My sisters, daughter and I stayed at the hotel upon arrival to Costa Rica and then 1 sister and my daughter and I stayed on our way out of the country. The gardens are wonderful and so full of flora and wee fauna. The included breakfast was perfect with banana bread, fresh fruit, Costa Rican coffee, etc. Loved how they...

It is always good to see people who rely on Tripadvisor taking the time to write in themselves. We feel it is so important for future guests to be able to read the experiences of past travelers. As the Owner of La Rosa, I am glad that what you researched and expected was what you saw and received from us!...

Our flight doesn't leave until 2 am. We had to be out of our condo in Jaco by 9 am so we decided to book a hotel room so we could relax and rest before the long trip home. We chose the Hotel La Rosa de America. We are thrilled! The room 2S for my Mom, Dad and I is...

I only stayed at La Rosa for my first night in Costa Rica, but it provided the travelers respite that i needed. Relaxing, peaceful and friendly was the perfect way to begin an adventure. I was fortunate to meet another solo traveler and we explored the local dining options together (quite an adventure the busy narrow road with no sidewalks!)....

Little cabinas throught a well groom garden. Fruit trees. Pool. Reception and restaurant building. Not recently renovated but still ok. But there was a few mishaps on our stay that make us think other accomodation might be better suited for an in/out stay near the airport. From the website and the reservation confirmation, we were made to believe that paying...

Unfortunately it seems that there were some misunderstandings with your stay at La Rosa. We regret this confusion as we know how important our service is to our guests especially in light of our responsibilities inherent in being the entry point to Costa Rica for so many guests - both new and returning. We are glad that you found our...

La Rosa is near (but not too near!) the San José airport (SJ0) and is nicely located to visit the many attractions in the region (worth 3-4 days, depending on interests). The staff is very friendly and helpful, the hotel and grounds (with lovely swimming pool) are immaculately kept. Very welcome after a long flight, a good place to rest...

Thank you for writing the review!

We stayed here on our first and last days in Costa Rica. The 'hotel' consists of chalets set in a small but well-laid out tropical garden. Rooms (S1 and 8) were adequately sized and clean with comfortable beds. Hot water in the shower, reliable toilets (not always the case in CR) and a good restaurant. No A/C (we had two...

I did all the planning for my trip to Costa Rica on my own. As a lone traveler with no concept of the lay out of the land, neighborhoods, and the like, it is always touch and go when I've arrived at some places. I had never been to Costa Rica -- and Spanish? I know none except a few...
