My boyfriend and I stayed one night in this hotel in May 2010. We arrived so late (maybe around 10-11p) and the owner was so kind and accommodating. This was the only hotel we booked before departing for our trip and we were pretty much just going to rent a car and wing it. He was so helpful explaining good places to go and took the time to talk to us about Costa Rica even though it was past 11pm. We had a great sleep and waking up to sunshine and the beautiful gardens was so nice. His wife made us breakfast and she was so kind, and Canadian :). We wished we had more time at this hotel to relax on their beautiful property. The town was a bit intimidating with all the gates and barbed wire but we soon learned every town in Costa Rica is like that. We felt very safe at this hotel and we really appreciated how kind and helpful the owners were. We'd definitely stay here again if we need a place to stay near the airport (it's still a bit of a drive, and taxi's are expensive!). I think we paid around $80-$90US for the night. It was definitely better than staying at the Holiday Inn Express across from the airport which we stayed at before we left to go back home, that was super expensive and we were so bored! Hotel La Rosa definitely has more charm :)
