I can not wait to go back. I love this hotel! The pictures on the web sight do not do it justice. The rooms were clean and beautiful. We got room 22. That was the jackpot! Breakfast is included and was great, the service great. The staff was helpful friendly and the grounds are kept up perfectly. Do not stay... More

We came to Nayara for our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience. It was our first time in Costa Rica and Nayara was our first stop. The level of service was unparalleled. The staff is friendly without being overbearing and ready to assist with anything you might need. The beauty of the casitas nestled in the gardens was awesome.... More

One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The rooms are beautiful. Very clean and spacious. We had a balcony with a hammock and I sat out there every day. It was so quiet and peaceful. We ate at the sushi bar twice. The food was incredible. We ate at the other fine dining restaurant which was 5... More

The grounds and room are immaculate. The service a true cut above. We wish we had come here on our honeymoon. During rainy season the area gets a lot of rain, but it's really relaxing and peaceful. The area has a ton of activities and the hotel helps with coordination.

Luxurious room, attentive staff, and close to many wonderful sights and activities. If you're feeling adventurous, I recommend cerro chato from the green lagoon entrance. Many wonderful close eating establishments.

There is a shortage of words to describe the pure relaxation, beauty, and service that is Nayara. We stayed here for the first 4 nights of our honeymoon, and could not have been more impressed. We arrived at SJO and had pre-arranged a ride to the hotel. We were met just outside customs and from then until our last moment... More

This hotel near the Arenal Volcano was a royal experience. From the moment we stepped out of the car and onto the steps of the hotel, we could tell we would have a 5-star experience. The service was incredibly hospitable and helpful. The room, grounds, and restaurants were beautifully designed and maintained. The front desk helped us plan all our... More

From the moment we arrived to the resort, to the moment we left, we had a truly extraordinary overall experience. Traveling with my partner and four other close friends, and staying at Nayara for five nights, our experience was paralleled by no other ever. The property itself is nestled away from the main road, and even tucked away from the... More

This is the most incredible & attentive place you will ever stay. Food, drinks, service, views, rooms....there is not a single thing I could change! The only thing that could have made this any better was another week!

My husband and I stayed in a casita deluxe room for 5 nights as part of our wedding anniversary vacation. The staff was courteous and engaging, the hotel grounds are absolutely stunning, and the food at each restaurant was delicious. The sounds of the rain forest led to the best sleep we've had in years - like a built in... More
