Our family of five recently stayed at the Finca Rosa Blanca June 26th-June 28th. Traveling with 3 teenagers, it became a perfect starting point to see Costa Rica. In fact, it would have been a perfect ending point, or even middle point. We stayed in the Villa Boyera, which easily held five adult size individuals. The hotel is breathtaking, the... More

Hola Greg1022; What a detailed and wonderful review of our hotel! I am very happy you had such a strong reaction, we always hope that our clients will enjoy Finca Rosa Blanca as much as you did.

We stayed at Finca Rosa Blanca for 3 nights. I was with my son and a friend. It is a great place very convenient to either start your trip in Costa Rica or maybe finish it up. We went to the La Paz waterfalls which was about 45 min and we white water rafted which was about 2 hr from... More

My son are at Finca Rosa Blanca now staying in El Guarumo. We will be here two more nights and I'm already conspiring how soon I can return with my entire family. Words do not do justice to the ambiance created by the surrrondings, views, food, staff and facilities. I'll just say the experience is like living inside a beautiful... More

Dear JimT091; Thanks for the great review. I particularly appreciated the reference to Monet, as I am a painter and as yo saw throughout the hotel, there are many pieces of art and sculpture from my collection and even some of my work.

We went directly to this little hotel upon landing in San Jose. After a long over night flight the 15 minute drive to serenity was exactly what we needed before heading off to the more crowded and active La Fortuna area. The staff learned our names immediately and greeted us with a welcome drink as we checked in. Our adorable... More

Dear firefly615; We are so glad you loved our little hotel. I laughed so hard when I read your comment about falling mangoes, as we have those gigantic ones all throughout our grounds (which we call "mangas" because they are the gigantic version of the mango) as they are heavy when they fall from our trees. Next time, just pick... More

We picked this property from travel books and online recommendations. The photos didn't do it justice. The property is small with bungalows, and each has its own decor. Our room surpassed our expectations in every way, and while it rained most of our first afternoon there, and we were happy to just relax and enjoy the rain and tropical environment.... More

The convenient location close to the airport, friendly staff, an EXCELLENT chef, chlorine-free swimming pool and jacuzzi, a spa, and beautiful romantic landscaping make Finca Rosa Blanca an amazing spot to visit. Coupled with a working coffee plantation and the highest level of sustainability, it will leave you feeling great about your visit. Finca Rosa Blanca is great to relax... More

With the inconsistency of Costa Rican traffic (and roads in general), we wanted to end our honeymoon at a place near the airport. What an amazing choice! Finca Rosa Blanca feels like an entirely different world. You would never know that it's only 20 minutes away from SJO -- maybe even less, we stopped for ice cream. :-) My husband... More

I had an amazing experience here - the inn and service were personal and customized, down to every detail.

We originally built that room for my mother who wanted to "sleep in the clouds" and so we designed it i so it sits 40 feet above the coffee fields below with a 360 degree view of the central valley.

I absolutely loved this place. I stayed in three different locations while on my honeymoon and thought that it would be impossible to top the first but this place was wonderful.
