I think the title of this review says it all. My family (incl 2 19yr girls) spent 4 nights and we loved every moment. The people, and I everyone we came in contact with were extraordinary people. They made the trip that much better. The 2 bedroom executive suite was great from the master bedroom with a gorgeous king to... More

This hotel is in a great location if you want to be in the rain forest & have a great view of the volcano. It is 20 min from town which is a problem if you do not have your own car. Taxis are very expensive. $30 1 way. Rental is suggested if staying here. The only issue I had... More

We just returned from a great visit with our 2 sons ages 12 and 14. The staff is so welcoming, friendly and helpful! Loved Luis at the bar -- we ate dinner there 2 nights (my son ate his in the (very warm) pool - so fun!) and he took good care of us all -- and the other families... More

We're in day 4 of a 7 day stay at Lost Iguanas. The first two nights were great but night three and now night four we've lost power. The third night it was out for about 3 hours. So far the fourth night it's out 1 hour. Had it not been for the power outages, this would easily be a... More

Dear guest, I'm so sorry your visit was during a horrible storm. We are located in the rainforest and the electric lines come from the coast. When a line goes down it takes the electric company a while to fix it. We provide all guests with candles and flashlight and the restaurant and bar operates on gas and is always... More

I was hooked when I saw the pics of this hotel online. Just the idea of waking up every morning to coffee on the porch while looking at a real volcano was amazing to me.

We absolutely loved our stay at Lost Iguana! The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and private. We were given an end unit which had the outdoor shower and Jacuzzi tub.

The resort itself is beautiful and the rooms are very nice and some are really big. But I was expecting more for this kind of price.

For the end of a long trip we splurged a bit and booked the large suite for our family for one night, at a discount rate as I believe this is the low season for tourism.
