Our trip to FRB was three nights of splendor in the peaks above San Jose surrounded by a sweet plantation full of relaxation and ease. Kids swimming, adult massage, endless coffee tasting and tours. The staff was beyond our wildest dreams, as they treated us like family and we left with heavy hearts hoping to one day return! Our villas... More

Had a fabulous time at Finca Rosa Blanca, it is a beautiful hotel with all the amenities you could want and near San Jose so you get the city feel.

This place was fantastic on every level! Calm and serene, the natural beauty and wildlife are breathtaking. The view is worth the trip alone. Near a nice small town, it is close enough to enjoy local nightlife, but also secluded enough to escape into your own world. The staff were all very kind and accomodating, and like to grow a...

I spent four days at Finca Rosa Blanca. It was a wonderful alternative to San Jose. It is secluded and relaxing. Because it sits on a coffee plantation the scenery was gorgeous. The rooms were quite comfortable with a design that was charmingly unique. The location of Finca Rosa Blanca is perfect for doing activities in the area. We went... More

Stayed here two nights at the start of our trip and were so glad we did. This hotel had hands-down the friendliest staff. Very knowledgable about the area and had good recommendations. They arranged a tour to Poas volcano, which was worth the one hour drive each way. Their coffee tour was a somewhat strenuous walk, but was worth it... More

I made the decision to stay here rather than in San Jose upon arriving in Costa Rica. It is really close to the airport but is far removed from the city. The roads leading in wound through other plantations, farms and greenery. We were greeted with drinks upon arrival. The overall laid back vibe was the perfect way to start... More

We only stayed here one night so that we could be near to the airport the last day of our trip. Finca Rosa Blanca is about 20 minutes from the airport but seems far removed from the city. It is difficult to find, even with a GPS. We asked a taxi driver who gave us free directions and we found... More

This was a perfect last destination in Costa Rica. We stayed only two nights, and we want to return for sure. The idea was to stay somewhere near the airport (15 mins) but not in the city. Someplace that would be different that would extend our nature holiday, and that is what we got. The place was one of the... More
