We had such a great stay at Finca Rosa Blanca, we only wish we had been able to stay longer. The staff were always friendly, helpful and seem very happy working at the property, which is especially evident in the restaurant where the wait staff are really passionate about what they're serving. There's a great choice of activities - we... More

FRB is a great property. About 20 minutes from SJO airport, up in the mountains overlooking the city. Very peaceful, great staff, lots of activities to arrange and a nice restaurant. Breakfast and afternoon coffee are included. Dinner menu changes with the vegetarian and catch of the day specials. Nice drink list too. We had the Cielo master suite, and... More

A stunning little hotel with a fabulous restaurant, a quirky, delightful pool and mad and charming rooms. Its full of character, but run impeccably - great service, great tours and all in all an amazing place to stay.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip and came back for our last night in Costa Rica. Finca Rosa Blanca is one of the best hotels I've stayed in (and having traveled to 30+ countries, I don't say that lightly!) It is obvious that someone has put much care into little details that make the... More

Stayed here for two nights a week apart as an airport hotel stop. Lovely room in main house . We really liked the staff and the vibe . Shame we didn't get to spend much time here as the place has a lot to offer . Highly recommended . Good food. Great coffee!

This place is superb and wonderful for honeymooners in particular. Set away from the San Jose hustle & bustle and set in a coffee plantation it is a quiet retreat. The coffee tour was very informational & definitely worth going to. Lovely place for a break from everything. The food & coffee was just delectable.

Only got to stay here one night but wish it had been more! It's a great complex with several buildings, pool area is gorgeous and really nicely done- felt like we were in some remote garden & not just outside the city. Our room was lovely, great size with it's own terrace and the bathroom had a large shower and... More

I stayed at this inn just after my arrival in Costa Rica on April 16, 2015. It is a delightful property with a very friendly staff and many thoughtfully prepared details. The cottage in which I stayed was well appointed and had an incredible view of the city below. The twinkling lights at night from my private balcony was perfect.... More

I really enjoyed my stay here - my only complaint? It was far too short! The food was excellent (and they cater well for vegetarians). The room was very comfortable and I was impressed by their eco credentials. They take caring for the environment seriously. I would definitely stay here again (I'd just stay a little longer next time!)

Located near the San Jose airport in the city of Santa Barbara, Finca Rosa Blanca (FRB) is an interesting hotel. We have spoken to many travelers during our recent excursion to Costa Rica and the tour companies appear to use it as the jumping off place upon entering CR or as the way station prior to departure.

Dear David116116; We appreciate your thorough review and are very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We like to think of our rooms as timeless- every year we do a complete renovation and maintenance to all of them, updating and adding so that they retain this particular esthetic attribute. All of the hotel, most of the furniture, the gardens, the construction... More
