That was my favorite hotel of all! A perfect alliance between art, architecture and botanical gardens. A reel gem for the discerning travelers.
Really cool grounds and great views.
We loved our stay! Beautiful place. Wish they had more local food.
Not quite as nice as the rest of our hotels.
The view from Xandari looking out over San Jose at night is Spectacular. The views of the surrounding mountains are vast. We liked the nearness to the airport. We arrived on time & had lunch as the rains started, so we enjoyed the view from our room as we settled in on Tuesday. The rooms are bright & colorful & the grounds are well maintained with marked paths. We did not get to explore the grounds much as we had a tour on Wednesday & another on Thursday which carried us to our next destination of Peace Lodge. We want to go back to Xandari & enjoy/explore the grounds & lap pool.
The hiking trails on the hotel grounds were an unexpected treat so close to the city on our last day. The trails gave us something active to do before we went home. The concierge offered us boxed breakfasts since we were leaving at 2:30 AM. This was really fantastic!
Surprisingly lovely resort with terrific food and excellent staff.
The property is spectacular, and we enjoyed very much the steep walks to the waterfalls and the gorgeous views. It's very interesting and many of the plants were labled, which is wonderful. The room was spacious and well appointed, but our terrace only had one chair, and my bed was not make properly. I awoke in the night to find ants crawling all over the bathroom. I alerted the staff and the woman on duty told me that the ants were coming from the outside, probably for something sweet on the floor. This tells me the room was not properly cleaned (which I suspected from my ill made bed). The restaurant view was gorgeous, but the food was lacking in quality and preparation. My salad was presented in a ridiculous configuration, and the shrimp cocktail was basically inedible. I had a piece, and my daughter tried a piece, and the rest sat on the plate. If the wait staff had been better I would have been able to order something else in a timely manner, but as it was, our waitress only returned after my daughter finished her steak. The horribly overcooked and overpriced shrimp cocktail should have been immediately removed from my bill, but it was not. Only after complaining to three people did they offer to take 15% of the price of the dish. I would recommend that guests eat elsewhere for dinner, and that they check their beds upon arrival. We also had to wait 30 minutes before we were able to get in our room. The so called "warm pool" was not warm at all. The staff was accommodating, but I felt like they did not really care. While the grounds are amazing, I could not in good faith recommend this hotel.
Nice place to stay. Wish we had another day here to enjoy a spa treatment.
Gorgeous Hotel with beautiful gardens. One member of staff a bit rude and grumpy. Perfect pre flight chill place with delicious food and wonderful view
Amazing. Loved the artists touches, room design, and the manicured grounds. Food was excellent and enjoyed the staff and the pool and sauna.
This hotel far exceeded expectations, the service and staff especially were outstanding
This was fine for one night... it's sort of an ugly hotel in a beautiful setting. Staff was super friendly, room was clean, food was good, the property/view was gorgeous. The bed wasn't super comfortable.
FABULOUS in every way!!! (except it would have been nice if they had better bedding: it was rough and better sheets/pillowcases would have given a better night's sleep)
Our best and most enjoyable experience...we were glad this was our last stop. Being close to airport a bonus, but really this was our favorite...Room, gardens, trails, orchards, staff,
We are glad we stayed two days! The food was really good and the accommodations very nice. We walked the trails, but not as far as the waterfalls! We set up an excursion to Doka Estates and the driver was very nice and joined us for the buffet lunch there. The resort was somewhere we would recommend to anyone visiting the area.
It was great but it just got better as the days went by in other places.
Fantastic place! Highly recommend. First rate service and accommodations.
This was beautiful resort! Incredible grounds and views, and beautiful rooms, great food. I would highly recommend this for a day before departing Costa Rica. Very close to airport.
It was a fantastic resort! We loved it, and the staff was wonderful!
Xandari was a total surprise and it was absolutely incredible! We had no expectations and we loved it.
