Ruta Verde House, Alajuela
15 minutes to the airport. A slice of paradise.
A truly beautiful bed and breakfast. Our room was very spacious with the most comfortable bed we had in over 3 weeks in Costa Rica. Fantastic facility. Wonderful little porch and peaceful patio. We watched a smoking volcano at sunup our last morning which was spectacular. Our host William was super special. He drove us to the local town and showed us the highlights to visit that day. William and his wife prepared our dinner one night full of local flavors and taste. Don't miss that treat! While sharing an after dinner beer William sat with us and gave us an "insiders view" of Costa Rica. He loves his country and his career in tourism. Perhaps our most accommodating and as gracious a host as we have ever enjoyed at a B&B. Don't miss this jewel when in the area. Can't wait to return ASAP.

Great stay.
We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment and we loved it. It's very clean, spacious, has a large bathroom with a huge shower, 2 balconies, one overlooking the coffee plants. William is a great host! He helps you pretty much with everything you need. You can tell that William has a passion for cooking. The first night we ordered his home made dinner and it was fantastic. We had risotto, a chicken dish and a salad with strawberries and caramelized almonds. We enjoyed the option to order food from him since I didn't want to drive in the dark to find a restaurant. The place is secure and gated. I would highly recommend it!

Great place
Only a one night stay, but we would definitely stay again. Rooms were beautiful and had nice high end touches. William is very informative and if you need a tour he is one to ask. Also, he will help you order food if you want. His dad was a real pleasure to talk to. Highly recommend.

What a lovely place
Very hospitable guest house. We were greeted upon arrival and shown to our room which exceeded our expectations. The view from the veranda was breathtaking. Rita Verde House is located in the rolling hills of Alejuela with San José in a distant valley. It's location was very convenient for the airport, just 20 minutes away but completely out of site. Good delivery is available, but I would take the hosts' recommendation for Pandora's Kitchen a five minute walk down the hill. The shuttle for the airport was right on time and the trip was fairly traffic free. I'll definitely be back.

Incredibly Inviting Home
William was a fantastic host even though we showed up 2 hours early, unannounced, he was still incredibly accommodating. He took us to the coffee plantation (an informative tour) and helped us feel at home in his lovely place. The view was amazing, weather was great so we had the windows open and fan going. No AC in the room but it was perfect weather during our stay so didn't need it. The bathroom was great with a large shower, double sinks and private toilet. Balcony outside overlooks a coffee field and was very peaceful. The bed (king size) was SO comfortable. William had a coffee and tea setup, which was much appreciated, and a refrigerator to keep water cold. We were tired at the end of the day and William helped us order a pizza for delivery. I would definitely stay here again. Recommend you contact William in advance as he has a great knowledge of the area and is a professional guide and would be happy to help arrange activities for the area. Place is a quick 15-20 minute ride to SJO. Thank you William!
