We were pleasantly surprised by this little hotel as a way point after arriving in Costa Rica and again before flying back to the USA. It is relatively close to the airport ($15 taxi ride) and is tucked away in a quiet, residential area with a beautiful garden and pool area. The grounds and rooms are clean and comfortable.

La rosa is a wonderful little gem of a hotel, not far from the airport, and yet very quiet. The garden is glorious, the rooms spanking clean, and comfy. The food at breakfast is ample and yummy. Dinner is excellent as well. The staff is professional and very helpful. I recommend La Rosa without reservation!

We stayed at La Rose de America for one night before flying out. We booked based on other positive reviews and were overall in agreement. We stayed in two rooms, #9 and #7, both close to the entrance gate. Upon check-in it was apparent that La Rose is well run and maintained, and that the staff are well treated. My... More

We chose Hotel la Rosa de America for our first and last nights in CR because it was close to the airport, and well away from the hustle and bustle of San Jose.

A relaxing place, friendly staff, good food, near the airport. On the down side the hotel is outdated and the beds are old and uncomfortable. If they replace beds I would come back, but I think I will try some place new on my next trip.
