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. Felt like we were staying in a more expensive hotel than what we were. They helped us arrange a rental car, too. They have a restaurant and pool. It's about... More

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. Upon arrival the owner (I can only assume as he never spoke to us) was engaged in an interview and without acknowledging us asked his staff to "take care of that outside', "that" referring to the checking in of a guest at his hotel. The second day he was at the... More

I am shocked that you felt that the Hotel Ownership was systematically ignoring you. Please understand that this was not at all intentional or representative of any policy or custom at the hotel regarding guest relations. As the Owner of La Rosa personally responding to your TA review, I would like to take this opportunity to both assuage your feelings... More

Beautiful and well kept gardens, rooms clean, comfortable and very cute. Lots of chairs to sit in, clean and refreshing pool and Edwin runs the kitchen/ dining area and is a great cook! Ask him for his special drink- the Edwin Special- it's wonderful! Coffee/tea is available by the pool early in the morning before breakfast. You can walk to... More

My family consisting of my wife and two children stayed at the hotel on 06-29-2014 overnight. The stay was wonderful. The staff was great and very attentive.

We look forward to seeing you again at La Rosa in the near future! It is always pleasing for us to see the children enjoying our pool area especially now that we have all new furniture, chairs, recliners, sun shade etc. The World Cup for Costa Rica is now over. Exceptional showing however for the country considering its size. This... More

La Rosa de America is a small hotel in the suburbs of Alajuela, ideally situated for Juan Santamaría airport which is some 15 minutes away. The hotel is not very easy to find and may not be in the most salubrious area but this is of no consequence once you pass through the gates and enter this lovely property. The... More

We appreciate the comments about our staff and in particular our Restaurant Staff. We will pass your observations on to them. We apologize for the WIFI blackout in your area of the hotel.

Stayed three nights in this lovely garden hotel. We love it very much! 1) Location, just out of the city Alajuela, a quite place! 2) Garden, just living in a beautiful garden, so beautiful! 3) Room: clean and comfortable. 4) WiFi, great, using every where in the garden.
