I've been researching Prisma Dental in Costa Rica for years. Finally made the trip. Stayed at the Cristina on their reccomendation.
I travel for a living and stay in hotel 3-4 nights a week mostly in the United States.
I picked the cheapest room at the Cristina as I'm traveling by myself and don't need much. The basic rooms are akin to a basic La Quinta in the United States. Not overly nice, but clean and in good shape.
I was in room 108 right next to the pool, nice at first, but the noise from people eating breakfast in the mornings got annoying.
Hot water was fine in the shower.
I arrived on the morning flight from Miami on AA. The free shuttle was nice and I was able to check in 4 hours early, no extra charge.
As far as location, there is a decent grocery store about an 8 minute walk away, nicer grocery store about 13 minutes walk and a McDonalds about a 12 minute walk.
The free breakfast is very good. Coffee was amazing.
Overall happy. Will be staying here in the future, though I may spring for a nicer room next time.
