HIDDEN GEM NEAR SJO!
I’m absolutely in love with this place, I can’t say enough good things about it. From the customer service at the reception desk, to the AMAZING spa experience and the food - everything was top notch and phenomenal. The man at the front desk was so attentive and worked extra hard to make sure we were all set. The spa is an absolute must - the scenic views, the services, the treatments, the masseuses.. everything was PERFECT. The food was DELICIOUS and there’s a beautiful view while eating. The chef came out to greet us afterwards and we couldn’t stop telling him how amazing everything was. But my absolute favorite part of this experience was our waiter at the restaurant - Oscar. He was friendly, efficient and went above and beyond to make sure we received 5 star treatment the entire time we were eating. Oscar was kind and he added so much joy to our experience at the restaurant. This resort is truly magical - 10/10 recommend!!!!!
Stunning boutique hotel with great customer service in retreat-like setting near airport
Xandari is completely unique, stunningly-beautiful hotel about 15 mins from the airport but feels like you're away from it all. The beautiful architecture, delicious food, and great customer service make it an amazing oasis in San Jose. The grounds are also stunning, including beautiful walking paths and waterfalls.
So glad to be back!!
We had another wonderful stay at Xandari, it really is a true gem! We had concerns due to Covid, but decided at the last minute to travel, so glad we did! Entering Costa Rica was a breeze with the required insurance, less than $100 for both of us. Staff in masks always and making sure you’re taken good care of. It was so good seeing Lucy again, she is so helpful! As always, she answers my many questions before we arrive. Last trip we left a charger, we told Lucy to keep it or give it to someone who might need one. She sent it to us anyway! What can I say? They take care of their guests! CR does it right, portable sinks everywhere, in front of grocery stores, banks, shops etc. Disinfectant mat to step on before entering Xandari and masks, hand sanitizer. Xandari was as beautiful and lush as always, we had two different villas, each spotless with great beds and those amazing views!! Trails are well kept and we basically had the three pools to ourselves. Xandari arranged our pickup to and from SJO, we had a delightful driver, Hayro Hernandez, so knowledgeable and always on time. The food here is plentiful and delicious. We got our PCR test while traveling, we printed our negative results when back at Xandari. Our check in at the airport was seamless having our results printed. We hope to be back sooner than later! Thanks Xandari for another great time.
Luis at the front desk is amazingly helpful. I recommended that they switch from cool LED lighting to Warm LED or incandescent for a calmer atmosphere at night, and he was very receptive to my advice.
Superb Food and Service
My second visit this year and I will continue to return for my needed immersions in nature and the luxurious villas and meals. It is one of the best hotels in Costa Rica and by far the best in Alajuela or near the San Jose Airport, yet a rainforest experience with waterfalls, forest trails, gardens, birds, butterflies and the friendliest service you will find anywhere. Yes, I will keep coming back, and I live just an hour away in Atenas! :-)
