"Beautiful welcoming oasis with kind, caring staff"
Xandari was the perfect place to spend our last day, morning in Costa Rica. Close enough to SJO airport that you can enjoy at least some of the many opportunities and experiences offered at this stunning nature reserve. Very welcoming, caring and helpful staff, the hike to the closest waterfall was fun and easy and we very much enjoyed the sunset pool, dinner and "welcome to paradise" spa package. If you are a light sleeper, I recommend asking for a room further away from the kitchen, but even being very close, we still got a good night of sleep. Stunning views and I would surely come back again.

My girlfriend and I planned a relaxing week in Costa Rica well in advance and originally selected accommodation at a different location. We received notification 3 weeks before our travel to Costa Rica that our original hotel selection was cancelled by the hotel which required that we make last-minute plans concerning our lodging. We stumbled upon Asclepios and booked out 6 nights there.
We were greeted on the day of our reservation by welcoming staff and superb service. The staff were friendly, accommodating, and always willing to ensure that we were looked after.
We stayed in the "Aphrodite" room during the entire duration of our reservation and we took advantage of the turkish bath, floatation therapy, and sauna services.
Given the 'wellness' nature of the retreat it wasn't surprising that coffee, soda, and alcohol options are either limited or non-existent and we did not mind much.
When I travel to Costa Rica again I will elect to stay once more at Asclepios; the stay was very much enjoyable.
Everything was great with the Pure Vida Spa and Yoga Retreat. The one big problem is that if a person goes on their website it says all meals are included. But, if you book through EXPEDIA the meals are not included and you will receive a whooping extra charge per meal eaten there. Be ready to pay more than expected.
The view is great and there is a very nice coffee field right across from the property which made for a very senic run and walk.
We stayed twice at this hotel, and both times we really enjoyed the beautiful spacious rooms with lovely balconies to relax on. We even braved the pool despite the cold temperatures! The owners are helpful and friendly, and the large garden area is a great place to explore with small children.
Our first night in CR began wonderfully. Staying at the Hotel Robeldal was a perfect choice. Although we were only staying one night, the surroundings made you want to stay longer. We arrived quite late but were met and guided to our rooms. A hot breakfast the next morning on an outside veranda was perfect. Since we were leaving for the western coast the waiter wrote several suggestions down for us to consider during our stay in his country. By the way, Elmanuel, the Crocodile Man WAS great. Thanks. We would have missed him. If ever we venture back to Costa Rica we'll be staying with you again. :-)

The city of Alajuela is in Alajuela province, 20 km (13 mi) northwest of San Jose and just 3 km (2 mi) north of Juan Santamaria International Airport. Many visitors to Costa Rica stay here on their way in and out the country. Colonial architecture is still evident in the city center. The central market, covering an entire city block, is a great place to buy souvenirs.
