5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

From the beginning till the end, the Nayara hotel was a smashing experience. Very friendly, professional and helpfull staff. Beautifull rooms, great beds, private jaccuzi, silent airco, wifi, stuffed mini-bar and above all very clean with soft quality towels. This resort is built inside the tropic woods surrounded the Arenal vulcano, but with the greatest respect for the ecological system.... More

This hotel was incredible! We loved every minute spent here and wish that we could have extended our stay. The service, food, room, cleanliness and views were all excellent. We loved the breakfast that was provided every morning as well as the Wine Bar. Their happy hour at the swim up bar was fun and the adult pool is a... More

Just got back from an entire week at Nayara and the experience was wonderful. The staff truly goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, the rooms are spacious and very clean. We loved the view of the volcano from our room as well as the Jacuzzi on the terrace and the outdoor shower. The restaurants were wonderful... More

Nayara is an incredibly special place. The property is lush and secluded, the rooms are spacious and private, and the service is wonderfully attentive. But above all, it is a perfect place for romance. If you and your significant other need a place to get away and reconnect, Nayara is the place to do just that. Even though it is... More

If 6 stars were an option, Nayara would receive them....plus some! Truly the most delightful place we have ever stayed, and we've traveled to quite a few countries, staying in some lovely accommodations. But Nayara is so special, from the moment you arrive and are greeted with a delicious fruity drink, to the excellent and friendly service everywhere, to the... More

We went for 4 nights as the first part of our honeymoon. We were there just this past June 18-22. The service is top notch, I've yet to experience anywhere better. There was never a time when you encountered an unfriendly staff. Even if they didn't speak english, they did not shy away from you or make you uncomfortable. It... More

I have never and probably will never again stay at such a wonderful place. I took pictures to go along with our stay of course but I don't need to post them here, because they look just... More

We recently came back to the states after 6 nights at Nayara, and boy was it hard to come home. The whole experience was nearly perfect in every way. A friendly, attentive staff who were genuine and eager to please. Amazing food - including a spectacular daily breakfast with local fare... I couldn't have asked for more. I'm not sure... More

We spent 5 days here at the start of July for our honeymoon our bed was decorated with rose petals and our room came with a free bottle of champagne. The staff was some of the nicest people I have truly ever met. The sushi bar was some of the most amazing sushi we have ever had! I highly recommend... More

My husband and I stayed at Nayara during our honeymoon in October. It was absolutely perfect. I could go on for days about how perfect our stay was. The staff was so friendly, the grounds were stunning--like being in tropical paradise, the private casita was BEAUTIFUL and immaculately clean, and the food was delicious, with varied options including local flavor...
