  • 2.0.Poor

    DO NOT RECOMMEND. Inform yourself before booking

    The view is beautiful at sunset. The pool is nice but a bit small. Check-in was fine. We got a quick tour of the place. The room clearly had not been used in a long time as the water pipes were full of air when we first turned on the tap and the water was a bit brown. It must've been shut off for a while (more on that later). They have a romantic second floor area for dinner with tables set up for couples. The problem is they also allow outside guests to come in to share in this area and we unfortunately were stuck next to a family of 15 playing musical chairs as they were rotating between a table of 2 set up next to us and a couch seating area farther away. With 10 kids running around, we felt like we were eating at Disney World. There was no respect for personal space and no masks being worn as they ran around our table in circles. We left and came back to eat later after this party had finished. We barely slept because our neighbours above were stomping around past midnight and starting again at 5am. The insulation is not good. Now for what upset me the most and changed my rating from a 3-4 to a 1: Check out is at 11am. They said they'd let us know if we could do late check out but never did. Anyways, they cut off the water to the room at 11am sharp. I wanted to have a quick shower before hitting the road for a 5hr car ride only to find out I was covered in soap with no more running water in the room. I had to run to the pool to finish my shower. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We loved our stay at Lagarta Lodge. Despite the fact that when we first arrived at the lodge late in the evening, the room we stayed in had a couple of cleanliness issues. The next morning Erwin, the front desk receptionist was extremely helpful and took care of the situation and gave us a room upgrade which we appreciated. The lodge sits on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Nosara River and the jungle. The views are breathtaking! The restaurant had great breakfast options which was included with our stay and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The waiters were very friendly and attentive. The property grounds are beautiful and well kept. They have a Spa onsite and Judy gave me a wonderful massage. The staff were all super nice and helpful. The road up to the lodge is extremely rough and bumpy so I recommend having a four wheel drive vehicle.
