We just got back from our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We stayed at Nayara for the first 3 days of our trip. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. We loved the food that the restaurant had to offer. It was delicious and priced well. We also loved the complementary breakfast. There were many different choices for breakfast each day. The place... More

After all those bumpy roads but a beautiful boat ride on the lake, Nayara was an unbelieveable oasis for all of us.It is truly a very very romantic hotel. ( It is the mountain side equivalent of the Club Med we stayed at Maldives. ) The room was so romantic and beautiful and the jacuzzi at the porch was an... More

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and relaxed. This Hotel is classy but not stuffy, and so relaxing. We upgraded our rooms when we arrived, and boy was it worth it! The views were amazing from every spot at the hotel, but especially from our villa, which opened up to Arenal Volcano and beautiful jungle below. Jonathan was... More

This hotel markets itself as ranked in the top 5 most romantic hotels in Central America according to Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor I suggest you need to change the way you determine such rankings! We were very under-awed by this hotel. On the plus side the hotel has very beautiful rooms and a lovely view towards the volcano. On the down side,... More

I stayed at Arenal Nayara in late May for a friend's wedding. It is MUCH more posh than any place I would normally stay, but I decided to splurge because the wedding and events were to be held there. I'm very glad I stayed here, it was pricey (though we got a special wedding block rate), but worth every penny.... More

I truly had a wonderful time during my stay at Nayara.. The service and the hotel itself were outstanding. A picturesque view of the Arenal Volcano and an amazing surrounding. I truly loved it and so did my son. Highly recommendable.

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of July. We absolutley loved the service, room, grounds, and staff. We were in CR for a week and stayed here for the first part of our trip, before going to an all inclusive on the coast. Needless to say, we were ruined after staying here. Nothing compared to Nayara.

Our family had a fantastic time and my parents did as well. From the time we arrived, the staff was outstanding and welcoming. A big thanks to Jonathan for getting us set up with two family friendly villas and we really enjoyed Jose and the entire restaurant team.

The rooms at Nayara really are wonderful. My family occupied villas 46, 49 and 50 all which had superb views of the volcano. There is an indoor and outdoor shower which was fantastic. The bathroom is big enough to play full court basketball in. Porch and hammocks were the best part of the rooms. The rest of the hotel left... More

Thanks so much for your comments which we appreciate. We are adding 3 new wooden barrel tub Jacuzzis in one of the gardens not too far from the pool area. We are very excited about this addition which will offer private relaxation with views of the Arenal volcano. We are working limited hours to minimize disturbing our guests using the... More
