We stayed at Hotel La Rosa de America on our last night of a week long vacation because we had a 6:45 am flight out of SJO. The hotel is close to the airport (10-12 min ride at 4:30am), but far enough away so that we weren't right in the middle of a busy area. Finding the hotel was easy enough - I just followed the directions from their website. (we arrived from the Manuel Antonio area). There were quite a few restaurants very close to the hotel and the hotel provided a book with menus and suggestions, as well as a map, so we were able to choose where we were going to eat and how to get there before we left the hotel. We had a car, so we were able to drive ourselves, but taxis were just a phone call away.
The pool area was nice, as were the hotel grounds - they were beautifully landscaped and spacious. I didn't use it, so I can't comment on the speed, but it appeared there was a computer with internet for public use. There were also spa services available, but unfortunately we didn't have time for this.
Since we had to leave the hotel before breakfast time, Robert packed each of us a nice breakfast the night before and left it on our door - orange juice, a banana, and a good sized piece of banana bread - yum yum! The night before, he drew me a very detailed map to the airport and to our car rental return location - we had NO problems in the morning driving to the airport and I owe it to the extraordinary detail Robert took in making the map for me - thank you! (It's not a complicated drive to the airport... I just appreciate really good directions complete with landmarks and mileage - it certainly makes driving half awake at 4:30 am much easier!!)
This was my first trip to Costa Rica, but certainly not my last. I plan on returning to this hotel during my next trip. Thank you, Robert, for making our last night in Costa Rica a good one! Pura Vida!
