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! :-)
Fabulous Central Valley Hotel, probably the best in The Central Valley
Xandari is really fabulous, set in a beautiful location on the foothills of Poas within about 20 minutes of San Jose Airport & a world away in terms of environment. 5 Stars in every respect & a real joy, gorgeous jungle location, excellent rooms & facilities including 3 pools, chilled, cool & relaxed,fantastic panoramic views from the restaurant & rooms, super friendly, welcoming, efficient & professional staff, even the Gardener's & non customer facing staff are all very nice. Lucy & Brenda on Front Desk super professional & helpful in every respect. Delicious food & great pricing. Alex the Chef unexpectedly created a birthday treat of chocolate covered strawberries for my wife's birthday thanks to the excellent customer service by the front desk. Really love the hotel, the staff & the environment & recommend it 100% to any discerning traveller, you'll want to come back time & time again & btw I am just a regular guest & feel privileged to enjoy being here & give credit where it's deserved.
Perfect Hotel in Costa Rica
It is with great pleasure that I write about Xandari Resort & SPA in Alajuela, Costa Rica. It is like my home away from home. I have been coming there since the turn of the century with family and friends, returning over twenty years. It is not only the natural beauty of Xandari that has drawn me back, it is much more: the attention to details is everywhere and all centered around the comfort and pleasure of the guests. The beautiful shades of turquoise and blue that adorn the walls of the villas, the exquisite harmonious paintings that grace the walls and the colorful art objects that make each villa artistically different. The main lobby, where the dining area is located, has outside seating overlooking a lush tropical garden with the town of Alajuela in the far distance framed by mountains. The food, which is all organic is prepared and presented as a work of art. “On the house” appetizers are placed on the table each night. The Spa is beautiful appointed, and offers a wide selection of treatments, including a chocolate wrap. There are three swimming pools and two jacuzzis, all within easy walking distance. Perhaps at the top of list is the overarching spirit of welcome and caring that permeates the atmosphere. Eugenia, the local manager, and her supporting team have been and continue to be an inspiration of hospitality. The entire staff are following in her footsteps. Carol B. Hillman Harrison, NY, USA
Birding tour of Costa Rica
We started our birding tour of Costa Rica at Xandari resort & spa . From the airport its a short drive to Xandari . What a pleasant experience Right from being greeted at the airport to Check in . The property itself is set in a well landscaped forest with amazing bird life . The staff is amazing . From the GM Eugenia to all the staff alway willing to help and give useful tips. The view of the city San Jose in the night is not to be missed. A great start to our birding tour . Also to mention the breakfast and lunch was super . It’s nice to sit on the veranda of the restaurant for your meals
