Everything I have tried was delicious and well made. They got it down here. By far, best food in the area.

We really enjoyed our visit to La Isla Verde. Beautiful location and setting. Food was great and we met Ollie a fellow Brit who was great and offered us some great onward advice for our travels. It's was a rare cold day so we had hot chocolates with ginger and rum beside the fire whilst we waited for the weather... More

A group of us headed over from our hostel to have a nicer dinner, and we all fell in love with Isla Verde. The chef creates a three course meal every night for dinner, and the three times we went, the food was fantastic. They also have a lot of great spaces to eat and relax: you can eat on... More

My husband (then fiancé) and I came to love Isla Verde when we spent two months in Santa Cruz hanging out at their lake front restaurant sharing jugs of kombucha. We soon discovered that the restaurant and hotel was run by some incredibly nice people and found ourselves spending more and more time there. Their pancakes became a quick favorite... More

Best of Isla verde is it's awesome location on the lake, really good breakfast and really good manager Oli. Only downside is limited warm showers but it's an environmentally conscious place with solar hot water so for us this was no issue at all. Really good value for money given the location, food, service etc. Would highly recommend staying here... More

Although I have never stayed at Isla Verde, I have frequented it various times as a place to relax. The food and drinks are great, the covered patio or outdoor raised balcony are amazing, and the the garden setting is perfect. If visiting Santa Cruz or Jablalito, it is a place to include in your trip for a bite to... More

We loved this hotel and its wonderful facilities. Stunning views, ever so friendly staff and a truly peaceful and tranquil setting. The restaurant was excellent and catered to dietary restrictions. The massages were terrific, the yoga studio was comfortable with a tremendous view. Ollie was a lovely, attentive and kind host and we would love to return for a longer... More

The hotel is located remotely and is only accessible by boat. The views are breathtaking. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The rooms are perched up higher up the mountain. They are super cute cabanas with incredible view. The hotel offers delicious food and complimentary yoga in the am. I highly recommend isla Verde.

We travelled with our 3 young children. There wasn't much to do for them at the hotel. Still we enjoyed delicious dinners on the terrace and you really feel disconnected from the world. Our room was a big family suite which had ample space for our family and a great terrace overlooking the lake, but it needs a little TLC... More

We stayed at IslaVerde for a week a few years ago and the service back then was excellent, the place is really nice and relaxing but recently we went there again for lunch in July 2016 and the service was TERRIBLE!!! We waited 2 hours for our food (I know they cook it all from scratch but they did that... More
