“Close to the airport without having to stay in San Jose”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

This hotel is in a great location. We stayed 2 non-consecutive nights. One night before my parents left the country and the other night before the rest of the group (6 and a baby) left CR. The rooms were clean and very nice, a great family hotel with bunkbeds in some of the rooms. The staff was extremely helpful in helping us order our dinner (pizza delivered) and do our laundry. We were in Costa Rica for 11 days so we had a bunch of dirty laundry. They did the laundry on short notice ($7.00 u.s. per load) and brought it to our room. The fresh baked banana bread and Costa Rican coffee for breakfast was wonderful.

Had a wonderful experience at La Rosa de America. The rooms were clean and quaint. Staff was very helpful with scheduling taxis and helping to make phone calls home (thanks Grisska!). Enjoyed the banana bread and juice for breakfast. The gardens were pretty and well-kept. The fenced grounds felt safe and secure. Good restaurants within short walking distance.

I stayed only one night, just to see the poas.
Great service, was surprised when they called me to Brazil to confirm my room, got help with everything I needed, transportation, tour, etc
The place has great energy!! and is like sleeping in the middle of the forest. Only birds and nature noises to get a good night sleep.

This is a great place to stay if you have an early flight out - although it seems to be on the other side of Alajuela from the airport, a taxi ride is just $15 and the hotel really caters for those on the red eye flights! We only stayed one night, but the room was very comfortable with a good shower and cable television. Sensing we were tired after our journey, the receptionist took care of everything, booking our cab in the morning and offering us 'Go bags' - handy portable breakfasts which we could munch the next day en route to the airport. I don't know how this hotel would be for a long stay, as it is in a strange area of town and most of our fellow residents seemed to be business types, but the grounds are lovely, the staff are helpful and the location is convenient.

Also, a shout out for Cherry's bar which is the nearest bar/restaurant. It looks a bit 'down and out', but the food is excellent, very fresh and well presented and the atmosphere is great! And its only a 200 metre bumble down the road........

This is a very nice hotel and close enough to the airport to make it convenient.

We enjoyed our stay!

The prices are a bit high, but maybe all the hotels in this area are more expensive than elsewhere in Costa Rica.

Also, they could do a bit better job at breakfast. Same food every day gets boring.

That said, it was very comfortable and clean and nice.

My wife and I used this hotel as an entry point to Costa Rica. The hotel is conveniently close to the San Jose airport. The grounds of the hotel are secure and very beautiful. While not being luxurious, the rooms are very clean and are in keeping with the Costa Rican experience that we were seeking. The staff is outstanding and was very helpful in starting our self-directed vacation. We were so impressed with the facilities and staff that we also used the hotel as our exit point from Costa Rica. I only wish that we could have stayed longer.
