For our honeymoon we decided to backpack through Costa Rica. We flew into San Jose, and after reading reviews we decided upon Casa Isabella as our start point. We came in earlier than check-in so our room wasn't ready but Roberto, the owner, let us relax in the lobby until the time of our check-in. Roberto was the most accommodating...

Our 2 week stay at the Casa Isabella in Escazu, CR in March 2015, was wonderful. We stayed in room 2, the junior suite. Everything was nice and clean and the room had ample space. The bed was super comfy and the shower was awesome too but one of the best parts of any B&B or hotel is the staff...

Casa Isabella is a beautiful house in one of the nice neighborhood close to San Jose. We stayed in the junior suite and it was very comfortable. Our daughter stayed in the room next door and that room was very nice too. Breakfast was excellent and the manager friendly and helpful. The only issue is finding the place! Why don't...

Thanks for your nice review! Being in a residential area, we are aware there are a few landmarks that can be used to find us, but we do provide assistance: for every reservation in our welcoming email we suggest taking our transportation to the hotel or we ask if there is any help needed. We are also in google maps,...

It was a pleasure to stay here. I spent 4 days at Casa Isabella at the start of my visit and one more at the end of my 2 weeks stay in Costa Rica. Only a 20 minute ride to the airport, it is perfectly located for day trips to the mountains or beaches, and a short cab ride to...

First of all let me just say that my room was huge, and beautiful, and had no creepy crawlers which is a big deal considering I had been sharing my former bed and breakfast in another part of Costa Rica with a gecko and a monstrous mosquito. I spent most of my vacation in the Carribean part of CR and...

This a a charming Bed and Breakfast place. It deserves it rating. This is a quaint little place in Escazu. The place is quiet and relaxing, and with just 5 rooms, you would feel like you have the place to yourself. I stayed in room 5 and it is a big room with two Beds. Roberto was very accommodating. I...

This customer is right, he suffered the consequences of a shortage of labor during 3 days, that was unexpected and created a challenge in our operation.

Excellent place to stay (20 mins drive from airport). Roberto is extremely friendly and helpful. We booked our car rental through him and it went very very well.
