Why owner: Zeida Post chose San Jose

Very simple, because it is a crystal mansion! Panoramic windows, glass floors and stairs, honor the chosen name: 'Casa Cristal'. Various areas of the hotel have been named after crystals from all over the world, also honoring the name: the restaurant:, Murano Bar (Venetian glass), the cafe: Lalique Cafe ( French glass).

Enjoy the best of both worlds: Luxurious, contemporary style, urban living while enjoying nature and the mountains; awakening in a peaceful, natural environment

A joke!

  • 3 of 5

When we 1st arrived...the lights were out! We were not able to complete a walk through (sounds suspicious right)? We used candles the 1st night. When the lights came back on (while sleeping) all guest phones were dead. The house was beautiful but outdated in some areas. There were ants and huge spiders throughout the home. After leaving and returning to the States, the insurance sent over a list of items that were not caused by the renters. Maybe if the owner would've know that the renters were Officers, Nurses, Counselors and business owners, they would not have included such fraudulent claims.

Owner's Response: This review seems to be the icing on the cake. We have had many renters to our property and we have never come across such malicious people. When these guests arrived, there was a power outage. The power outage had nothing to do with the property or ourselves, it was the electric company. They arrived at 11 pm and stayed up all night drinking and partying. The next day we saw first thing in the morning that they had broken the glass balcony and the glass desk in one of the rooms. When I mentioned it to the main person in the group, he asked me if I was sure that it wasn't broken from before. This is an owner operated property and if we did not take very good care of it, we would not have all five star reviews. We go out of our way to please our guests and to be very nice to them. In fact, they asked us for money in return for their inconvenience because of the power outage and we gave them back $250 which we are not supposed to do. They continued damaging our property, they broke a wooden chair and they broke a twin size box spring literally in half. When they checked out we noticed that the screen to the lcd which was on the wall on top of the desk had something wrong with the screen. Sure thing, when we turned it on, the tv was also damaged. The main person in the group, each time I mentioned that something damaged, responded that this was the reason that he had insurance. When I filed the claim for the insurance today, in which I did not even claim everything, he immediately sent me a message questioning the box spring damage and the lcd damage. I sent him the pictures and he said he was sorry. Next thing I saw was this review which is nothing but a lie. If you all are officers, nurses and counselors, all I have to say to you is: What goes around comes around.

Casa Cristal is a dream home! Unforgettable friends trip!

  • 5 of 5

OMG...where do I begin....this house was breathtaking! It looks just like the pictures. The property was clean and well-maintained and the maids did an amazing job everyday! There were 13 of us and we were here for 7 days!

I would like to start with the homeowner, Zeida (& Senor Victor), she was on top of things prior to me booking the actual property. She was swift on responding to my inquiry, even provided me with her personal number to ask additional questions and not once was she annoyed with my 100 questions! Upon arrival she was very hands-on with the group. She aided with booking all of our excursions and made our stay seamless. The house was in a centralized location and nothing seemed far away.

I would also like to say kudos to Abhner (the driver) - he was phenomenal!!! He really helped our group out A LOT and he was soooo patient with us...and as you know when dealing with a large group things can become hectic, but him and the owner kept a smile on their face and such a positive attitude.

The excursions such as the Arenal Hot Springs, Zip lining and the Poas Volcano tour was amazing and I can't stop talking about it. We also took a day trip to Jaco Beach and we also had a great time there!

I FELL IN LOVE WITH COSTA RICA AND could see myself retiring here. I will definitely be back and if I come with a large group I'm staying at Casa Cristal!!! For the price, space and service you can't beat it anywhere else! I felt right at home at Casa Cristal.

Thank you again Zeida, Victor and Abner!!!

Owner's Response: It is our greatest pleasure to learn that we have satisfied our guests and that they enjoyed their stay as well as all the activities that we suggest to them. However, working with Brenda and her friends was not considered work for us. It is wonderful for us, as hosts, to have guests like them, considerate, appreciative, respectful, pleasant, I can go on and on. We are very thankful that you stayed in our property and look forward to hopefully have you back again with us in the future! Many many thanks, Brenda!!

Wonderful experience at Casa Cristal !!!

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start by saying my friends and I had an amazing time in Costa Rica. From the food, to the beautiful rainforest, to its rich culture. I recommend Costa Rica as a true destination gem. Not to mention the hospitality of the people over all but we were made to feel right at home at Casa Cristal. Our hostess Zeida Post was absolutely wonderful from her help in selecting excursions or recommendations on local cuisine her customer service was five star! She even recommended a great transportation company owned by Abner Arias. Casa Cristal is home fit for a king lots of space, aesthetically pleasing rooms, living space, pool and jacuzzi. It even comes with the sweetest housekeeper in Costa Rica. So if you visit Costa Rica give Zeida and her team a call, you wont regret your choice of accommodations.
