This was the final stop on our two week Honeymoon in Costa Rica. We had booked 3 nights in a Casita Suite which meant we would have an outdoor shower, jacuzzi tub and views of the Arenal Volcano. We did feel as though we saved the best for last, yet at the same time couldn't help but compare to our... More

The grounds of this resort are beautiful and the service is amazing. We stayed a few nights in a casita, which had a great view of Arenal. The Casita was very large and had an amazing outdoor shower and hot tub. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food at the hotel was delicious. We would stay here again... More

We stayed with another family, for 3 nights in early July. We were 3 adults with 5 children ages 9-14. We had some anxiety regarding staying at what would be considered a honeymoon destination with children but our concerns were quickly put to rest. As most people have already stated in their reviews, this is a beautiful, paradise like setting.... More

We just returned from 5 nights at the Nayara. We were with another couple celebrating our 40th birthdays- leaving the kids at home. The grounds of the property were green, clean, and gorgeous. Our cabana was extremely modern with a double headed indoor shower, 2 sinks, amazing outdoor shower, and a porch with a jacuzzi and chairs. The water pressure... More

We had a two night stay here on our Costa Rican holiday. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty! The room was very nice,unfortunately we didn't have a view, just a high screen of plants, we asked if there was a room with volcano view available but there wasn't. As it happened it rained most of the time... More

We just left this amazing hotel. The service is so amazing: They are on it 1000% and very nice. It is not cheap by any means, but it is worth every penny. The rooms are beautiful, the food was great. It has the WOW factor over and over. The infinity outdoor Jacuzzi as a part of your room, the dual... More

This place is beautiful. Bright flowers and green foliage surround the outside of your room. You can see the top of the volcano and hear monkeys from the trees. It is breathtaking. The staff is very friendly and clean. Every time we came back from an outing our room was clean and bed decorated with towel animals.

I just came back from my trip and I absolutely love this hotel. We got the suite and it was fabulous. The room was so spacious and clean and we had the perfect view of the volcano. We were so lucky to be able to see the volcano from our room the second day and it was sooo beautiful. It's... More

Although it rained almost 24 hrs a day while we were there, we loved this hotel. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff is so friendly and the food is so delicious. The Peruvian cerviche was the best and we loved the guitarist at the dinners. The rain did not stop us from going on excursions like zip lining, coffee plantation... More

All the good bits everyone has already mentioned and they are spectacularly good. Best shower of any hotel. ( I have had to agree to redo our bathroom at home). I loved the wooden jacuzis surrounded by tropical plants down near the pool. Great to have reasonable priced restaurants in a top end hotel - and free international phone calls... More
