I cannot say enough about the Lost Iguana, my boyfriend and I were literally on the edge of tears when it was time to leave. Everything about this resort is exceptional. View is amazing, grounds are stunning, staff is beyond friendly and attentive to all your needs, food and service at the restaurants there were yummy, AND saw more wildlife outside our rooms then any other place in Costa Rica!

The entire staff was amazing. Luis was definitely the man, he was our bartender then our server for breakfast. Stunning views from the room. The FREE breakfast was also a great way to start the day.

Incredible views, with a property that is not super crowded so you really feel like you're at a semi-private retreat. The have some trails right from your room and the pool area is very nice and rarely had more than a few people if any. The only semi-downside to this resort was how far away it was from La Fortuna (about 15 minutes), so we ended up eating at the on premise restaurant almost every night. The good news is, the restaurant food is great and there is a large menu so we never ate the same thing twice.
