Amazing grounds, clean, comfortable rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We stayed here (11 extended family members) and everyone enjoyed their stay... Only stayed one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Had dinner in their restaurant, the food was very good and the service great. We had to leave very early in the morning so the staff offered... More

Lovely, quiet place to stay close to SJO airport (far enough away that jet noise is not a problem). It is close to a street with several small places to eat, if you want variety. We stayed after arriving at the airport and then again the night before departure. The breakfast (included in price of room) was great each morning.... More

I can't say enough nice things about Hotel la Rosa de America! We stayed here for our 1st night in Costa Rica before heading to the Caribbean to volunteer with the sea turtles. Unfortunately, I got very sick while at the research station and had to head back to Alajuela. After a 4 hour drive, we were greeted by a... More

We stayed here the first and last nights of our family vacation. The breakfast is great, offering both Tico and continental options. If your flight is early and your shuttle leaves before the dining room opens, they'll pack you something to go. There is a restaurant a short walk away if you arrive after the hotel's dining room closes. They... More

We do believe in good breakfast options! Traveling can be stressful and getting a solid breakfast for all our guests is one of our most important tasks at La Rosa! It was our pleasure to help with your bus tickets to the coast. Hope to see you again soon! More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at La Rosa De America- 20 mins taxi ride away from the airport(arranged by the hotel).

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay in a superior room. It is regrettable about your driver being late but traffic is getting rather unpredictable now throughout the country. You are welcome for the extra drinks and snacks. Again, thank you for your recommendation! More

We normally wouldn't "splurge" on an airport hotel but am glad we chose our superior room here. The pool was clean, the gardens and green space lovely, and the beds, sheets and pillows very cozy (not to taken for granted in CR!). We had an early flight the next morning - before breakfast was served - and the night guard... More

Stayed here while waiting for the rest of our party to arrive in Costa Rica. They have clean rooms, a lovely garden, and a refreshing pool. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Our flight was getting in close to sunset and we had a 1 1/2 hour drive to Jaco, so we stayed at Hotel La Rosa de America the first night. A small property on the road into Alajuela, it was the perfect place to rest up and prepare for our Costa Rican adventure. Rooms are small but quiet; the beds... More

I returned to the hotel for a third time to kick off a women's trip that I lead each February. Because this small family-owned hotel is off the main road, you would never know that you're in a busy urban area in close proximity to the international airport. The grounds are lovely, and the whole property is clean and very... More
