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.
