Fantastic food, drinks, and service. Gabrielle was awesome! It is near a wider portion of the Osa gulf and clearly gets a better surf crashing on the shore. The sounds is fantastic background noise. A volleyball net and nice beach are just past a well manicured lawn. Food was great and lots of drinks. It's a bit difficult to find...

My husband and I would travel to the ends of the Earth for our niece, so we did just that to attend her wedding at the Iguana Lodge. What an amazing experience it was! Under cover of the surrounding rainforest, we arrived to the fanfare of scarlet macaws overhead and, after unpacking, a feast was served by friendly Lodge owners,...

A beautifully secluded property on the beach. Gracious hosts, friendly and helpful staff, and terrific food. Also a great pool area with an elevated yoga deck. We were there for a wedding and they really did a commendable job. Lots of activities are offered, including an fascinating nature walk. However, if you're expecting A/C, this is not the place for...

We visited in March 2015 for our honeymoon. We booked an upper-level casita and the honeymoon package including 3 excursions (dolphin watching/snorkel, mangrove kayak, and massages). Neither my husband or I had stayed at a place like this before and we loved it. We loved the dinners and actually enjoyed the other travelers so much that we chose to eat...

I will remember this vacation to Iguana lodge with mixed emotions. We have been to Costa Rica before and wanted to visit the Osa Peninsula on this trip. The lodge looked like it was our place to relax before a busy summer season. It has a beautiful beach, a yoga pavilion and trip advisor reviews spoke of good food. We...

This is a well-run, friendly, and professional "rustic resort" a few miles from town located right on the beach. I was there, with a friend, for a mix of wildlife viewing and tropical relaxation, in my first visit to Costa Rica (though over the decades I've been to remote tropical resorts elsewhere). The location is close enough to town that...

Nestled on the lush grounds, on the gulf side of the OSA, is a collection of rooms and casitas, pool, yoga spaces, spa and chock full of birds and animals. Hosts are welcoming, food is created with care, and you are catered to a relaxing holiday. Saw dolphins, sloth, raptors, experienced warm tropical waters. Highly recommend.

We decided to go there, because the sea there is more calm than at the other nearby options. We were not disappointed. Would not recommend the place for a serious surfer. Pool is great, food very good, staff always friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend reserving a casita, the alternative is a small room in the clubhouse, which we...

We spent three nights at Iguana Lodge on our return from Carate beach area. The lodge was very comfortable and low-key, the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The forested grounds make way to a nice grassy area and then the beach. Boards are available for those wanting to body surf - waves not big. There is also a swimming pool...

Spent ten days in Costa Rica in 2013. All of our resort stays were very good. The only thing I would change is to extend my stay at the Iquana Lodge. Very intimate and restful. Bird watching hike was awesome. I would have like to safari in Corcovado National Park and do some deep sea fishing. I guess I will...
