I’m a business owner in Guanacaste and have lived here since 2003 and was compelled to advise people that this is by far the best getaway for everyone. Set on a palm covered cliff side over looking a open ocean reef, and Playa blanca, a small secluded white sand beach. The rooms are spacious, the restaurant was excellent, and service was outstanding! I recommend spending time here with family, friends, and definitely romantic interests

Another happy accident. We stayed at a neighboring “B&B” the previous night…that did not serve breakfast so we walked down the beach to Hotel Iguanazul and had a delightful breakfast; liked the grounds and when we had to stay over another night for car repairs we checked in here  Upon arrival my spouse tripped and went splat…no serious injury but scrapes and the staff were right there, concerned and helpful. They brought first aid supplies and sent extras on with us to our room. This was the first of several over and beyond the calls of kindness and attention shown us, and others as we observed the next couple days.
The hotel has changed ownership recently and rather than close for needed renovations, due to demand they remained open so there are some signs of on-going work, cleanup and upgrading–but it seems to be happening steadily without impinging upon guests too much. We found the rooms to be a bit spartan of furnishings, but upon request chairs were quickly arranged–having been overlooked in there re-decorating I think.
The pool is large, attractive and the “centerpiece” of the courtyard area sided by bar and al-fresco restaurant dining, so a popular gathering spot looking directly out to the beach. They would benefit from adding some sun-shelters about the pool, but there are a couple covered picnic tables with hammocks further down the hill toward the beach–but grab quick, they are popular! Some other amenities like pool table, chess board are there; and the free wi-fi worked fine.
Meals were above average in quality and presentation, and bit below the mean for costs in similar establishments nearby.
Given the shear pleasantness of the facility and setting we chose to stay an extra day just for the pleasure of it. The real attraction at this time is the care and attention from staff, and the clear signs that the new management is moving to make this facility shine for the dollar charged. Only a bit of time will confirm, perhaps watch for more recent reviews, but our stay was a delight as it was, and suspect the next will be even better.
