Sometimes, it is better to go in with lower expectations and be pleasantly surprised. When a hotel has almost all 5 star reviews, that raises the bar and the expectation is very high. Like many others, I spend a lot of time reading TA reviews before booking a hotel, and that is how I made the decision to stay at... More

Visited here in August, and it was one of the best trips of my life. We stayed during their "Green Season" and had a significant discount on our stay. The hotel makes it easy to do any activity you can think to do in Costa Rica. They picked us up in a nice SUV from the airport, with Wifi! Our... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and never wanted to leave. We visited Tamarindo beach prior to coming here for our second part of the vacation, and we immediately wished we would have been here the entire time. We were greeted with a complimentary drink and cool towel as we walked in. Words cannot explain how beautiful the resort is,... More

We loved the Nayara. The place is wonderful with beautiful grounds, great food, and great staff! Easy to get tours for the volcano and hanging bridges. We had great food at the Nayara's restaurants! Loved it and hope to go back someday!

This is a wonderful hotel and a great value. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Our cacita was big and comfortable, a view of the volcano and we enjoyed the outside shower, never using in inside one. The pool was not large, but big enough and the drinks and food at the swim up bar were great. We ate... More

You just have to see it to believe it! We stayed in the Springs annex of the hotel. However, the beautiful grounds, the well-appointed rooms with your own infinity hot bath outside on your patio! An outdoor shower...for 2! Pools are tucked away in many places and the whole atmosphere is so calming. Because it is "hilly" there are many... More

I chose this resort for my honeymoon, and it exceeded my expectations! My wife loved everything, and I'd highly recommend it for other honeymooners. The whole resort feels like a rainforest, as each suite is surrounded by dense vegetation. The resort is peaceful, and is VERY well maintained. Lots of wildlife, and beautiful views of the volcano! Also, both my... More

From the moment you are greeted at reception you know that the staff is there for you. The entire staff greets you by name wherever you are. Alexander delivered us to our room while giving us a guided tour of the many amenities the hotel had to offer. Lindsey at the reception was full of information and a delight to... More

My new wife and I stayed at Nayara for our 6-day honeymoon. Every single element of our stay was spectacular, from the local beer on arrival to the staff's hospitality to the food to the ambiance. Honestly, if I were to list each thing about Nayara that impressed me, this review would go on forever. Here's a short list of... More
