Lagarta Lodge is simply breathtaking. From the minute you arrive and walk through reception and see the view it is the beginning of a truly special experience. The rooms are great but standing on the balcony at canopy level and watching the sheer variety of birds, monkeys etc is spellbinding. Balanced over the river the views, especially at sunset, are...

Lagarta Lodge is high on a hill in Nosara with absolutely gorgeous panoramic views of the beach and the jungle. The best views are from the Sunset Bar, but the open air dining room is a close second. The rooms have huge balconies, so you can enjoy the view privately as well. The food (particularly the breakfast) is outstanding and...

Agree with all the positive reviews. Here are a couple of things to consider: 1. the lodge is somewhat remote. We did not have a car and were not comfortable walking to other restaurants. Some are not too far but it's hot and dusty. We rented cabs for $15 one way. Good walkers can make it to some places in...

Don't miss Lagarta Lodge for the gorgeous location and views of the mountains the river mouth playa ostionale and the ocean. Excellent spot for breakfast after an early hike at the biologica reserva or at sunset time!!!

One of the best value for money hotels we came across on our three week trip. Huge rooms, fantastic view, and they really take care of you. Food is slightly overpriced, but breakfast is excellent. Definitely recommended. Stunning views.

Well hidden in the off-path village of Nosara, this is an excellent address, committed to sustainable tourism, with Swiss know-how (and friendliness + humor - not quintessentially Swiss, but very welcome qualities :))). Service, cleanness, rooms are impeccable, and food very good (albeit a bit too watered down to fit the taste of the Euroamerican tourist - let spices flow!)....

Very pleasant owners, spacious room, quiet A/C, comfortable bed, and amazing view. The pool was great, and the private nature reserve was very enjoyable to explore. The food left a bit to be desired, as it was a bit on the expensive side and really overcooked. We sent it back the first time, but when it happened again the next...

The owners and the staff were awesome. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The food at the lodge was delicious. There were quite a few ants around, but that was likely due to the location and the sustainability practices of the hotel.
