This place is gorgeous. We had room 11 near reception. The room is huge & the arched wood ceiling is incredible & makes it feel very expansive. I adored the art, architecture &the style of this place with its colorful mosaics, stained glass, & modern yet whimsical decor. There is something interesting to look at everywhere you turn. Shower area is indoor/outdoor but with privacy. The beds were very comfortable & the sheets high quality. So comfortable and truly is like an apartment since it is equipped with a small kitchenette. There is plenty of seating with a sofa & chairs. Outdoor patio is so lovely with a view over San Jose. It was really special to watch nightfall with the lights of the city glittering in the background. The clouds roll in and out and its truly a sight. The grounds are gorgeous-all the pools pristine & well designed. The waterfall hikes are invigorating. Wish I had more time to explore but we just stayed 1 night prior to departing from San Jose. The greenhouse & animals are such a treat. I think they have two of the happiest & cleanest goats I have ever seen. Then again, all of the animals I encountered in Costa Rica seem so content! The restaurant is great-food is delicious & the setting can't be beat as it also overlooks the city. Breakfast buffet was beautiful-granola bars being a highlight (never thought I'd say that)! I wish we had more time to stay at this enchanting place & I would gladly live there! Highly recommend!…
This was the end of our vacation, we left another hotel in the middle of San Jose & were looking for some tranquility - we found it here. The room was clean with great amenities (mini bar, large shower, nice linens) & a great city view. It was very peaceful with pools/hot tubs & trails with animal watching. The staff seemed accommodating & helpful and the property was very secure. Breakfast was fantastic with a buffet as well as typical option.
Great experience. They have an on-site hiking trail and waterfalls that are amazing. You actually don't have to leave the premises. Their customer service is superb! There was free breakfast when we went, and it was delicious. Definitely a good experience. Definitely recommended.
Second trip to Zandari and can’t wait to come back! So close to the city yet right in a forest. The attention to detail is spectacular! Strongly recommend!! Special thanks to Evelyn at the restaurant ☺️
We spent our last weekend in Costa Rica here. The setting and service in the hotel were outstanding especially the restaurant staff. The pools were large and typically were we the only people in the pool which was a bonus. We had an issue with cleaning in one of our rooms but the staff was very attentive to it after we brought it yo their attention.The hotel was about 25 minutes from SJO airport.
The perfect end to our honeymoon! The staff go above and beyond to welcome and look after you throughout your stay. The rooms are spacious and offer a private relaxing outdoor space too. The range of pools is really fantastic and ensures a quiet and relaxing spot is always available. We took advantage of the hike trails, visiting the beautiful waterfalls and even went for a dip at the bottom of fall 5! We also took advantage of their plant a tree scheme which was a unique and lovely experience. The spa is wonderful. The relaxing combo involving jacuzzi and a massage was incredible, perfect end to our trip.
There was nothing that wasn't anticipated during our incredible stay at Xandari in June 2022. My extended family - 13 of us - were treated like royalty and were so disappointed that our itinerary only allowed for one night! The food, drinks, rooms, hospitality, views, artwork - Everything was exceptional. We cannot recommend Xandari high enough. We will definitely be back! THANK YOU!
This place is amazing!! Staff is very nice and profesional! The service is great! Oscar who was the waitress for my table was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. He recommended “plato Caribeño” which tasted amazing. This place is recommended 💯 if you go to the restaurant to have dinner ask for Oscar he is Great! I love it!
This place is a hidden gem!!!! The service. The grounds. The waterfalls. The FOOD!! Wow A+++ From the moment you walk in you feel like you stepped into another realm. Very welcomed, secluded and BEAUTIFUL!! And it’s only our first day!! Will def be back!!
The views from the room, restaurant, spa, and main pool are incredible! This a perfect stop near the airport before you head home or travel to another part of the country. The food was INCREDIBLE - a little pricy - but we were on our honeymoon, so we were prepared. The service was amazing (shoutout to Erika, Nancy, Evelyn, Alexander, and Oscar)! The onsite waterfall hike and botanical gardens were beautiful. Overall, I would highly recommend!
