I would actually give this 3.5 if I could, rather than 4. The hotel itself is fine, it's quite un-homely and clinical, but that's why it's fine for a short stopover. We stayed here twice for one night each while we travelled across Costa Rica. Our room the first time was quite nice, large, clean and cool. The second one...

As grandparents traveling with 10 and 12 year old grandsons, this was the perfect place to stay. We were able to get free airport transportation, a 2 bedroom apartment, free breakfast and only a $5 cab ride (for 4) to downtown San Jose for touring the museums. The breakfast was plentiful and to the liking of the boys. A complimentary...

We stayed at this hotel at the beginning of our stay. We got the free shuttle from the airport. The shuttle service was very organized and had our names on a board they were holding. It was longer to get to the hotel than I anticipated. This was not an issue as Alamo dropped our car off to the hotel...

I am going to try to be brief, though I know I'll fail. I was in Costa Rica for two weeks, and I stayed at the Cristina the entire time. This is definitely a surprise of a place for me. I wasn't expecting such a decent place for the price I paid. While I could have stayed at a bnb...

Thanks for your comments, effectively sometimes the pool area fills early specially in the mornings to take advantage of the sunny days.

You get a lot for your money when you stay at the Apartotel Suites Cristina. In my case, travelling with a friend, I got a “suite” with two bedrooms and a living room/kitchen. The kitchen came with an electric stove, microwave, pots and pans, utensils, and a full-sized refrigerator. The room price included a “free” ride from the airport, a...

Nice hotel, very clean, with friendly staff, and nice breakfast. A bit of a trek to the airport (around 25 minutes) which is a $30 cab ride each way. We had thought it was closer, which may have been our fault. Overall a very nice hotel for the money. Our room was huge with a full kitchen.

I stayed at this hotel in San Jose the night before flying home. It's about 20-25 minutes from the airport depending what time of day you have to travel. The hotel offers a shuttle to the airport ($) almost all hours of the day. And if it's off-hours, the staff suggested I pre-order an Uber to save money. My room...

We stayed at Apartotel Suites Cristina on our first and last night in Costa Rica. There is a free shuttle from the airport which came very quickly after our arrival. Unfortunately, going to the airport from the hotel is a paid shuttle (10US dollars) that stops at several hotels on route so make sure you leave enough time! We were...
