I usually don't take the time to write reviews about my travel experiences however this hotel is an exception. All I could say was "WOW" when I walked up to this beautiful hotel from the entry way! We were greeted immediately by the staff with a couple of refreshing cocktails! During our stay, the service was impeccable! Kudos to Michael!... More

We stayed here only one night but wow! Great room, staff is really nice and helpful, food was great. Hotel is in a really nice location, easy to get to, great for exploring the area and day trips, comfy beds too! We'd been a moto trip and it was nice to stay here and chill. Definitely want to stay here... More

Just returned from my first trip to Costa Rica and had a blast! Flew into San Jose, and then drove to Laguna Mar hotel. Was welcomed by a very kind staff (offering us drinks - thank you!). The hotel took my breath away - it was beautiful. Had dinner there most nights, and was introduced to Pablo, the EXCELLENT chef.... More

If you're looking to experience the beauty of Costa Rica's western coast and its magnificent beaches, book a room at Hotel Laguna Mar in Javilla, Costa Rica. I stayed there during the first week of December (2012) and it was one of the best vacations I've ever had! Located in remote Guanacaste, the hotel provides a convenient ‘home base’ to... More

I spent a week at Laguna Mar (first week of December 2012) and loved every minute of it. The hotel is nestled in a quiet neighborhood in the remote town of Javilla which is a beautiful, laidback, piece of paradise. We flew into Punta Islita airport via Nature Air from San Jose, CR. The airport is about a 30 minute... More

I happened upon Laguna Mar quite by accident late one night while traveling along the Pacific coast of Guanacaste in CR- This is a new hotel with a beautiful swimming pool, bar area, and dining room- The owner, Mr. Andrew Callahan is very accommodating and takes all of the steps to make sure that your room is comfortable, the cuisine...

We had the absolute best time at Laguna Mar! We stayed here while dropping off our daughter for a long term internship with Pertoma.org. She was accepted to be a research assistance for the group's sea turtle conservation project, and was kicking off on a 3 month stint. While at Laguna Mar, we experienced the most dedicated, and attentive staff!... More
