We stayed one night at the Hotel La Rosa de America, on our way to the airport. The hotel has lovely grounds and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an early flight and the hotel provided us with a packed breakfast. It is about 15 minutes to the airport when there is no traffic. We stayed in... More

This was our first and last stop of our Costa Rican vacation. The hotel arranged our rental car, airport transportation and even provided a pack-n-play for our 2 year old. We loved the grounds and the staff. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend Hotel La Rosa to our friends and family.

The rooms, grounds, and restaurant are all top-notch, but it is the friendly professional staff that made this a paradise for us. Their multi-lingual skills and concern for all the guest needs made us feel very comfortable. Anxious to book another trip to Costa Rica for the chance to stay here.

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.
