Just got back from an entire week at Nayara and the experience was wonderful. The staff truly goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, the rooms are spacious and very clean. We loved the view of the volcano from our room as well as the Jacuzzi on the terrace and the outdoor shower. The restaurants were wonderful... More

Nayara is an incredibly special place. The property is lush and secluded, the rooms are spacious and private, and the service is wonderfully attentive. But above all, it is a perfect place for romance. If you and your significant other need a place to get away and reconnect, Nayara is the place to do just that. Even though it is... More

If 6 stars were an option, Nayara would receive them....plus some! Truly the most delightful place we have ever stayed, and we've traveled to quite a few countries, staying in some lovely accommodations. But Nayara is so special, from the moment you arrive and are greeted with a delicious fruity drink, to the excellent and friendly service everywhere, to the... More

We went for 4 nights as the first part of our honeymoon. We were there just this past June 18-22. The service is top notch, I've yet to experience anywhere better. There was never a time when you encountered an unfriendly staff. Even if they didn't speak english, they did not shy away from you or make you uncomfortable. It... More

If you are looking for the perfect hotel experience in the perfect setting with the perfect staff you have found the right place. I have never and probably will never again stay at such a wonderful place. I took pictures to go along with our stay of course but I don't need to post them here, because they look just... More

We recently came back to the states after 6 nights at Nayara, and boy was it hard to come home. The whole experience was nearly perfect in every way. A friendly, attentive staff who were genuine and eager to please. Amazing food - including a spectacular daily breakfast with local fare... I couldn't have asked for more. I'm not sure... More

We spent 5 days here at the start of July for our honeymoon our bed was decorated with rose petals and our room came with a free bottle of champagne. The staff was some of the nicest people I have truly ever met. The sushi bar was some of the most amazing sushi we have ever had! I highly recommend... More

My husband and I stayed at Nayara during our honeymoon in October. It was absolutely perfect. I could go on for days about how perfect our stay was. The staff was so friendly, the grounds were stunning--like being in tropical paradise, the private casita was BEAUTIFUL and immaculately clean, and the food was delicious, with varied options including local flavor...

My husband and I came to Nayara for our Honeymoon, and it was the trip of a lifetime. We stayed at Nayara for 6 days 5 nights and without a doubt we give this resort 5 starts! We stayed in the Nayara Suite, which feels like a personal little Villa. They design it to feel secluded from other rooms by... More

Our stay at Nayara was great. It was our second stop in Costa Rica for our honeymoon and we had booked the romance in paradise package which arranged most of our meals and activities we simply scheduled them on arrival. The Casita is incredible really enjoyed the outdoor shower. Our room, 42, did not have a view of the volcano... More
