We stayed a total of six nights - three at the start of our vacation and three at the end. The accommodation is in small cabins set in lovely gardens full of birds. The cabins are prettily decorated but a bit small. We moved to a larger room when we returned for the same price because it was low season...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 July 2016

I can't say enough nice things about Hotel la Rosa de America! We stayed here for our 1st night in Costa Rica before heading to the Caribbean to volunteer with the sea turtles. Unfortunately, I got very sick while at the research station and had to head back to Alajuela. After a 4 hour drive, we were greeted by a...

We stayed 2 days at this lovely hotel outside Alajuela. A bit old fashioned but in in a nice way. Small rooms, but well separated so it is quiet. Good air conditioning. Very nice dining facilities for breakfast as well as dinners. They take a lot of effort to decorate the individual buildings with many hand painted scenes and floral...

Hello and thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and had time to explore the gardens and enjoy our restaurant, and get out to see the town.

We were looking for a place to stay for our last night in Costa Rica near the airport and picked this place. Perfect! We loved it. On a quiet side street, comfortable room, nice pool, very good breakfast buffet, and secure parking in a nice neighborhood. And very nice staff too. Highly recommend this place. And reasonably priced.

Hello and thank you for your review! We do our best to attract a variety of local bird life to our gardens. We feel it is very important to offer more than just the usual front desk service - friendliness and helpfulness is a must. We hope you can come and visit us again soon, we enjoyed hosting you!

This is place nice enough. If you want A/C it will cost more but the rates arent bad. My family and I stayed there twice during our two weeks and would go back again. The breakfast is nothing special but at least they have it and its included.

Good, quiet location - very little airport noise. Lovely property. Room adequate for our two night stay (on the small side and a/c didn't work first night - corrected next day). Restaurant was cozy, nice outside dining area; varied menu, yummy dishes. Note: Dinner only available in their busy season. Included continental breakfast was also most enjoyable.

Located in a *very* quiet area, this immaculately maintained compound is secure, beautiful, and spacious, with a pool, free wifi, and AC in some rooms. We stayed in a "superior" room, which was above-average in size for a Costa Rican hotel (could have slept 5, with a bunk bed, twin bed, and queen) and included AC. Room was very clean,...

Enclosed in a beautiful garden, this hotel has a lot of charm. This is not a luxury hotel, so you will find that not everything is perfect. But it has everything you need and clean.

We stayed here one night on our way to other parts of Costa Rica. We were delighted by the charm of this hotel and the lovely garden setting. The rooms are fairly simple, but clean and well cared for. The breakfast was especially delicious with lots of options including beans and rice, eggs, bread, jam, juice, fresh fruit, etc.

Thank you for your review! We do try to be a unique option for those travellers looking for options beyond the big chain hotels, and we take great pride in our gardens. We make sure to offer the famous 'Gallo Pinto', a staple of the Costa Rica diet, along with normal breakfast options. Thank you for staying with us!
