We arrived in Costa Rica around 4:30, dealt with the fun of picking up our rental car, and made it to the hotel around 6:30. We were greeted upon arrival by a member of the exemplary staff at this small boutique hotel about 15 minutes from the airport. We were tired and ready to decompress and this hotel gave us the perfect environment to do it. The hotel is situated in carefully kept gardens which are clearly well maintained with great pride by the hotel's owners, providing some lovely walks around the facilities. Dinner at the hotel - like most food in Costa Rica - was fresh and delicious, and the room accomodated our family of four easily. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful, and the owners are clearly proud of their property! We left early the next day as we had a busy schedule, but we were left with a wonderful start to our Costa Rica adventure! We will stay here again when next we come to Costa Rica.
I want to add, there are closer hotels to the Airport. Some are the large chains, some are smaller and look nice...I can't speak for them. The point I want to make though is that if you want to get off the plane and just immediately check in somewhere and relax, you might look elsewhere. But for us, going the extra few minutes to get to La Rosa de America was DEFINITELY worth it. It's only an extra few minutes, and the great treatment we received, the beautiful grounds, the good dinner and the wonderful, home made breakfast, and the overall welcoming hospitality and ambiance of La Rosa made it very, very much worth the extra few minutes it took to get there. It's also very convenient for taking off to Poas, which we did. Very much liked it here!
