The best hotel on our trip in Costa Rica. We had booked Standard room, but we got Superior. We were lucky.
The room was spacious and clean. Beautiful view from terrace to ocean.
Interesting bathroom - Nontraditional view of the ocean when you are in the shower.
Wifi on the room. Breakfast was traditional and very tasty.
The part of the hotel is Natural Reserve with trails. Many animals and plants. Staff was nice.
Owners were very nice, caring and allways helpful.
Bad roads in and around Nosara - worse access to shop due to unpaved roads.
Worse access to beach, but beach nice and clean.
We were very satisfied. This is a place we hope to visit again.

We (2 families, 4 adults, 4 children) have spent three nights at Lagarta Lodge, because we wanted to be close to Ostional to watch the Turtle arribada. We were very satisfied. The lodge is situated on a hill overlooking the Lagarta-river, the nature reserve and the pristine beaches of the region. There was always a breeze on the terrace, where we enjoyed a very generous and varied breakfast and delicious dinners. The beaches are not too far away, but your own transport is recommended. The managers are devoted, generous, multi-lingual, professional, quality-oriented, environment conscious, innovative, personal, in short: they are SWISS and they let you feel welcome no matter where you come from or how long you can stay. They are participating in a programme for sustainable tourism, controlled and certified by the Costa Rican government. There is a direct access to the private nature reserve on the grounds - with a little luck you can spot monkeys, squirrels and a huge variety of birds.
Rooms are very spacious, super clean and comfortable. No TV, so plenty of time to sleep, relax, meditate, read and listen to the birds, waves and wind.

Room Tip: superior rooms have A/C.

We've visited Lagarta Lodge a few times before and will no doubt visit again.
There is no prettier view that we have seen anywhere in Costa Rica.
The owners are very helpful in recommending activities in the surrounding area.
They helped us arrange a private boat tour on two rivers as wall as an early morning visit to a neighboring area to watch the sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.
The food there is super and they have some REALLY nice, new rooms since we were there last.
Suites #8&9 have probably the best views.
The road to Nosara have improved some since our last visit but still have some rough spots. When you get to the lodge you'll forget and forgive the roads. It is a beautiful spot that we recommend highly.

Room Tip: Check out suites 8 or 9 for a SUPER view.

If you are a nature lover, this is your place. That most amazing botanical gardens at your footsteps. We had monkeys at our balconies and spotted the white faced monkey just up the tree. The restaurant and service are second to none. This is were all the locals come for happy hour, now I know why. Breathtaking views, unlike anything you have ever seen. Just wished we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: They have a new building with updated rooms that are spectacular!

Lagarta Lodge is on a great location to begin with. The sunset views from their sunset bar, or from any of their balconies are one of my best memories. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very affordable. The staff was always smiling and providing great service. The couple that owns it make sure you have everything you need, they make you feel at home and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The food is delicious and the fact that is right next to the river biological reserve is a great plus! But once again, the best thing about this hotel is their service.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view overlooking the river and the ocean are wonderful.
