My husband and I stayed at this hotel for the first part of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! This was by far the best place we have ever stayed. The setting is so beautiful and romantic! We stayed in a Nayara Suite and I would highly recommend splurging on this room type. It has a rustic feeling, being... More

We spent some nights at the Nayara Arenal Resort in mid January 2012. The property is really beautiful, lush gardens with lots of little birds flying around. The bungalow itself was tastefully decorated and provided all luxury you might expect from it. But....upon booking and before arrival we wrote to the resort asking if there are mosquito nets in the... More

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with others. We take your candid comments very seriously and will definitely address the attitude that you mentioned with the entire restaurant team. This is quite disheartening as the staff has always been our strength and we have had no comments like this to date. With... More

This hotel is absolutely amazing! My experience at this hotel was nothing short of perfection. This staff is so helpful, and the setting is beautiful. The views of the Arenal volcano from every room are jaw dropping!! The restaurant is delicious, I ordered a special sushi roll that had interesting tropical ingredients, and it was the best thing I ate... More

We stayed at Arenal Nayara from February 8-10, 2012. This was the third of a 4 hotel, weeklong tour of Costa Rica to celebrate our 10-year anniversary. This is by far the nicest hotel I have stayed at for any price, but for the price we paid it could not be beat. We also stayed at the Springs Resort, and... More

By far the nicest place I have ever stayed. Honeymoon? This is the place you won't be disappointed. Volcano views from your deck are beautiful. Outdoor showers and jacuzzi on your deck too. Will come back again.

We just spent 6 nights at Nayara in room 31 for our 10th anniversary and could not be happier. We booked the hideaway package, which included one free tour, a trip to Eco termales hot springs, free breakfast every day, free dinner for two one night and a couples mud massage. We did not arrive until 10.30pm, due to the... More

After a VERY rocky start to our Costa Rican adventure, we came to this hotel. My boyfriend had surprised me with the reservation here. From the minute we pulled up, we were treated GREAT. They had our file ready, the manager greeted us and lead us from the stairs to the check-in counter. They then brought us cold towels, and... More

There are so many positive things to say about Nayara. If we go back to Arenal, I would not think of staying anywhere else. First, we had a change of plans and the hotel management was very accommodating in reducing the length of our stay - we were able to use our credit for the adventure tours booked through the... More
