We have stayed at Lagarta for many years. Recently the lodge changed hands and was completely rebuilt. It went from charming, intimate, and rustic to what appears to be a disney cruise ship. They must have quadrupled the room number, and are now set up to host what seems like hundreds. It's impersonal, the food was a huge disappointment, it...

We heard about the view and came here for lunch. The view was breathtaking and the service was top notch! Surrounded by a reserve, overlooking the river mouth and ocean- this place can't be beat. Our waiter was sweet as apple pie. We got a tour of the conference area- a fantastic place for a wedding, and their wine cellar...

Went here at the recommendation of multiple staff from other hotels and restaurants that we visited. Wow what a sunset on a clear evening!! Make sure to bring your camera to capture it. The elevated vantage point adds to the view overlooking out over the area where the two rivers meet the ocean. The drinks weren't anything special, but the...

We ended up at Lagarta Lodge when an airbnb in Nosara did not work out for our family of four. What a delightful turn of events. This boutique hotel is pristine and the views are incredible. Every detail in the rooms is perfect. Allan,the manager, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Perfect sunset views and delicious food....

This hotel is in a lovely location overlooking the Pacific. Recently renovated, the accommodations are top-flight and the service is outstanding. The hotel has a 90-acre biological reserve and guests can book tours and excursions at the front desk. There is on-site parking and a shuttle to and from the nearby town. We look forward to returning!

The only reason this hotel isn't listed as number 1 is because it just opened in January. This is a spectacular property with an amazing view and the best service you will ever experience. There is a generosity in the service here that I have never experienced. I wake up at 6:00 am and am delivered a basket with coffee...

I've been to many nice hotels but this one takes the prize. The concept behind the hotel and the uncompromising execution of their promise to be sustainable was upheld in every aspect. The hotel is built so as not to harm any of the large trees that were already there. They don't use plastic bottles, they have a nature reserve...

The view. Just beautiful. Perfect spot to watch the sunset. Two infinity pools. No beach access without a car. And a little remote if you want to eat in Guiones.

First, let’s point out that Lagarta Lodge is in the process of undergoing a major makeover, do there is still some construction activity going on, but it is not intrusive in any way. In a nutshell, we were entirely satisfied with the stay, will likely stay there again if we return to the area, and would recommend the lodge without...

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
