Can't get better than this!

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Don't know where to start. Our room was fantastic, the views where amazing, the room was clean and vibrant. The staff was exceptionally helpful, we had difficulty with a rental car and Luis at the front desk saved the day! Our meals were delicious, used a lot of fresh ingredients and fruit. The pools and grounds were top notch.

Magical place, awesome views

Posted Jul 9, 2017
For us, it was worth the extra cab money to spend a night in this awesome resort. The gardens are so beautiful and serene, we also hiked to the waterfalls on the property ( there are walking sticks at the reception). The views from the restaurant/ room/ pool over the valley are awesome. Made us relax instantly after our overnight flight. The personel is very friendly, they made us feel welcome right away. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable. The food was good, prices comarable to US restaurants. Would stay here again, if we come back.

Dont think twice.

Posted Jul 9, 2017
If you are thinking about staying here do it. It's a $6 Uber ride to downtown. The facility is really nice. No need for a a.c. Unit at all. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The only bad side to this hotel is the price of the restaurant. It was $120 and $140 for four per sitting. We just took a Uber to the city to eat. The sodas downtown were great and only cost $20 for four. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable.

Magical honeymoon!

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Pros: Everything was first class, especially the room, spa, restaurant, and staff
Cons: Everything was excellent!
Location: We loved La Paz Gardens and Waterfalls just 40 minutes away and our 3 hour drive to La Fortuna waterfall and Baldi Hot Springs! Costa Rica is amazing!
Xandari is a dream come true. We spent the past week on our honeymoon and it was a magical experience! The staff is fabulous... so warm and professional. The food was incredible every single day. The five waterfalls and the entire property is completely inspirational... complete with breathtaking views from our balcony and restaurant, botanical garden, flowers, butterflies, and birds that makes your heart sing! The spa with essential oils massage and herbal jacuzzi was heavenly! I can't say enough about the private villa, creative decor, colors, artwork, 3 pools, 2 jacuzzis, and innovative architecture with every structure... a truly spectacular paradise ! Xandari is what every resort should be: flawless and unforgettable!

A magical place to stay!

You could spend a week at this wonderful resort and never be bored. The continental breakfast is incredible, the restaurant for dinner top class, the views breathtaking, the many pools perfect for doing laps or letting the kids play, and the many organized tours and trips are amazing.

Wonderful & Friendly Staff with beautiful views

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: The staff was so friendly and helpful
Cons: nothing
Location: The location is in the central valley and within proximity of some of the popular sites such as the La Paz Waterfall Garden (1 1/2 hours)
My husband and I chose Xandari as the place to stay for our entire visit to Costa Rica. Boy, did we make the right choice. The hotel staff was so accomodating and friendly for all our needs. The Restaurant not only had a magnificent crew, they had a fabulous staff and the food was five star. We had the pleasure of eating there almost every day and we were NEVER disappointed. Overall, we look forward to returning to Xandari on our next trip to Costa Rica.

wonderful ending to our trip

Posted May 13, 2017
Great resort close to airport but outside of hussle and bussle of San Jose. I did all the walking paths, very nice and well maintained. Restaurant food was unfortunately average for the price at supper. I had continental breakfast and thi was very good. We stayed in a larger villa and it was very spacious with a fantastic view of San Jose at night and in morning. Used the pools but not the spa.
