La Rosa de America is a unique bed and breakfast hotel set on a gorgeous property. They are conveniently located near the San Jose International Airport (SJO). The hotel’s grounds are carefully manicured, with a tropical garden that holds a variety of native plants and sees an abundance of birds. There are 19 rooms available, set around the garden in seven different bungalows.

Each room comes with a private bathroom (with hot water), free Wi-Fi, ceiling fan, cable TV, beautiful Costa Rican artwork, and hardwood furniture. Superior rooms have air conditioning, bar fridge, high quality imported bedding, and plush towels. A small terrace in front of each room provides an excellent spot for relaxing, and there are beautiful wall murals painted by Costa Rican artists in the rooms and around the property.

Services include a free, full tropical buffet breakfast, free high speed Internet and Wi-Fi, poolside service, and suppers at Restaurante La Rosa. There is a sparkling, full-length pool that is meticulously cared for by the hotel staff. At night, the pool is lit so guests can enjoy an evening dip beneath the stars. If some serious relaxation is in order, the hotel has a spa that offers a variety of massages – from aromatherapy to deep tissue – that visitors are invited to indulge in.

Alajuela is Costa Rica’s second largest city in terms of inhabitants, but visitors will be pleasantly surprised to find that its pace is significantly calmer than that of San José. The city itself has historical roots which can be glimpsed in walks through parks and markets, where old cathedrals and buildings line nearby streets. The central park is lined with mango trees and is a popular spot for locals trying to escape the afternoon sun. The city’s central market is bustling and exciting, providing visitors with a chance to purchase handcrafted Costa Rican products. La Garita, a small suburb, houses Zoo Ave – a wonderful and expansive wildlife rehabilitation zoo that has an outstanding bird collection and many other animals. This area also acts as a great launching pad for visits to the Poás and Arenal volcanoes, Doka Coffee Plantation, La Paz Waterfall Gardens and many other Central Valley attractions.

The hotel’s staff is friendly, helpful, and able to assist in planning trips around the spectacular local countryside with or without a vehicle. We are able to provide the services in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish, to your convenience. Airport pickups can be arranged for a fee. Every year this hotel has been the recipient of the Prestigious Traveler choice award from Trip Advisor Central America.

Feedback from Travelers

nice, small hotel, with a few small restaurants within walking distance. the bunk bed, for the twin was uncomfortable because it was so low. it turned out not to be that convenient for transport. we had to go to another location for a day tour to Poas and Doka, and also to meet up with the transport for Tortuguero. the location is most appropriate for those renting their own vehicle.
