Casa Cristal is a beautiful hotel in Escazu. It only has about 10 rooms like a bed and breakfast but the layout gives the feeling of a spa. I think all but 1 of the rooms have private balconies with gorgeous views. There are many areas to relax, read, talk enjoy the views etc. We personally loved the gardens and the patio with the koi pond. Breakfast is included and the owner, Zeida is a wonderful cook. We also ate dinner there most nights and again Zeida created the most wonderful dishes. The pool is nice but I don't think it is heated. It felt rather cool and the air temps were only in the 70's so we didn't use it. I would definatley recommend you have Victor (Zeida's husband) pick you up from the airport as Escazu is difficult to navigate even for taxis. In fact, Victor showed a taxi the way to another hotel on our way to Casa Cristal. Just goes to show how wonderful Victor and Zeida are...they want to make sure EVERYONE has a great stay in Costa Rica. Although the hotel is isolated, my husband and I did enjoy walking into town. It really is not that far but it is confusing. We used our phone GPS and our memories of landmarks to find our way.
Zeida was born in the USA and raised in Miami. Victor is from Cuba and lived in Miami. Needless to say, their english is very good.
