Just a few miles from the airport, this is a perfect spot to start or end a trip to wonderful Costa Rica. Reception was very nice. We arrived about 8pm which is when the restaurant usually closes. They kindly offered to keep it open if we wanted. Very nice. We opted not to that evening, although the next day we...

My wife and I spent one night here on the front end of our recent trip to Costa Rica. The booking process was very straightforward via e-mail and hotel communication was prompt. The hotel booked our transfer from the airport which worked out perfectly for a reasonable price (gracias Ignacio). This is the second time we have stayed at La...

Cute campy hotel right outside crowded San Jose. Staff was excellent, very friendly, helpful. After a long trip to get to Costa Rica, we enjoyed our first meal very basic and homemade. We stayed on either end of trip. If it is hot, stay in air conditioned room. We would stay again.

I have been to Alajuela 4 different times always looking for the perfect hotel. La Rosa de America is now my favorite location for staying more than an overnight. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms are clean. The pool is a great place to relax, large enough for multiple guests yet small enough to be quaint. The grounds...

It is very important that our guests find La Rosa to be clean. Any hotel that can not be trusted to be clean fails guest expectations no matter what else happens.

We were very happy to stay here after a drive from the airport. We found the grounds to be absolutely gorgeous. The pool was very nice and regretfully didn't get to use it. The owner is Canadian so he helped us with maps and showed us how to get to Volcano Poas and Monteverde. The workers was very nice and...

We very much like it when our guests find enjoyment in our gardens! You really should come take a look in mid-summer or in early December when all the flowers are really blooming! March is such a dry month with no rain whatsoever. Fortunately we have a well onsite that allows us to capture the heavy fall rains for later...

This hotel is a short distance from the San Jose airport making it very convenient when arriving and departing. The rooms are small. We stayed on arrival and had a room closest to the street and it was a bit noisy. The hot water set-up in the shower was odd but functional. Our last night we had a room closer...
