Combined family of six on holiday. Stayed night we flew in and night we flew out. Management helped arrange rental car. Two triples needed, we were upgraded just because they had openings for our second night into these two very nice Villas. We loved the lodging here. Clean, helpful helpful staff, tastefully decorated, very accommodating. I have been to CR... More

I spent 6 nights here and used Hotel La Rosa de America as my "home base" for day trips with the rental car. Most of the other guests tend to stay only one or two nights before they leave or start their journey in Costa Rica. The room was clean and the mattress was comfortable. I have always slept very...

We stayed at this property for one night, at the beginning of a 10-day visit to Costa Rica. The property was easy to find with our GPS. Although it's off what appears to be a pretty main road, you could not hear any outside noise. Property - The property is gorgeous and meticulously maintained. There are several small cabins located... More

La Rosa de America, outside Alajuela town centre is an oasis with beautiful gardens. New cabins were added in the last year and we got one of those. The room was comfortable, spacious and well supplied. We didn’t use the pool but the area looked appealing and well kept. The staff was friendly and attentive, especially Edwin, who waited our...

Gardens lovely and obliging staff but room was outdated with a poor shower. Room for a comfortable chair but no chair in room and an acute lack of chairs to relax in the very pleasant pool area.Both Dinner and Breakfast far below standard.

This was the second year in a row that we have stayed here (for the first and last nights of our Costa Rica vacation) and we thoroughly enjoyed it once again. The landscaped gardens are beautiful, the pool is clean, cool, and refreshing, the cabins are quaint and comfortable, and the breakfasts and dinners are good. New cabins have been... More

For the last 5 years, we have stayed here when we have the need to be overnight near the airport...probably 7 times. This is a precious boutique hotel near the airport, but far enough away to not have any traffic from the highway or airplane noise. It has comfortable beds, clean rooms, beautiful well-kept gardens all around, a good buffet... More

Located in the sprawling city of Alajuela, it is a little garden of Eden. It has very well kept grounds and facilities. As many people have already mentioned, a perfect starting point and/or ending point for your vacation in Costa Rica. It's relative closeness to the airport makes it an ideal place. Not to be4 overlooked are some of the... More
