We had high expectations given the trip advisor reviews and our stay exceeded them. The grounds were beautiful, the staff was super nice, the pools & jacuzzis were lovely, the room was gorgeous and private, view of Arenal from the room was stunning, and the breakfast buffet was large and delicious. They were also super nice to kids, although there was only one other little one when we visited.
I struggle to think of anything negative. We didn't want to leave the property! They don't have hot springs but the new springs section over the bridge has a lovely pool with cool spring water, which is refreshing in the heat.
And hot springs aren't far away - about a 20 minute walk to Los Lagos (family friendly one) or a little further to baldi & ecothermales.
We stumbled across amor loco (the springs restaurant) while looking around the property the first night and were blown away by how great it was. The vibe was cool, service was fantastic and the food was delicious (as good as you would get in New York). We ate there for 2 out of our 3 dinner meals. (The other night we walked to Benedictus organic steak house which is 600m down to the main road, across the road, then 800m through the farm. It was nice but amor loco was better).
We loved nayara. It was worth every cent. We would highly recommend it. And if we ever return to the region we would go out of our way to go back here.
