Hotel La Rosa de America was a great spot. We stayed there the night we arrived in Costa Rica and the night before we departed. The hotel was both a great welcome to Costa Rica and a pleasant way to end our trip. We were travelling with family and booked a suite with bunk beds in one room and a...

If you are looking for a nice place to stay close to the airport that isn't a chain like Days Inn or Best Western this is a great spot. We arrived late and the hotel arranged a pick up for us from the airport as well as transportation for us the next morning to get to the shuttle bus. Room...

We couldn't have been more pleased with the help with received from the owner/staff with booking a tour, getting info on the area and calling taxis. Prior to staying, e-mails were returned promptly. Walking through the door of the room, however, was disappointing. The bedding and curtains were very outdated and mismatched from the upholstery. Even though the room was...

Hello and thank you for your review! For us, being helpful and knowledgeable are cornerstones of a tourism related business. We are glad we could help you with your trip plans!

We stayed one night after arriving late from Canada. The hotel staff had arranged a taxi for us and told us the price of the fare in advance. The pick up was smooth, the hotel was clean, breakfast was good. We will definitely stay there again.

We had a great stay the first night of our trip. If you want to experience Costa Rica, don't book the American hotel chains! The grounds are beautiful and the service excellent. And you can't beat the free breakfast with amazing banana bread, eggs, and fresh fruit. Not all the rooms have air conditioning so make sure you ask if...

We are happy you enjoyed our grounds, property, breakfast and service! It was a pleasure to host you! With respect to air-conditioning, we are installing it in all our Superior Cabins but as you indicate, due to our favourable climate, it is really not needed at night . Therefore we are not planning to install it in our Standard Cabins...

We stayed two nights at the beginning of our trip and one at the end. This is a great hotel, close to the airport but far enough away to be quiet and restful. Breakfast was good, the rooms were clean, the gardens were lovely. The front desk staff were wonderful - very helpful, sweet and friendly.

We appreciate your compliments of our hotel. Our largest "complaint" from guests truthfully is that they did not book extra nights with us so they could see many of the incredible things in our "backyard" and unwind at the same time. I am happy you liked our highly visible and rather pink signature umbrellas!! Certainly functional, they also stand out!...

A business associate and I were accomodated perfectly during our stay at this quiet, well run establishment. Though business travelers comprise a minority of their guests, the staff at La Rosa de America are top notch at anticipating and meeting needs. Hotels that specialize in business people rarely deliver like La Rosa De America. From transportation to communication (including perfect...
