We have traveled fairly extensively, and Nayara is absolutely the best place we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The staff is amazing (J.C., Lindsay, Estephan, and everyone else too). The food is so good in Altamira that we never ate anywhere else. The spa is fabulous. The grounds are gorgeous. The Nayara Suite is all that you could ever want. At arrival, you are met with a cool towel and a fruit drink while you check in. Then you are whisked by golfcart to your accommodations. The suite has two full bath areas, with an indoor shower and an outdoor shower. There is a wraparound deck with hammock, chairs, table and hot tub, all overlooking the Arenal volcano and lush grounds. You cannot see another casita. The restaurant is very attractive, with a staff that is well trained, professional and friendly. We enjoyed a special at dinner on our first night, and the chef gladly made it for us again later in the week. Breakfast buffet is delicious with a huge array of choices, all perfectly prepared. They set out sandwiches, fruit and plastic bags so you can take lunch with you on your day's activity. Even housekeeping is great. Our housekeeper amused us with "towel animals" every day. They were so cute we hated to use the towels, so by the end of our stay, we had a menagerie. I looked hard for a flaw so this review wouldn't be so gushy, but there just wasn't one. To top it all off, the weather was gorgeous the whole stay, and we saw the volcano clear three different days.
