Simply put: a remarkable hotel. Beautiful rooms---we were in #17 which, I believe, is an "ordinary" casita--- indoor shower, outdoor shower, private balcony with jacuzzi, chaise lounges and hammock, an absurdly spacious interior, plenty of cabinet/storage, and more---and convenient to the pool, restaurants, and lobby of the hotel. The hotel property is not large but it is lushly gorgeous and the grounds are impeccably maintained. Nice small pool....too busy?.....there are Jacuzzi's dotted around the property, or enjoy the one on your balcony. Beautiful and quiet spa facility. Excellent food. Most important, superb service from a bright, young staff that is uniformly friendly, well-trained, and eager to please (congratulations to Manager---Freddy, who we never met). Charo (Sharon), Keilor, Jose, Jorge, and Jairo were great.....but those whose names I can't recall were also excellent. If you're looking for a formal European-style of service, Nayara may be too warm and intimate for you. My wife and I (in our early 50's) have traveled a good deal and have experienced both styles---for us, Nayara was perfect. We can't overstate how much we enjoyed Nayara and, frankly, their prices are too low for the quality of service and product they provide.
