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. The staff was very helpful in helping us get to the airport at 5AM. They even made sure we had a little breakfast and hot coffee before...

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.

The grounds are amazing! Very beautiful, and a little ways out of the city of San Jose, but still very accessible. The hotel was very responsive to emails and booked my shuttle from the airport.

We arrived in Costa Rica 2:00 a.m., and after going through immigration, customs, and getting our bags, we were bleary-eyed and exhausted. It was a delight to walk into the terminal dragging our bags and see someone holding up a sign with our name on it. He grabbed our bags...twenty minutes later we were in our rooms.
