Lovely and peaceful. Great service. The Italian dishes in the restaurant are wonderful. Our group needed a variety of taxis at different times in the morning, and we were assisted nicely despite our late arrival. The rooms are comfortable and can accommodate a variety of combinations. Family friendly.

We stayed here two nights before flying out back to L.A. and I have to say that I was very pleased with the staff and the service provided. The highlight of our stay was Alexa who is the hotel manager. She was very friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Don't get fooled like me...she speaks at least 3 languages... More

I spent 6 nights here and used Hotel La Rosa de America as my "home base" for day trips with the rental car. Most of the other guests tend to stay only one or two nights before they leave or start their journey in Costa Rica. The room was clean and the mattress was comfortable. I have always slept very...

We stayed at this property for one night, at the beginning of a 10-day visit to Costa Rica. The property was easy to find with our GPS.

La Rosa de America, outside Alajuela town centre is an oasis with beautiful gardens. New cabins were added in the last year and we got one of those.
