I was more than happy to stay at La Rosa de America for the second time this year, this time as an impromptu visit when my stay in Panama ran into difficulties. Again, the reply to my e-mail was prompt, and they were able to accommodate even more impromptu changes to my itinerary. A ride was arranged to pick me...

We felt more like we were staying in someone's home than in a hotel. The grounds are beautifully groomed. The staff is very friendly and willing to go out of their way to help you. Working with the hotel online is efficient and pleasant. We were so comfortable there we came back a night early to relax before going home....
