One of our favorites!

Pros: Room Pools Hiking Staff Proximity to airport
Cons: Nothing
Xandari is so beautiful. We hiked to the incredible waterfall after a delicious breakfast with a view of the Central Valley. The pool was warm and had beautiful grounds and flowers all around. The room with patio and view is unique. This was our 2nd time here and we will always stay here anytime we are in Costa Rica. Love it!

Good hotel, one of the best spas in the country

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: The spa is the best part of this hotel.
Cons: We stayed at a room with two double beds. The bed was good, but it could have been bigger.
Location: The hotel has a nice trail you can hike through. You see some waterfalls. There are many similar places in the area, and also good restaurants.
Xandari is a very nice hotel, near the city and airport, and it's a great place for a quick trip out of the city. What makes it really exceptional, though, is its spa. They have a diverse treatment menu and lots of multi-hour packages that are really fantastic.

Unique hotel

Posted Mar 28, 2015
We spent extended our two day stay at Xandari because it is such a unique and lovely hotel. The rooms are large and colorful with a terrace overlooking the Central Valley. The hotel has three large, clean pools including an infinity pool where the sun sets (awesome). The staff is attentive and anticipates your needs before you do (offered us breakfast to go when we had an early flight). The food is delicious and reasonably priced and the wait staff is excellent. My only complaint is the lack of a fitness center. Fortunately there are lovely grounds and trails to walk but no place to really exercise.

Hotel is ideal for a couple gateway, beautiful and well kept gardens. Main pool is very unique, and you also have other pools closer to the rooms if you like it better. Room is spacious and has a nice view.

A luxurious eco resort

Posted Dec 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed a couple of nights to recover from our flight before venturing further into the jungle. One of previous owners of the hotel was an artist and the hotel exudes Gaudi-esque influences. The other previous owner, an architect built this statement resort to last. The decoration is bright and interesting and creates a colourful holiday atmosphere. The restaurant served high quality healthy food. Most memorable were the breakfasts. You can choose what you want or as many things as you want from the menu as the breakfasts were all inclusive. The Costa Rican cheese was amazing. There is enough to do here not to leave the grounds for 2 days. There are amazingly well built paths through challenging terrain to take you beyond the garden through the jungle to secluded waterfalls. The pool and jacuzzi were inviting and refreshing post-hike. This is a tranquil place to recharge and gently enter the enveloping jungle of Costa Rica.
