If you are looking for a gorgeous place that feels as if you are the only couple at the resort, then this is your stop. The staff are incredibly personable and attentive and the grounds are unreal. There are multiple hot tubs, a spa, and a pool complete with swim up bar. The bungalos are just beautiful, though they are... More

My wife and I stayed here in December 2011 for 3 nights. We had room 2 with a view of the volcano. The room was clean and spacious. The outside patio with hammock and hot tub, as well as the outside shower on the other side of the villa, were private and as good as advertised. After 16 years of... More

Choosing Nayara for our 9 day trip to Costa Rica proved to be the vacation of a lifetime. The grounds/rooms at the hotel are stunning and clean, the staff are so helpful, and there were little perks around every corner that made us feel like we were getting the most of our money. Perks/Accolades: Our experiences at the spa were... More

Stayed for five (5) nights in December 2011 and loved every minute. We booked a suite and were NOT disappointed in anyway. Our room (#30) was very private and we enjoyed many lazy hours chilling on the balcony either in the large jacuzzi or hammock without a care in the world. If you stay here take time to explore the...

My husband and I traveled here in November and stayed for four nights (although you could easily stay a week here). We paid $199/night and that included the breakfast buffet - plenty to choose from!The rooms are huge although the lighting is a little on the dim side. There's a huge jacuzzi outside on the deck that overlooks the lush,... More

Pros: the rooms are gorgeous and enormous and generally just wonderful. We were in a Nayara Suite with both indoor and outdoor showers as well as a private deck with hammock and jacuzzi and lounge chairs - if you're going to head to this place, you might as well splurge for it. Great volcano views, and plenty of privacy from... More

We recently got back from a 10 day trip to Costa Rica for our 10 year anniversary. We stayed at Nayara for the first part of our trip and the overall experience blew us away! From the moment we arrived, they offered us a drink and a hot towel as we checked in. The staff catered to us whenever we... More

This is by far the most amazing place I have vacationed. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The suite we were in was fabulous, it was more like your own private bungalow with a gorgeous deck, outside private jacuzzi tub, hammock and rocking chairs with views of the volcano. The grounds were clean and well kept. The excursions to... More

This hotel was a prefect place for those on a honeymoon. The bungalows were so romantic and the hotel pool and restaurant were very chic. And, it's not to far from lots of adventures, such as hiking to La Fortuna waterfall and zip lining.

This place was pretty amazing. The hotel is pristine with the gardens and jungle flawlessly manicured. Amazing view of the volcano. The rooms are massive. The free breakfast and dinner deal found online made it very affordable. Will 100% recommend and go back. One of the waiters, Noland, was amazing and hilarious. This hotel is romantic, yet near many activities.
