My husband found this resort on Trip Advisor since we were originally looking at other countries for our honeymoon. I am so glad we listened to the other reviews and chose this resort. From the moment they picked us up at the airport, to our return a week later, everything was perfect. The staff are so friendly and helpful that... More

This is a lovely place to be. We spent 3 nights on our tour of Costa Rica. I suppose it is unfortunate that the hotel sits on the cloudy side of the volcano. There are great views if you get a clear day but the vast number of rain umbrellas dotted around the hotel indicate that clear days are few... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel and had a great time! From the moment of the check-in until our check-out the staff was very friendly and treated us with an honest smile. They all seemed to enjoy working there, which is always a good sign! We had one of the Casittas with view of the Volcano. Loved the... More

Spent three nights at this wonderful Hotel. Great location with a view of the Arenal volcano. Superb landscaping with peaceful surroundings. Service was impeccable. Good food at Amor Loco restaurant on site. A minor negative was the buffet breakfast -guess got too comfortable with service otherwise, so getting up to get own breakfast so a bit incongruous! Lots of honeymooners.... More

I was looking for something in Costa Rica that would provide an even bigger "wow" experience to surprise my spouse. My agent told me about Nayara Hotel where she was married. That was a HUGE endorsement in my book. I wanted to stay in the exact spot where my agent choose to go for her most important day. Upon arrival... More

We booked this trip as part of a package arranged by Imagine Latin America. It is the fourth time that we have used them and once again we were not disappointed. We arrived at the hotel way before check in time but this was not an issue. We had a deluxe casita room which was huge. The bed was really... More

Perfection! There was no detail left untouched, they thought of everything! Great food , service and crazy weather. Went to hanging bridges with my fiancé and our tour guide Ana. She was so informative on all the different species. Defiantly do this tour. Rent a car and have fun.

Maybe the best hotel in Costa Rica- lovely rooms, beautiful grounds, good food, and close to many great outings . Also a good place just to relax, enjoy the hotel facilities, be pampered, and admire the marvellous view of the volcano- on a clear day....

My husband and I stayed at here for our 22d anniversary. We've had some amazing anniversary trips in the past to Michelin rated Inns and restaurants, but the trip to Nayara Hotel was incomparable! I felt like I was on my honeymoon again (but more upscale- we can afford better now). The grounds are secluded, romantic, pristine & picturesque. The... More

We recently stayed at Nayara, in a suite, and it was amazing. The room was large and had everything we needed. We visited Costa Rica for a unique birding experience and we didn't want to rough it. There is no roughing it at Nayara. The Nayara staff are happy to help with planning all tours, they would even pack you... More
