We just loved this hotel. Jose in sushi amor is a great sushi chef, I would like To take him to dominicana with us. I highly recommend this place. The restaurant have a theme every night, and sushi amor is the best overall.

This was the perfect hotel to start our honeymoon. Beautiful grounds, attentive and friendly staff, clean/comfortable/luxurious room. Very private, quiet and romantic. Viewed numerous birds and they have a resident sloth, "Tony". Breakfast was awesome- great selection! We took advantage of the complimentary yoga. The pool was beautiful. Would highly recommend a romantic dinner at Amor Loco- this was the... More

This was our first hotel in Costa Rica during our ten day trip. Needless to say we didn't want to leave for the next one. The grounds are beautiful, peaceful, in touch with nature, and overall romantic. Restaurants are quiet and the food was excellent! Who wouldn't want a view of the volcano everyday? I can't say enough wonderful things... More

We absolutely loved Nayara! From the moment we arrived everyone was super nice and friendly. We were always greeted and asked about our plans for the day or how our day was when we came back from our tours. They made sure we had water and ponchos before we left on our tours too. Our room (casita deluxe 4) was... More

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!
