Xandari Resort & Spa in Alajuela, Costa Rica

Immerse yourself in lush tropical beauty, surrounded by 40 acres of vibrant landscape high above Costa Rica's Central Valley, and soak in the sunny skies of Xandari Resort & Spa. Just outside of San Jose, this amazing resort - with approximately three miles of scenic trails, a river and waterfalls - will show you the true wonder of Central America. Stunning guest villas offer flowing architecture that winds through the gardens and creates a modern-meets-tropical design that is at once elegantly stunning and gracefully tranquil. Bright and open rooms are spacious and breezy, with gleaming tiled floors, pure white walls, and vivid colorful accents - all tied in to the rich wood décor and furniture. Brilliant natural light streams in through large sliding glass doors, while the views from private garden terraces will truly take your breath away.

As the sun rises over the valley take a leisurely morning stroll through the resort's botanical gardens, feeling the cool breeze as it carries the myriad songs of birds. Enjoy a hike along 4 kilometers of trails through the dense jungles around the resort, following the Tacacori River to five magical waterfalls and cooling off with a dip in the pools. Venture out on a bird watching tour in the morning, followed by a walk through the greenhouse and farmyard, then stretch out by the pool for an afternoon cocktail. Take a day out in the valley for the Doka Coffee Tour, where you will learn all about the process of making coffee and can even pick your own. In the evening make your way into downtown San Jose to stroll d6own the beautifully lit streets, shopping in boutiques and charming local shops, stopping for a drink at a café, and delving into the fabulous street food. With the sun setting over the valley now, after a full day of adventure and relaxation, return to the resort for dinner at the restaurant, where delicious Costa Rican cuisine is served outside as the sky becomes fiery reds and purples until the stars come out.

My fiance' and i really enjoyed this resort, beautiful grounds, artwork, and rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff were all very pleasant and the food was great. The Spa was very relaxing and tranquil. I am a local gringo living in Arenal, and I will be going back to Xandari next week during my business in San Jose. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting peace and tranquillity. If you want wifi and television, you may want to pick another hotel. Thanks Xandari and pura vida!!!

We stayed here one night before we flew out from San Jose. All the raving reviews and stunning pictures made us so excited to stay at the hotel. But maybe we are just unlucky. This one night almost ruined our wonderful week long honeymoon stay in Costa Rica. Upon checking in. The receptionist was very short on hotel info but forceful on other activities the hotel offer. We didn't get a welcoming drink every other hotel in Costa Rica offers. These were all no big deal. The real horror was after we checked in to the room, we found a dead bug along with big grey green and black stains in our made bed. We called front desk and 10 minutes later a guy showed up with a dirty mop. Like seriously what is he gonna do with it?! We had requested a Uber to go out and the car had just arrived so we made the trip to front desk ourselves to express our concern and made a request to change room. We asked if they could just move our belongings for us (it's all packed and ready to go) because we really need to leave right at this moment. The receptionist then turned around and started talking with this women hiding in a closet (we assume she was the manager on site). They kept talking and talking for over 10 minutes. Finally he turned around and said he could move us to another room but that room only had double bed instead of one king bed which we agreed because at that point we simply didn't care anymore. All we want is a decent clean room so we can just relax before we leave. I then asked again if they can just move our stuff for us because our car was waiting for us. Or if we can do it after we come back. Receptionist then replied that they leave at 10pm. No one would be able to assist us after that time and that his "partner" would move with us( the man with the dirty mop) right now and he already has the key. Sure, we really just wanted to get it over with so we went back to the room with the so called partner and followed him to another room only to find out he forgot the key to the new room! After he came back and let us in it was another 10 minute of our time. We left right after we put our belongings in the new room. When we finally have time to check the room after a night out in San Jose, we were just in complete shock. The window screen at front door had huge holes in it. Both of the beds had stains on them. The bathrobes were YELLOW. The shower was the most disgusting shower I've ever seen. Public showers are better than that. All the body wash. Hand wash. Body lotion bottles were half full.we had 2 half rolls of toilet paper the bathroom that were completely different quality... Words can't describe how disappointed we were to end our honeymoon on such bad note. Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this property.

I can't imagine a better place to stay to get start our trip. The views are incredible! The resort & gardens were beautiful and the staff was more than wonderful. The food was delicious. Just don't make the same mistake that I did - plan to stay for more than one night!!
