If your looking for a place that has serene and tranquility...look no further; Hotel La Rosa de America has it all. From the Costa Rican typical breakfast with "Gallo Pinto" to the botanic beauty of the garden of Eden. From the waking sound of a rooster's crow, to the rhythmic sound of rain on a tin roof. This best kept... More

Nice friendly staff, I showed up last minute because the original place I was going to stay did not work out. Pool was lovely. A/C and fan were pleasant. Had to change rooms the second night and the room was smaller but still served my need. Would definitely recommend as a place to get to and from airport but have... More

We stayed here on arrival and the night before departure of our recent holiday. We arrived late but the night porter was expecting us.

Small decent hotel west of the airport. Not quite close enough to be considered an "airport hotel" though, roughly a 20-30 minute cab ride to SJO. Spotty wifi at best. Nice beds, buffet style breakfast (eggs, fruit juice, cereal, rice & beans, coffee). Cable TV with two channels in english. Pool, immaculate gardens, office staff can book services for you,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate your comments! Normally, transit to SJO should only take 15 min but sometimes with traffic - especially if choosing the route through Alajuela, the time can be longer. The best route is along the highway - much faster, though longer distance. Please accept our apologies for the poor... More
