My friend and I stayed 3 nights. The owners were there, we praised what they offered for the money. Everything was wonderfull , and pleasant, as was the service. If you want to feel appreciated, safe, and cared for, look no more! I will stay there again, they made me feel as though we became friends, no said. Greg M... More

we stayed at this hotel last year and were happy to return again in February for a couple of days at the start of our trip. The breakfast area has been extended to provide an outdoor dining area which is very nice, and a few additional rooms have also been added since last year. The pool area is lovely, very... More

This is a really nice hotel in lovely grounds and very good if you are coming from or going to the airport. The room we had was recently refurbished and really nice and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.

My husband and I stayed here after an overnight flight to San Jose. They arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us directly to the hotel. The taxi driver - Tony Jimenez (thru Easy Transfer) is one of the best drivers you could ever have in Costa Rica. He drove us to Poas Volcano for... More

Stayed here on my last night in CR. The hotel is about 15 minutes taxi ride (about $15) from the airport. The rooms are generous and very clean, the layout extremely well thought out - with plenty of places to hang/store things and really make yourself at home. The rooms are ground level, about 10 seconds walk from the pool... More

Repeat guests and guests who recommend our hotel to others without reservation are very important to us! Thank you for your comments. We do apologize for not being able to serve you supper upon your arrival. Many establishments in Costa Rica close at around 9 pm due to the local bus schedules. All our restaurant staff rely on the bus... More

In short- great value. We stayed here in Feb 15, arriving after a late night flight into San Jose. The hotel sent a cab to meet us at the airport, ($20 plus tip) which is likely a good idea since they are a bit of a hike from the airport. You would definitely not want to try to find this... More

Great value is one of our most important indicators of success for us. Thank you for letting us know that we are providing this to our guests!

We picked this hotel for our last night in Costa Rica because it's very close to the airport. It was the perfect choice, staff very kind, especially Edwin waiter, and Abner, concierge/guard. The rooms were roomy and beds very comfortable. Our only mistake was not taking bus into town as we learned later there is much to see, many local... More

We stayed at La Rosa for 2 nights at the start and finish of our tour of Costa Rica, so on hindsight can say that the rooms are some of the cleanest, comfiest and best furnished of many we stayed in. The rooms are light and airy and when you are living out of a suitcase for weeks, you appreciate... More

We are so glad you were able to spread out in comfort in our rooms and that you enjoyed our gardens so much. We have put a lot of effort in improving the interiors of all our cabins and part of that improvement was the design and creation of new space enhancing furniture. Hopefully you had a wonderful trip throughout... More

This hotel has beautiful landscaping. (Picture say more than words.) I was welcomed with the offer of a complementary drink. All of the staff were fantastic and very customer oriented. The room was clean and quite. They have 24-hour Concierge/Guard services.

Thank you for noticing some of the design details of the hotel. We try to hide many of the details so that guests feel the difference but don't know exactly why! There are virtually no straight lines in La Rosa, with paths, buildings flowerbeds etc all staggered or curved for character! We feel this makes the property more natural feeling... More

This place is nice for a one night stay as you come into costa rica/ leave. The grounds are pretty, and the breakfast is ok. We also had dinner at the on-site restaurant and it was pretty tasty. The pool seemed nice, though we didn't have time to go in. The owner was friendly and took a lot of time... More

Thank you for your review. Our standard rooms are definitely smaller than our equivalent superior rooms. Unfortunately we are not able to alter this situation except in providing two levels of pricing for our guests. We would be very happy to host you again - this time in one of our larger and much newer Superior rooms! We are glad... More
