This hotel would have been nice, however it's terribly overpriced. It's several blocks away from Parque Central and many of the tourist destinations in Antigua, and also has no restaurant on premises. The rooms are impractically large, which is probably where the high price comes in, and while the gardens are beautiful, there's far more beautiful and interesting things to do in Antigua than relax in the hotel's garden.
But most importantly, the plumbing is spotty. My reservation for a standard room was outfitted with a great shower, but no hot water. After being urged not to leave immediately, I was upgraded to the suite: an even larger room, with not only a shower (that was broken) but a hot tub (which also didn't have hot water).
If you're going to Antigua to relax at a hotel, just check the water first before you hand over any money to Casa Santa Rosa. If you're going to Antigua to see the sights and enjoy the wonderful food and nightlife, spend your money (and far less of it) on a place closer to Parque Central, because you probably won't be spending much time in the room anyway.
