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...

Following a last minute accommodation referral from a friend , we called upon Ginette for a one night stay at her B&B late one afternoon . Not only was Ginette very attentive to our needs, but even provided exactly the room we...

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. If you are in Costa Rica for dental or medical reasons, this is a great place to recuperate. Casa Laurin is clean, comfortable and offers a relaxing...

Well, the surgery itself wasn't fun, but Ginette is such a caring person and great B&B hostess that the recuperating was much less stressful than it would have been anywhere else. I stayed here twice -- once in November 2015 when I went to San Jose for some fairly major dental work (all-day surgery and implants) -- and then again...

It is always so nice to hear about guests who express their thanks in such a nice way. Being the hostess of a B&B where many guests come for dental work, I have learned to help them in a kind and efficient manner which makes them feel safe and well cared for. Any gesture that comes from the heart is...

Thank you for posting your review.

We stayed at Casa Laurin for 11 days, and found it a very comfortable home away from home. Ginette is a warm and extremely helpful hostess. Every day was started with a delicious breakfast and great conversation. She always offered to help with transportation and/or plans for sightseeing.

I was at Casa Laurin while in Costa Rica to buy a house. The room was large and comfortable, the food excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. There are multiple excellent choices for dining nearby. The proprietor also provided useful advice about moving to Costa Rica.
