My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica and stayed at Nayara for 5 nights. The place is absolutely amazing! All the reviews of this place are fantastic and they are all spot on. We really enjoyed everything about this place. We loved the privacy of the patio. You can sip coffee on the private patio... More

We stayed at Nayara for four nights at Christmas time and were immediately able to relax and slip into the magical friendly feel of Costa Rica. The front desk staff greeted us with a glass of wine and gave us a wonderful introduction of the resort. Every morning we were greeted by name and asked about our plans for the... More

Stayed here for four nights recently and it was a great experience! Only problem when we got our room which we booked in 10 months prior for a king bed we were given two double beds! It was annoying especially since the staff didn't even give us a heads up and we were just taken to the room. This has... More

This was a resort type hotel seemingly designed for the American market, and families. The staff were very friendly (even the Macaw!) and helpful. We were concerned that our room might prove a bit noisy, but we were immediately offered another one with no questions asked - fantastic! The room, although a bit dark, could be hardly bettered, with almost... More

How impressive is it to have your own building in a tropical garden? The building includes your own hammock, table chairs and Jacuzzi on the deck attached to one side of the building. Walking around the well hidden units we saw a macaw and other interesting birds. We even had our own gecko on the ceiling. Staff are great, welcoming... More

We are currently spending our last day at Nayara and are going to be so sad to leave. The food is exceptional, as is service. We had the opportunity to see some other hotels in the area and know we were staying at the best one! I can honestly not think of anything negative to say!

My wife and I went to nayara on our honeymoon. I honestly cannot say enough about how amazing it is. We stayed in both a Casita Deluxe and a Nayara Suite. All rooms have a double-wide jacuzzi on the deck, with a view of Arenal volcano, and they are designed to feel separate from every other room. Try the avocado... More

Went with 5 other Guy friends over labor day week. We were told that we were not the "usual" clientele as this is a mainly a couples resort. Never the less, we were taken care of extremely well. We are a group of mid 20's young professionals with well paying jobs looking for a best in class experience. We were... More

I was super excited to stay at Naraya and even more disappointed to leave. The quality of service from the Nayara staff is exceptional. The Nayara suite exceeded my expectations and it was difficult to justify leaving the resort/our suite to do activities. Beautiful grounds that are well kept. Delicious food options. Very thoughtful resort with small luxuries that you... More
