I stayed here as a start and finish for my Costa Rica trip. I got in late the first night and left early the last day. The staff was extremely helpful and made the proper accommodations even outside of normal hours, where they packed me a "to go" breakfast for me since I left before the kitchen opened. Rooms were...

We only stayed one night at the Hotel La Rosa de America but we certainly enjoyed it. We were greeted by a young man who showed us our room, assisted us with our bags and hooked us up with some drinks and treats. We had a very bad experience with Europcar rental car and needed some assistance. The manager and...

This was our second trip to Costa Rica. We once again started and ended our trip at Hotel La Rosa. The location is perfect..15 minutes to the airport; quiet & secure, close to a few restuarants and Zoo Ave. The beds have been upgraded since our last visit and were very comfortable. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated....

Really nice peaceful hotel about 15 mins away from San Jose Airport. It is significantly less expensive than the Holiday Inn / Hampton Inns near the airport and has a lot more character and warmth.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that we could help, even if it was in a rather unusual way! Having restricted access to your funds while in a foreign country could definitely have a rather negative impact on your overall vacation. Certainly at La Rosa, we did not want to see that happen especially after learning that this...

Lovely and Peaceful little hotel, great launching point for your Costa Rica vacation. Lovely garden and landscaping, clean comfortable rooms, helpful staff. Good Price and close to the airport but feels out of the hustle and bustle. Coldest beer in Costa Rica just around the corner at Chery's Bar and Restaraunt.

For our vacation in Costa Rica, our particular focus was on two of our major interests: coffee and parrots! I mapped out the locations of coffee plantations, parrot breeding programs and other places we wanted to visit, and discovered that mostly we wanted to be around the central valley of Costa Rica. So rather than using La Rosa as an...

This was a great place to stay for our first and last night in Costa Rica. The staff was wonderful and helpful.

Thank you for your recommendation to stay at La Rosa! It was our pleasure to help you with your car and shuttle needs. We enjoyed spending time with you and helping you plan your Costa Rica vacation!

Beautiful garden setting. Quiet neighbourhood. Yet v close to airport. Rooms are simple but clean. Breakfast is also simple, but enough. Staff are very good at customer care.
