Stayed twice on recent family holiday in Costa Rica. The best food we encountered of the four (5*) hotels we stayed in. Xandari is really a collection of generously-proportioned rooms set in beautiful grounds, with a restaurant and a couple of pools (plus a small spa). The star attraction is the five short hikes in the grounds, each to a different waterfall; these alone are well worth the price of a stay at Xandari.
Very few negatives. Given its proximity (25 mins) to San Jose airport, many travelers stay for a single night on arrival or pre-departure - so it's a shame it doesn't have a gym to help people recover after the flight. Rooms lack airconditioning, although at this altitude this was not a major drawback (staying in August). Breakfast service in the restaurant is sloppy and very slow.
Otherwise a great place. Recommended.

Stayed: August 2017

We are so happy for your stay with us and we really appreciate your comments so we will make sure we will put up to speed our kitchen for breakfast time.

Just for you information we had a Gym but we had to close it since none was using it.

We look forward to having you back soon at Xandari.

I travel to Costa Rica frequently for business and needed a room for one night when a friend was in town, so booked this after finding it on Trip Advisor. We fell in love with the grounds, the staff, and the amazing serene waterfall hikes on the property. Their laundry services were reasonable, and the highlight of our stay there was the fact we got to plant a tree as part of their sustainability initiative! HIGHLY recommend this property and can't wait to return to see how big the tree has grown next year :)

This is my second stay at Xandari, this time with some friends, and it didn't fail to amaze everyone.
This hotel is so close to the city and the airport, however, once you're there it seems you're in another place. It is very calm, surrounded by nature and fresh air. There are some trails that are nice to explore the grounds and a nearby river. The property is huge, even going from your room to the main pool may require some driving (internal road) or a 10-min walk if you're located at the other side of the hotel, but even that is enjoyable.
The rooms are very original and spacious, all of them have a great view of the central valley. The restaurant is excellent as well with good variety of options.
Finally, the main pool is big and never crowded, again, with a geourgeous view of the central valley and if you're lucky you may see one of the great sunsets at the end of the day. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stay near the city, but in a relaxing and beautiful place.

Xandari Resort exceeded our expectations. Our only regret is that we were there only one night and did not have a chance to experience all that the 4 acres of resort has to offer. Our room was a King Villa Ultra Plus. We had an amazing view, peace & quiet, fabulous bathroom with garden view & deep soak tub, private balcony overlooking the rain forest grounds & mountains during the day & the city lights at night, a huge room with kitchen, dining area, lounging area & comfortable king bed. The staff is outstanding from concierge to maid service to dining room team to transportation. They have 3 pools of which the Infinity Pool was our favorite due to the amazing view. The grounds, the room & the pool areas were very clean & well maintained. I highly recommend, if you are planning to stay in San Jose, even if only for one night, Xandari Resort is a MUST!
The property grounds are beautiful. The tropical flora & fauna are fantastic. The staff is amazingly helpful.
Communication was not easy. Not sure why but it took time to get a return service request call & for transportation to & from the room to lobby.
The resort has 4 acres of grounds with beautiful gardens & 4 waterfalls to hike to. Also has 3 pools, one which is an infinity with a great view.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe king room. It's worth the extra space & the view!

We only booked one night here and it was NOT enough! This place is beautiful, the grounds are so amazing! Our room was beautiful with a great view of San Jose. We took advantage of the hot tub in the evening and only had time to hike only one of their trails to see one of the breathtaking waterfalls on the property. We really wished we had more time to hike the rest of their trails. The food was fresh and very good. This was my favorite place to stay in our travels in Costa Rica.
