Best ever. The location, service, cleanliness, experience, the views, excursions, staff were all amazing. This hotel has set the bar for every other hotel. This is a MUST!!! Even though it's a little far from the airport, the drive is beautiful and worth it.

We had a positive experience from the moment we contacted the hotel to plan our Costa Rican family trip. Carlos in reservations was responsive and prompt. Our transfer driver Geovanny was professional, knowledgeable and pleasant and made our 3 hour drive to Nayara a joy. The arrival was even better, the staff is engaging and informative. Ever checked us in... More

We stayed in one of the Casita's de luxe and we're very impressed with the room. You have full privacy and taking a shower or a bath outside is just a great experience. The respect for the nature is present everywhere. The spa rooms have full view of the jungle and are very luxurious. The massage was top class too.... More

My wife and I recently returned from a week-long stay at Nayara. Its sterling reputation is well-deserved. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are excellent, and the staff, without exception, was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. They went above and beyond the level of service expected. Should we ever make it back to the La Fortuna area (and we hope to... More

This was a beautiful hotel. The individual bungalow rooms are beautiful and so peaceful. Every night you would fall asleep to animal noises and the soothing sounds of nature. The staff at this hotel is what makes this place amazing. They were so attentive from the second we arrived, to even after we had checked out. We arrived and had... More

This was the final stop on our two week Honeymoon in Costa Rica. We had booked 3 nights in a Casita Suite which meant we would have an outdoor shower, jacuzzi tub and views of the Arenal Volcano. We did feel as though we saved the best for last, yet at the same time couldn't help but compare to our... More

The grounds of this resort are beautiful and the service is amazing. We stayed a few nights in a casita, which had a great view of Arenal. The Casita was very large and had an amazing outdoor shower and hot tub. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food at the hotel was delicious. We would stay here again... More

We stayed with another family, for 3 nights in early July. We were 3 adults with 5 children ages 9-14. We had some anxiety regarding staying at what would be considered a honeymoon destination with children but our concerns were quickly put to rest. As most people have already stated in their reviews, this is a beautiful, paradise like setting.... More

We just returned from 5 nights at the Nayara. We were with another couple celebrating our 40th birthdays- leaving the kids at home. The grounds of the property were green, clean, and gorgeous. Our cabana was extremely modern with a double headed indoor shower, 2 sinks, amazing outdoor shower, and a porch with a jacuzzi and chairs. The water pressure... More
