My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights mid August during the green season and it was an amazing hotel in every way. The food is incredible. Literally everything we ate was delicious! Can't go wrong with any dish for dinner. The rooms are extremely clean and cozy. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful in every way. Cici,... More

This hotel is a unique experience of which you will take away and think back and talk about for many years after. The way it is set and effortlessly blends in with the nature around it really does hit you as soon as you walk in. There are a lot of positives about staying in this hotel and the effort... More

We started in San Jose and the best part of our adventure was In San Miguel where we found Hotel Laguna Mar. You will enjoy some of the best 5 star food prepared by chef Pablo who will come out and ask you want you want to eat and introduce himself, I'd go back just to eat. Pablo even went... More

True to other reviews this hotel is off the beaten or paved path. As is most anything in costa rica worth seeing. Do not be discouraged, even in rain you can make it in a non 4wd vehicle. Just slow down and enjor the scenery a little more. Property is wonderful and is a reflection of the staff without exception!The... More

We stayed here after we found out the flying scorpion down the road was closed up. We arrived a little before midnight and the caretaker was very rude/grumpy (despite the "we are happy to serve guests 24 hours per day" sign at the door). She would not turn the AC on for us that night because it was "too difficult,"... More

I am sorry your arrival at the hotel, in the middle of the night and without gave us notice, had not enabled us to receive you in the best conditions. Indeed opening the hotel yard at night to 6 unknowns is not easy because we mind our guests safety. Moreover a power failure in our air conditioning system could not... More

This was a lovely boutique hotel in the hills of costa rica. You really need a rental car to come and go. Beach is not far. Small but refreshing pool. The owners are lovely and can plan a variety of activities. I traveled as a single mother with my two daughters ages 14 and 6. We felt very safe and... More

My wife and I stayed here back in March and based our decision upon the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! The vibe is just very laid back and it seems like one big family out in Playa San Miguel. The area is like going back in time where it is very peaceful and everyone knows each other. Although...
