Tranquil resort set within a working coffee plantation, offering the allure of the Costa Rican countryside with the convenience of proximity to the airport.

Costa Rica is famous for its coffee and enchanting countryside, so where better to appreciate its bucolic charm than the cheerful Xandari Resort set within the beautiful gardens of a working coffee plantation. The pleasures of this rural setting come without sacrificing convenience: San José airport is just a 20-minute drive away, making this a perfect base for those wishing to avoid a stay in the chaotic capital.
The resort has won several awards including one for its architecture. Each of its cluster of villas has its own private terrace and is boldly decorated, with an emphasis on bright and cheerful colours that reflect the country's tropical character.

Xandari also makes the most of its charming countryside location with huge valley views from the restaurant and a number of walking trails within the grounds, including one to a picturesque waterfall. The weather can be particularly agreeable in this part of the country so you may well want to spend most of your time outside enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

    HB, Chichester
  • "Would have liked to spend longer there. Arrived at 3pm after lunch had finished, having had breakfast at 7pm in order that luggage could be collected from La Leona at that time, although our taxi(at the other end of the walk was not until 11.15am. It would have helped to know that they have an all day snack menu. Beautiful gardens with lovely trails to waterfalls. (Again quite steep ascents and descents)."

    JW, Northwood
  • Fantastic food

    SM, Knaresborough
  • "Superb venue for first stop. Only disappointed that we did not have time there on arrival day as we had a late flight in. All staff were lovely!"

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

This is a fantastic location for a couple of days either at the beginning or end of a trip to Costa Rica. The rooms are really spacious, the views across the valley are stunning and it’s great just to relax in the infinity pool or walk some of the trails around the property. I was especially impressed with the food, delicious, local cuisine done to a high standard.
