Good, quiet location - very little airport noise. Lovely property. Room adequate for our two night stay (on the small side and a/c didn't work first night - corrected next day). Restaurant was cozy, nice outside dining area; varied menu, yummy dishes. Note: Dinner only available in their busy season. Included continental breakfast was also most enjoyable.

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...

Located in a *very* quiet area, this immaculately maintained compound is secure, beautiful, and spacious, with a pool, free wifi, and AC in some rooms. We stayed in a "superior" room, which was above-average in size for a Costa Rican hotel (could have slept 5, with a bunk bed, twin bed, and queen) and included AC. Room was very clean,...

Enclosed in a beautiful garden, this hotel has a lot of charm. This is not a luxury hotel, so you will find that not everything is perfect. But it has everything you need and clean. I loved the little bungalows dispersed among the garden, each with their own wall painting outside. The chair outside the bedroom to admire the garden,...

We stayed here one night on our way to other parts of Costa Rica. We were delighted by the charm of this hotel and the lovely garden setting. The rooms are fairly simple, but clean and well cared for. The breakfast was especially delicious with lots of options including beans and rice, eggs, bread, jam, juice, fresh fruit, etc.

Garden/like setting with low cottage room helpful staff, flowers and plants are so soothing. Small pool in relaxing setting. Breakfast comes with the room and they serve dinner. So glad we found this and would stay again.

We stayed here just 1 night upon our arrival in CR. Our room rate included airport transfer, which was very convenient. The hotel is very charming, one of a kind. Beautiful landscaping and nice small pool area. We had a room with 1 double and a bunk bed. The space was a little tight for 4 but it was not...

Thank you for your review! We do feel that we offer a unique experience as we are not the normal box-style airport hotel. Thank you for your compliment about our gardens, we work very hard to keep them beautiful. We host many families so we do have some room options with a bunk bed for the kids. We hope you...

Hi, we rented a room at la Rosa de America and were very satisfied. We were looking for a place to stay for the first night near the airport to be able to pick up our car rental and this hotel was perfect for that. The rooms are small but they are clean. The site has a nice pool area,...

What a lovely place in the back roads of Alajuela. The cheaper rooms tend to be near the gate or reception and are quite noisy, also no a/c and the fan isn't really up to keeping it comfortable during the heat of the day. Go for a superior room, spacious, clean and comfortable with a/c. Well kept gardens and a...

As lots of other reviews say, this is a perfect place to start or finish a trip to Costa Rica. It's close to the airport but in a rural area and quiet. Staff were lovely especially Blanca and Ana and the waiter. Rooms are all on ground level almost in individual cabins with flowers painted on the outside and set...
