The Sunset Bar at Hotel Lagarta has the most spectacular view in the Nosara 'hood. It's a bit of a hike to get there, but well worth the effort. We weren't staying at the hotel, but the bar is accessible to anyone. So even if you're not staying there, be sure to go for drinks and snacks to wallow in... More

The hotel is lovely and affordable. The staff is very friendly. The food is delicious. You can walk to the beach, to the local nature reserve or river tour. The Sunset Bar has great views of the coast. Overall, a wonderful stay!!

Hotel Lagarta is a special place! My family of 4 stayed in a Standard Room for three nights in July. The hotel is located within a nature preserve, on a hill overlooking the gorgeous Pacific. We found it very comfortable, spacious, with a gorgeous view of the ocean right outside our door. The service was friendly, gracious, and very professional.... More

High above the dust and dirt of the Nosara area stands the Hotel Lagarta, run by a brilliant husband and wife team, exemplifying fine hospitality. We were staying at a so-so hotel in the area, while on our second day of driving around, saw this place and had lunch there. An excellent meal with a commanding view of the coast... More

I will return! It was one of the most beautiful spots in the world I visited to far. The views, the room, the food, the gardens, the pool, the sunset bar - it was just perfect! The owners are super friendly, super efficient, super helpful, and very well connected (in regard to guided tours etc.). You absolutely need a car... More

We stayed at Lagarta Lodge for 3 nights, looking to combine surfing with birding, and of course this is the perfect place for that. We arrived tired after the drive in, and were immediately asked to sit down on the beautiful terrace and offered a drink. The owner Regina came, with her incredibly warm smile, to check us in right... More

We just returned from staying nine days at Lagarta Lodge. We initially were going to stay only four days and then switch to another hotel for variation but when we realized we were in heaven, we cancelled the other place and stayed on! The view is one of the best in all of Nosara. (I used to own a house... More

Largarta Lodge if off the beaten path but that is what makes it so appealing. My husband and I came at the very end of the dry season so it was one of the few places not covered in road dust.

First of all, you have to work to get here, as the spot is at the top of a long, dusty (probably muddy in green season) road, so four-wheel-drive is recommended. Once here, you will be treated to a jaw-dropping view. The sunset is unbelievable! We were equally blown away by our superior room, with its own balcony from which... More

We wish we had stayed during our stay. We were the first to arrive before sunset. The restaurant was booked for dinner, but we were able to sit on the patio for cocktails and appetizers until after sunset. We did not see the rooms, but the view, gardens and hotel dining room is beautiful.
