Best hotel in Coyote Beach

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Food is excellent!!!
Cons: TV size is too small.
Location: There is a lot of tours near by, but is not recommended with a sedan. The hotel gives you a lot of activities to do.
The hotel is located in a very isolated beach, but the hotel gives you excellent facilities for you to spend a good vacation. The hotel staff is very friendly and makes you feel like home. FOOD IS EXCELLENT!!!

Gorgeous but way out of the way

Posted Apr 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
The drive in...26 miles of rough dirt road!! Arrival at the hotel...a beautiful property in the middle of no where. Customer service was fantastic, unbeatable!! The pool was wonderful and relaxing. The restaurant and bar was very nice. Playa San Miguel was absolutely gorgeous. Never ate anywhere else but at the hotel. Tried to eat at the Pizza Tree but they were not open. The only issue we had was the suite on the top floor (room 9) does not stay cool. It's surrounded with windows and they have shades but it remained warm even though we ran the air continuously. Xiomara, Andres, John-Luc and Cici were all such wonderful people and their hospitality did not go unrecognized!!

A real gem!

Posted Feb 14, 2014
We arrived at Hotel Laguna Mar intending to stay only one night but quickly decided to extend our stay to four nights. We loved everything about this place; staff was kind and attentive (always smiling and cheerful), the accommodations were modern, clean and comfortable, the restaurant was terrific and the owners genuinely interested in making your stay memorable. Truly, the warmth extended to us by the staff made for an unforgettable experience. The Hotel also assisted in organizing a day trip for us to go snorkelling and spend some time on Tortuga Island which was well worth the (very reasonable) price. Nearby Playa San Miguel is absolutely perfect - clean, private and long. We enjoyed our time at the beach and the proximity to the hotel. Everything about our last four days in Costa Rica and staying at Hotel Laguna Mar was perfect - thank you!

Great beach great food

Posted Feb 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great food for dinners and the beach is wonderful. The area is very remote. A 4x4 is essential! We crossed 1 river about 2 feet deep and 2 about 1 foot deep. Getting from San Jose to the hotel and back we traveled 100kilometers or more on dirt roads. The staff (CiCi) were above par for anyplace we have stayed.

Best accommodations near deserted beaches

Posted Feb 1, 2014
Pros: Mellow atmosphere. Good service.
Cons: Dinner options in local towns are very limited. The hotel rest. is very good, but not your classic tico cuisine.
Location: Awesome, quiet beaches.
We ventured out to this hotel to completely disconnect and relax as a couple. The hotel is small, affordable, and strikes a balance between cozy and modern.

This is a great hotel

Posted Jan 8, 2014
Pros: I loved the modern ambience. The hotel architecture is beautiful. I loved the decor of the rooms. The owners are just wonderful.
Cons: The rooms were a bit small. But they have potential and the owner could easily add more storage area for unpacking one´s clothing.
Location: There are plenty of things to do nearby - but a car is required. There aren´t many dining options, however. There aren´t nightlife options like discos
Laguna Mar´s main assets are its owners, Jean Luc and Cecile. I felt like it was staying as guests at their house. They do everything possible to make their guests comfortable and welcome. They will even drive you places, if necessary. That happened to one of the guests who did not rent a car. I don´t think that many hotel owners are willing to do that. The hotel is located in a very remote area so a car is necessary. In fact, a 4x4 is necessary since you have to travel on a dirt road to get there. I like the fact that it is so remote and not crowded. The beach is located about 15 minutes walking or a 5-minute car ride. The ocean is warm, the sand smooth and the view simply breathtaking. There are also many other beaches that you can visit that are driving distance from the hotel. The hotel rooms are a bit small, but comfortable. They do, however, require more storage space for unpacking. The bathroom is very large and could definitely be reduced in order to enlarge the room. That is one suggestion. But, overall, the rooms are very modern and have a European flair. The food is great. Pablo, the chef, trained in Denmark and Italy. His food is amazing. The only drawback is that the menu never changes. I suggest adding a daily special to add more variety. There is also a nearby restaurant called Restaurante Loma Clara which has great food. I loved that the hotel is very open to families and children. This is something that I found was not the case in nearby hotels.

Get away from it all...

Posted Dec 22, 2013
Pros: Everything! Friendly, helpful staff, gourmet food prepared by the culinary wizard, Chef Pablo!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Near Playa San Miguel. Beach wandering....
Great place to hide away for a time. Friendly, helpful staff, great food. Recc the penthouse, third floor, no neighbors, private patio overlooking the pool and Jacuzzi. Yes! Chef Pablo was trained in Denmark, the staff speaks English, you can't go wrong. The new owner, Jean-Luc, is quite friendly and helpful, as is the entire staff, who make you feel totally at home. The nearby beaches are pretty much empty for kilometers, and this is Christmas time, high season. There are activities, such as kayaking, tropical forest walks, horseback riding, etc. but we elected just to chill and hang out on the solitary beaches and run with our dog. Beats hanging out in the big city, stressed to the max. We'll be back!
