We just got back from our second stay at this resort. Once again we really loved it. They have a great complementary full breakfast every morning. Great way to start your day. We enjoy being away from town. It's not that far to go in for dinner a few nights. You will see how busy all the others resorts are...

This was our last stop of a 3 week vacation and we stayed 5 nights. We had the bottom floor of a casita. It had a fully equipped kitchen, a large bathroom with double outdoor shower, a powder room, a living room, a bedroom and a large deck. On the deck was a double whirlpool tub and 2 rocking chairs....

We stayed at Lost Iguana about four days and really enjoyed our stay! All the staff was great to interact with and the view of Arenal Volcano from our room balcony was amazing (perfect way to wake up each morning). They have a heated pool with a swim up bar, so can't go wrong there! Also there are a ton...

Lost Iguana Resort and Spa is truly a hidden gem in the jungle! Our room was spacious and clean and had an amazing view of the jungle and Arenal Volcano. The bar area is small but quaint and dinner in the restaurant was excellent. The resort is located off on it's own and aside from walking trails around the property,...

The grounds of the Lost Iguana are lovely and well maintained! And the staff is ever present. Lots of rain while we were there; however, there are umbrellas at each building you can borrow to go to the next building. You definately feel that the only thing around is the Resort. That is great for privacy; however, this can be...

A rare combination of privacy, exceptional service, and great access to the wonders of the Arenal area await you at Lost Iguana. We stayed in the upper casita, #52, and in addition to a perfect view of Arenal, we daily saw Toucans, eight different tanagers, tayras, coatis and more right off our balcony.
