Stayed here with my friend while having dental work done in CR. An elegant B & B, with a knowledgeable, experienced owner, Ginette Laurin, who provided excellent recommendations, assisted us with all of our needs and wishes. The house is lovely and spotlessly clean. Beautiful furnishings/decor. Forget the big impersonal hotels. This place made the trip exquisite! (The included breakfasts...

Went to Casa Laurin for one night, ended up staying for two weeks, while getting my dental work done. Had the pleasure of meeting both Ginettes, and yes they will make a smoothie for you if you need one. Thanks for making my Dental visit to Costa Rica a good experience. Will be back in November.

Our hostess, Ginette #2, made our 7 day stay at the Casa Lauren seem as if we were coming home. You could rest by the pool, read a book or go out on adventures in Costa Rica and Ginette #2 would assist you in all areas. Need transportation, information on tours, restaurants, or even help figuring out the currency, she...

The most friendly, enjoyable B &B that I have ever visited. Ginette can't do enough for her guests. She is like visiting family. Her breakfasts are made to order and the conversations with guests are so interesting. It is a home away from home and one that I love returning to.

I have stayed at Casa Laurin's B & B several times! Ginette Laurin is the owner and there are not enough good things I can say about her attentiveness to her visitors. She arranges doctors appointments, arranges transportation, sets up travel destinations/activities, makes special meals on request, laundry at a small fee, etc. I would not stay anywhere else while...

This is our must stay place in Escazu as we travel to our home in Costa Rica at least twice a year. Ginette is the epitome of what a B&B hostess should be.
