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

I'm not sure I am eloquent enough to give this place its due. This is how I describe it to people: it's the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. Not "nice" in the Four Seasons kind of nice, just nice in that absolutely everything was of the highest quality, and everything is catered to guest and the beauty of... More

Our honeymoon experience at Nayara was everything we expected and wanted, and more. The staff is doting, the property is gorgeous, the food is fantastic. Our room was super clean and incredibly comfortable. Definitely check out the spa (for couples treatments, try booking with the spa on the Nayara Springs side of the property, in the treatment bungalows, which was... More

My husband and I just finished staying here for 5 nights. We both really enjoyed our stay despite the weather (had LOTS of rain). We had one of the casitas. The veranda is very private, the rooms very clean and comfortable. Loved the outdoor shower in the morning. All of the staff are so nice and really do their best... More

My wife and I just returned from our Honeymoon to Costa Rica. We spent half the time in Tamarindo and the 2nd half in Arenal at Nayara. The ONLY thing we would change about our trip would be doing Arenal first and Tamarindo 2nd. Being from Wisconsin, you can probably understand we would have liked the sun on the back... More

We stayed at Nayara for three nights to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We were very pleased with what the hotel had to offer. You don't really have to leave the property if you do not want to as they have all you need in there. The staff is welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We ate at all restaurants and enjoyed...

This place is absolutely amazing. My newlywed wife and I visited Nayara for 3 nights and 4 days the last week of November, ending the wet season and entering into the dry season. We were on our honeymoon and couldn't have picked a better place. I will say this place is definitely set for adults. We did see one family... More

We cannot say enough good things about this resort and the people working there. We were married at the resort the week of Thanksgiving. Many thanks to Deybis who was so patient through the event. The wedding was wonderful and he worked hard to make it special for us. We stayed in the Nayara Suite which was amazing. It is... More

Staff is so helpful and generous. The room is immaculate and absolutely stunning. I would LOVE to go back and stay longer. If you go to Arenal you HAVE to stay here :) They cater to your every need. It was our anniversary and they filled the bed with rose pedals and made it extra special. The only negative is... More

This was our first stop on a two week adventure in Costa Rica and what a start! After a long day of travel to get here, our stress levels immediately dropped as we checked in. The entire staff was as friendly and helpful as any we have met while traveling around the world. This is a large resort but seems... More
