I have absolutely nothing negative, and many positive things to say of this retreat. So let's start: Room (#3): large and spacious with an oversized generous bathroom. Absolutely no smell of mold, thank goodness. Beautifully decorated and with a nice view of the manicured grounds. Comfy chairs available outside room door Grounds: Wow. The gazebo, the very clean pool, flowers,... More

While this might not be the easiest place to get to due to the rough road in, the delightful rooms and Maria and Michael, the wonderful hosts, make it worthwhile if staying in Las Lajas. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet and the grounds are beautifully landscaped. The hosts are from Italy and provide a gracious welcome and charming... More

Four of us (2 couples) spent the weekend with Maria & Michele at the sweetest B&B. We were greeted with big smiles and lots of energy. Both of them speak Italian, Spanish and English (and perhaps others) The rooms were immaculate and spacious with beautiful Italian linens - which were ironed! Modern and immaculate comfortable private bathroom within the room.... More

Our family of 4 enjoyed our 4 night stay in rooms 1 & 3 at Casa Laguna. The property is very clean and well cared for and located a short distance from the largest, most sparsely populated beach we ever visited. We rarely saw another person on the beach until we walked about 15 minutes to where the restaurants are.... More

Lovely Italian owner, however the room was a small doublel and the air conditioning was not effective in cooling the room. The worst thing was that the sheets on the bed seemed to be made of nylon and were pilled all over. Dinner was basic and expensive 10$ for a bowl of pasta ,with a little very average bolognese sauce.... More

We are so sorry that you felt "disappointed". This is our first bad review in 6 years and we were a little surprised. We are totally available to our guests to solve any problem that can be during the stay... But you don't ask anything when you were here. We have just cotton sheets, no nylon ever...

It isn't all that easy to find, and it is about 2km off the end of the pavement where the road meets Playa Las Lajas, but it is worth it. We stayed four nights and really enjoyed the room, the value, the healthy breakfast, the helpful hostess Maria, and the beach. There isn't much to do in this area but... More

Maria and Michele are very welcoming and the location is perfect for a quiet beach holiday. They are 1.5 km along a dirt road behind the beach, which means that there are no crowds here; the walk to the beach was only 5 minutes and most of the time we were the only ones there. The beach was beautiful -... More

I had a great time staying with Maria and Michele. They went out of their way to accommodate me traveling solo without a car, and we spent many hours B. S. ing in an Italo-Span-English mixture. So fun! I was glad that I was still able to understand Italian, but speaking it came out a strange SpItaliano half the time.... More
