The hotel is a wonderful place to start and end a vacation in Costa Rica. The staff is very knowledgeable to CR info, friendly and accommodating. The grounds are impeccably kept and the pool is perfect. The onsite restaurant serves a good dinner for a fair price and the "included" breakfast is hearty. The only complaint I could come up...

Excellent all-around, staff communicates very well, local food within walking distance (not to mention the food on site is excellent as well), prices reasonable, and within 15 minutes of the airport. When traveling next time, I will try to spend at least 2 nights here as the pool is relaxing, the grounds very pretty and a relaxing beginning/end to adventure... More

I traveled to Hotel La Rosa de America in July and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The hotel management and staff are attentive and incredibly helpful.

We stayed eight days at the LaRosa, using it as our travel base. We have traveled and stayed at many places, but this was, without hesitation, the most pleasurable. From the wonderfully helpful staff, to the beautifully quiet surroundings, our room was the Superior with AC and was comfortable, roomy, and cared for each day. We ate every night in... More

Pros: perhaps the best garden I've ever seen, nice pool, very clean rooms, updated bathrooms, bar and restaurant onsite for pool-side drinks, convenient to airport, comfy beds, small detached one level cottage rooms, Superior rooms have AC - though you don't really need it. Cons: restaurant food is just ok, wish there was coffee in the room, breakfast starting at... More

Thank you for your very clear review of our services! We are especially grateful for your comments about our gardens. We work very hard to blend nature and beauty with a simple night's stay near the airport for the majority of our guests. We are not including coffee in the rooms in part due to the garden hotel aspect of... More

Great service, food, and atmosphere. Edwin was fantastic. We stayed there for our first night and enjoyed it so on the return leg of our trip, we booked there again.

Great service, delicious food and the location is fantastic... close to the airport and a great stopping point before driving up to the Rain Forest. Love this place! There is a beautiful pool and the grounds are lush and clean. We all felt very safe and welcomed here.

Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience here.

The second day he was at the... More
