    We loved this hotel. The restaurant is great as well. My family and I stayed for nearly a week. We woke each morning to the noise of the howler monkeys. The hotel has a nice pool which is refreshing after spending time at the beach.

    Room was very clean, comfortable, large! and affordable for Nosara. No a/c, but didn't miss it with screened windows open and fans on. Restaurant and bar onsite - very good food! Although a bit expensive, which is to be expected for Nosara.

    Hi Brian, I am booked to go to the Gilded Iguana and was wondering if you rented a car or was taken through a shuttle bus. How did you you get there from the airport. Thanks, any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mariana
