We stayed 6 nights at Nayara for our honeymoon. All the staff were professional, friendly, and accomodating. We were always greeted with a smile. Our honeymoon package included breakfast and dinner each day. The breakfast buffet always had a good variety of fresh fruits and hot food. There were wrapped sandwiches available at each breakfast for those who wanted to... More

This hotel is beyond beautiful. Everywhere you looked you were surrounded by nature and beauty. We had a huge room with an amazing view of the volcano from our bed and a deck with an outdoor Jacuzzi and hammock for taking an afternoon nap. The rooms also have outdoor showers. The entire place exuded romance. Even the cleaning staff would... More

I would definitely come back to this place! You can tell the owner cares about his guests to ensure they have a great time and are taken care of! Would recommend to anyone looking for a private getaway. It has an outdoor shower and hot tub, wine bar and great service!

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The casitas, staff, food, views, wine bar, everything was so perfect and beautiful. Definitely a better place for couples than families. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - my husband and I will definitely be going back!

Breakfast & Dinner were included with our package - and boy did we take full advantage. The food was INCREDIBLE, and they had a special prix fixe menu that changed every night. There was construction while we were there - they're building a sushi bar, I believe - which was a little annoying, but when I called the desk to... More
