We arrived at Nayara after a very long day of traveling. We were greeted at the valet parking area by an extremely warm and friendly gentleman named Jose. He escorted us into the amazingly beautiful reception area where an equally friendly Sharon met us. We were given drinks and cool wash clothes for our faces as we sat in the comfortable and relaxing reception area. Our stay only got better as time went on. We booked a suite and were not disappointed. It was huge, absolutely stunningly beautiful and everything we had hoped for. The outdoor shower is dreamy. The vanity areas are spectacular. Our deck overlooked the volcano and had gorgeous views. The area surrounding our deck was planted with a lush array of tropical plants and had constantly present hummingbirds and other amazing birds. The service was impeccable. Every detail in the rooms and all common areas was thought of. I literally could not have been more happy and can not think of a single negative thing to say about Nayara. The staff made our stay wonderful and even went so far as to make and have everyone on staff sign a Congratulations card for our wedding. They are just the nicest group of people. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I can't attest much to a majority of the food because my husband and I are vegetarians, but I will say, the vegetarian fare was great and they had some interesting looking meat options that many people seemed to be loving. Breakfast buffets were tasty and full of fresh fruit and both healthy and sinful options. The cocktails were great. I didn't think they were expensive ($6-10 each) but some might depending on what you were used to.
Nayara was a beautiful start to our vacation and our marriage. I cannot recommend it enough. If you want relaxation, peacefulness, beauty and great service, stop shopping and book here. You will not be disappointed. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions! I'd love to provide more feedback or answer specifics.
