So this year would be the third time we have begun and ended our Costa Rica vacation at Xandari. It is that perfect. I always phone reservations and speak with Lucy who handles the booking so efficiently and emails the confirmation. Seems like each time we get a different type of villa but honestly they are all private and the newer ones out by the sunset pool (21-27) are a bit of a walk from the restaurant but it is really nice out there. They all have extraordinary views. Highlights are the restaurant with very good food and service for all meals, the spa which has to be experienced to understand how good the therapists are and the beautiful open air huts( I highly recommend Vera and Mabel) . Xandari has been booking tours in the area and transfers within the country with Ruta Verde for many years. Both William and his father Don Jose are professional and love to share stories about their country with their passengers. I would recommend that if you need any transporation within Costa Rica you ask Xandari to book it with Ruta Verde. We hope to stay longer next time at Xandari and explore the area around the hotel with some of their tours . Alajuela has some of the nicest weather in the country. If you like to swim you will enjoy their pools which are just the right temperature and there are three of them. Even if the hotel is fully booked it feels like your own private paradise. I recommend taking some time to walk to the waterfalls...so peaceful and inspiring. I highly recommend a stay at this hotel...you won't want to leave. I tend to like to try new hotels and not just repeat the same ones but Xandari is the exception. There is sometime about this place that lures one back.
