The breakfast was the best part. Covered secured parking. I don't think we got the unit we paid for. It was small, dated and dank. We should have just booked the cheapest one instead because that is what we got. It certainly looked nothing like the pictures of the room we reserved. We only spent one night, it was clean... More

We stayed in Cristina for about 20 days in January to escape winter. I cannot praise enough THIEIR courtesy, service and hospitality. They promptly picked us up from the airport. The location is excellent for everything. The main road is 2 min walk where you can get taxis buses and even train to go around . The beautiful La Sabana... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night while taking care of some business in San José. The rooms were nice and clean and I had an excellent speedy service with the front desk. I got a little discount by paying cash. We had two rooms as we were a party of 6 so we ordered food in after asking... More

My family and I went for a week expecting what I had seen on the internet. I was promised free shuttle transportation, which I confirmed with the hotel days before my visit. However once I arrived to the airport there was no shuttle and I waited a long period of time calling the hotel only for them to tell me... More

I stayed at the Cristina for a week having oral surgery at Dr. Anglada's clinic in La Sabana. The hotel is very convenient and affordable. The accommodations are good and the hotel is well kept. Fortunately, I don't sleep in as it is quite noisy in the morning during breakfast. My room was right next to the pool and breakfast... More

I don't like to knock a hotel, especially in contradiction to so many good reviews, but it was those reviews that led me to staying there -- I just don't see what many others saw. Right from the start, there were red flags; I reserved on their website and was quoted a price. When I spoke to a representative, I... More

We travelled here as a cricket team and we are very happy with the hotel! Pool was freezing though, so prepare yourself! The rooms are very nice, staff is helpful and friendly! Breakfast was also delicious and loved the idea of an omelette station. The only problem we did encounter is that yoj can hear EVERYTHING around the hotel. The... More

Although we liked the hotel, the pool area, and particularly the poolside breakfast buffet, the location was less than desirable for us. We hadn't visited Latin America previously and were not comfortable walking in the area, so we ate at the excellent onsite restaurant (Los Olivos?) and took a taxi to the downtown area. We stayed here 2 nights as... More

I stayed at the Cristina for the first time for a week while I was in San Jose for dental treatment and enjoyed everything about it. The location near the park and restaurants was excellent (the food and service at the attached restaurant was fabulous--Stephan was our 'go-to' waiter for every meal). The room was nothing extravagant but was clean,... More
