Ok. So this hotel has a beautiful garden, pretty good rooms, great beds, very helpful staff, an ok pool and a nice breakfast. Then why complain about the price? Maybe it is because of the fact that this was the most expensive hotel during our stay in Costa Rica, probably because its proximity to the airport. But then again, no.... More

We would like to thank this guest for his/her observations about Costa Rica in general and specifically about Hotel La Rosa de America. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! The matter of cost of living (or value for expectations if you prefer) in Costa Rica is indeed high. Many travelers expect costs similar to that... More

We decided to stay at La Rosa because it advertised as being safe, pretty and peaceful. Their advertising was accurate! We used this hotel for our first stay in Costa Rica and the reception staff were very helpful in giving suggestions and ideas for our trip which we had not completely planned out due to lack of time. We used... More

The Hotel La Rosa de America was a great place to begin our Costa Rica trip. From the first inquiry until we drove off the property they were more than helpful. Grisska was incredible in helping us get reservations not just for the hotel but for a rental car and for a cell phone. They arranged for transportation from the... More

Thank you very much for your kind words! Grisska is a very valued employee to us and it's nice of you to commend her. We do try our very best to give as much help as possible. I do remember you - I was the person driving in that day, and my husband and I own the hotel. We used... More

For comfort and simplicity in a setting that cannot be beat in terms of natural beauty, La Rosa is the place to stay in Alajuela. While the rooms are simple, clean, and comfortable, the gardens are spectacular. Outside my doorstep stood a magnificent mango tree bearing fruit as sweet as candy. Delicious! Conveniently located, Alajuela and its environs are a... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely little hotel for our recent trip to Costa Rica, and it beat our expectations in every way. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived before dinner and were given recommendations where to eat - there were a lot of places really close by. The room was extremely clean and the... More

Our room was small, but o.k. for one night. The pool very dirty. Not really inviting. So we don’t go for a swim but just sit beside the pool and spend the afternoon reading and surfing the internet. Wifi works fine, no hot water. This hotel has in the hotels listing a restaurant icon which they don’t have, so in... More

We did an exhaustive search of March to find when this guest stayed with us, but did not find anything in our records or emails. There was no record of a vegan dietary request, and we checked all the way back to January! We would really appreciate it if this guest could give us a few more details so we... More

Alajuela is a logical place to stay after arriving or just before leaving the airport, but from what I saw is pretty uninspiring on it's own. Don't be disuaded. The Hotel La Rosa is a fenced in arbor of mango trees and tropical greenery, with a great pool and walking distance to a butterfly garden and zoo that are great... More

We stayed at La Rosa in March for 5 days. It was perfectly located in the Central Valley which was the area we wanted to check out. The staff (especially Griskka) are extremely accomodating and will do whatever they can to assist you. This time we just stayed on our last nigt as we had a very early flight in... More
