Springtime at La Rosa – Tweet!

Posted by in Hotel Blog | June 2, 2013

Looking around the gardens of our Alajuela Airport Hotel, we counted no less than 8 active birds nests!  There are Motmots, Yiguirros (clay robins or pigeons), Thrushes and more all looking to make homes.  The Motmots are the most interesting as they like to make nests in holes.  We found a motmot busily making a nest in the side of a large hole that we had dug to improve drainage and were about to fill in.  We had to stop!   Bird Nests at Hotel La RosaWe have nests in trees, nests on gutter downspouts, nests in our lemon tree outside our Restaurant, nests on our motion sensor floodlights at the front gate, nests around our pool, in our baby Eucalyptus tree and an ostentatious triple decker mansion being built in a Christmas palm near the main walk to Reception!!!  We know there are more but these are the most obvious!  Bird Nests at Hotel La Rosa  Bird Nest at La Rosa with Blue Eggs

Clearly the local avian population has been reading our online comments about being a Garden Oasis near the San Jose Costa Rica Airport!!!

So far only one nest has actually completed its function successfully with the hatching of three Yiguirros.  About three weeks later we watched as the mother taught them how to fly.  What a big first step to take after being cramped up in the nest for weeks!  Another has bluish eggs (not sure what type as the mother is very elusive)  and the other nests are either too high up or are still in the process of being built.

For us at Hotel La Rosa, this is a great sign as it shows that even with thousands of guests a year, we are able to maintain a balance with nature and in fact provide a suitable green area for them to breed and feel sufficiently secure.  We hope that many of these birds come back next year to continue the cycle!  In the mean time,La Rosa nests for the summer and fall months, we still have our giant bird bath – our swimming pool, which is a favorite of a surprisingly large number of our local birds who can frequently be seen splashing around on the steps or in some cases actually diving into the pool for a bath.

Come join us at La Rosa and you can too enjoy our property, pool, and gardens with all the flora and fauna it supports!

Delightful experience

Just in time for the 2013 High Season, all Hotel La Rosa de America SUPERIOR ROOMS now have air conditioning!

Posted by in Hotel Blog | November 1, 2012

Some guests have indicated a desire to have air conditioning at Hotel La Rosa. We have also found that typically it can get rather warm in the very busy months of February, March and April. Many of our guests visiting Costa Rica during these months are traveling from much colder northern climates and so we want their stays to be as comfortable as possible. Because La Rosa is a hotel located near the San Jose Costa Rica airport we enjoy the distinct advantage of a significantly cooler climate when compared with the coasts of Costa Rica. However as everyone has different preferences, options are good!

air conditioning in hotelWe have decided to provide all guests with the ability to choose! Our new Superior Rooms now come equipped with air conditioning – and a number of other service upgrades, whereas our Standard Rooms will remain with ceiling fans for those guests preferring the natural feel and sounds of the tropics at night. Both options are offered in conjunction with great rates and our famous service! Click this link to see the La Rosa de America Hotel Rates.

Superior Room upgrades include air conditioning, bar fridges, remodeled bathrooms, upgraded bedding and mattresses, new handmade hardwood beds, imported Egyptian cotton sheets, flat screen TV’s and new room furniture.

For more information on our Superior Rooms and what they offer please check our our ROOM DESCRIPTIONS.

Hotel La Rosa de America is a great option for guests looking for a boutique hotel close to the San Jose Costa Rica Airport.
