What a find!!!! Surrounded by beautiful trees and plants, this carefully and beautifully kept gardens have the most adorable, comfortable, greatly decorated and spotless rooms, with very comfortable beds. Close to the airport (15min, $15 by taxi), but feels far from everything. Poolside seating so pleasant in the afternoons, great breakfast, indoor & outdoor areas, all staff extremely professional, efficient,...

The property is really nice! Very cozy rooms in separate houses, a very seducing and well kept tropical garden. Also a nice pool. (Pool's tiles are a bit slippery though) The only downside is the breakfast. A bit too basic. The only good coffee is the special one you pay separately.

We are happy that you were seduced by our gardens and cabins! Thank you for letting us know. We are aware of the pool tiles being slippery and we try to tell every guest when they arrive and we put a sign out as well.. though sometimes that sign gets moved around by the wind. Regarding breakfast, we are working...

This is our 5th visit at Rosa Americana. Conveniently located 20 minutes from San Jose airport, this is a high-end motel kind of a place. It's simple and peaceful, centrally located to some of the attractions around the area such as Poas volcano and La Paz Waterfalls.

This is a lovely friendly hotel in a green residential area quite near the airport so is perfect for a short stay when arriving or leaving Costa Rica.

Hello and thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay, our hotel is nicely situated in a quieter area of Alajuela. As many of our guests have planes to catch that don't always leave at convenient times, we do try our best to accommodate early/late arrivals and departures. We hope you had a good trip home!...
