    We stayed 3 nights at the end of our Costa Rica trip and greatly enjoyed the hotel. The room/cabin provided great privacy and a fantastic view of the valley below. We ate at the restaurants all three nights and though the food was excellent, a lot of the vegetables are from their own organic garden. The pools and hot tubs... More

    Fantastic views, and the Villas are so lovely and unique. Beautiful gardens, and make sure to enjoy a massage at the spa. Staff is so so friendly and eager to help. The restaurant is outstanding. Very comfortable and though the Villas had no A/C, was very comfortable with the breezes coming up the hill. Swimming in the Sunset pool was... More

    Place was beautiful. Rain occurred as soon as we arrived. Instead of going to the waterfall, my significant other an cousin went to get a massage while took beautiful pictures. Views were from heaven. Took pictures of birds from nearby tree. Could hear howler monkeys in the distance. Enjoyed the food, beer and wine. Flowers were incredible. Recommend more time... More

    Xandari was our 'first impression' of Costa Rica, where we stayed for one night after arrival. It is stunning in every regard. View, accommodation, art everywhere, stunning gardens, infinity pool. Even though it was raining for most of the time we were there, we were able to appreciate and enjoy the manicured gardens, pool and grounds. The whole place is... More

    We spent out last night in Costa Rica at Xandari, and it was a great way to say goodbye to the country. The villa was great, the infinity pool was a great place to relax and view the Central Valley, and the grounds were great to hike around before we left for the airport. The wifi was a bit weak...

    The suite (villa) was beautiful. We had seen the photos and had been a little concerned that they were a little loud, but we were wrong. The villas fitted in to their environment perfectly.

    Stayed at Xandari on our last night in Costa Rica coming back from the Central Pacific Coast. Exquisite views, very cool atmosphere. Nice restaurant. Banana pancakes are incredible! Really enjoyed the morning hike to the waterfalls before running to airport which is close by. Excellent stay!

    Stayed here one night before leaving San Jose to return home. Beautiful setting and grounds, for sure. Villas had fantastic views. We were not there long enough to partake of any of the walks or pools or activities that the resort had, so I suspect that one should remain at least 2 nights to take full advantage. We are just...

    We have visited Costa Rica numerous times over the past 10 years. Usually we arrive San Jose in the evening and stay across the street from the airport.
