We arrived at 6am straight from the night bus from panama city with no reservations. Rita showed us in and told us to get some sleep and we will talk later. The israeli breakfast was amazing and very filling and the staff was extremely pleasant! The following day Moti took us to boquete where we saw how to make sugar... More

We were very welcomed. We came from Costa Rica and Moti sent us a taxi to the border which took us to david. We had a wonderful time and wish we could repeat it. We have seen in 4 days, scenes which we couldn't have seen in a longer period, the room and accommodation meals and so on were extraordinary... More

Moty and Rita made us feel at home. Their facilities have a wide range of offering. Rita's cuisine is the best we could ask, and Moty's trips and tours are just what we wanted - an inside look on things rather than a touristic company excursion. We came to them with 2 recommendations from different people, and we sure going... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a private double room. The room was clean, comfy bed and decent bathroom with hot water. Moty and Rita were great hosts and the food here was the best I've ever had at a hostel (out of South and Central America and Asia). They also offer dinner as an optional extra which is fantastic...

If you prefer an experience that's not "touristy", delicious homemade meals, and expert guidance throughout the area, Kibutz de Rita is the place for you. I'm SO happy we changed our reservation from the "best" hotel in David to the Kibutz de Rita. What we received was a real local experience, great international conversations, and a simple but very comfortable... More

We just spent 3 nights at Kibutz de Rita and loved it! The atmosphere is very comfortable - just like being at home. Rita and her family/staff went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed ourselves. The dinners (that were an additional cost) were divine, and well worth the $ ($15/person). Rita prepared traditional Panamanian dishes - the best... More

Stayed 2 nights in Kibbutz de Rita and it was great. Moti was away but rosy (rita's sister) made our stay wonderful. One of the days we went to the chiriqui trip and because we had to leave early, she prepared us sandwiches for the way! Rooms are clean and they really make you feel at home.

My husband and I just came back from a 7 night stay at the Kibbutz de Rita We loved the hospitality from Moty and Rita, they made us feel at home with them.
