The Nayara is a fabulous hotel - and as it's only been open for a little over a year it doesn't feel tired at all. When we arrived we were given a refreshing welcome cocktail and driven by golf buggy to our villa. The villas are spacious and very well designed with a good bathroom area and excellent indoor and...

Admittedly when it comes to reading reviews, I generally take them with a grain of salt. Not this time. All the wonderful things you've read are so true. This facility is beyond impeccable. The gardens are magnificent and lovingly tended. The restaurant fare is quite delectable with ample servings. Our private casita was tastefully decorated in vivid colors, from the... More

The Nayara is a beautiful hotel, which clearly reflects the vision and approach of Angelo, the proprietor. The rooms, which he designed, are very comfortable, elegant and beautifully equipped and furnished. The comfortable beds, the verandah with views of the volcano, outdoor whirlpool bath and flowers visited by hummingbirds, the flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPod docking station, the lovely... More

My husband and I recently stayed a few nights at Nayara and absolutely loved it there. The staff is so friendly and welcoming, and the grounds are stunning. We had a private balcony that overlooks the volcano (with an outdoor jacuzzi!) We also had an outdoor shower AND an indoor shower. The rooms are airy and cool. The breakfasts are... More

We did a lot of research on Trip Advisor before deciding to book part of our honeymoon at Nayara and we are so happy we made the decision to stay here. From the moment we arrived when Jonathan gave us fresh juice and cool towels, we knew we'd enjoy our stay. All of the staff were genuinely nice, not in... More

MY wife and I recently spent 4 nights at the Arenal Nayara and had a great time. This is a fantastic hotel set amongst lush tropical vegetation. ALL of the employees we dealt with were attentive, friendly and helpful. Each room is an individual villa that is private and comfortable and I belieive each room faces the Arenal volcano. The...

In my fourth trip to Costa Rica including 4 excursions to the Volcan Arenal area, this is my first trip including my wife and I without our kids. Arenal Nayara was the perfect romantic getaway we looked for! First, unlike some of the resorts in the Volcan Arenal area, Arenal Nayara is quite easy to get to (no 20km drive... More

The gardens around the hotel were beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Most of the employees spoke english and would make phone calls and translate for us. The only thing was the hotel lobby closes at 10pm, we arrived at 9:30pm and had no idea of this. I don't know what we would've done if we had... More

This is an amazing place to stay. Stayed there for 5 nights from Dec. 22-27 of 2008. The views from the pool, the paths within the grounds, the club house, and from my villa were amazing. Stayed in #23 and it probably has the best view-No obstructions!!! The room was awesome and the outside shower is great. The hot tub... More
