This was our first stop in Costa Rica before departing for the Caribbean, and it was by far the best way to unwind from our busy lives and lengthy travels. I can't say enough about this place... the fabulous views of the San José city valley and volcanoes, the gourmet restaurant and bar, beautiful and educational coffee plantation tour, and... More

We stayed at Finca Rosa Blanca at the end of our honeymoon trip. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel welcome and at ease. The property is beautifully landscaped, and is an adventure in itself to walk around the trails throughout the farm. Our room, La Piedra was gorgeous and unique, with a sitting room, a large... More

My wife and I stayed here at the beginning and at the ending of our Costa Rica trip. We stayed in two different rooms but both were clean and charming. All of the staff were most helpful, courteous and patient. The food in the restaurant was excellent and we even spoke with the chef and thanked him for his work.... More

We only had one night here and were totally charmed. Wish we had time for a plantation tour. We arrived at around midnight and there was someone waiting for greet us and check us in. The hotel is probably a 20 to 30 minute drive from the airport but so worth. The rooms are charming, with lots of space and... More

My family (mom, dad, and two "grown up" kids) stayed here our second night in CR. It was a pretty quick trip from the airport and the staff greeted us warmly. We stayed in two adjoining rooms and had beautiful views of the surrounding village. We took a morning tour of the coffee plantation, and our guide, Ulysses, was so... More

To avoid a 3 hour drive early in the morning prior to our flight, we decided to find a hotel close to the airport for our last night and stumbled upon Finca Rosa Blanca on Trip Advisor. From arrival to departure the next day, we were treated like special guests. We arrived early enough to do the coffee tour the... More

After a long day of travel to get to Costa Rica, my husband and I couldn't wait to get to FRB to relax. It was closer to the airport than I thought which was great. Once we got there we were blown away by the view. Our room was nice but I honestly expected a bit more for what we... More

We had a beautiful stay at Finca Rosa Blanca in February, with perfect weather, friendly service, tasty food, and all the relaxation we were looking for. We stayed in the "junior suite" called La Guaria, which was spacious, clean, and had an incredibly comfortable bed. We did not use the jacuzzi bath but it looked nice. Loved enjoying the free...

We only spent one night at the Finca on our way from Puerto Viejo to the Arenal area. What a good idea and too bad we didn't make it a couple of nights. Everything was impeccable there - from the funky rooms and decor to the service and smiles. It was pouring when we arrived, but we stayed at the... More
