We arrived in Costa Rica around 4:30, dealt with the fun of picking up our rental car, and made it to the hotel around 6:30. We were greeted upon arrival by a member of the exemplary staff at this small boutique hotel about 15 minutes from the airport. We were tired and ready to decompress and this hotel gave us...

Thank you for your very honest review of Hotel La Rosa but also our comparison with other options in the very competitive San Jose Airport area.

I stayed here five years ago on my first visit to Costa Rica and remembered the exceptional service from that time so decided to try again.

What a nice little gem and the perfect place to stay by the airport. Hotel La Rosa de America is a peaceful little place with a friendly staff and all the amenities you need.

I booked rooms in this hotel for a group of 16 colleagues that were meeting in Costa Rica for a retreat.

For two years in a row, we've made this hotel our last stop before heading home. The grounds are lovely, the dinner was fantastic, and the banana bread is yummy. Our room was so big it fit our family of 5 with a bed to spare!

We appreciate your review! It was no trouble at all to provide exchange services for your colones.

Like many people, the allure of Alajuela is its proximity to the airport while still being close to San Jose. The hotel is a wonderful and warm place, like a home more than a hotel.

Thank you for your 5 star review! We fully agree that a solely functional business is not necessarily an understanding nor personable one. Businesses should have a human side as well... not an impersonal call centre. Certainly for my part, living in an ever increasing world of absolutes, driven significantly by the coldness of the computer age.... can be frustrating!...

We stayed here before an early morning flight, and were very pleased. The grounds are exquisitely manicured, creating a little oasis in the bustle of Alajuela.
