We stayed here just 1 night upon our arrival in CR. Our room rate included airport transfer, which was very convenient. The hotel is very charming, one of a kind. Beautiful landscaping and nice small pool area. We had a room with 1 double and a bunk bed. The space was a little tight for 4 but it was not...

Thank you for your review! We do feel that we offer a unique experience as we are not the normal box-style airport hotel. Thank you for your compliment about our gardens, we work very hard to keep them beautiful. We host many families so we do have some room options with a bunk bed for the kids. We hope you...

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...

Hi, we rented a room at la Rosa de America and were very satisfied. We were looking for a place to stay for the first night near the airport to be able to pick up our car rental and this hotel was perfect for that. The rooms are small but they are clean. The site has a nice pool area,...

What a lovely place in the back roads of Alajuela. The cheaper rooms tend to be near the gate or reception and are quite noisy, also no a/c and the fan isn't really up to keeping it comfortable during the heat of the day. Go for a superior room, spacious, clean and comfortable with a/c. Well kept gardens and a...

As lots of other reviews say, this is a perfect place to start or finish a trip to Costa Rica. It's close to the airport but in a rural area and quiet. Staff were lovely especially Blanca and Ana and the waiter. Rooms are all on ground level almost in individual cabins with flowers painted on the outside and set...

Stayed at Hotel La Rosa two nights in Feb. Couldn't have more pleased. Everything was perfect, from the beautiful grounds to the relaxing restaurant that we ate at several times. Will come back.

Thank you for your review! We understand that many folks need to leave early or arrive late for flights, and we do our best to ensure a quick, comfortable transition. And leaving on an empty stomach is NOT good, so we are glad you enjoyed our breakfast to-go! We hope you can come and visit us again soon.

Wow, I was impressed with this place. Lovely grounds, clean rooms and very helpful staff. We were taking a taxi to Puerto Jimenez the next day after arriving in the late afternoon in San Jose. The staff prepared bagged breakfasts for each of us to take in the morning and they made sure that our taxi arrived.
