Xandari Resort & Spa offers the quintessential Costa Rica experience. The property’s forest reserve, with five waterfalls and miles of trails for bird-watching, provides the nature guests expect from a visit to Costa Rica. The landscaped gardens, the orchid house, and the farm all provide an additional abundance of tropical goodness. The Spa provides ample opportunity to unwind, to relax, to absorb the surrounding nature. All 24 villas, each uniquely designed and set within lush foliage, have spectacular views. And three times a day, our restaurant demonstrates the role of local cuisine in giving visitors an authentic sense of place.

The rooms were spacious and the views were great! The restaurant had a wonderful view of the city of Alajuela. The breakfasts are complimentary and had a good selection of items. It is not as big as the larger hotels, but satisfying. Other meals were good and creative. Servers

We were booked by the travel agent for one night but we extended to two - good decision! This is really a great resort at which you can unwind after that long flight from Europe and get into the Costa Rica vibe.

The resort is built in a plantation with some great walks and trails in private grounds. Some are a bit steep but they are marked as such. Map is not entirely accurate. We enjoyed our stay and the food was excellent. The only thing that we were not prepared for was the

Dear Colin Thank you for your recent stay with us and we are happy to hear you enjoy the essence of Xandari. Due to the planes noise it is something that we can't control and due to the volcanoes activity (Turrialba & Poas) the airport control tower is changing the route of the planes to avoid the ashes so we hope when the volcanoes will set the routes will be re-installed not crossing by our property as in the past. We look forward to having you back in the near future. Pura vida! Eugenia Solano

If you look up Xandari Resort and Spa Restaurant, you can see reviews for the restaurant; it's a separate listing from the hotel. We just got back from our second stay there and loved it. The trails are beautiful, and there are some small waterfalls on site. The restaurant is open air with beautiful views of the valley below. If you email them directly they can send you the menu information. I had the salmon with mashed potatoes and vegetables, and it was very good.
