“Outstanding lodge, amazing views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

My wife and children stayed here during spring break, and we absolutely loved the lodge. Beautiful views and an easy walk down to the beaches. Our room was nice, and we had monkeys outside in the trees every morning. Really neat, and the kids loved it. The Swiss owners were very hospitable and quite nice, and they made sure all of our requests were taken care of. Food was quite good, and the lodge is quite the place to be for the magical sunsets every evening. Would recommend this as a place to stay if you make it to Nosara.

Our family had a wonderful 6 nights at Lagarta Lodge. Amadeo and Regina, the owners, are warm and gracious, knowledgable about the area, and run a very clean hotel, at which everything is well maintained and the service is impeccable. Great food is eaten in an open air restaurant with views of the awe inspiring sunsets. The buildings are a traditional white Spanish with terra cotta floors, and the owners have added their own European influence to them. The pool area is a nice size, and an upper view spot with lounge chairs and hammock were another great sunset or bird watching place.

15 minute walk to two different very nice almost empty beaches and right on its own nature reserve, the location is excellent.

All in all very highly recommended!

All I knew was that I wanted my family of four to have an authentic Costa Rica holiday and not stay in a grand hotel with a lot of tourists...and because of TA and the reviews about Nosara, we found just that. The views, the owners, the huge communal table for breakfast open air, our balcony and the monkeys...enough said. Simply gorgeous.

We entirely enjoyed our stay at Largarta Lodge. With a beautiful view over the ocean and river from our private balcony, a lovely breeze more often than not, listening to the sounds of the waves and the birds, howler monkeys and other creatures, watching the sunset -- what more could a person ask for! The owners Regina and Amadeo were very welcoming and helpful, and the atmosphere among the guests was friendly. The meals were delicious. Very clean rooms and surroundings. We also appreciated the environmentally friendly focus of the lodge. A great place to stay all-around!

This was one of the very best places we stayed during a month in Costa Rica.
The views from the restaurant, sunset bar and the rooms are nothing short of stunning. Regina and Amadeo are excellent, friendly, professional hosts and the high standards here reflect their Swiss origins. They are rightly proud of their Eco credentials. Rooms are spacious and airy and the food is very good, especially the delicious breakfasts cooked to order. Cocktails watching the sunset was a magical experience. The hotel has its own nature reserve, lovely to explore early in the morning. It's a fifteen minute walk to the nearest beach, and ideally you would have a car to stay here to explore Nosara and further afield. If only we could have extended our stay in this beautiful location.

A great, well run little hotel with an amazing view. Fantastic sunsets from the sunset bar. The couple who run the lodge are very professional and helpful. They are on top of everything. From the lodge we did a paddleboard tour of the nearby river. We also visited the Wildlife Sanctuary and went surfing.

The only downside was our communications leading up to our stay. Emails often took days to get a reply and it took more effort to book a room than we felt was necessary.

After a few days near Tamarindo, my husband and I were ready for the quiet jungle surroundings at Lagarta Lodge. We stayed in room #8 which was high on the hillside. (Getting the luggage there was a workout and I was grateful for the assistance.) Once in our room, it felt like a treehouse. A spacious deck overlooking the Reserve was very inviting; I could have spent three days there but we were in Nosara for suring and exploring. The room was very clean and moderately appointed. Basic, no nonsense and comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic, loved all the fresh fruit. Coffee is ready to go early, but the kitchen doesn't start cooking until 7:30am. We were often ready for breakfast earlier than that and they accommodated us as best they could. We had one dinner there and it was just ok. Lots of other restaurants to try and we weren't there for the food anyway. I would gladly return to Lagarta Lodge.
