Rita Bennett worked at the front desk of this hotel.
The hotel is a large, colorful resort with a pale gold and white lower level set on the beach.
Rita notices that her co-worker, Yelina, is very upset about something, and tries to comfort her. Yelina reveals that she is worried about her fiance. He had left Cuba to immigrate illegally with the help of a human smuggler, but he never arrived in Miami. Rita asks Dexter to look into the problem, using his police connections. Yelina's fiance’s body later washes up on the beach. Dexter tracks down the smuggler, and kills him and his wife.
While Rita is at work, two officers from the Miami-Dade Sheriff’s Department appear at the front desk. They inform Rita that Paul Bennett has been released from Baptist Memorial Hospital and filed an assault charge against her.
Rita, feeling the effects of morning sickness, is freshening up in the restroom at work. While there, she has a tense phone conversation with Astor. When Rita returns to the front desk, she lashes out at the rude wife of a newlywed couple staying at the hotel. This results in Rita being fired on the spot.
