As with many others we used la Rosa for our in and out stopovers. Set in the midst of San Juan suburbia, it is a delightful setting with all the basics that you require. The rooms were adequate but some better than others. We found cabin 2 very well equipped. The key strength of this establishment is it's staff, the...

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!
