“Wonderful host and superb breakfast”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Laurie is a very friendly, welcoming host who went out of her way to help us. The breakfast was amazing certainly the best i have had in all 4 visits to Costa Rica. This is an idea base to explore the central valley or use as a stop over at the beginning or end of your trip to Costa Rica as it is close to the airport."

We stayed for our last night in Costa Rica and had a wonderful stay. The staff were very friendly and Laurie is wonderful and was very helpful in arranging our 2 week car rental prior to our arrival and also arranged for transportation to the airport. The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious.
We would highly recommend Cariari B & B to anyone.

Room Tip: The Royal room was a good size for our family of 4, and the patio was just outside our door.

Laurie goes out of her way to assist her guests. When we needed a GPS, Laurie volunteered her Garmin! Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were delicious and filling with a multitude of choices and all the fruit you could possibly consume. If you wish to play golf, Laurie can arrange a round....oh was that that nice! Imagine a day starting with 9 holes, followed by a trip to the Doka Estates for a tour of a coffee estate and then to La Paz for a lovely walk. Then if you are lucky, Laurie will take you to the theatre! And, if you would like a tour to Irazu, Laurie will arrange that as well.

Laurie treated us as though we were family members. My daughter developed shingles during our Christmas holidays visit in 2013. Laurie immediately arranged for medical help and medications. She went way beyond what anyone would expect of an inn keeper.as well as seeing to it that we would enjoy all the many events offered during that time of the year. I highly recommend The Cariari B&B and look forward to my next visit. Michelle Youell, Boston, MA

Room Tip: Book early.

I could tell from the e-mails received from Laurie in advance of our visit that she was going to be the kind of B&B host you dream of! My cousin and I spent our first night here, before departing for Arenal. From Laurie's personal, warm welcome at our late-night arrival, to sitting and chatting with us over a lovely breakfast on a lovely patio, to her insistence that she take us to the local fruit market prior to our pick-up that morning, and to her pride in her absolutely beautiful home---all was perfect. Laurie genuinely wants her guests to enjoy the country as much as she does. What a wonderful start to a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica!

We reserved a room and tried to make our way to this hotel, but the map on tripadvisor is wrong. The property is not in downtown Herederia, it appears to be in an adjacent suburb. Disappointed that we didn't make it there! And lost our deposit....

So sorry you had a problem----I will call trip advisor & give them our GPS coordiates to make sure this does not happen to anyone else. Did you have our phone #??? Did you go to our website where there are very good directions. When ever you are going to a location that is unfamiliar--you should ALWAYS have a phone #. You are in new territory & it is easy to get lost. When i contact my guests I make sure they have our phone # & proper directions. Was the Res. made through an agency online?? Please accept my apology --but since you were never here --I think it is unfair to give a bad review to Cariari Bed & Breakfast. If ever you return to C.R.--I will be happy to comp you a nite---But ,please contact me directly----Thank you, L.

Cariari Bed and Breakfast was our first stop in Costa Rica and we wished it had been our last stop as well, as we were leaving the country. Laurie is an amazing host, going out of her way (and the staff's way!) to make us a fabulous dinner upon our arrival on Christmas Day. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was --- as our travel agent put it --- to die for! Fresh fruit, delicious banana bread, eggs and bacon. A perfect start to our first full day in the country. When our rental car was delayed in delivery, Laurie took us to the store so we could stock up on water and supplies for our trip to the coast. She really went out of her way to make our stay very comfortable. Thanks, Laurie!
