Amazing, Relaxing, Safe Enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Casa Cristal Apr 6-9 for a bachelor party with a group of 14. Plenty of space with for everyone. We spent most of our time in pool and jacuzzi which were both heated , clean and relaxing. Zeida and Victor were very accommodating to our every need. The House was clean and the chefs prepared an amazing dinner. Our driver Abner was very patient and didn’t rush us at all. He knew all the great places to hang out and kept us safe. Thanks again Zeida, Victor and Abner for making our stay fun, enjoyable and relaxing. We will see you again for sure!! Simply AMAZING!!!

San Jose panaromic views with outstanding service

  • 5 of 5

House is a gigantic, hillside mansion with 9 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, lots of balconies, pool, and hot tub. One feels like a rap mogul snaking around this expansive square footage.

Victor and Abner delivered top notch service. Unparalleled.

We were a bachelor party and we had no problems.

There are not enough stars to give Casa Cristal – 5 stars does not do it justice!! I stayed with a group of 10 for a bachelor party weekend. Zeida and Victor were world class hosts and were available to answer any questions we had. The views from the house are EPIC! We booked the chefs for one night and the food was AMAZING! Zeida helped us book transport for in town and out of town trips. I can’t say enough good things about this place!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Zeida was an awesome host. She accommodated us for everything we needed and she made sure we made the most of the stay. I would reccommend getting the chefs as the food they prepared was fresh and delicious. The house was absolutely stunning and is a lot bigger than expected with an amazing view of the city at night. Overall I strongly reccommend the house for anyone planning on visiting Costa Rica

Casa Cristal is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

  • 5 of 5

Me and my buddies stayed in this Mansion for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. Pictures do not do any justice and the hospitality from Victor and Zeida was amazing. They really know their job very well. They arranged for our transportation during our stay , starting from picking up from Airport and dropping us back. Our drive Abner was very friendly, spoke good English, understood our needs very well and delivered. The property was clean with stunning views. I would recommend this property to others.. And, yes given a chance I will go back again and again.. Thank you Zeida, Victor and Abner for making our trip memorable.
