A budget property but the location is great, and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Rooms not sparkling, but clean and decent. Air conditioning worked well but don't expect a hot shower, no hot water! But it is really warm there anyway...

I recently stayed at Laura's House through a booking with Deep Blue Diving, at Playa de Coco. It perfectly served my needs with very clean rooms and grounds and a short stroll to the beach for a walk or a SCUBA pick up. The breakfast (two choices: tipica or contenental) was an excellent start of the day. Either pick was... More

Me and my friends stayed at Laura's B&B on Good Friday. We were lucky to find a room the night before (Easter Holidays are very high season!) but I have to say I started to get a bit disappointed with their service since before arrival. The lady I spoke with over the phone had no information whatsoever on anything, and... More

I randomly picked Laura's House to stay on my vacation and I'm so glad I did. It was the cleanest place I have ever stayed! The people are super friendly and accommodating! I would recommend Laura's to anyone wanting to stay in Playas del Coco! It is close to everything!

Very nice large clean room with hot water, A/C, fan, screens over windows, includes delicious breakfast, has a cold water pool and only one block from the beach and a little ways from town but walkable. It's quiet there, only a rooster and the ocean waves to greet you in the morning. We really liked the people there.

I am a long time traveler and infrequent poster to Trip Advisor. This is my first negative review. It’s also the first in which I’ve taken time away from my vacation to post. But my family was treated with such callous disregard by Laura’s Guest House I felt compelled to let you know LAURA IS UNPROFESSIONAL AND, FAR WORSE, UNCARING.... More

We very much enjoy our stay at the bed and breakfast. The breakfast was great with fruit and unlimited coffee. We really appreciated Rosita's fine service. The room was well kept. My only complaint is that the airconditioner poured cold air on the double bed so the person in that bed froze if the conditioner was kept on. If turned... More

We stayed for 2 nights with 4 persons, 2 adults, 2 children. The pool was a hit! Rooms are clean, breakfast is OK, location super. (100 mtrs away from main street where it is very noisy.) Not all of the staff does speak English but they are very helpfull anyway)

This is the forth year we have stayed at Laura's House. We love Laura, her family and staff. They are so welcoming and extremely helpful and caring. The rooms are always comfortable and clean. The swinging chairs are great for just sitting and relaxing and the pool is a great place to cool off in. The location is perfect. You... More

I have mixed feelings not just about this place but the whole area of Playas de Coco. We stayed there only one day and one night (even though planned more) and left more south (Montezuma) because we didn't like the beaches (too black and dirty), the atmosphere (fires made in the street by locals, dirt, big holes in the street...
