“Everything we hoped for and more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

We selected Bella Rita strictly off of Trip Advisor reviews and boy did it pay off! They were so friendly and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast was great and they recommended great places for other meals. The cab ride was only $3-$4 to get to town and meals were very reasonably priced. This was very conveniently located and is perfect for a traveler that wants to stay for a night right near the San Jose Airport. Rita and Steve were great and made you feel right at home. We will definitely be staying with them again!

Room Tip: Pretty sure that all of the rooms here were pretty much created equal.

This is a beautiful homey place to start your vacation. All the rooms are excellent. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. Rita is a wonderful person and she was most helpful with losts of ideas on places to stay and things to do. We would stay there again. We hope to go again next year.

Room Tip: There is not a bad room. We saw them all and stayed in two. We were very happy with the whole place.

Thank you Steve and Rita, for a wonderful last night in Costa Rica! We truly enjoyed your company and hospitality and felt like we were home away from home. You certainly deserve all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. We are looking forward to returning to CR in a few years when the kids are bigger and we will surely stay with you again.

This review is long overdue - sorry Rita and Steve. We highly recommend Casa Bella Rita as it is truly a gem. We stayed 2 nights in July and were welcomed as if we were old friends. We were in the canopy room which was very comfortable and wonderfully furnished. I loved the living area with the beautiful view of the valley as well as the patio and pool area which were so unusual and beautiful as well. Steve was ready to prepare what ever we wanted each morning for breakfast and Rita had coffee ready and waiting. They gave us a wonderful recommendation for dinner and also arranged for a driver to take us to the Toucan Rescue Ranch. This was one of the highlights of our trip. I even got to hold a baby sloth! Thanks Rita and Steve for a wonderful stay and making us feel so welcome.

Room Tip: I would imagine that all of the rooms here would be excellent!

We stayed here for the last two nights of a ten-night trip in Costa Rica. It had been a great trip, but very on-the-go, and we were pretty travel-weary. Casa Bella Rita ended up being exactly what we needed -- a beautiful B&B with a king bed and air-conditioned room. The living room was also really nice, with a gorgeous view.

Rita and Steve were amazing hosts, going well above and beyond what I'd typically expect of folks running a B&B. Not only did they set up a tour for us, furnish us with recommendations for places in the area, etc, etc, but they also went out of their way multiple times to help us out when we ran into some logistical hurdles (entirely of our own making) at the end of our stay.

I'll concur with the rest of the reviewers here -- both the B&B and Rita and Steve make you feel like you're staying with family.

We stayed at Casa Bella Rita on June 27, 2012 before we took another flight to our resort. I honestly didn't want to leave. Beautiful place to stay, Rita and Steve are wonderful! They recommended a great local place to eat in which we walked to after our long flight. They generously upgraded us to the Mariposa room and it was amazing and an amazing view right outside the room. It overlooks a canyon and it truly is breathtaking, we spent most of our time relaxing on the hammocks. The breakfast was delicious and fresh and they accomodated my fiance who tends to overindulge on vacations :) I would love the chance to go back and stay, it exceeded our expectations and better than anything we could have hoped for! There really isn't anything that I would have them change.

Beautiful place to stay, very close to the airport. We stayed here the first and last night of our holiday and it was a great choice logistically speaking. Of course, Rita and Steve did not let us down in any other way either! They were great hosts who helped us not only explore the local area, but also make reservations and plan the rest of our Costa Rican holiday. Their B&B is absolutely gorgeous with an incredible view! Steve makes a mean breakfast that is not to be missed- huevos rancheros... If and when we head back to CR, we would definitely stay here again. Hartelijk bedankt from the Netherlands, Rita and Steve!

P.S. Mariposa room is a gorgeous choice complete with a wall of tropical trees/plants separating the shower and main bedroom. Beautiful!
