We stayed here one night as we were flying out of San Jose airport. I read that this is a great spot to stay at as an airport hotel. The hotel is lovely, though we arrived at night and didnt get to see much of it during the day as we left really early the next morning. Nice restaurant, and...

I can't say enough nice things about Hotel la Rosa de America! We stayed here for our 1st night in Costa Rica before heading to the Caribbean to volunteer with the sea turtles. Unfortunately, I got very sick while at the research station and had to head back to Alajuela. After a 4 hour drive, we were greeted by a...

After flying in to CR and renting a car to drive there for the first time ever, my husband and I were so relieved to finally reach this beautiful boutique hotel at midnight, where William, night security, received us with so much hospitality and were shown to our room. We woke up to gorgeous gardens and delicious breakfast that was...

We arrived in Costa Rica 2:00 a.m., and after going through immigration, customs, and getting our bags, we were bleary-eyed and exhausted. It was a delight to walk into the terminal dragging our bags and see someone holding up a sign with our name on it. He grabbed our bags...twenty minutes later we were in our rooms. Buffet breakfast is...

We stayed at La Rosa the night we landed in CR because it was close to the airport. We arrived around 9:30 PM, but the night watchman was there to open the gate and show us to our room. He also brought us two bottles of water (not free). We had a few hours the next morning to enjoy the...

Thank you for your very detailed review. It was a pleasure to read and I will try to respond to your comments in return! The primary focus of La Rosa is to provide a beautiful, peaceful location, near the airport for guests wanting alternatives to big box chains located at the foot of the runway.

This hotel is real gem. Right out of seeming nowhere (OK it was at night) we turned into this lovely little property. The garden is magnificent as is the pool and related amenities.

What a find!!!! Surrounded by beautiful trees and plants, this carefully and beautifully kept gardens have the most adorable, comfortable, greatly decorated and spotless rooms, with very comfortable beds. Close to the airport (15min, $15 by taxi), but feels far from everything. Poolside seating so pleasant in the afternoons, great breakfast, indoor & outdoor areas, all staff extremely professional, efficient,...

The property is really nice! Very cozy rooms in separate houses, a very seducing and well kept tropical garden. Also a nice pool. (Pool's tiles are a bit slippery though) The only downside is the breakfast. A bit too basic. The only good coffee is the special one you pay separately.

We are happy that you were seduced by our gardens and cabins! Thank you for letting us know. We are aware of the pool tiles being slippery and we try to tell every guest when they arrive and we put a sign out as well.. though sometimes that sign gets moved around by the wind. Regarding breakfast, we are working...
