We stayed 2 nights, one in a villa, but there were none available for our second night, so we moved to a duplex on night 2. Both were amazing! The rooms were colorful, clean, and the beds were comfortable. The views from the patio were remarkable! We swam in the "Sunset Pool" again, with outstanding views and manicured landscaping! The...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, booking 2 rooms for ourselves, the grandparents and our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren. First impressions were that this is a well maintained and beautiful resort. The 3 pools are lovely. The rooms are large and the staff quite friendly and very kind. Our grandkids loved the hiking and swimming. I rated... More

We stayed at Xandari before flying home from San Jose. Beautiful villa with an a amazing view of the valley, lovely hikes and gardens, and a great restaurant and spa. We had a terrific massage at sunset - reviving to see the lights of the city below us. Exceptional service too.

I talked to lots of people who only stayed one night either at the start of their vacation or the end since Xandari is so close to the airport. It is perfect for a long stay as well. I've been here twice now. For 5 days in June and 8 days in July and I am counting the days until... More

Stayed one night before heading to the rest of our vacation. Great location and wonderful resort over looking the city. Restaurant is fantastic for both breakfast and dinner. Be sure to take the hike down to the waterfalls!

Really loved this place. The views are amazing . The grounds are really worth exploring and have some beautiful waterfalls. We pottered around for over an hour and did not see another soul. The food is fantastic and homemade. All the staff were helpful but Christian in particular stood out. He seemed to do so many different roles and really... More

We stayed at Xandari the night before our early morning flight. We arrived around 5pm, so we were not able to enjoy the grounds completely. What we did see was gorgeous. I would have loved to explore the trails! We did take a swim in their large infinity pool and spa. Lovely. The pool water was warm! The staff seemed... More

So pleased and fortunate to have spent a few days here. As previous reviewers have written, this is a lovely place. We really enjoyed hiking the trails, which were well marked. Restaurant was very good. (Photos herewith) Our spa treatment (the coconut wrap with add ons) was awesome. I was unprepared for the beauty of the couples room., which had... More
