Casa Bella Rita was our last stop in Costa Rica, after a month of travel. We were not looking forward to leaving the beach, or to being close to a city, so this wonderful B&B was an unexpected treat. Upon entering, we immediately felt as though we were family. Gracious hosts, Rita and Steve, both Americans, were ready and waiting... More

Rita and Steve will welcome you with open arms. Feel at home in super comfortable beds, spacious rooms, ac, fans and wifi. Located a short distance from the best shopping area, we stayed for 3 nights to finish up our residency papers and buy a few things for our business. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them and plan to... More

I stayed with Steve and Rita for two nights at the beginning of my trip by myself and one night at the end of my trip with a friend. I felt like family after the first day and I really mean that. Steve picked me up from the airport and was such a gentleman. Rita and their puppies greeted me... More

I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so I didn't know what to expect. When our shuttle driver dropped us off along a non-descript back alley, my first thought was "Oh Oh". When the blue gate opened and Rita smiled and greeted us, my fears flew out the window. On the other side of the gate is... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Bella Rita on the first night of our trip. We decided to rent our car at the airport. Rita had sent us written directions via email from the airport to her lovely home. We also plugged in longitude and latitude in our rented gps. One part of her directions said to watch carefully...

Nice views, but Rita's customer service is completely over-rated on tripadvisor (or maybe we just had a bad experience). I tried to leave a review earlier and it never showed up (which is why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 2). The website says they will bring you to the B&B from the airport, but when we asked...

My husband and I stayed at Casa Bella Rita the first and last night of our honeymoon trip. Rita is a great hostess, and our room was great. Maybe a little warmer than we would have liked, but it seems the A/C was just broken that day.

We were traveling with 5 adults and two 15 month-old twin girls. Steve and Rita went out of their way to accommodate the children and make us feel at home. They arranged to have pack-and-play portable cribs available for our 2 week trip around the country. They helped with the rental cars which were delivered to the B&B and picked... More

We were a family group of six, and we used Casa Bella Rita as a gathering point between many destinations in Costa Rica. Significant planning had gone into our adventure and Rita had been most helpful in putting it all together. The disaster struck. The volcano blasted the area with ash and the airport was closed for a day, just... More

My husband and I finished off a two week trip to Costa Rica at the Casa Bella Rita and it was the perfect ending. We were the only guests so we invited Rita to join us for wine and conversation. The bedroom was pure luxury and an affordable price. The view was beautiful and very relaxing.
