We stayed at Xandari after recommendations from our travel agent, Jonathan from Vacationcity.com. We had a long drive from Tamarindo to San Jose to get our flight. He thought a night at Xandari before going back to the states would be perfect. He was right!!
First, the room is decorated in a really funky California style (the owners are from California). The literature written by the owners explain the history of the resort (it used to be a working coffee plantation). Plus, it introduced you to the entire staff.
We enjoyed our dinner overlooking the lights of San Jose. We were so happy to be in a quiet, relaxing atmosphere out of the city life. We were on our honeymoon.. and it was perfect.
We walked the trails on our own which are truly well-marked. It is amazing to see the 5 waterfalls. Highly recommend it.
After seeing Tamarindo, Arenal, Manuel Antonio, this is the place to end your Costa Rican vacation.
