Highly recommend for a B&B experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 15, 2024
Just returned from 2 nights at Ruta Verde B&B and would go back without hesitation. Our family of 4 had a great time (2 adults & 2 kids under 10 years). This is a spot-on place if you're looking for a B&B experience, and to serve as a base for daily excursions.

William messaged before arrival to ask if we'd like dinner & am so glad we said yes. As other reviewers mentioned, he's a fantastic cook. We enjoyed dinner & 2 breakfasts with him - highly recommend. We stayed in the Tambor Coffee Field apartment. The accommodations were spacious & clean, included a kitchen & 2 patios, comfortable beds, things like A/C, hot water in shower, and throwing TP in the toilet (!) (none of these the norm in CR), and maybe most of all the peaceful scenery -- it overlooks fields on either side and in the distance are various mountains and city lights. There's also an outdoor pool, and area with 2 hammocks. There's some road traffic nearby but it was the quietest place we slept over 2 weeks in CR.

We had a day to play with and William helpfully rented us a vehicle in a pinch and was available to offer suggestions and answer questions we had about ideas of what to do, and would make sense with the kids. We appreciated his willingness to get the vehicle ready without advanced notice -- it really made the day for our family to have the flexibility to wander about between sites.

Thank you William & crew for the memorable time!

The room was ok, but we arrived with a baby, which the owner didn't seem to like (although we had booked a room with a baby). We were treated quite unfriendly and didnt feel welcome. Communication in general was bad. We cannot recommend this family-unfriendly place.

The views from our private balcony of the mountains, city, and lush fields (with a cute table/2 chairs outside on the balcony beside pretty flowers) provided a relaxing spot after many days of traveling through Costa Rica. William (owner) prepared us an amazing dinner the day we arrived and a traditional Costa Rican breakfast the next morning (our room included a basic breakfast of fruit in yogurt with topped granola, and that looked delicious and freshly made, but we upgraded to this traditional breakfast, and it was incredibly delicious… the best traditional breakfast we ate throughout our entire 10 day trip!) William was very attentive to preparing my meals around multiple food allergies which was greatly appreciated!! Gated hotel with secure parking, a/c, fan, large tv, big shower/double sink-variety, mini refg-sink-microwave-tea/coffee maker with some basic staples like coffee-salt-utensils-wine glasses, etc., and a super comfy king sized bed! Zero complaints about this choice to stay, and the bonus is the 20 minute distance to the airport!! We will definitely return on our next trip to Costa Rica❣️

Room tip: It will take longer than 20 minutes to get the airport if you need to drive there during rush hour

We stayed for only one night, however it was a truly beautiful place with William, the host, being very kind and flexible. We arrived quite late and he kept the kitchen open for us as we were very hungry and tired from our flight. He made an excellent dinner and we went to our room. The room is so pretty and very comfortable. The bed was excellent and we slept well. William is also an artist, and we saw many of his paintings in our room and in the restaurant area.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room tip: Parking is avaliable.

We had last minute changes to our travel plans and needed a place to stay the first night we arrived in Costa Rica. William not only picked us up at the airport after 8:00pm, but he also kindly filled our request to make us dinner despite our late arrival. Between that first night and the delicious meal the following morning, we felt so warmly welcomed and so comfortable at Ruta Verde. We slept so well and woke up feeling like we'd truly arrived. Such a great feeling and far better than anything we would have experienced had we stayed at a hotel right by the airport. Even if you just need a place for one night, Ruta Verde is the perfect spot-- 20 minutes from the airport for ease of transit, but tucked away in a beautiful setting with William and his family as gracious hosts.

We stayed three separate nights at the Ruta Verde House as we used it as sort of a base for other trips during our recent Costa Rica trip. William, the owner, was friendly and available to answer many questions via Whatspp prior to our stay. The "hotel" is a former large home located in a residential area. Our room and our friends room were on the top floor (stairs involved), were very generous in size with beautiful furnishings ,including a ceiling fan, air conditioning (which we didn't need), TV (which we didn't use), good internet and a mini-kitchen with microwave, small refrigerator, coffee pot and a small sink. We each had a patio area with gorgeous views. We opted to have a full breakfast. As my friend handled the arrangements I believe this was probably an extra cost beyond the basic breakfast of fruit and yogurt. We did not plan an early breakfast or departure on two of our days which suited William's schedule as he lives off site and so returns each morning to cook. On the one morning we had an early day we arranged for him to open the gate remotely for our pick-up. There is adequate, gated parking if you have your own car. William sent us the menu before our arrival so we picked out our meal choices and William prepared them beautifully. William picked us up at the airport and provided our transport back to the airport (or rather the Covid-19 testing lab near the airport) for a reasonable fee. We arranged our transport with William ahead of time. We were very relaxed knowing we had reliable transport to and from the airport. We will definitely use Ruta Verde House as a place to stay close to the airport during our next visit to Costa Rica.
There is some noise from early morning traffic on the near by road. When we used the celing fan and closed the sliding glass door to our room we didn't really notice the noise.
