CASA REFLEJOS, LUXURY APARTHOTEL

Escazú Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment Suites, 1, 2 & 3 Bedrooms + portable bed(s), private baths

Casa Reflejos is an affordable alternative for short or extended stays with the comforts of home. It is ideal for individuals, family, or company executives as it can accommodate up to 32 people in the complex.

Our suites are fully furnished with all the comforts of home. Includes cable TV and unlimited access to wired and wireless Internet. We also provide you with a safety deposit box to place your valuables in each suite at no extra charge. You only need to bring your personal belongings and make yourself comfortable.

The concept of executive suite has become very popular in the last 10 years due to the comfort demands of the experienced traveler. Vacationers as well as people on work assignments feel the need to have their own place, without the commitment of having to sign a lease and furnish an apartment for a possible short term.

Due to the fact that we are located on a gentle slope toward the mountains, our complex has a great view of the Costa Rican Central Valley. Casa Reflejos is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens native to Central America combined with an assortment of amenities such as heated pool, outdoor jacuzzi, BBQ area w/television, gym, dry sauna and steam room.

A great outdoor activity available nearby is mountain bike riding. The owner, Richard, has been doing it here for the past 20 years. In only 10 minutes you are completely away from the city and are in a country setting.

Come and enjoy!

I am a builder from Chicago, USA. I have 2 children and a Costa Rican wife. This aparthotel business has been the most enjoyable project that I have ever done, due to the great visitors we get.

Rosie Brenes purchased this apartment in 2001

I have been living in Costa Rica for the past 20 years. I have lived in the Escazu area almost the whole time. I am a builder / developer. I first saw the property about 12 years ago to possibly help the previous owner sell it. I started to get interested in it myself when I saw the huge potential that it could have if it was properly remodeled. I bought it and spent the next 3 years remodeling all of the 11 apartments and the main house that I live in with my family. Escazu is by far the number 1 suburb of San Jose, when it comes to restaurants, shopping and entertainment.

Location is key to staying at Casa Reflejos, while it is close to supermarkets, several bars and restaurants in the important residential and commercial area of San Rafael de Escazu, close to downtown San Jose.

FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled extensivley and have never written a review. I felt compeled to write this review as the reception, service, attention to detail i recieved while on my stay at Casa Reflejos was outstanding. Upon my arrival which was late they arranged for a private taxi to pick me up at the airport, Then upon my arrival at Casa Reflejos i was met by the owner Richard," and may add that this was at 1:15 am". he helped with my luggage, showed me the room and took the time to answer questions i had about Costa Rica as this was my first visit to this beautiful country. In the morning i then met his manager Esther, what a wonderful, helpful and kind lady. She took the time ,everytime i had a question and arranged trips and excursions for activities i was interested in. She genuinly cares about the guests.

The property was extremly well maintained and clean and it felt like your own private piece of paradise. The veiws are fantastic and i would recommend Casa Reflejos to anyone.

Bravo to Richard , Esther and the whole staff for making my stay enjoyable. I will be going back to Costa Rica and will stay there again.

Relaxing with a beautiful view of the city.

  • 5 of 5
Relaxing and thoroghly enjoyable, a little of the beaten path. Step were a challenge not recommended for anyone with disabilities, or small children without supervision. I felt very safe with the security of locked gates in the country atmosphere with a city view . Very clean and well maintaned. I found it so nice to have the owner to be a resident and live there year round in the casa. Way to go Richard !

Our Favorite

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Casa Reflejos and we just could not recommend it more highly. We stayed this time in Apartment #10 which has a spectacular view of the valley and San Jose, with the volcanos Irazu and Poas in the distance. Mario, the manager, is wonderful and has been completely attentive to our needs. The owners, Richard and Wendy, who live there with their charming son, Sean, are warm and welcoming.
There is daily maid service as with a hotel, but we appreciate the qualities of an apartment rather than just a hotel room. We were able to buy food at the local organic farmers' market and cook for ourselves when we didn't feel like going out. The bed was great and there is a nice desk for setting up the laptop.
The location on the side of the hills of Escazu, make it super comfortable with the temperature and we never experienced it being too warm because of the perfect breeze that flows through the windows every day. We also appreciated the wonderful pool and spa tub, as well as a great barbeque and entertaining area around the pool, which is surrounded by beautiful tropical trees and plants and tons of orchids.
There is no question but that we would stay here each time we return to Costa Rica. It was a very lucky find for us and we can’t wait to be back there.

Casa Reflejos - A Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed @ Casa Reflejos about six times over the past two years. It's a wonderful place. The apartments are immaculate. Each one has a gorgeous view of the city and mountains. The grounds are beautifully covered with native plants and trees. I love to listen to the birds chirping in the morning.The weather is great w/ daytime temps in the low 80's and evenings in the 60's. The staff is very friendly and always extremely helpful. The location is ideal w/ shopping, restaurants and a mall nearby. The pool and BBQ area are a great place to spend an afternoon. After a dip in the pool go to the sauna, or sit in the jacuzzi and relax. Casa Reflejos gets my highest recommendation.

The Best

  • 5 of 5
I visit San Jose at least 3-4 times a year and can safely say there is no better place to lay your head than Casa Reflejo. Having stayed in some of the city's best hotels, none compare to the comfort and truly first class service I receive here. Since my first visit here over five years ago, I've made it a point to only stay here. The rooms are large, very comfortable and modern. The views are amazing... even local clients of mine are impressed (and they live here year-round!) Best of all, when I don't feel like venturing out, there's more than enough to do on the property itself... That's the sign of a perfect hotel. The entire staff caters to my every need as if I were the CEO of a Fortune 500 company: What more could anyone ask for? If you go, be sure to ask for Mario... He's the General Manager and makes each and every one of my stays more memorable than the next.

Travelling Retiree

  • 5 of 5
For the past few years whenever i travel to Costa Rica, which is a few times a year , i always make a reservation with Casa Reflejos. The Aparthotel is conveniently located near several very good restaurants, shoppings centers, supermarkets, banks and serviced by very dependable local taxi service. I especially like the location upon the mountain where you are provided a great view of the central valley below and a comfortable feeling from the tropical breeze. The apartments are very clean with much more room than a hotel room would provide. The apartments are fully furnished with all the convenience of home. Casa Reflejos also provides daily maid and laundry service except on sundays. The staff at Casa Reflejos is always very friendly and strives to make your stay an enjoyable one. Because of the facilities and services provided, my stays at Casa Reflejos has always been great. I would definitely recommend anyone traveling in the area to give Casa Reflejos a call, you will be glad you did.
