Stayed 2 nights would have stayed longer had I known this resort was so nice, the resort was very nice and relatively close to the city. My wife and I stayed here as a part of our 7 night stay in Costa Rica.

Our check-in was flawless and included a welcome beverage, afterwich we were ushered to our Casita Deluxe, located near the Altamira... More

I agree with the reviews praising Nayara. To the guy who complained that nothing dries, welcome to the Rainforest. The staff was happy to toss some stuff on the dryer for me at no charge. (It poured all 3 days we stayed there). Food in sushi bar is better than other food we had in CR. Innovative and tasty. Our... More

I do not need to reinvent the wheel about the Nayara in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. It is a beautiful resort located smack in the rain forest. The food is tops and, at $328 a night during the beginning of the high season and in the smaller Casitas rather than the Villas it represents good value. However, management seems to... More

We stayed here in December and had a wonderful time. The hotel staff is great and just want to make tourists happy. All the restaurant food is excellent and the local dishes are great. Ask for CHRISTIAN to be your waiter! Have a great time.

My husband and I recently stayed at Nayara for 3 nights to start our vacation in Costa Rica. We had a beautiful view of the volcano (the two times it decided to show from behind the clouds), and despite a little rain every day, had a wonderful time at the hotel. We did a lot of adventure activities while we... More
