Just returned after 2 nghts at Xandari. $20-$25 cab trip from San Jose airport. Up a hill with great view of city and mountains. Since it is owned by an American architect and his designer wife, the resort is like staying in a modern art museum. Our room had a stained glass window, several nice pieces of art on the wall, a great patio, and was very quiet. The breakfast was included. The melas we had were all right, but as most food in Costa Rica, not gourmet or memorable. Used a base for a tour to La Paz Waterfall. The hiking trail to several waterfalls on the property was well maintained, althoughthere are about 250 stairs:) Had a great welcome couples massage upon arrival in the spa with its own hot tub and view of the valley (reserve before you come to assure services available).
