I didn't actually stay at this hotel, but while waiting for our puddle jumper the owner, Drew was dropping a client off and was so kind to take us to hit hotel to use the bathroom and grab a coffee and cookies.

Laguna Mar is a slice of heaven; imagine a white, spacious, art- deco, modern hotel with a flare of South Beach, Florida. The entire Costa Rican staff is gracious and accommodating from the beginning to end of your stay. Prepare to receive a cold, citrus drink upon your arrival followed by assistance with your luggage, delivered to your room. The...

This small boutique hotel is just the perfect place to relax. The staff is attentive without being bothersome. Michael greeted us with a cocktail and took our suitcases to the rooms. The chef, Pablo is a shinning star. I have gluten issues and he pull together a shrimp rice noodle recipe right out of his hat especially for me! I...

Our trip to Hotel Laguna Mar and Costa Rica surpassed my high expectations in every way. Drew and his staff were nothing but friendly, hospitable and engaging. The hotel was spotless (which is extremely important to me) and the food was gourmet. One afternoon, beers appeared poolside! And, upon arrival, Michael greeted us with a celebratory drink :-) The hotel...

Drew and his staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Pablo made every meal special (I am already craving the Caribbean fish) and, after a week, we couldn't imagine not coming back to this fantastic hotel. While the roads pose a challenge to many travelers, we had the great fortune of being one of the...

“I think the rooms on the upper floor would be better than the ones on the ground just for the view and added privacy. Our room was right beside the pool and on ground level with the walkway, so we had to keep the curtains drawn most times.”
