What else is there to say that the others haven't? This place is top notch! The hotel grounds are beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly. We stayed here on our honeymoon and so glad we did! The breakfast provided each morning is the best we've ever had at any hotel. The staff remembers your name each morning, which is... More

We stayed there for 3 days and it is one of the best properties in Costa Rica. Foliage is amazing,great rooms with your own Jacuzzi on the balcony,fantastic spa and temperature controlled swimming pool etc.Unbelievable view of the arenal volcano. Food could be better and book your activities like canyoning,sky tram,zip lining etc directly with the tour operators instead of... More

My wife and I stayed one night at Nayara during our Honeymoon. We were originally going to spend the entire Honeymoon on the beach in Guanacaste. However, we had friends that stayed at Nayara a few years ago and they insisted that we at least spend a night here. So, we did! The hotel is wonderful. The rooms were large... More

My family (2 adults and 2 kids, ages 12 and 15) had a wonderful visit to Nayara. The resort is absolutely gorgeous and the service is tops. The people were warm and friendly and the breakfast (which is included with your room) is fantastic. We stayed in the casita deluxe bungalow which were quite spacious, with 2 queen beds and... More

This review is difficult because I am not sure where to start. This is the best hotel my wife and I have ever stayed in. The service was incredible. The little things really mattered. For instance, the bartender (Jonathan) at the pool bar played our wedding song for us at the pool without our asking. Every time we returned from... More

This certainly lives up to the billing of being one of the most romantic hotels on the planet. The rooms are spacious, immaculate and thoughtful. We particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi and inside and outside showers. There are a variety of restaurants to go at on the complex, we enjoyed the sushi option in the evening and would recommend taking the... More

this was our first stop in our CR trip, and as honeymooners-this hotel was outstanding. The service (the maid put decorations out every single day on the bed), the volcano views from the patio, the jacuzzi-tub in the patio, outdoor showers, and the beauty is fabulous. The food was good too at their restaurants on property- breakfast and dinner. We... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said with the other 1900 plus reviewers? We decided to get married here after seeing what Nayara had to offer. I must have looked at their website 2-3 times a day for six months straight. I thought I had set my expectations so insanely high that the real thing would not live... More

This was the second stop on our honeymoon. We stayed here two nights and really wished we had been here longer. The rooms are incredible and had it not rained most of the time we would have likely see the volcano. The service/staff were great and very attentive to our needs. The staff seemed pretty focused on getting us to... More
