Set out driving with my boyfriend without any real destination. It started pouring. And I mean rain forest pouring. We suddenly saw a sign that said Xandari hotel and it was raining so much we could barely drive so we decided to look for the hotel and spend the night.
Never did we imagine finding such an amazing place in the middle of nowhere.
We didnt have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us in a very nice room. Room was spacious and decorations was incredible.
Bathroom was semi-open and just amazing.

Dinner was pretty good, and then we sat around the TV area in the main room with other guests for a while.

We had an early breakfast surprised by the amazing view and numerous birds that came close to us.
As trip was not planned I wasn't dressed for the occasion but the grounds seemed so pretty we went on several barefoot walks .

Afterwards we sat on the room terrace and relaxed for a while.

Only thing he missed (I did not to be honest) was an in-room TV.

We definitely plan to go back with proper shoes and clothes to go hiking and swimming.

Just spent two wonderful nights at Xandari to wrap up a 10 day Costa Rica vacation. Xandari is a gem nestled in the mountains above San Jose, with beautiful grounds that contain an exceptional diversity of plant life. Its tranquil gardens, homemade food, and kind staff made our stay truly memorable. Hats off to Matilde, Diana, and Alexander, who are a joy in the main restaurant, as well as to Conrad who is a master of massage at the spa. Highly recommend Xandari for persons who enjoy a laid back, artsy, and personalized vibe without the superficial flashiness.

We stayed in a very well kept nicely appointed spacy studio with an amazing view all over San Jose. Staff is very friendly and the whole place has a bit of a cosy eco atmosphere. Food is nice. The real added value is the botanical gardens with waterfalls and all.

We stayed one night at Xandari during a recent trip to Cost Rica. We were quite impressed by the property and how the owners had put in great effort to reforest the land with native plants to recreate the biodiversity. In fact I did a birding trip while there and saw 34 species of birds. I commend the owners for doing a great job of preserving and restoring the natural landscape. The rooms were quite large and luxurious (we stayed in one of the villas) and the views from the balcony was just amazing. We had hummingbirds, blue-gray tanagers and several other birds right outside our room. The staff was very friendly and we were offered complimentary beverages as well as given great customer service. We also liked the food. Overall I would greatly recommend the lodge. I would also recommend Jose who was my birding guide at the lodge for his great talent for locating birds.

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica and I wish we had more time to just sit and enjoy this hotel and we don't usually like to just sit in a hotel. We were greeted with fresh fruit drinks and then escorted to our room. We were given an upgrade to the ultra room. They are free standing bungalow type rooms. I loved the artists touch to this property and the vibrant colors. The rooms were huge, clean and very comfortable. The showers are situated in such a way that they are indoors but surrounded by windows with views to the lush jungle and scenery yet still very private. The view looking out over San Jose was just wonderfully beautiful!!! And there was a palapa type umbrella on our private outdoor porch and sitting area. It was all so comfortable and beautiful. I would definitely stay here again when we return! We had a very early flight the next morning so the staff hooked us up with a pre packaged breakfast with fruit, yogurt, muffins and juices. That was very thoughtful and helpful!
