We have been traveling through Costa Rica for 3 weeks and this was one of the best places we stayed at! There are three reasons why it's a first class experience: 1. The owner Sara makes you feel so welcomed. We had great talks at the beach, always felt well taken care of and just felt like staying with a... More

We stayed at LazDivaz for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Our casita was facing the beach, and we loved hearing the sound of the sea. Free coffee and fresh orange juice for breakfast, we added muffins bought at the local bakery and it was delicious! Sara was great company too! She told us about the nice... More

My husband and I came to Samara for a friend's wedding. We expected to swim, relax and enjoy the local food and nature. What we didn't expect was to be so utterly charmed by our accommodation and host. Staying at LazDivaz was a truly special experience, from the beautiful and unique casitas designed and built with loving detail, to the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed with Sara in the summer of 2014 and had a wonderful time exploring Samara and the surrounding areas. Sara was welcoming and friendly, and helped us to plan our days by providing excellent recommendations for food and beaches! We were able to walk both the beach and the back roads into town and felt safe... More

My husband and I stayed at Casitas Laz Divaz last week to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. From the first correspondence to the last day of our trip, communication with Sara, our warm, funny, and hospitable host, was excellent. She was happy to answer any questions leading up to our trip, provided thorough and descriptive directions from the Liberia... More

We recently returned from 11 days in Costa Rica and our stay in Playa Samara at Laz Divaz was a highlight of the trip! It was wonderfully relaxing, the casitas are very comfortable and clean, the location on the beach cannot be beat, and our host Sara was the best. Sara is attentive but never overbearing and she provided info... More

My husband and I had such a blast. We stayed for 8 nights. - Enchanting location, right on the beach, with lusious gardens and trees around the casitas, really felt like paradise. 5 min walk along the beach to the small village of Samara which has a great easy beach town vibe to it. - Quaint casitas with everything you...

We stayed at Laz Divaz for the first time in March 2007 and have returned almost every year since then. Sara is an amazing host, the casitas are perfect and clean, you have a true feeling of privacy, and you are virtually on the beach. We cannot praise Laz Divas and Sara enough. If you don't love your time here... More

Casitas LazDivaz was my boyfriend and I's favorite part of our CR trip. We stayed at 2 other hotels while in Samara but they couldn't compare. When we first arrived we were greeted warmly and shown to our casita- named Marlene Dietrich, in the front. It was immaculately clean, had a nice bathroom with American sewer hookup (you can flush...

Laz Divaz has the perfect location right by the beach. They have created a lovely space with hammocks and you have shade under the palm trees to read your book. What a little paradise! You can walk to restaurants very easy, so it is all super convinient. Sarah is a great host with a lovely personality. She makes sure you... More
