We stayed at the Hotel La Rosa de America for our first night in Costa Rica. Getting from the car rental place to the hotel at night was a little tricky since they apparently don't believe in street or exit signs in Costa Rica. But, we figured it out and found a very nice and friendly hotel. It was just what we needed for our first night's stay. We didn't stay there our last night because we'd be leaving too early the next morning for breakfast, and the room rate was a little high for just the room itself. But, if you're looking for a calm place for a first or last night's stay, this is a very nice place.
