A gem in Arenal.
We loved staying in Lost Iguana. The room had an espectacular view of the Volcano. We saw cool birds like Toucans, hummingbirds, motmots. We definitely stay in the same location again.

Very Good 8.0
Beautiful Facilities but Poorly Managed
The facilities and view is amazing but the day after we left, we received an email from the hotel accusing us of stealing towels, a laundry bag, and a carpet. In fact, the cleaning service never replaced our dirty towels so we ended up using provided beach towels, rather than call the front desk. For our consideration, we are accused of taking towels. We never saw the carpet they accused us of stealing, so we assume this was another thing we never received in our room that we were accused of taking. The laundry bag was placed one shelf above the original location and very little searching would have addressed this. Very poorly managed, which is too bad because I wanted to return here next year with more family.

Nice views of the volcano from the hotel room balcony. Breakfast was good but he one dinner I had (Red Snapper) was overcooked and too salty for my taste. The trail around the property needs some TLC.

Good 6.0
Beautiful but bad service staff.
Let’s start with the positives. The hotel and surrounding area is beautiful. Love the fact that they built the hotel into the mountains leaving the land as un disturbed as possible. The food was better than great and the pool by the bar was amazing. Now the not so great; I made reservations for three rooms through all at the same time. My brother and I were traveling with our kids so I made all of the reservations so that we could get rooms next to each other. When we arrived the staff wanted to give us rooms in separate buildings and I explained to the staff that we were traveling with kids and needed adjacent rooms and they were unwilling to help. After speaking to a manager on the phone cause he didn’t have the decency to speak to me in person and complaining they finally gave us rooms in the same building but different floors so we accepted. Once we got to our rooms the two adjacent rooms were empty so there was no reason not to accommodate us. The staff was rude and unfriendly with the exception of Aliniuska and Estevan who were great. We booked three excursions through the hotel and every single one had an issue once we arrived at the destination were we had to waste precious time trying to fix. As a matter of fact they overcharged us for two kids who were supposed to pay $38 and they charged $85 in the Tabaco hot springs. Not writing this review for you to stay away from the hotel because it’s beautiful but to warn you to book your own excursions.
