Beautiful resort!!
My family stayed at this resort a couple of weeks ago. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to recommend it, it’s a beautiful resort with beautiful views of the mountains and the city. Don’t miss the mint lemonades or the walk to the waterfalls!!! It was worth the stay and will definitely go back!!!

Wonderful stay at Xandari for our last day in Costa Rica. Lovely Continental Breakfast with fresh fruit & delicious homemade banana bread, hiked the beautiful trails and cooled off in the Sunset Pool with gorgeous views. The large room was much nicer than expected with complete privacy, colorful artwork, and stunning views. Restaurant views amazing too. We will be back! All the artistic details were amazing. The 5am taxi that we scheduled (not through Xandari) failed to show up & in a panic that we would miss our flight, I asked the gentlemen at the front desk if he had any contacts that might be able to drive us. He quickly made some calls and a driver was there in 3 minutes! Thank you Xandari!

THE choice for Alajuela
We have stayed at Xandari every year for nearly 20 years and their quality remains top notch. Close to the airport and yet feels very removed from the city. The people are super nice and the food is always excellent. We always use Xandari as our 1sf place to stay and then our last place before we leave. All the staff is bilingual so there are no issues if you don’t speak Spanish.

Very unique, peaceful setting w/ awesome views
The large rooms & views are fabulous. Love the natural setting, hiking trails on property & several pools that were serene & never crowded. Can't wait to return. One complaint - no towels ever avail @ any pools even after requesting ! Room rates are slightly high but worth the beautiful & unique property.

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!
