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 dcor 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 caf, 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.

Over 20 years, (and 30 to 40 room-nights per year) of vacationing in Costa Rica, I have not found a finer hotel than Xandari. It is exquisite. Xandari has become my home away from while on business in the Central Valley and simply replentishing my soul with Pura Vida.

When I searched for a Hotel near to San Jose I found Xandari what impressed me was the contemporary art and gardens combined. I have to say the experience of walking the numerous paths lined with exotic flowers and plants transported me to the islands of Hawaii. This is what you will experience....When you arrive you smell the sweet scent of Jasmine. The villa we stayed in #18 was beautiful with beautiful unique curved wood ceilings and amazing stained glass windows the villa was very spacious with a separate living room. The shower was beautiful with its glass wall looking out to our own private garden. The bed was very nice and comfortable. Our meals were 5 star. Don’t miss the Apple Pie with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Breakfast was included with our stay and consisted of cereal,tropical fruits, yogurt, fresh juice, homemade breads, homemade jam and amazing granola bars, hard boiled eggs fresh from their nearby farm. What a great way to start the day. When I travel to Costa Rica I plan to include Xandari in my travel itinerary. Amazing!!!

This was a lovely respite for two weary travellers who wanted to recover from the flight, jet lag, immigration lag and road rage lag. From the moment the gates opened we were transported to a wonderful oasis of calm and comfort. We loved the view from both the room and restaurant which showed San Jose with a backdrop of mountains. The food was excellent if a little expensive - watch out for the additional taxes which amount to 23%. Staff were amazing as was our villa which was very comfortable and clean. The beds were especially a joy as I have a bad back and a cheap bed will leave me like Quasimodo in the morning. We had 2 nights and we're sorry to leave. For everything that mattered to us this was perfect. I loved the fresh fruit and home made granola bars for breakfast and the coffee was excellent. Lovely place to stay.

The hotel was our first stop after arriving in Costa Rica. The rooms were spacious and had a beautiful view. Twin beds was a tad strange but after a long flight not an issue! Breakfast was disappointing as it was extra for hot food. Superb grounds with long walks. Shame it was so wet.
