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

Most likely the best hotel we've ever stayed at; just wonderful!!! The view of the volcano from our casita, the sounds of the rainforest, the beautiful hotel grounds and the services offered... couldn't have been better. Not cheap but totally worth the splurge. If we ever go back to Arenal, will definitely stay here again.

After having read so many reviews about Nayara singing its' praise, our expectations were pretty high. After a week there we can honestly say it is better than we expected. We were visiting Arenal for our honeymoon and spent the whole trip at Nayara and were so happy that we did. It was an absolutely beautiful hotel. We were amazed... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel September 7 - 11. I have never experienced the friendliness of the staff of any other hotel we have ever stayed. The suite with whirlpool tub on balcony and hammock was wonderful. Food was awesome! Very reasonable prices on drinks. Gardens and pool are gorgeous. Would never stay... More

My wife and I spent part of our honeymoon there in August and we were blown away by this hotel. The grounds are perfectly manicured but also keep the feel that you are still in the rainforest. We stayed in a suite and I remember how overwhelmed we were when we saw the quality of the room and the level... More

This hotel is a boutique hotel with over the top food and service . Attention to detail and creative housekeeping staff! They make animals out of your towels and put a rose either on the top of their heads or in their pretend pawl ! Amazingly beautiful as well with the nicest people!!!

It really doesn't get any better than Nayara! We stayed in Casita 4 and our room looked just like the pictures. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I have never received such a high level of service. We recived welcome drinks and refreshing towels while we checked in. The check in process was quick and were able to schedule... More

My husband and I spent a part of our Honeymoon at the Nayara. The food and service was impeccable not one bad thing to say. The view from the resort was breathtaking. It was absolutely romantic. Every thing was always so clean and the staff there you could tell took pride in working for the company.
