Casitas Laz Divaz in Playa Samara was the perfect spot for us to finish off our Costa Rican adventure. They are located right on the beach when many other establishments are back in the hills. To us, this was a must - walk right out of our accommodations and straight into the water! But Castias Laz Divaz ended up being...

I spent 5 days at the Casitas and am so glad I chose them for my visit to Samara. Sara and Berit are fantastic hosts. I looked forward to cocktail hour with them on the beach every day and appreciated their stories and recommendations for places to go, how to get there, etc. Morning bird walks with Sara were wonderful...

If you're holidaying in Costa Rica then you must, must MUST go to Playa Samara if only to stay at Casitas Laz Divaz. Sara and Berit are all that you could wish for in hosts - friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and fun! From the moment we got in touch with them to make a booking they couldn't have been more helpful....

My partner and I were on the last leg of our trip and had made reservations with Casita Laz Divaz. Once we made the drive to Samara we found that we weren't able to reach Las Divaz due to the power company blocking the entrance while working on the power line. We decided to drive through town to find a...

We stayed for three nights at Casitas LazDivaz, in the Tina Turner casita. Highlights included the fabulous breakfast and coffee every morning, hours of lazy hammocking on the beach, sharing a beer with Sara and Berit during their 'sunset ritual', making lunch every day in the Tina Turner kitchen and enjoying it with some cold Imperial on the deck. We...

My ladyfriend and I stayed with Laz Divaz in January for a week. It was probably the laziest, most relaxing week we will ever have. The accomodation: Laz Divaz are about a 10 minute walk along the beach from the main town. The casitas are clean, beautifully built from gorgeous timber. A mosquito net and the resident geckoes meant we...

Samara was our last stop in costa rica before heading home.... I had researched places to stay in Samara extensively and was really unsure - but I am so glad we ended up with Laz Divaz!

This place is great. Comfortable rooms, great breakfasts (the best we had in Costa Rica). Berit and Sara were great hosts. They hang hammocks from palms on the beach, right across the street from the hotel - very, very comfortable! I want to give them a terrible review so no else finds this place.

We spent a month (Dec 11 to Jan 11) at LAZDIVAZ - There are 3 casitas, which are intimate, comfortable and in-keeping with the surroundings. All the furniture at Lazdivaz is hand made by Sara & Berit, which give your room and breakfast seating area an individual and rustic feel. Elga and the girls keep the rooms immaculate. Our bed...
