We first visited xandari in 2008 and had the opportunity to return in 2021. It did not disappoint. The path by the waterfalls, the amazing grounds, the fabulous staff - especially Oscar, Erica, and Alex - wonderful. A beautiful stay. Although there was a limited menu, the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I would highly recommend this authentic and unique boutique hotel.

Review

Xandari

Very friendly accommodating staff at reception as well as the restaurant. Lucy, Kevin and Nancy were happy to help arrange excursions for our free day in San Jose and helped us choose one that was a good fit.

Carlos and Karen met us at the airport to transfer us to the hotel and accompanied us on our excursion, providing interesting information about the area and recommendations for places to stop for lunch as well as fresh fruit along the way. Carlos also shuttled us to and from the airport multiple times as we moved around the country in between stays at Xandari. Always friendly and efficient

Alex and Oscar took great care of us in the restaurant, accommodating our teen’s more particular palate and leaving us all happy and full. Delicious local flavors and ample portions at every meal. And we always felt greeted by an old friend.

We had an issue when we misremembered our room safe combination and someone came immediately to help us. He was patient and friendly. After we checked out we thought we’d lost one of our belongings and reached out via email. Lucy followed up and showed concern, as well as eventual celebration when we found the item among our own mess later.

A nice bonus is the resident cat who will gladly accept your attention and ear scritches.

Room tip: A great option near San Jose but with a feel of being away from the city as well
