Nice, attractive hotel near SJO airport
We travel to Costa Rica at least once a year, and always use Rosa de America as our airport hotel. Staff is very friendly, helpful and efficient. Rooms are somewhat small, but clean and bed reasonably comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and very well manicured, with amazing plants and flowers wherever you look.

We always stay here the first night when we fly into San Jose. Beautiful little spot with lush vegetation, plenty of birds, nice pool and good food.

Beautiful hotel and fun day in downtown Alajuera!
The hotel gates open and a gorgeous garden paradise awaits! We really enjoyed our (too short) stay at this hotel. The staff was fantastic. Dinner was local and delicious; they served us poolside so that our kids could swim, and a gorgeous white owl landed on the tree in front of us! We completely enjoyed going into Alajuera to shop and eat. Take the local bus - it's cheap and safe - into the city center. Enjoy coffee and pastel de manzana at El Tostador, and definitely enjoy the Sopa Marisco for lunch at the Cevichera stall in the indoor city municipal market. Book several nights at this hotel; you'll be sorry (like us) if you limit your time here!

What a great find!!!!
Was our stopover stay when arriving in San Jose. So glad we booked it because our flight was 3 hours late and driving would’ve been very difficult at night. The hotel and grounds are spectacular. The staff is incredibly nice and welcoming. Restaurant had authentic Costa Rican food which was fantastic and waiter was very personable. Highly recommend for anyone needing a place close to San Jose airport.

Sleeping easy
Clean, comfortable and safe....great linens and pillows and a true relief after we left our other hotel at 11pm because it was just the opposite

Great place to stay in San Jose Area
Stayed here for a night before needing to go to the airport. The property was very pretty and well maintained. The room was clean and the towels were nice and soft. The restaurant on the property is only open for hotel guests and was pretty good and breakfast buffet was more than adequate. The hotel was a quick 15 minute ride to the airport and only ₡5,300 uber ride. The hotel offers a shuttle to the airport for ₡12,000. The property was secure and has a gate to enter/exit the property. I would definitely stay there again if I found myself in the San Jose area.

Simple and clean
Just stayed one night after flying into San Jose. Simple room, clean, pretty grounds, good breakfast, restaurants in walking distance. Nothing special.

The staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Beautifully decorated and landscaped. Good breakfast on patio in am which was included. Would stay there again.

Mixed Bag
This one was a mixed bag. The outside areas of the hotel were very cute and well maintained. The staff that we dealt with was all very helpful and pleasant (then again-who isn't in C.R?) Room came with breakfast with both cold items already out and they cooked eggs/rice and beans for you when you sat down. We arrived after dark and the area seemed fine. Hotel has a gate across parking area which is locked overnight for added security. The room itself was basic. We stayed in a family suite and it had bunk beds but the tops of the beds were so high off the ground I didn't allow either of my kids to sleep up there. The cleanliness of the room could have been significantly better. One of the sheets was stained with brown marks (hmmm?) and the tiles on the floor had several spots on that that could have just been washed off. It could have just been the suite we got that wasn't the best based on other reviews. Not sure if they just don't get that much use.
