We used Casa Laurin as our base while we traveled Costa Rica. Ginette is the lady in charge, and we haven't had so much help in a foreign country in a long time. She knows her way around Costa Rica, and also how to operate a fine B&B. The place was quiet, but close to public transportation, so we could... More

It is a lovely home and the service is excellent. Breakfast was made even more pleasant with the addition of the other guests. So much nicer than sitting along in a restaurant. And the food was cooked to order. What more can you ask for? My room had a king size bed and nice appointments. Consider yourself luck too if... More

We then moved to room we had booked which although smaller was more than adequate for our needs also... More

Ginette Laurin, the woman who runs Casa Laurin, treated my wife and me professionally, punctually, generously, and graciously. We were blown away by the way she helped us adapt to a culture we knew nothing of prior to our visit. She called for taxis, make phone calls to tour operators, prepared fantastic breakfasts, befriended us, and even called a tour... More

This is a wonderful, friendly, and welcoming B & B and close to many shops, restaurants, etc. in the Escazu area. The accommodations are very nice - quiet, clean, and well-maintained, and Ginette is a delight - so very helpful. We enjoyed our short time there, and will definitely return.
