“A Beautiful B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

Darrylle has an absolutely beautiful home and invites you to consider it your home during your stay. Breakfast was delicious and more than ample. Morning conversations were interesting, enlightening, and helpful. Darrylle did everything possible to ensure that we enjoyed our stay in San Jose and were able to see and do everything that we wanted to. Not only would we recommend this B&B, but we have already and would do so again to anyone going to San Jose. We would love to return and spend more time with Darrylle in his home. We travel a lot and it is hands down the best B&B we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Rooms are equally beautiful and amazing.

The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The location was quite convenient to downtown and the attractions. Darrylle was a great host, serving beer and cookies upon arrival and providing a lift to the airport early in the morning.

We stayed at Casa Abierta a couple of times during our stay in San Jose in May 2012. Darrylle´s home is gorgeous: it is beautifully decorated, spacious, full of interesting art and thoroughly comfortable. The patio attached to the dining room is a little paradise. Darrylle was the perfect host. He was accommodating, full of useful information, very friendly and extremely generous. He even drove us to the bus terminal on our last day in San Jose. The breakfast is exceptional and includes many typical Tico dishes. We now feel like we have a friend in San Jose, and will return there if we ever have the opportunity.

Room Tip: Both rooms are terrific.

My husband and I travel extensively, prefer B&Bs and have had many wonderful experiences. This has been the best ever. Darrylle is the consummate host: gracious, generous, interesting, helpful. His home is beautifully appointed--the bedding is scrumptious. Breakfast at Casa Abierta is memorable. Safe neighborhood for walking to nearby terrific restaurant for dinner. We recommend Casa Abierta wholeheartedly.

Stayed for one night at Casa Abierta B & B before flying out the following morning. A perfect room with shared bathroom in a very pleasant and comfortable home. Wish I could have stayed for longer. Darrylle was the perfect host serving coffee/tea and cookies(!) at arrival. He is a very warm and friendly person with many interesting experiences and projects. I have been lucky to meet him and wish him all the best re. his future endeavors. Got a lovely breakfast before my flight-even as early as 4 a.m. You will not regret staying here-an oasis in San Jose!

It doesn't matter if you stay for one night,a week or the weekend... Darryle makes you feel like you are in your own home. In "Casa Abierta" you'll find a smile, new friends, kindness, a nice chat every morning with your breakfast and of course i nice place to stay.

If you are looking for places to visit while your staying in Costa Rica they provide you with a map, directions and pick you up in the airport.
In my own experience i'm glad to say that i love my first visit to Costa Rica, love Casa Abierta and definitely the next time i'll stay there again.

My husband and I spent our first night of our honeymoon at Casa Abierta. Darryle greeted us with a smile at the airport and took such great care of us from that moment on. I think with Darryle it might be impossible not to love this guy. He is so open and friendly that I literally sat and talked with him for hours, enjoying his lovely cookies and entertaining stories. He made us feel right at home and I could have spent much more time than the 1 night we had. His home was gorgeous inside and out. Very tastefully decorated with a lot of beautiful flowers, and locally made furnishings throughout. The breakfast was so awesome and delicious I'm still thinking about it. Anything we asked for he was able to get for us, to make our time with him as relaxing and stress-free as possible. We are sooooo looking forward to our next stay at Casa Abierta and cannot recommend this BnB enough!

Breakfast on fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads and jams, organic cereals, yogurts and rich Costa Rican coffee, share some stories, explore ideas on how we can develop a better world and enjoy an intimate inside experience of what life can be like in Costa Rica.
