After a full day of traveling, we arrived late from the airport to the hotel ( starving I might add) little to realize that restaurants close at 9pm. To my surprise Alexia went out of her way to cut up some fabulous fresh fruit and gave us her own nut mix and brought it to our room with a beautiful...

We stayed at Hotel la Rosa de America when we flew into Costa Rica at midnight. Robert and Alexandra arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and had someone waiting to show us to our room at 1 AM. When we awoke the next morning to beautiful grounds and a delicious breakfast, we discovered our next destination...

Thank you for taking the time to recognize our efforts at being "unofficial" travel agents! For us it is very disturbing to see a guest arrive in this beautiful country and then find their trip plans come apart through no fault of their own! It was our pleasure to help redesign your trip on short notice. Especially, we are glad...

We loved Costa Rica. We selected La Rosa de America because it was close to the airport and the place looks cozy and comfortable from the pictures posted. Our flight was delayed and we had problems locating our luggage so I assumed we've missed our free transportation to the hotel. We were very happy to find when we stepped out...

What a surprise! We stayed at this hotel like so many others because it's close to the airport. We didn't expect to be so impressed. It has small but clean and comfortable rooms. Get one with a/c. Don't miss the banana bread, and allow some time to enjoy the garden.

Thank you for your comments! We are glad you enjoyed having the air conditioning. This feature is new for La Rosa and is slowly being installed in all our Superior Rooms.

As a multiple night stay guest, your views are especially important to us as we are trying to encourage guests to stay more than one night at La Rosa...

This hotel was a perfect place to stay both when we got to Costa Rica and when we sadly had to leave. Beautiful gardens, nice breakfast, very helpful staff, comfy rooms, and quick access to the airport yet far enough away to enjoy flowers, birds, and a pool. Highly recommended!

“All rooms were single story clusters or 2 or 3, with patios. I'd say all locations are good”
  • Small rooms, but fine for a night. And the location, food and service makes up for it
  • Small bathroom, but large shower
  • Alcove by the bathroom for toiletries or clothes (not much room in the bathroom for them)
  • Inside the room. Loved the mural on the wall, towel swan and soft bed
