Casitas LazDivaz
Ranked #4 of 32 Playa Samara B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I spent a week at Laz Divaz and do not have a single complaint.
The location is incredible, only a 10 minute walk to town and right on the beach. The beach is beautiful and quiet.
Watching the sunsets from the driftwood benches was one of the highlights of every day. The new arm rest was a great addition!
Sara was a wonderful host. She was always helpful and informative. I felt very "at home" from the moment I arrived.
The Casita I stayed in was lovely. It was well maintained and clean.
Overall my trip to Samara and stay at Laz Divaz was AMAZING!! I highly recommend that you stay at Laz Divaz when you travel to the beautiful Samara Beach.

hands down the best and most romantic part of our visit to Costa Rica! Laz Divaz was far enough away from the congested part of Samara while still a convenient walk to all restaurants and transportation AND right on the beautiful beach. We fell asleep to the sound of the Pacific Ocean and woke up to fresh coffee and orange juice. Sara, the owner and host, was informative and even helped us plan how to get to our next destination. She also stayed awake well past our scheduled check in time to make sure we arrived safely. We wish we could have stayed for months. Many many thanks to her, and we will definitely come back.

My wife and I stayed with Sara at Casitas Laz Divaz for two nights in late January 2014, and had a wonderful stay. Our casita was very bright and, along with the grounds, had a perfect beachside feel. The location is tough to beat; directly on the beach, and near enough to restaurants and shops to make it convenient, but far enough removed that it never felt crowded.

Sara welcomed us the first night with a beer on the beach for sunset (along with the inn's other guests), and gave us great recommendations for local Tico places to eat in Samara. We spent hours sitting on the beach and laying in the hammocks just in front of the inn. Sara provided fresh OJ and coffee in the morning, and it was only a short walk for breakfast at nearby restaurants. Also more wildlife than we were expecting at the beach; a troop of seven howler monkeys were hanging out in a tree right above our casita for most of our stay.

Beach was a bit dark at night, so I'd definitely recommend a flashlight (and all the better to see the hundreds of tiny crabs scurrying around the beach!). Should also note that the mosquito netting is a must, as our casita was open-air at the top, but wasn't a big problem. Overall a wonderful stay, and I hope we can make it back sometime soon!

We stayed 3 nights on our second trip to Samara. Laz Divaz is a great place. Fantastic location on the best beach in CR (or anywhere). Short walk on the beach to town and restaurants and beach bars. And excellent personalized service from start to finish. Thank you Sara!

Since the time of our last trip, the beach has grown wider because of the 2012 earthquake. So while it made the surfing less challenging, the water is flatter and shallower, and the beach is even more outstanding for walking at both high and low tide. We visited other towns on this trip, but Samara is still the best.

Room Tip: We loved the charming Tina Turner casita.

We stayed at LazDivaz for 8 nights, and it was such an excellent experience! We had stayed here 2 years ago, and thought we'd stay somewhere else to "switch it up." Although we enjoyed our 3 nights at Tico Lodge (which Sara from LazDivaz recommended), once LazDivaz had availability, we made the switch.

Between the awesome beachfront location and Sara, the super friendly and helpful owner, you CANNOT go wrong! We saw monkeys multiple times right above our casita, we had delicious coffee and orange juice (provided) every morning, and we watched sunset from the beach in front of LazDivaz every evening.

If you want recommendations for restaurants, tours, best place to buy this or that, Sara can help. She was an excellent resource for us on our trip!

If you're headed to Samara, check out LazDivaz. It's on the beach and close enough to walk to everything, but just far enough from the main strip of beach bars to feel like a private beach/jungle setting. The casitas are clean, well maintained and have modern bathrooms where you can flush your toilet paper (a rarity in Samara).

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing or romantic getaway!

My new wife and I recently stayed 4 nights at Laz Divaz B&B Hotel in Playa Samera as part of our honeymoon. We honestly can’t say enough how great our stay was there. The casita’s were well crafted, cute, comfortable and very clean. Located right on the beach and a very close walk to the town, you truly get the best of both worlds. You can hear the sounds of the waves crashing at night, and enjoy the peacefulness and view from one of the hammocks. Sara the host was absolutely great; she made us coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice each morning, and pina colada’s in the evening to enjoy the sunset. Her company was welcoming and caring, and was overall a real pleasure to be around. She really made our stay there that much better. If you’re planning a trip to Playa Samara, this is the place to stay, you won’t be disappointed!

My stay at Casitas LazDivaz was a beautiful experience that I would highly recommend to anyone planning a visit to Costa Rica. I stayed here in January 2014 on a romantic getaway.

The casitas are located on a beach front property. Hammocks hanging in the palm trees overlooking the beach greet you when you arrive. These hammocks were perfect for an afternoon of cat napping and reading.

There are a small amount of casitas making for a peaceful and tranquil setting, not a lot of travelers hustling in and around to ruin your relaxation time. You can hear the ocean in the evening and it lulls you to sleep. In the morning, we would sit on our porch and beautiful birds would greet us. During sunset hour, there is a beachfront bench made of drift wood and we could enjoy a beer and relax as the sun went down. This is not your typical chain hotel experience. It is really something quaint, unique, romantic, and magical. Felt like a honey moon.

The casitas are so bright and airy. There are windows all around and you can let the fresh air in and enjoy the garden surrounding you. There are also dark curtains to shut out the light and for privacy. Everything was well decorated, clean, and comfortable. The woodwork in the casitas are also very special.

The property is located walking distance to everything (shops, markets, restaurants, the beach).

What made my stay even more special was the owner, Sara. You can really tell that she put a lot of love into this place. It seems to melt into the scenery that surrounds it. Sara was just a joy to be around and she made our stay a truly special experience. Something to remember and cherish. She was so helpful and knowledgeable but most importantly she was, GENUINE.

We spent half of our time at another hotel in the area, and it although it was nice, it just DID NOT COMPARE.

It would be a shame to visit Samara and not book your stay at Casitas LazDivaz. It is the perfect hotel to match the town of Samara.

Room Tip: book the room with the kitchen, it looked like a little love nest
