I absolutely loved this place and every single employee. I wish I could give it another star. They thought of everything and I can't wait to go back. The warmest most welcoming check in I have ever experienced. They treat you like royalty. Welcome cocktail? Yes please! Ride up to your room and a little tour on the way. I've... More

My wife and I stayed here for four days celebrating our anniversary. The hotel staff went out of their way to make sure this was a memorable experience for us. Our first night at dinner they brought us an anniversary cake. This was a large cake that we were able to take back to our room and enjoy for the... More

Just returned from a trip to Costa Rica, and spent 4 days at Nayara. The landscaped grounds are magnificent. Each accommodation is a free standing Casita. The balcony looks towards the Arenal Volcana and had a hot tub and chairs. The front has a private patio with an outdoor shower. The extensive grounds have both a fish pond, and private... More

Wow, this is one lovely resort. Our room was HUGE, with an indoor shower, an outdoor shower, a large lovely bathroom and bedroom, and a gorgeous deck with a private jacuzzi. The shared pool is lovely, and they have 3 large public yet private feeling jacuzzis that are sheltered by foliage. Perfect spot to hang out with friends. The service... More

we went on our honeymoon and it was a taste of paradise. I couldn't say a bad word. Pool, spa, staff, restaurant, room was all amazing. I can't wait to go back and try their new suites. We stayed in one of the suites and would highly recommend.

We were really happy with the service at this hotel. The golf buggy ride to our room was fun! The room was spacious and clean, with a fabulous jacuzzi on the balcony which is great fun if you have a thunderstorm...the views are amazing. The only small improvement would be the food. The restaurants seem to focus on big portions,... More

We enjoyed Nayara immensely, with only one complaint. Ours was a family stay with three generations and despite the fact that Nayara is small, every one had fun. We stayed two nights and spent part of each day exploring the rainforest, Arenal National Park and the nearby Sky-Tram zipline facilities. Staff, food quality at the main restaurant and spa were...

This is probably one of the nicest hotels we have been to. We had the middle level room, the Nayara Suite, which was beautiful: private terrace with Jacuzzi, indoor and outdoor showers, and well stocked reasonably-price mini bar. The room service and housekeeping were great, leaving us towel animals like a cruise ship. Everyone at the property was amazing, and... More

My family stayed here last week for 4 nights (2 adults, 2 kids ages 13 and 15) and we cannot say enough fabulous things about our stay. Let me also preface this by saying when we travel like to stay in nice hotels (like the Four Seasons). From the moment we arrived which was super early - after a red... More

After flying from Boston to San Jose (with stop in Florida) and then being picked up at the airport and driven the almost two hours to Arenal, we were pretty tired upon arriving at Nayara. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful and we were welcomed very pleasantly with a cold drink. Check-in was a breeze, the bags were loaded... More
