Great hotel is jungles
Hotel is amazing with great view. Stuff is helpful, rooms are clean, restaurant has pretty good food as well. It is a little of older side but it only gives it more charm.

Average and lacking attention
Hotel was worn down and room was very dark with no comfort. Service in reception seemed rushed. Compared to webpage, price and other hotels standard it was not what I had expected.

Great location and hotel!
Lost Iguana is a great hotel in amongst the Costa Rican jungle with lots of wildlife. The pool is great with a swim up bar, and there's also a cold pool if the hot one becomes too much. The staff are very helpful and attentive, and will help with any problems or tours or help with bags. Will definitely come back if in Arenal again.
