When we arrived it was 7pm there was an elderly couple enjoying a nice dinner with the smell of diesel from the working backhoe 10 feet away. (The pipes burst that afternoon - it happens in Costa Rica quite often because their water system is old. I wasn't upset by that. Instead, I was upset with the fact that the... More

Simple, Clean and close to Samara. A beautiful and sparsely populated (when we were there at least) beach is about a 5-6 minute walk from the room! Lau and staff are amazing, good breakfast! Beds are a bit primitive for my tastes (I sleep on a memory-foam bed at home, so this was a pretty hard), but not unusual compared... More

This place is way to expensive and we didnt found a heartly welcome. At the begining they even didnt found our reservation and we had to proof by our email that we reserved. Room was very small and in a bad condition, especially the shower. Also we got dirty towels. I cannot recomnend this place.

Lautaro S, Propietario at La Posada Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

First of all I'm surprised to find such a poor rating when all people love the place, I think you have to learn more about place you are visiting, this is not a hotel chain, we work hard for our business and only 6 rooms is not easy to keep a property throughout the year. You know that guests must... More

My wife and I stayed at La Posada Bed and Breakfast for a week over Christmas and New Years. If you want to escape all the tourists in Samara, just drive up the road a few more miles to Playa Carillo and spend some time with Lautaro and the gang. First of all the beach is wonderful. A mile and... More

Cosy hotel, you feel like at home. Great staff. Home made food (try the pasta and the lobster tails). It's very close to the beach (40 m). Great for couples and families. They offer laundry service, they have bikes to rent and tours to offer. It's very clean and quiet. Near the Posada there is a small supermarket, an argentine... More

Nice little rooms, cozy. Great for couples, Nice and fresh breakfast. Dinner is also great, we ate tuna steak. You need a car to stay in this place if you want to be able to go buy water, groceries or to a restaurant

The atmosphere and the fantastic service from Laudatio and his team made our stay at La Posada an unforgettable week. It is very quiet and laid back with a fantastic view from the terrace. Laudatio is very helpful and can answer any question but is not intrusive. They have a daily cleaning service of the rooms, the beach is 2... More

This is the place to go if you need to get away from the world and escape the tourists. Lautaro is an amazing host and cooks breakfast (fruits, eggs and toast) every morning on the Terrace that overlooks Playa Carrillo. The rooms are clean, the foods great, the beach in a 1 minute walk and has no tourists maybe some... More

Lautaro is the best host we had during our round trip in Costa Rica. He has helped with any kind of question / request we had. Enjoying breakfast and sunset as well as a couple drinks on the terrace is probably the best thing to do at the entire beach! He prepares fruits, toast and eggs at everybodys convenience for...

We stayed for two nights with our family. We had one room with see view and a room without seeview. The seeview was Fantastic! To sit on the deck and watching the birds and the sunset. Breakfast was also very good. Fresh fruit and toast with eggs. Very clean! Lautaro was a perfect host. He arranged an excursion, although we... More
