This is a beautiful hotel with extremely courteous and friendly staff. The pool was relaxing and enjoyable. My family stayed here for a few days before moving on to the airport. We had pre-booked our diner for both nights and it was delicious! The room was clean, designed well, and made us really feel like home. The beds were extremely... More

Wonderful grounds, lovely staff, feels like an idyllic home! The hotel is convenient to the airport and Zoo Ave. The pool is lovely and the grounds have beautiful gardens. The rooms are in little cabins throughout the gardens.

We initially had booked a hotel in San jose to serve as our base for short trips; somehow serendipity intervened and I found Hotel La Rosa and pictures of its gorgeous green grounds. So, this hotel became our home base 3 times during our Costa Rica/Panama travels. And it served that role practically and perfectly. The hotel is just about... More

We decided to spend two nights at the La Rosa de America instead of spending time in San Jose. We were looking for a relaxing way to start our trip through Costa Rica and this was perfect. The hotel is close to the airport. The front desk will help arrange transportation for you and it was very reasonable (even though... More

We definitely prefer the experience of operating a hotel in the La Garita area rather than in San Jose as well so we can understand your desire to relax outside the busy city. It was our pleasure to arrange transport for you at the airport. We hope you do come back soon and we can help you again organize some... More

Beautiful hotel with nice gardens. The inside of room was very nice with a beautiful mural. The people that worked there were very nice and friendly. We had a very early morning tour one day and left before breakfast, so they fixed us a nice "to go" breakfast to take with us. Breakfast and dinner there was pretty good. The... More

Due to Costa Rican law, smoking is no longer permitted in our around buildings especially where it can affect others. We used to allow smoking on the porches but we have been required to change this policy to ensure compliance with local regulation with the health ministry. We are very happy that you so enjoyed our gardens and pool area.... More

We stayed here three times over a three week time period because it is in an excellent location near to the San Jose airport. Each time we found the owner and staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and nice. While only some of the rooms have air conditioning, this is not a problem as the temperature drops... More

I was there with my family on vacation in December 2015. Very nice rooms, well-maintained, nice surroundings. Food at restaurant was good, waiter friendly and funny. Only caveat was rooster nearby which started making noise quite early in the morning near our room.

Well... we will be hunting rooster soon! In the past we actually have actively purchased roosters from local families in order to keep the population to a bare minimum. The La Rosa area is so quiet in comparison to most areas of Costa Rica, that sometimes these random noises can be quite penetrating but we are actually very proud of... More

This truly is an oasis convenient and close to the San Jose airport. The property garden was beautiful and well maintained and very peaceful. Rooms were basic and clean. Michael and Alexi were attentive to all needs. Thank you Michael for the pannenkoek and Alexi for the maple syrup.
