Great place for your first or last night in Costa Rica. Nice landscaped grounds. Our room was nicely decorated,inside and out. Friendly service. Secure parking. We walked a couple blocks to find dinner and truly enjoyed ourselves. The pool is large, although a bit cool,like many pools in Costa Rica. We were leaving too early for breakfast, but they supplied... More

My wife and I spent one night at this hotel before our flight back to the US. The hotel grounds are nice and well cared for. We were in a premium room and the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The AC unit took a while to cool the room but once it cooled down we slept well.... More

We stayed there two nights at the end of August 2014 and we really enjoyed it. There's a very warm and familiar atmosphere present. The staff was very nice, the rooms clean and well maintained. A small and homemade breakfast buffet and the breakfast terrasse outside invited us to stay longer. it was a very relaxed stay with a beautiful... More

This is a beautifully landscaped and nice, clean hotel close to the airport in San Jose. I believe the cab ride was $15. They have a nice pool and a restaurant serving breakfast which is included and dinner if you desire. The beds were very comfortable and the water was hot. We enjoyed spending 2 nights here even though we... More

The hotel is a wonderful place to start and end a vacation in Costa Rica. The staff is very knowledgeable to CR info, friendly and accommodating. The grounds are impeccably kept and the pool is perfect. The onsite restaurant serves a good dinner for a fair price and the "included" breakfast is hearty. The only complaint I could come up...

Excellent all-around, staff communicates very well, local food within walking distance (not to mention the food on site is excellent as well), prices reasonable, and within 15 minutes of the airport. When traveling next time, I will try to spend at least 2 nights here as the pool is relaxing, the grounds very pretty and a relaxing beginning/end to adventure... More

I traveled to Hotel La Rosa de America in July and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The hotel management and staff are attentive and incredibly helpful.

We stayed eight days at the LaRosa, using it as our travel base. We have traveled and stayed at many places, but this was, without hesitation, the most pleasurable. From the wonderfully helpful staff, to the beautifully quiet surroundings, our room was the Superior with AC and was comfortable, roomy, and cared for each day. We ate every night in... More
