We had received a recommendation from a friend who stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and we're so glad started our trip to Costa Rica here. We were greeted at the airport by our friendly driver, Manolo, who drove us the 20 minutes to the hotel. We were greeted with delightfully refreshing welcome beverages upon our arrival... More

We stayed at the Finca Rosa Blanca for 2 nights on the 12th August 2016 and we were totally enthralled with the place. The rooms were very characterful and very well maintained. It was a pleasure to stay somewhere in Costa Rica that hasn't lost it's charm and become too Americanized. The staff were very attentative and the food and... More
