Loved everyone we met there, including the owner(s). The view is incredible, the sunsets are a sight to behold, and the property is so relaxing and beautiful. It's not super fancy or anything, but it is just great. We loved it here.

Iguana Azul is a small and cute hotel in Junquillal with breath taking ocean views, nice pool and a very chic decoration!! Highly recommended for staying in Junquillal, an area in Guanacaste very beautiful and isolated

The new owner Donny was there to personally greet us, and the chef Eduard came out to answer any questions we had. My meal of "summer rolls" was simply divine! They are...

The resort has been recently sold and updated with more plans in the works. By far the most best view for sunset in the area. The pool is lovely, clean and newly painted. Rooms have been improved and the staff is very pleasant to work with. Donnie, the new owner has made an effort to embrace the local and expat...

We visited the restaurant/bar at Iguanazul 3 times on our recent stay in the Junquillal area. What a beautiful place to just relax, have drinks and watch the sunset. Happy hour was 5-7 which we took advantage of. We met several ex-pats here who were very friendly and gave us some good information on the area. The employees were exceptionally...

I stayed here for 12 days during April 2013. Flew into Liberia and had a driver (recommended by the hotel) pick me up.
