This place was the first accommodation on our honeymoon and it really didn't disappoint. The location, staff, food, etc, were all excellent. The room was beautiful and the coffee tour - with Leo, I think - was superb. They even went to the trouble of helping us get to and fro San Jose. Can't recommend enough!

Our flight to San Jose arrived before noon and we knew that the airport is quite efficient, so we were looking for a location near the airport in an effort to get an extra half day of vacation. We chose Finca Rosa Blanca and it worked out very well. The Inn is very popular and by the time we got... More

Stayed at Finca Rosa for one night with our three teens. Very beautiful grounds and room. We did the coffee plantation tour which I thought was very interesting and the kids liked the tasting afterwards. Staff was very friendly and very good service. Only exception was the service at dinner which was very poor...waiter never came over to our table.

So myself and my new husband stayed here for the first 2 nights of our honeymoon and we couldn't have wished for better. The room was beautiful and immaculate, the bath was lovely (and we are not normally bath people) and the hotel was in the most beautiful setting. We ate at the hotel both nights as the food was...

Dear Sallyansell I am so glad you loved the Suite and its incredible bathtub. We originally built that for my mother who wanted a huge bathtub where she could watch the coffee fields and views down below and read her book if she felt like it (thus the armrests in the tub!). As for the coffee, we are so proud... More

Only stayed overnight here, so not enough time to fully assess FRB but it seemed certainly 4* and maybe 5*. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Great grounds including scenic views, and a small walking trail with a chance to see a few birds. The pool looked an idyllic spot. Good breakfast on a pleasing terrace. Our "suite" was roomy... More

Dear Mike707 Thanks for writing about your stay in the Master Suite. We do indeed have some wonderful staff, who love their jobs and love meeting new people. I know how grueling it can be to fly from the UK to Central America and especially when having to endure an "in transit" layover. But getting to Costa Rica always saves... More

The Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn just outside San Jose, Costa Rica is a miserable failure if you define a good hotel as one that provides a comfortable, safe place to sleep. That is a shame because the hotel has lovely grounds, a great location, friendly staff and a very good restaurant. But those things do not make... More

Dear Calistoga Grower; Thanks for letting us know how your stay went with us, and I truly sorry your room was not to your liking. The room you were in, Las Aves, does not have a view of the Central Valley below, but has a private garden patio surrounded by beautiful exotic tropical flora and volcanic walls with ferns growing...

We stayed at FRB for 4 days in March 2014. Way more pros than cons, but still some things to consider before booking. Pros: the rooms, grounds, and overall architecture are fabulous--this former ranch has a very interesting layout. The restaurant is above-average and has an outstanding view of San Jose. The coffee tour is excellent and highly recommended (and... More

Dear CincyJoe95; I appreciate your candid comments and especially about the pros and cons. I am sorry the Pacuare rafting tour didn't work out- we generally only pick outside tours based on very strict criteria; our own personal knowledge and experience, the company's sustainability, the overall quality of the experience, safety and reliability. I would be very interested to get... More

My husband and I ended our Honeymoon at Finca Rosa Blanca after having stayed at the Peace Lodge and several other places north of Costa Rica. We stayed in their honeymoon suite and did not want to leave it! It was an incredible experience, so romantic and private with a breath-taking night view of the city. Pictures don't do this... More

Dear Lisette T; I was so happy to hear you got to stay in the Rosa Blanca Master Suite. That room was originally built for my mother, who had always dreamed of "sleeping in the clouds". We couldn't quite do that for her, but we came as close as possible building the 360 degree view in the cupola with the... More

We just returned from a stay at this resort and had the most wonderful experience - located on a coffee plantation you would never know you were in San Jose - architectural style and design make you feel that you are in a country setting - even Spain or Portugal.

Finca Rosa Blanca is a quaint little coffee plantation set on beautiful grounds with fabulous, attentive staff. The complimentary coffee and cookies in the afternoon is delightful. The grounds are fun to explore and learn about coffee. Breakfast is included and did not disappoint. The bed is so comfortable and each room is unique. We enjoyed sunset by the pool.... More
