Everything in here is perfect: the service, the rooms, the decoration, the food, the location! The staff is great! You always feel good and happy in here.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Once again the people make the place, it is a nice building and facilities but some great staff running it. We ended up with a flat tire and the bartender found a pump and got us sorted! Thx Andreas, really above and beyond! They have double rooms for kids accommodation, even bunk beds. Don't hesitate...

Very good place, it is quite long but the trip getting there has very nice views. Overall a very clean place. Lunch and dinner menu was excellent, we tried a few things and they were all very good and worth the price. Breakfast, just ok, continental breakfast was included but it was not good enough, I asked for ham and... More

What can I say about Hotel Laguna Mar other than to praise the chef? The hotel itself was immaculate, but the food was literally the icing on the cake. Yes, the last stretch of road from highway 21 is not what I would call smooth even for a gravel road, but the hotel and the food makes up for each... More

Such a great place to stay, it's a bit far from the beach, but the please is beatiful, rooms are small but very clean, also the staff is very nice, and the food is great, we drove here from Samara, trough a gravel road, 4x4 recommended, though we got here in a Corolla.

1. Choose wisely the route and don't trust Waze. Road is in very bad conditions. 2. Breakfast hummm... it's included, but toast and coffee it's not a very good one, food in overall it's overpriced and does not include taxes, which is not legal in CR so be careful!!

We wanted to see the turtles on the beach at night so we found the hotel just beside playa san miguel and it was a great surprise. The hotel was very nice with a lovely staff.

This hotel is definitely a hidden gem. it is only accessible by a dirt road. My wife and I took a bus, but almost every other guest had rented a vehicle. Very tranquil for those looking to get away from it all. The service is the best I have ever experienced. I called the office to let them know we... More
