The hotel is near the arirport (which is well outside San Jose) and lies in an organic coffee plantation. There are rooms in the main building and in other buildings in the garden linked by stone paths. We were in a garden building which has an impressive atrium / entrance hall. The rooms are designer and slightly less comfortable than... More

This boutique ecolodge located on an organic coffee plantation offers delicious meals on a scenic outdoor deck. Their sustainable practices make this a good choice for travelers who want to have a low environmental impact without sacrificing comfort. In room coffee consists of a french press and freshly ground organic coffee from their own bushes.

We needed a place to stay our first night in Costa Rica, close to the airport. Finca Rosa Blanca was perfect - they arranged a taxi to drive us the 25 minutes or so from the airport, and to take us back the next morning. The driver was friendly and prompt, and aware of traffic conditions, suggesting we leave earlier... More

We had the great fortune to stay here right when the Turrialba volcano erupted (no worries it was miles and miles away). But it did create havoc for guests when flights into and out of San Jose were cancelled. We saw a staff that was very accommodating to those guests immediately impacted.

We aren't the most experienced 5-star travelers, but we've been around.
