I love this little hotel and we stay there everything we have to travel to San Jose which is not our favorite place...The Cristina hotel is our little refuge. Thanks to Elizabeth, Sergio and Roberta who are always welcoming and friendly. The whole staff is great and we enjoy being there every time. The buffet breakfast is great, varied and... More

I stayed here for four days while visiting Costa Rica. The idea of an apartotel seemed so practical to me, because we were traveling with our children and didn't want to eat out every single meal. I can't complain about the price, which includes a free poolside breakfast of the traditional gallo pinto, eggs (cooked to order), fried plantains and... More

Stayed here while adopting our three girls. Super staff and always helpful. Especially enjoyed the breakfasts and cleaning staff. Mayra was so sweet, even letting our three year old "help her" make the beds.

In light of my negative experience last week at another local suite-type property (see my previous review), I decided it was time to give some love to The Cristina. I travel to San Jose once or twice each year, and typically stay here. I've never had a bad stay, although I've learned that afternoon naps are difficult in rooms overlooking... More

We travel to San Jose often and usually stay in Escazu. This time through we wanted a change and searched for an independent hotel somewhere near La Sabana Park. Apartotel Suites Cristina fit the bill. We booked the Superior Suite 2 bedroom for our family of 5 (incl. 3 children ages 9, 4 & 10 months) and Executive Suite 1... More

Have stayed at Cristina's five times now, and always wonderful and reasonable, even for the Executive Suite which I always reserve. The breakfast buffet around the pool is a great way to start the day. Cristina's is located within walking distance to numerous restaurants (even fast food if that is your thing), the beautiful park, and the grocery store.

Overall it was very enjoyable for our family vacation. The staffs were nice and helpful. The hotel is pretty clean and rooms are good. The food in the hotel's restaurant was very good. The staffs speak English and they provided good guidance to make our trip effective and very useful. Thanks.

We stayed a Cristina's 5 times and I go back every time when in San Jose. The service is exceptional. Friendly, accommodating, professional. The units are clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar is always well done. Overall I look forward to be there again. My home from home.
