that's a joke with one of the managers, but what's not a joke is the laid back comfort for la Rosa. My wife and I spent the last night leg of our CR trip. Once we found it 9which was not easy with our map nearing darkness) we were warmly greeted , had a nice dinner and order ice to... More

La Rosa de America is a real find, close to the airport, yet it feels like it is out in the country. The gardens are beautiful, the pool is cool and welcoming on a hot day,the rooms are fresh and clean, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. What more could a traveller ask for? The restaurant serves the breakfast... More

Love how green it is here without having to travel too far from the airport. Peaceful too. My daughter loved the pool. The accommodations are clean and cozy; the staff very warm and friendly. Will come back again.

This fabulous little hotel in a quiet suburb west of the SJO Airport in Costa Rica is nothing short of sensational . . . what makes it so ? The smallness, the layout, the gardens, the pool area, the STAFF (!), and the food ! If you want a good rest in a quiet place with the best climate in... More

This is a very nice layover hotel near the San Jose international airport for when you have a departure the next day. A beautifully landscaped and secure courtyard greets you along with a very clean and refreshing swimming pool. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The beds are sufficient for a single nights rest. Some may say it is... More

Thank you for your review and your compliments of our hotel and staff. We ensure that our staff all read the comments on line - they take great pride in their "report card". The neighbourhood is actually quite safe - except for rampaging cars but that is typical across Costa Rica. We are far more safe and secure than most... More

A lovely place to stay before flying out of Costa Rica. Close enough to the airport without being right in the city and only a ten minute trip in time to catch an early flight. Very comfortable rooms set within spacious and attractive gardens and very helpful staff. Nice pool. Our shuttle arrived in plenty of time to get us... More

It was a pleasure to host you and talk with each of you! Apologies for the WIFI problem that suddenly materialized directly outside your two rooms! Fortunately it was an easy fix! We hope that you had a comfortable trip back to New Zealand and England - both far away and beautiful destinations! We are happy that both La Rosa... More
