This is our fourth or fifth time at Xandari. We love everything about it! The design and decorations of every room and the common areas are just so lovely. There are works of art in every villa, and little treasures to discover. It really lifts your spirits. The gardens, full of beautiful tropical flowers, are just amazing. There is a... More

We stayed here 2 nights: one at the beginning of our Mountain Travel trip and one night on our last day. The rooms and the villas are just gorgeous. You get an incredible view of San Jose and the sunsets. The grounds are stunning and wonderful to walk around. The restaurant's food is very good especially if you order the... More

For many years, after trying various alternatives, we have made a habit of staying at the beginning and end of our CR trips at Xandari. Its proximity to airport yet near idyllic location is ideal. The villas are spectacular, the views are beautiful, good dining room, great hikes (with 4+ waterfalls) and walks thru the grounds and rainforest and wonderful... More

Our first view from our casita was a spectacular view of San Jose at night....an expanse of sparkling lights. We loved the spaciousness of our accommodation and everything was in perfect order. The staff was friendly and everyone we dealt with seemed to enjoy working there.. The pools were beautifully maintained as was the entire landscape. On the property are... More

This is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. The architecture, gardens, hospitality, service was stellar. Unfortunately we were only staying overnight before flying out and arrived at 4:00 p.m. only to have to leave the next morning at 4:00 a.m. I would and could have stayed here for a week and been happy. I loved the colors and... More

My wife and I spent our last two nights of a 10 day trip to Costa Rica at this resort. We loved the property and we elected to have one of the top villas so we had more privacy. The view of the city at night is really cool and to watch the airplanes come and go in the distance... More

The staff are brilliant, rooms spacious and well appointed, the view from our room was just sensational, just don't expect a tv or fast internet in your rooms. This is a place to unwind. The food is also great and so tasty, with regional food done to high class standards. Didn't get chance to walk around the grounds but what... More

Enjoyed our time so much. The food,villa and views were spectacular🎉Gorgeous hikes with orchards,animals and waterfalls. Never had to leave the resort it was all encompassing. I'm sure the spa was remarkable,but unfortunately we didn't get to use it. We felt it was reminiscent of Bali,but so much closer😎

Just the one night , but a great introduction to Costa Rica .The hotel is a riot of colour and mosaics , every building is different . The walks around the estate are a perfect introduction. Food first class both evening and breakfast, views spectacular from villa and restaurant . 3 pools the infinity pool bring the best
