This is a wonderful hotel about 30 minutes from the San Jose airport. Our second visit to this luxury hotel. It has every amenity, but we go for the hiking trails and the wonderful food and close proximity to Poas Volcano and Waterfall Garden. Restaurant has a panoramic open air view of San Jose with birds of every kind and color flying by and feeding near. Rooms are spacious and our particular room was a large circle of windows looking into the forest. Simply beautiful, have never stayed in such a unique room. Shilenne greeted us on arrival, was all smiles, and made us feel very welcome. She also spent time with us to sort out any questions about the area, spent a long time helping us with the map. We had our own car and traveled a bit during the day. Another visit, I would spend more time at the resort as it has beautiful grounds, an orchid house, butterflies and gardens all over. Blue morpho butterflies are fairly common here. Beautiful sunsets from the west side jacuzzi. Twice we had the jacuzzi to ourselves. Non alcohol drinks and bottled water are daily stocked in rooms and free. What a gem of a hotel. Very reasonable restaurant prices. Restaurant servers the best ever. Matilda, Diana, and another waiter who's name I didn't get were cheerful all day long and attending our every need. We had a flight problem and could only stay 3 nights instead of 4. We were given credit for the lost night and were allowed to use the money for any hotel service including restaurant, gift shop, or spa. Xandari was the only hotel that gave us full credit for the time we lost. I am not sure they do this for everyone, but I felt they were most empathetic and understanding to our travel trouble. For a luxury hotel, such a personal feel. If I ever get the chance, I will go back, and if I am lucky, will get the same staff.
