I had my doubt initially, as during the booking process, I kind of got the feeling that the resort is adult only and targeted to honeymooners from some hints of the front desk. We are going there to celebrate my birthday and we have our three year old son with us. We couldn't book into the Spring Villa which is... More

My now fiance and I went to Costa Rica the first week of September and had an amazing time. One of our stays was at Hotel Nayara and we were just in awe of the hotel and the amenities available to us. The experience was unbelievable. The restaurant was also an awesome experience with great food, entertainment, and an amazing... More

This is a wonderful property, private and serene! Great options for activities in the area, and only 10 minutes from the nearest town. The staff are absolutely top notch! My only complaint is that renovation began during my stay (which I was only advised of the night before it began).

This place is great. We had a suite and it was more space than needed but was greatly appreciated when we had to dry our wet clothes. Suite has good furnishings and our deck had a wonderful view of the Volcano (and we had several clear views during our stay—though the hotel can’t control that). Not used to being treated... More

I have no words to describe our stay at Nayara for our honeymoon. I had HUGE expectations coming here just from reading all of the reviews on trip advisor, so I was nervous when we arrived that it wouldn't own up to what I made it out to be in my head. This resort BLEW MY MIND. It is the... More

Lovely ambience and service. Great amenities. Wish we had been able to stay longer. So pretty and tastefully designed to fit in with the surroundings. Cannot think of anything to say other than the fact that it was the perfect spot for us! We had high expectations - having read reviews and they were met!! If we return to La... More

Firstly and importantly - every single member of staff we encountered is an absolute credit to this hotel. We travel regularly and I have to say this is the best service we have ever had in a resort hotel. From the minute we arrived to the moment we left we felt welcome, safe and valued. Every single member of staff... More

My husband book this hotel for part of our 8 day vacation. We stayed 4 nights and it was amazing. It was as if we had the resort to ourselves! The staff goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect and if there is a problem it is corrected immediately and made up for with goodies! I especially... More

We saw this hotel on TripAdvisor and mentioned to a friend who had been to Costa Rica that we were planning on staying here. They had visited at well and told us they weren't that impressed. It broke my heart because I was set on staying at Nayara. After some discussion we decided to go anyway based on the rave... More
