Wish we had booked more than 2 days here! This "Small Distinctive Hotel" is a gem. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable- quite exceptional service. The individual bungalows are tastefully decorated, with color schemes that complement the outdoor surroundings of beautiful plants and flowers. The view of Arenal volcano from the room's deck is breathtaking. Truly amazing hotel. Complementary desayuno (breakfast)... More

This hotel is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at! From the minute you arrive you are treated like royalty. The private driver from SJO (Manuel) was the best. He was waiting for us at the airport with a sign with our names on it, spoke great English and was very informative and funny. The check in... More

I won't even get into a detailed review here because it's not necessary. Everything here - everything - is top-notch and worth every penny. Set your expectations high; Nayara will exceed them.

They have stategically planted so many beautiful plants and flowers in between the bungalows that you feel your room is the only one on the property. The rooms are just amazing!!! The... More

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

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.
