Okay, so I consider myself to be very chill about where I stay, not too picky, this place was cool for me and my girlfriend for a few days while visiting a friend in Puerto Viejo, we enjoyed it and the staff was friendly, i've also been visiting Costa Rica for over 10 years and one thing i've learned is...

Lizard K, General Manager at Lizard King Hotel Resort, responded to this review

Dear Mr. koolhandluka, The reason you were charged the $250 is because you were smoking in your room. You sign an agreement during your check-in that you will pay a fee of $250 if you smoke in your room. The fact that you checked out of your room without tell the staff that you smoked in your room does not...

I booked this hotel super last minute during my trip in Costa Rica, and Andres made this stay amazing! As soon as my fiance and I walked in, he was nothing but super nice and sweet. He was super helpful with any questions we had and always made us feel welcomed. The second day we were there, we met the...

So just a heads up for anyone who plans to book here, when we checked in, we suddenly realized that the pool was out of service and was in construction. This upset me as it was a reason why we booked this resort, but it says nothing on the website about this. So I complained at the front desk and...

Thank you for your comment Michael, swimming pools some times have a bad habit of getting leaks when you least expect it. We took immediately action in fixing the pool in a way that it would be leak-free for many years to come. However, to fix the leak required temporarily emptying the pool. We now have a much better looking...

Great staff, nice rooms, I loved the common areas, I could sit on the corner of the second floor seating area for hours watching the world pass by, we bought some beers & did happy hour there every night. Breakfast was included with the room and was very good. The room was large, private bath was great, lots of hot...

Stayed at the Lizard King for 5 nights in one of the suites with kitchen and A/C. Very awesome to have A/C! The room was spacious and very clean. The service here is amazing! Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely, friendly lady named Hannah who helped us out throughout our entire stay. Hannah was extremely pleasant, helpful and...

We stayed for 3 nights at Lizard King and enjoyed our stay. It has spacious, clean rooms and hot water showers. A big plus is the included breakfast (egg, pancakes, coffee, tea, fruit, etc.) and the swimming pool. We think, however, that compared to other places the prices are slightly too high. At our time of stay, they were loudly...

There's a lot of nice places to stay in Puerto Viejo and this is a great one. We (friend and I) stayed here for 2 nights in a suite on the bottom floor and it was a great experience. The room was a great value, spacious, clean and well equipped. The pool area is simple, but has a nice feel...

We stayed two nights. The rooms are airy which is good for being cool but not so much for quietness between guests. We weren't bothered but the neighbor next door strongly hinted that our music bothered him. We were sitting outside our room by the pool enjoying a glass of wine at 5 pm. ;) We did not need air...

The WONDERFUL and friendly front-desk attendant accommodated us very last minute and was so helpful with advice on every aspect of our stay. We were in the non-deluxe rooms, which are quite basic, but very clean. It was hot there, but the property is shaded and between that and the fans, we didn't really need a/c. I would definitely stay...

Stayed at the Lizard King in early October 2016. Rooms were basic, we upgraded to the air conditioned room for $20 a night. Very well worth the money. Beds were comfortable, front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Got great restaurant recommendations from the front desk. Had the pool to ourselves most of the time. Rented bikes from the hotel,...
