We are a unique 3 Star Costa Rica Airport Hotel with 19 rooms, located near the San Jose International Airport (SJO), but far enough away so you can enjoy a peaceful sleep and wake up to bird song in the beautiful gardens! Free breakfast.
Hotel La Rosa de America is a unique Costa Rica Airport Hotel. More like a Bed and Breakfast Inn, we are situated on a gorgeous property, conveniently located near the San Jose Airport in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. We offer accommodation in 17 spotlessly clean individual rooms and two family suites arranged in seven bungalows.
This room has one double bed, suitable for two people. Do ask if you need 2 beds!
We also have a sparkling pool for the private use of our guests. The rooms are located around a large carefully designed and tended tropical garden. Services include a served full tropical breakfast; free high- speed Internet, cable TV, spa services and lots of free advice! This Costa Rica Airport Hotel is ideally suited to guests arriving from a tiring flight and wanting time to adjust to the country. It is also perfect to spend 3-4 days unwinding and seeing the spectacular local countryside with or without a vehicle.
Our central location also allows our guests easy access to many Central Valley sites including Volcan Poas, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, the Butterfly Gardens, ZooAve (the Zoo) and the Doka and Cafe Britt Coffee Tours. White water rafting on the Paquare River, zip lining, Sarchi and even Tortuguero and Arenal are all possible as day trips from our Hotel. Of course if you are departing the following day, our hotel makes a great place to rest prior to leaving via the San Jose Airport. The towns of La Garita and Atenas enjoy some of the best weather of the Central Valley and have been listed by National Geographic to be in a region considered to have the best year round climate in the World!

Interaction with Guests
Our front desk staff are available for any questions, and we have a friendly night concierge who can assist you to your room if arriving late. Feel free to come and ask us questions!
We are located in the 'real' Costa Rica, away from the chain hotels and noise of the airport. We are in an area with nurseries and Costa Rican homes, and there are many local restaurant options for lunch.
There is a public bus stop just 2 minutes walk from us, that can take you into Alajuela Central.
We do not allow smoking inside the rooms. Pets are only allowed upon special request, to accommodated our guests with allergies. We do ask for quiet hours after 10pm.
La Rosa was a beautiful place to begin our trip in Costa Rica. We especially loved the extensive landscaping and hand-painted murals. The breakfast patio was equally enchanting. Definitely will return here.
Short Review: Stay here, it's a gem of a place.
Long Review: Over the past few years we've been all over Costa Rica and stayed in the country over 40 days with our young children. This hotel ranks as our top favorites. The grounds are AMAZINGLY well kept up. The staff is VERY kind and speaks English. The rooms are EXTREMELY well maintained. The price is very affordable. This hotel combines a "Costa Rican feel" with good proximity to the airport but no airport noise or traffic. Next time we come back to CR we will be staying here again before we leave for our flight back. We've stayed in over 20 different hotels & resorts all over the country and this hotel is one of our favorites, stay here and you'll love it.
Hotel La Rosa de America is a perfect place to stay when arriving into or leaving Costa Rica. It is close to the airport, the neighbourhood is cute and safe, and the grounds are gorgeous. For families with kids, this is a place where your kids can walk and run around in total security. The great landscaping, and the bird feeder, mean you even have a good selection of tropical birds to remind you that you're in a special country! The pool area is also great, although the water was a bit too cold when we were there.
We stayed in the family suite, which has a double bed, a single, and a bunk bed. Perfect for our family of 5. The room was clean, and we were very happy with our stay. The staff was friendly and always available.
I should note that Robert and his wife Alexandra were very responsive before our stay, giving advice and responding to our questions. They were extremely helpful, and this helped in our planning of our trip.
Next time we come to Costa Rica, we'll stay here for our first and last nights, and for maybe even a bit more actually.
The only suggestion I could offer would be to add a lamp or two to the room, or improve the lighting somehow. It seemed a bit dark.
We would definitely recommend this place to others.
We loved Hotel La Rosa de America! It was exactly what we were looking for after half a day of flying and traveling. It is a very short drive from the airport and outside of the hustle and bustle so pretty quiet. The landscape is absolutely beautiful and our room was very comfortable. The restaurant was great for dinner and the complimentary breakfast was delicious! We will definitely be back! Thank you & pura vida!
