Reviewed 19 January 2014

would be this property as we found. It was a great alternative to the airport and downtown, we spent two nights here and didn't regret it. The property reminded me of something in Mexico, decor whimisical, bold colors and playful architecture..lots of rounded corners and white exterior. Think it might be too much in this vein, but read an article...

Dear Kokosandiego; Thanks for writing in- it was nice to hear a bit about your stay and your thoughts. The original owners are us- my mother, Sylvia Jampol worked with our family starting in 1985 to build Finca Rosa Blanca and her vision, whimsy and optimism is what fueled everything we did or have done since she died in 1993....

We spent four nights at Finca Rosa Blanca in early January. At first we thought that perhaps four nights might be too long, however, we found that length of time was ideal to do everything we wanted to do. First of all, the resort itself is absolutely gorgeous. The setting of it will take your breath away. The units are...

Finca Rosa Blanca exceeded our expectations. We'd heard so many wonderful stories about a stay in Costa Rica, so this trip was a very big adventure for us.

We reached Finca Rosa Blanca at around 9pm after a couple of days white water rafting. The welcome was warm but we didn't get the refreshing welcome drink we saw people getting the next day - that would have been a nice touch after the long journey. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi are lovely, the grounds beautiful and the location...

Dear Londontravel; Thanks for writing in about your stay and your concerns. We are always interested in what our guests have to say and we take these comments very seriously.

Dear CMK29; Thank you for taking the time to write in to TripAdvisor and for your nice comments.

The site, coffee, pool and idea are great. The views and the coffee tour very nice. You can see that it was once sumptuous. However, the rooms now need refurbishing. Everything a little dated and dingy. Do not stay on ground floor if you can help it. A lot of insects in our room from outdoors, ants on the walls,...

Not only is this place overrated and a bit in need of some refurbishing and air conditioning, but the folding bed/ cot that they provided for a grown adult to sleep on was totally inadequate and not fit for anyone to ever sleep on. I was shocked!! Also, the spa/Jacuzzi was above ground and covered so I couldn't use it,...
