Reviews for Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn
I knew that after spending many hours on a plane, my family would not want to travel any further once we landed in San Jose. That meant I needed to find someplace to stay close to the airport. I chose Finca Rosa Blanca because of its environmentally friendly policies and on-site coffee plantation. My family, including a 4 year old, stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in March 2017. We arranged transport from the airport through the hotel for a reasonable additional cost. We were picked up by a friendly driver who pointed out interesting geographical features and other points of interest as he drove. Once at the hotel, we were greeted warmly and directed to the hotel restaurant where we had lunch and coffee. (The service here is so excellent that they started the complimentary afternoon coffee early for us since our room was not ready). Our room was exactly what I hoped for after looking through pictures online. It was spacious and airy with lots of interesting architectural and decorating details. My son enjoyed taking pictures of the various animal statues and paintings. I particularly liked spending time on the rear patio reading with my camera at the ready to photograph birds. Given that we traveled in high season, I'm sure the hotel must have been fully booked, but we often felt that we were the only ones there. Every time we used the pool or hot tub, we didn't see another soul. On our second day, we took the coffee plantation tour. It was really neat to see how coffee is grow and the plantation land is just beautiful, with lots of opportunities to spot birds. My son enjoyed watching the two dogs who spend their days at the hotel traipse up and down the hills. Who knew that a tiny dog could scale a 70 degree incline? The coffee tour ends with a tasting of the hotel's excellent coffee. While at Finca Rosa Blanca, we ate all of our meals at the hotel restaurant. The food was invariably delicious and the views were amazing. Be warned that there are lots of mosquitoes, so use bug spray and consider long pants for dinner. My legs were basically one big bug bite by the time we left. I don't think that this hotel attracts a lot of families, but there's no reason that children wouldn't enjoy it. The pool and walking paths were a hit with my son and he was treated very well by everyone on staff. If we return to Costa Rica, we would definitely make Finca Rosa Blanca our first stop again.

This place is truly fantastic. It is a Hotel, restaurant, and working coffee farm! Very cool rooms each with their own style from what I can tell. The entire place has wonderful views of the Central Valley. The restaurant is fantastic and has a wonderful menu. Really a fantastic place.
We had a short two nights stop over after arriving in Costa Rica. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens next to the owners coffee plantation. Our rooms were in a lovely building and the common area contained a mixture of paintings and pieces of sculpture. The rooms were unique and both of ours had balconies with super views across the gardens and valley. The food was very good and the staff attentive and friendly. It was a shame that as we were there in the wet season that the heavy afternoon rain limited our exploration of all the facilities however the mornings were glorious and the tour of the organic coffee plantation was very good with a great enthusiastic young tour guide.We would definitely stay here again.

Ideally located about 30minutes from San Jose airport. All the staff were fantastic from check-in to the bar and restaurant and very friendly and helpful. We knew it was the rainy (read quiet) season and there was only 1 other couple staying (we were there for 2no nights). Food was tasty. Coffee tour was very interesting and the guide was very informative and knowledgeable. The tour is quiet strenuous as rough trails and up hill but definately worth it if you are able. Perfect start to our first visit to Costa Rica.

I had high expectations after visiting another property in their hotel portfolio. It may have been the time of year I visited (rainy season), but the room was cold, damp, and had an ant problem. My son's bed was covered with them as they invaded through a window that couldn't be properly closed. Location is great for an escape from the city while you're surprisingly close to the airport. The staff are phenomenal, but I think understaffed. I could see this being a really great romantic getaway with the right temperature and some property upgrades, however I was disappointed. (I was unable to go to the coffee tour - they are very strict on the times and it didn't fit within the travel schedule. I'm not chastising them for that, just saying that if it's an amazing experience, I am not taking that into consideration. Merely the room.)
