great place, clean, spacious room, 3 pools (one heated) and waterfalls on site. Staff nice and not pushy. Breakfast was best we had in CR, homemade banana bread was awesome.
was fine for us but FYI when it says aircon it means a ceiling fan. Was perfectly adequate but if you expect a full-on aircon unit you will be disappointed. The restaurant is nice but if you don't fancy it then there are very limited options for food near the property. None if you don't have a car, especially at night.
Such a unique hotel. I loved the gardens, the reserve with 5 waterfalls (such a lovely hike) and the pools especially the sunset pool. The views from our room was incredible. The sunset views were my favourite. I think the room/ villa that we stayed in was simply the most beautiful room I have stayed in a hotel. I could stay in that room, looking over that sunset view from the terrace for days.
We had a flight very late at night and they kept our luggages out at the reception right by the front door. We were going through our luggage, looking for our things when people were entering the hotel and checking in. They don’t have any room to let you get changed after you check out so if you use the pool after check out your only option is to get changes in the toilet... The restaurant, although it has amazing views, had mediocre food and was extremely!!! Expensive.
Stunning property, wonderful staff. We stayed in 2 different villas (due to extending our stay) and they were both beautiful. The gardens are beautiful and the waterfalls are legit! We will be back! Pics are both from the villa, but I have many more of the fantastci grounds.
The breakfast that came with our room was incredible. The view of the San Jose / Alejuela valley was amazing from our patio. The villa that we stayed in was very private and it was very unique. It was also far enough away from San Jose / Alejuela where you were not in the middle of the city life but close enough to where a 10 minute drive got you to all sorts of really nice restaurants. I highly recommend Xandari for all couples traveling to San Jose.
Overall, our experience at Xandari was amazing! If I am being really picky, the only thing that could be improved on is the pillows. However, this is by no means a deal breaker for the wonderful experience we had at this resort.
We got a villa with a nice view over Alajuela, very clear, spacious and comfortable. There is an immense park with a river trail, a beautiful tropical garden, a chicken aviary... ideal for an easy trekking with children (trail not doable with a stroller). There are 3 swimming pools, all with different views. Staff was nice and helpful overall, though standard for Costa Rica and not as personal as in many of our other hotels (bar is high in Costa Rica ;o). Convenient location for visits of Alajuela and nearby points of interests, and the airport (vehicle needed in every case though).
The restaurant is overpriced: 90USD (with service and taxes) for 2 of the cheapest main courses and 3 glasses of wine, and it has nothing special except a nice view on Alajuela lit at night (but it’s not New-York city, let’s be honest). Also, I asked for an espresso for the breakfast, they would charge me 8 USD ! We ended up having all our meals downtown. This has put us off from the beginning as being the last hotel of our trip we were hoping to settle and rest without having to drive anymore. I was also not convinced by the amount of concrete that they have used everywhere in construction, a lot of massive walls that protrude from the otherwise green landscape; though they have generously painted it with vivid colors which slightly makes it up.
