Xandari - San Jose and Central Valley - Costa Rica


A friendly hotel with bright villas set within 40 acres of tropical gardens, with a spa, delicious Costa Rican cuisine and inspiring views over San José. Just a 20-minute drive from San José airport, you are driven up into the hills above the valley and up into another world: colorful modern architecture surrounded by exotic flowers.

Rooms are spacious but quite basic, with high ceilings and white walls with bright wall hangings that may not be to everyone’s taste. Each villa has its own specious balcony with loungers so that you can gaze out at the valley. There are 2.5 miles (4 kms) of walking trails to explore, with waterfalls and river views, or indulge in a massage.

Xandari is a lovely introduction to Costa Rica for both families and couples. Children of all ages are welcome.

Do be aware that there is no A/C in the rooms, and the nights can be noisy, with local dogs and other animals that can be noisy, so we recommend earplugs or a white noise device (you can download a white noise app on smartphones).
