Hidden Oasis
My daughters (15 and 12) and I stayed here the last night in Costa Rica. It was the perfect way to unwind and relax before our trip back to the states. It’s very close to the airport. In fact, at night you can see the landing lights and see planes take off and land. The spa had a spectacular view at sunset and we enjoyed a herbal healing jacuzzi in our own private room. The staff, especially Philippe and David, were very welcoming. We enjoyed our experience even though it was just one night. Made it harder to leave Costa Rica though. But we’ll be back!

Our go to Hotel/resort near San Jose.
Our hotel of choice when flying in and out of SJO Costa Rica. We have stayed many times and each time our expectations are always met. Highly recommended. Great food, excellent rooms and accommodations and excellent service. The Xandari gardens and trails are beautiful and extensive including waterfalls and wildlife.Try the spa for a relaxing massage. Can't go wrong.

The Perfect Getaway in Paradise
My stay was great, it was amazing from getting info about the city to the resorts amenities. If you are looking for a great experience and comfortable, it works perfectly. from the view to the landscape and waterfalls it made it a real vacation for me. Besides the wifi signal being weak, it was great.
