Xandari Resort and Spa was the most relaxing and beautiful resort. Landscaped by a owner from California, the paths and landscaping were a gardeners dream. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The restaurant was usually packed prior to the economic downturn, and based on the many meals there, we were not surprised. The Xandari pancakes were delicious and my... More

We picked Xandari to begin our Costa Rican vacation after my brother recommended it. It exceeded our expectations!! We stayed in Villa 7 which had a gorgeous view of the valley. We were able to enjoy waterfalls 1-4; the trails are easy - moderate and will get you ready for other hikes in Costa Rica! The views and food were... More

The Xandari Resort & Spa was an excellent beginning to our trip to Costa Rica, My only regret is we did not have enough time to explore the grounds more and walk to all of the waterfalls. The staff was exceptional. Christian was the best! For breakfast make sure you have the Tower of Health - it is a yogurt,... More

We stayed for a total of two nights, one on our first night in Costa Rica, the other on the night before we left. On both occasions the hotel lived up to the high ratings it had received from so many of the previous reviewers. The location is convenient to the airport, the grounds were beautiful, the view from the... More

We decided to end our 3 week tour of Costa Rica at the Xandari hotel. Close to the airport, but still surrounded by peace and quiet and nature on top of the mountain. Xandari is one of those hotels that charge you enough, creating expectations and then delivering to all of them😊 Friendly English speaking staff, 3 great pools, a... More

We spent our first two nights in Costa Rica after flying into SJO, the resort itself is beautiful! The plants are stunning, the view from our room was breathtaking both during the day and at night. We made a trip out to the hot tub which overlooked the mountains and more greenery, definitely a must do, especially in the rain!... More
