and did not get these.

  • 6.0.Good

    We came here for one day/night during our honeymoon. Beautiful landscape and grounds/view of the volcano however had sent three or four separate requests for Information to the resort prior to our arrival with no response or acknowledgement. Toilet was not well cleaned upon check in, there very few pool lounger chairs to sit on (about 8 total for a full resort). Breakfast and lunch were good however as part of our only dinner (which was very expensive) we both ordered French onion soup which included almost fully raw onions and what seemed like only beef broth (it was inedible). Steaks were served on a skillet in a soup of oil which were very heavy. When mentioned to the service manager, his compensation was two free espressos (still had to pay for the soup that was inedible). Two pools on the property, one freezing cold and the other hot tub temperature, a happy medium would have been nice after hiking on the property. Upon check out, they charged my husbands visa for the full stay and thankfully I had double checked to find out we were already charged the full cost for the stay in December. They confirmed it was paid and they crediting us for the second charge however are crediting the card that has already been paid off and not the most recently charged card as requested. For the price, not likely to stay here again.
