Xandari is beautifully designed, including the buildings and grounds. There's wonderful art, sculpture, colors, tile work, plants, flowers, trees, etc. everywhere. The main building has a restaurant, and we ate dinner and breakfast there. It was delicious, and reasonably priced (for tourists). Our room was very large and comfortable. It had great views, a (voyeuristic, but fun) shower, and was very well decorated.
There's a spa on site, and I wish we had time to use it. Among the many places we stayed in Costa Rica, Xandari's spa seemed most modern and worthwhile.
The grounds are fantastic. In the morning, we took an hour long walk that went through some amazing vegetation and viewed 2 or 3 wonderful waterfalls.
One caution--bring ear plugs, because the acoustics are not so great and it's easy to hear your neighbors.
