We returned to Nayara in July for our anniversary and this property and its staff, once again, did not disappoint. It was sheer heaven from the moment we arrived and saw our Nayara Suite to the moment we left and the gracious hotelier Angelo saw us off. The upgraded property (with the addition of Nayara Springs adjacent) was a wonderful... More

Ran late to couples spa appointment in Costa Rica. They were very gracious about the delay. Everyone was extremely helpful from start to finish. The message being done open air in the rainforest is unforgettable. Not much else to say. Worth every penny.

We had just stayed at Poas for a couple of days when we first came to Arenal. Because we booked through an agency, we didn't know in what kind of hotel we were going to end up. It was quite overwhelming when we arrived, tired and sweaty from traveling we arrived in the late afternoon. Just as we pulled up,... More

The Nayara Hotel is probably the best hotel i've ever been too! the service was good but the best things were the hotel rooms which were little huts with showers, tvs and very nice beds! The pool was incredible with a bar in the water where you can order food and drinks, and there were only two things that i... More

My husband and I began our honeymoon here and it was the best experience of our lives. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by name and were offered a cocktail (much needed after a long day of flights and car rides). We were then shown around by way of golf cart to where the different activites offered at the... More
