LOVE this place!!!! We stayed at Nayara for 4 nights in one of the Suites (room 36) and we had the most fantastic time. I only wish we have stayed longer!! From the gorgeous room, to the beautiful surroundings....everything was perfect. The swimming pool was under construction, it didn't cause us any disturbance what so ever. We were more than... More

Stayed here back in May 2014 as part of our honeymoon. I think everything great has been said by other reviewers. Just wanted to add that the service was really 5 stars and we had a great time. The private Jacuzzi on the balcony was awesome and the size of the room is bigger than some apartments in NYC! Only... More

This place does not disappoint--absolutely beautiful rooms and the grounds are your own piece of rainforest paradise. Food was surprisingly delicious. Staff was wonderful. Our room had an amazing volcano view. Ideal for a romantic celebration--even in the green season! Would love to return the next time I come to Costa Rica!

We absolutely loved the Nayara Hotel. My fiancé and I were able to stay at the end of September so the resort was empty. We were told there were only 16 villas occupied out of the 60+ when we got there. We stayed in the Nayara suite and it was amazing with the balcony, double indoor/outdoor showers and just the...

This resort is top notch! The beautiful surroundings, coupled with the excellent service made this one of the best vacation experiences I've had. The staff is super friendly and accomodating, the onsite restaurants have a diverse menu and the spa was divine. The main swimming pool was under construction during our stay and IF I had stayed there with kids,... More

First, this was probably the best service we've ever received at a hotel. The staff was amazing- they looked after every detail without being pushy or overbearing. Everyone greeted us by name and went to great lengths to ensure we had everything we needed. I really can't say enough about the staff - they were fantastic. The rooms are beautiful.... More

This is an exceptionally beautiful place to stay and we loved having our own casita. The outdoor spa tub, hammocks and chairs were especially welcoming. The staff are wonderful and everything is immaculately cared for. Lindsay really made our trip! She had great suggestions and was super friendly and helpful. My only gripe is that, being the low season, it's... More
