Really enjoyed staying with Ginette Laurin. She is very welcoming and can give you a practical guide on touring Costa Rica. We really enjoyed going to the Mercado Central with her and buying souvenirs at great prices. This market is not touristy, has reasonable prices and carries all the souvenirs you need. The B&B is fairly close to downtown and... More

We are in the process of building a house in Costa Rica, which necessitates many trips down there. Casa Laurin is my absolute favorite place to stay while there. Why? It starts with Ginette, who always makes you feel welcome, arranging transport from the airport, joining you for dinner and just making you feel at home. Then there is the... More

Thank you Katy for your nice review. It is always a pleasure to see repeat guests whom we consider as part of our 'large family'. Somebody once said that people come to a B&B as guests and they leave as friends. This is the best reward that a host can get. More

If you are going to be traveling to SJO then a stay here is a must! This location is close to the highway and shopping and not a bad drrive (about 20 minutes) to the airport. So much nicer than the chain at the airport. Breakfast is made to order and you pick what you want to have. The beds... More

Always greeted with a warm welcoming smile from Ginette. We were shown to our suite over looking the city, what an incredible view. The entire B&B was comfortable, from the common areas to the pool and the kitchen! There is storage for all your items after a shopping trip, even a refrigerator upstairs in the common area. Ginette's has a... More

I didn't pick Casa Laurin -- the friend I was traveling with did. But she couldn't have made a better choice. Ginette sets new standards for "taking care" of guests. From arranging pickup at the airport to coordinating tours, food orders, and even accompanying me to the ER when I had a medical issue -- I felt in good and... More

We chose Casa Laurin on the advice of a friend who had stayed there several years ago. Wow! so glad we did! Secure, peaceful, tastefully appointed comfort, each room lovelier than the last. Conveniently located in upscale Escazu, close to businesses and restaurants. That being said, the very best feature of Casa Laurin is the proprietress Ginette. She assists accomodatingly... More

My fiancée and I were in San Jose, Costa Rica for medical tourism and the clinic recommended Casa Laurin B&B. We had been in San Jose earlier in 2013 and our accommodations at a different hotel were less than desirable. Casa Laurin on the other hand was a pleasure. The beds were extremely comfortable (which is hard to find in... More
