Stayed for two nights at Xandari on arrival in Costa Rica and it was the perfect wind down after busy work weeks and to set us up for the adventures ahead elsewhere in Costa Rica. The hotel do offer advice on tours, but as we had planned those for later in the trip we took full advantage of time to relax. The hotel was ideally situated, only 20 minutes from San Jose airport and yet on arrival you would not know this. The views we had from our "cottage" were stunning, looking out across the valley to the mountains beyond. The staff were wonderful, friendly and efficient and willing to accommodate including driving us or our drinks between hotel and rooms when we didn't want to carry! We loved the grounds which are so well laid out and a joy to "lose" yourself in. I could not find fault with our accommodation. Brightly colored, light and airy and well serviced. It was incredible waking up and literally opening eyes to such splendid views with the huge windows, then walking into the fabulous shower room - one of my favourite things about the rooms - with its own garden! Spa service was excellent - we took advantage of the full afternoon package and pools were lovely - clean and a nice design, again with amazing views. I would definitely return, and hope to soon.
