I would-- without a singular hesitation-- recommend the Nayara to anyone. My experience at Nayara was by far the highlight of my recent 1 week Costa Rican vacation. So much so, that my husband and I kept saying how glad we were we stayed there last; any other place absolutely pales in comparison to this slice of heaven.
Why? In summary-- 1) gorgeous grounds and literally unbelievable views. 2) amazing attention to detail 3) world class service and staff (including the restaurant).
Our favorite part: We barely wanted to leave our balcony, as we were constantly entertained by the gorgeous view of the volcano, tons of birds, and other wildlife. Our own personal hot tub and hammock certainly added to that. The lovely pool area and swim up bar came in as close 2nd as our favorite hang out. Not to mention the wine bar (so cool!!)
As for the rooms themselves-- beautiful and artistic looking, evocative of a place Hemingway would have loved. Dark wood and billowy curtains.... the individual villa made for the perfect balance of privacy (without feeling too secluded or unsafe). You cannot HELP but feel utterly romantic at Nayara.
All in all--a perfect honeymoon getaway. Thank you, Nayara!
