They have an “amazing” website www.nayaraspa.com where they prominently display their award for being named the most romantic resort by the members of Trip Advisor. “Most Romantic?” First the rooms are reasonable but not “all inclusive.” Fortuna, the closest town - pop 7,000 - is about three hours north of San Jose and four hours East of Liberia (another airport)....

We recently just got married and decided to honeymoon in Costa Rica. I made the decision to get the Nayara Suite at the Nayara hotel, room #26. The suite was fantastic, its more like your own personal hut. The ceilings are very high and outdoor showers was a great touch. We were greeted with a wonderful outdoor deck with a... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 5 nights. It was absolutely incredible!! The casitas are beautiful, impeccably clean, and very spacious. We especially loved the outdoor shower and hot tub, and the hammock. Oh, and the view of the volcano was spectacular (we were in Casita # 19). There is a mini bar which is very reasonably priced....

The review is going to be very repetitive of just about everyone else's on here....this hotel is the best place I have ever stayed! The rooms are so romantic and private, the outdoor shower is a great touch (I need to add one to my own house now!) and the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The staff here is... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here during our honeymoon. We felt like we received the royal treatment! Our private bungalow was amazing...I was in awe! Although there were other guests around, the level of privacy is superb. With the outdoor showers, comfortable bed, a private hot tub with a volcano view, we could have spent all day inside.... More

The staff greeted us immediately with drinks and refreshing towels. Throughout our stay, everyone we met were extremely friendly and helpful. The food at the... More

After reading several reviews on tripadvisor, we chose this hotel based on the fact that it was not a large resort but had all the special touches you could hope for. At 45 or so casitas, the hotel is not that small, but because each room is separate (ours had a jungle view), we felt we had staked out our... More
