My stay at Casitas LazDivaz was a beautiful experience that I would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to Costa Rica. I stayed here in January 2014 on a romantic getaway. The casitas are located on a beach front property. Hammocks hanging in the palm trees overlooking the beach greet you when you arrive. These hammocks were perfect for...

A place feels like home because of the people there - this is definitely true for our stay at Casitas LazDivaz. Playa Samara was the last stop for my husband and I. During our three nights stay, Sara (the owner of this place) invited us to watch the Samara Sunset with a drink at her wooden benches near the ocean....

Lazdivaz 'the divas' is the perfect tranquil spot, even in the midst of the high season craziness. Located on the beach, and fronted by hammocks hung on palm trees for guests to use. Sara, the owner, is warm and extremely knowledgeable and is happy to give recommendations on activities and restaurants. She's also a stellar birder, and may be nice...

Laz Divaz is a very special place with wonderful little casitas, a gorgeous beach and beautiful sunsets. Samara is a nice little village with a couple of good restaurants (just ask Sara!) and friendly people. The casitas are full of wonderfully detailed woodwork made by the host herself and you can feel her love to the place and for having...

My bride and I spent several nights at Laz Divaz and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Roberto, Alvaro, and Andres were terrific hosts and the location is terrific. My only complaint would be about the howler monkeys that woke us up one morning fighting in the vicinity. If you like something off the beaten path and are open to something out of...

My girlfriend and I were the first guests to stay at Laz Divaz under the new management of Alvero, Andres and Roberto and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Playa Samara. We chose it based on the previous glowing reviews on here and, from our experience there, the great reputation created by...

I am 41 year old and I have travelled to over 30 countries in four continents (Australia is on the check list!). I have never made a review in the past, but the experience we had in LazDivaz compelled me to register and write. First of all, LazDivaz runs under a new direction. Roberto, Andres and Alvaro took over at...

My friend and I spent weeks trying to find the perfect beachfront spot to lounge and do nothing in Costa Rica. I came across the thread of rave reviews for Laz Divaz here on TripAdvisor and I have to say they were spot on. This place could not get any better. The rooms were beyond clean, well designed and cool,...

Terrific beach location. Simple clean cottage in a very friendly and natural atmosphere that provided a great escape from a hectic city life. Sara is a transplanted New Englander like me and she's gone to great lengths to put together a comfortable place to stay on the beach. Her description of amenities offered is right on. We stayed two relaxing...
