Wow! Where do I begin? My family and I stayed at Xandari for a long weekend getaway. What a beautiful property! The villa was so spacious and well-appointed. It had everything we needed and more, including items in the fridge, an umbrella, fresh fruit, bottled water, and reading material. The view from the balcony of our villa was amazing. I went out there in the mornings and saw all sorts of birds, including vultures flying over. Neat! The staff is so attentive. They brought food to our room when it was raining, helped us determine where to go in San Jose, and arranged for our transportation to the airport upon departure. The spa was pretty awesome! I've never had a massage quite like that one. The Jacuzzi in the jalapa was a definite plus. The restaurant food is good. The complimentary breakfast has a nice assortment to choose from. The lunch was nice as well. They were short-staffed one day at lunch though. One waiter was running around doing almost everything on his own. They also might want to consider expanding the dinner menu to provide more options and working a bit more on the frozen cocktails. Overall though, we were satisfied with the food and felt that we ate very healthy while we were there. I hiked to the waterfalls which was an adventure for sure. I recommend it for anyone who is daring. I saw beautiful birds, butterflies, and flowers while at Xandari. We also visited the goats and chickens on the property. Xandari is a truly beautiful place. This was certainly a vacation to remember.
