Xandari is awesome. Beautiful, clean, spacious rooms where every comfort has been anticipated and delivered. We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of our 10 day trip in Costa Rica. The food was very good with friendly service (especially Marco) and the restaurant was so comfortable, relaxed and in a lovely setting - we were happy t to linger over our meal (we ate 3 breakfasts and 3 dinners at Xandari). We used the front desk service to plan two day outings (although the trails, flowers, pools and artwork on the property are so extensive you could happily spend the whole time exploring the property). On both of our day trips our driver was William. Not only did he do an expert job of navigating the tricky Costa Rica roads, but he also was a terrific ambassador for his country, sharing with us interesting facts and discussions about Costa Rica ranging from history, to current events, politics, wildlife, nature, and food preparation. What a treat for us. Our first day trip was to La Paz and Volcan Poas (both worthwhile stops), and our second trip was to the Tirimbina Biological Reserve. At Tirimbina there were no Naturalists available to give us a tour, so William offered to accompany us and shared with us a wealth of information about the flora and fauna at the reserve. The drive through Braulio Carrillo park on the way back was breathtaking. William spotted some toucans and howler monkeys along the way and stopped so we could get photos.
You cant go wrong booking a stay at Xandari - next time we plan to visit both the Alajuela and Pacific Coast Xandari resorts. Enjoy!
