The hotel and it's staff are really nice. The food is good and nutritious. Katherine and Gabriel are awesome in the restaurant/bar and the rooms are clean and well-organized. There is hot water for showers (which is not available everywhere) and the hosts/owners Toby and Lauren are really nice. The front of the house, Mardi and others are so nice,...

Iguana Lodge Beach Resort and Spa encourages and respects all legitimate reviews, both good and bad. About two years ago, we introduced yoga as permanent program. Yoga fits in well with the lifestyle that Iguana Lodge promotes and is very popular among our guests. We also understand that there are many different styles of yoga and because it is so...

The staff there was very friendly and helpful. We loved Gabriel from the restaurant. Osa is a brilliant place and in the jungle. When you stay at there you are in the wild. However, the hotel has wonderful facilities that are all functioning and easy to use. If you are looking for something that is both untamed and yet has...

My wife and I spent 3 weeks holiday travelling around Costa Rica with two young kids (aged 8 and 3), 5 days of which were spent at Iguana Lodge. We're experienced travellers and can be fussy at times, and our stay there has prompted me to post a review on TripAdvisor for the first time. I've been reading some of...

We stayed at the top floor of a casita for two nights and it was the best hotel room experience of my life. The casitas don’t have normal walls, but walls made of mosquito net with retractable blinds to stop rain from getting in. This makes you feel just as if you are staying in the jungle with all the...

My husband and I stayed at Iguana Lodge for 4 nights in July 2014 in one of their club rooms. The grounds are beautiful and we were able to see lots of wildlife over our stay. Macaws regular visit and we got some great photos of Howler Monkeys. They can get a little noisy in the mornings, but we loved...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. I want to especially thank one of the owners. She was able to arrange for us to fly into Corcovado after I told her we weren't going to be able to. This turned out to be the greatest experience my wife and I have had in search of wildlife on 4...

The Iguana Lodge provides a peaceful refuge in a largely undiscovered corner of paradise. The staff and owners are very friendly and provide great service. This is an Eco-lodge and Puerto Jimenez is hot and humid. There's no air conditioning and the heat can be uncomfortable with no refuge, so if you like your creature comforts this isn't the place...

I spent a couple of days at Iguana Lodge last week and greatly enjoyed my stay. Mid June is not high season, so I was the only guest in the Club Room area. Only two couples with children were staying in the Casitas. My room was in the Club Room building located right on top of the La Perla Restaurant....

HI, Thanks for visiting. We didn't get a chance to meet you as we were away. We take our food quite seriously here, and "mediocre" is definitely not a word we often hear about our food - so we followed up - we were fascinated. Who are you, and what did you eat? ​ Due to the wonders of​ technology,...

Staying at the Iguana Lodge provided a warm, loving atmosphere where I could relax on my deck and watch wildlife. The howling monkeys are my neighbours and their bark is bigger than their bite. I saw an iguana in the tree outside my door to my cabin. The host gave fresh bananas by the bunch everyday. We had internet access...
