La Garita

Costa Rica



Hotel La Rosa de America is a proven income producer and is a fully turn-key operation. All you have to do is take over! This business offers great flexibility as it is designed to be run with or without direct owner involvement.

This gorgeous 19-room hotel is positioned on a large titled property in the upscale neighborhood of La Garita, 10 minutes from the International Airport. It is perfectly situated in the ideal climate of the Central Valley of Costa Rica, and its proximity to major roads and tourist attractions make this hotel a very popular one. It is in a quiet, safe neighbourhood, with easy access to banks, restaurants and other services.

In the past five years the business earnings have tripled and the occupancy of the hotel has doubled. You can enjoy a high return on investment with minimal effort. Five new deluxe cabins have just been built with beautiful teak finishing and furniture. There is still significant space to increase the occupancy rate of the hotel, and a major plus for this property is physical room for expansion projects, of which all municipal, architectural and construction permits have been received.
The hotel has undergone numerous upgrades and improvements both above and below ground. The hotel has new infrastructure upgrades (electrical, septic, room upgrades - to name just a few), stunning tropical landscaping, detailed marketing campaigns, website, and the business is highly organized and efficient. La Rosa has many repeat and referral guests each year.

All financial documents are maintained in excellent order and this turn-key business comes complete with two registered Costa Rican Corporations.
One of the jewels of this hotel is the landscaped grounds and pool area. You will not find a more lovely business property in all the Central Valley. When you enter through the gates, you will quickly see why guests repeatedly refer to La Rosa as an Oasis in the Central Valley.

Many other possibilities exist for the hotel depending on the personal interests and objectives of the buyer. These include Medical/Dental Tourism, Private Retreat, Yoga or Health Centre, Religious, Student, or other Special Interest Group base, Language School, Volunteer Groups etc. The location is ideal; close to the commercial and business infrastructure of the Central Valley, close proximity to the main highways leading north, west and south, and easy access to so many spectacular tourist attractions. This truly makes Hotel La Rosa a multi-use facility!

This hotel is an extremely successful investment and has proven itself during difficult economic times. Many growth options exist for the new owner. The business can be run remotely, using the online file and reservation system created specifically for the hotel. The owners are happy to stay on to help the new owners learn the business e and see this beautiful property.
