About The Gilded Iguana Surf Hotel

Overview

The Gilded Iguana Surf Hotel is located in Nosara, Costa Rica and sits directly along the gorgeous white sands. It is unique among the “surf” destinations as it has not been developed and is like a time capsule from the early years of the surf trend in the 1960s. That is not to say that the hotel is a time capsule, too.

It is simply that guests get to savor the natural beauty of the region, as the hotel sits only a few hundred feet from Playa Guiones, a top surfing beach protected by firm environmental laws. The hotel is also dedicated to eco-friendliness and offers an off-the-grid destination.

The hotel is meant to be an authentic destination, and because of that it has all that guests need for a stay. There is a popular restaurant, free WiFi, daily breakfast services, outdoor pools for all ages, a Jacuzzi, event spaces, a concierge, a gift shop, shuttle services, and an array of options for active guests. These include surf school, mountain biking tours, and more. There is also the spa and yoga classes to enjoy.

The restaurant and bar at the hotel have been popular in the area since the 1980s and focus on live music, unique drinks, and fresh, local foods. Vegetarian and vegan foods are always an option and there are even days when brunch is available. For those who want to relax in their rooms, the restaurant delivers to hotel guests.

Rooms range from Surf rooms to Premium and Surfer Suites. All are designed with indoor and outdoor showers, separate living spaces and direct access to the outdoors.

If getting away from it all and enjoying world-class surfing appeals to you, the Gilded Iguana Surf Hotel in Costa Rica is a good choice.
