My room was spacious and luxurious. The views of the central valley are unparalleled. The grounds are beautiful - the waterfalls are worth the hike. It's a very green hotel, they grow most of their own fruits, veggies, and have chickens for eggs. The decor is classic Latin american. love it!!!!

I went here as part of a ladies retreat and it was perfect. I had a bad back and had a reflexology massage and it worked wonderfully. The food at the restaurant was great and the view was amazing. Highly recommend.

Whilst I had 6 hour layover, I decided to relax @ Xandari Spa. Everything was amazing there! From the nicely trimmed landscape to the beautiful restaurant over looking the countryside while beautiful butterflies & exotic birds fluttered around. However, the spa hut was the cream of the crop. I got my own private hut with a open jacuzzi which also...

The prior reviewer stole a lot of my thunder thankfully, saving me from a lot of typing! I second every one of his positive comments and agree that Xandari is an absolute treasure that should be experienced first hand. I do, however, have a couple recommendations for those visiting this beautiful resort to hopefully maximize the experience. 1. Bring binoculars........

I visited Costa Rica for the first time and stayed at Xandari Resort in October 2013, primarily based on previous TA reviews. I was not disappointed at all, and if anything, Xandari exceeded my already high expectations. I stayed at Xandari for 8 nights at the beginning of my trip (villa #16), and then another 4 nights at the end...

This is a gem of a property not too far from the airport. Lots of time has been spent landscaping and creating walking trails around the property. The view from my room was spectacular. I liked the architectural style of the rooms, which are all situated in a private manner. The only reason I did not give it a "5"...

My wife and I just went to Xandari Spa for a couples massage and herbal jacuzzi. We aren't spa goers but the service was excellent and it was so relaxing! Conrad and Vera did the messages and they were both great. The view is incredible from the jalapas. Xandari was awesome at making this and pleasurable experience, they even gave...

Wow! Where do I begin? My family and I stayed at Xandari for a long weekend getaway. What a beautiful property! The villa was so spacious and well-appointed. It had everything we needed and more, including items in the fridge, an umbrella, fresh fruit, bottled water, and reading material. The view from the balcony of our villa was amazing. I...
