Hotel's Favorite
We spent 5 days at Nayara Springs and it just kept getting better. The service is outstanding- from the personal host that handles all aspects of your activities or any desire you may have, to the caring and professional staff that makes you feel special. The grounds and housekeeping is impeccable with special touches everywhere. I traveled with my husband, 2 teenage kids and my 82year old mom. While she is in great health, she still could not do zip lining, waterfall repelling and some of the physical activities we could do with our kids. I asked Andres (our host) if he could help with activities on site for my mom on one day when we were out zip lining all day. He was so gracious and planned for someone to give her a tour of the entire grounds in a golf cart - making stops, taking pictures, showing her all the special places on the extensive grounds - even let her peek into new villas they are building. After that she joined a coffee tasting class where she met other guests and had a blast. We got back and she had just finished her adventures and she was so happy and thrilled with her day - happiness all around. This is just one of many examples we saw of world class hospitality. By the end of our stay - the whole staff knew her and spoiled her ! Besides this, the food was excellent, pools and pool bar fantastic (shout out to Claudia who made the best drinks and helped us celebrate our anniversary). The Spa was wonderful especially in an open air oasis. Quality of the guides were excellent. We were also blessed by great weather. I would not hesitate to come back - I have a niece getting married and I am recommending Nayara Springs as a honeymoon worthy stay!

We stayed in a villa near check in. While we did not have a view, the villa has a private, large deck and warm pool, indoor sitting area, (but you won't be sitting inside) indoor and outdoor showers. It is quite large with two vanity/sink areas. Super spacious and luxurious. Daily room service includes turn down. Little touches make you feel pampered: a towel folded to create a different creature every night. Robes and slippers. Canopy bed. The property is quite steep, but there are golf cart shuttles always on call. Your own room includes access to all the resorts facilities, and they are plentiful. Several pools, a thermal hot spring heated to varying temperatures always a bar close at hand for refreshment. The restaurants on property are good to great. Don't miss Amor Loco and Ayla, especially the latter which faces the volcano which seems so close you can touch it. Sunset behind the volcano is gorgeous. Don't miss it. We visited off-season, mid September. It is the rainy season, but don' let this put you off. It rains for an hour or two and the cloud cover seems to take the edge off. Far fewer people here this time of year makes you feel as if you have the place to yourself.

Out of all the resorts and properties we have stayed at in Costa Rica, Nayara Springs leaps to the forefront. Besides the gorgeous large rooms, the plunge pool, and the variety of restaurants on the property, the staff at Nayara is exceptional. There is nothing that I could even marginally criticize. There is so much that stands out I am not sure where to begin. So in no specific order here goes: 1. Food. Outstanding breakfasts ( the chef even emailed me the recipe for one and offered to show how to cook it in the kitchen. That wasn’t even an activity that many places charge for. That was simply being nice). Great fresh lunches with farm to table ingredients. Delicious dinner options at a variety of venues and creative cocktails (I had a beet juice martini that knocked my socks off). Intimate live entertainment during dinner that was soothing and Costa Rican 2. Staff: After the first day it seemed everyone knew us by our first names. You can get around the property by cart and all cart drivers were courteous and friendly. Always greeting you, thanking you or bidding good night. Pura Vida! 3. Grounds. The most beautiful lush green grounds I have ever been in with nice walking paths. 4. Rooms. I could just live there. They were that good. Fantastic property. I am sure I left things out but go and see for yourself, or don’t. I don’t like places I love to get too popular because then it gets difficult for me to get reservations to stay.

This is probably one of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed at..and possibly ever will!! The room: tropical paradise! Each room is a private villa that they have used the natural rainforest to make private. You get your own private pool and deck and an outdoor rainforest shower. The grounds: gorgeous just to walk around and explore. Or you can use the complimentary golf carts. We tried to walk as much as we could because there are a few trails and ponds to see some wildlife…but some of the routes have a pretty steep incline just FYI.. Restaurants: breakfasts were amazing and complimentary. They have an a La carte option, but we really enjoyed our morning walks to the connected Nayara Gardens to get the buffet. Dinners they do get a bit pricey and don’t really have too many local options, but everything we did have was delicious. I would definitely recommend taking a trip into the La Fortuna town and get dinner if you are staying multiple nights. The must do on the property is the wine bar (you can get tapas there). It is a self pour machine and the SommelierJose was super friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about wine! Staff: unbelievable…every single one of them!! All the bartenders, servers, golf cart drivers, masseuses, and front desk were so professional, personable, and happy to help you with anything! Excursion: we splurged and did the private tour with Nayara for the hanging bridges and waterfall and it was one of my favorite days of our trip. Hanzel was our tour guide and he was unbelievable! So fun and knowledgeable on his job and wanted to make sure we got the best out of our day. He was absolutely amazing at spotting animals and lining up his binocular for us to see them. We probably would have saw 1/8 the wildlife without him! Overall, I could not recommend this resort enough. We stayed the second week of our trip at the beach and we wish we stayed longer at Nayara and we were there for a week. Needless to say we are deciding which anniversary we should go back for…and we got home yesterday.

If your looking for a quiet getaway in the middle of the Rainforest, look no further. We have traveled to many places and Nayara Springs is by far the best resort we have visited. From the incredibly attentive staff to the gourmet meals, everything is all about the guest experience. Choose from a wide range of activities or just lounge all day in your incredible villa with a hot springs pool. We could not have had a more relaxing week. Thank you for the perfect getaway.

Even with some heavy rainfall (typical for the season) we had an incredible stay at Nayara Springs. Each and every staff member was friendly, fully accommodating and positively engaging. They were kind enough to provide golf cart rides thru the hilly property upon request and even point out some of the local wildlife along the way. The hot springs and the views of the Arenal volcano would be worth any stay at this property alone. All of the food, from room service to each of the restaurants on property were exceptional. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay in the near future!

My husband and I were absolutely blown away by the amenities, the service, the absolute luxury, and the environment of this resort. Both of us agreed that we would go again in a heartbeat! It's a magical place that deserves at least 3 or 4 days - we felt short-changed because we were only there for 2 nights. If you can, reserve a villa. It's extremely private and you will have your own private pool fed by the volcano's hot springs - I can't begin to tell you how absolutely gorgeously sinful it felt to slide into the water just as dawn was breaking! We really enjoyed the selection of wines and service provided by Jose Obregon at the Wine and Tapas Bar. I recommend that you visit it - Jose really knows his stuff and can recommend a great pairing for your food. If you're hesitating about spending time at this resort - don't. Just go. You will not regret it.

My husband and I stayed at Nayara Springs for 6 nights in August for our 10 year wedding anniversary. This place is unbelievably magical! We were greeted with delicious mini cocktails upon check in while getting and overview of the miraculous grounds! The room is absolutely gorgeous with an indoor and outdoor shower. Outside is a secluded, hot springs fed plunge pool surrounded by beautiful plants and wildlife. We dined at almost every restaurant on the premises, which served some of the best food we have ever tasted. The service was impeccable! Our room was cleaned and spotless everyday along with turn down service at night. There are golf carts available for transportation while staying at the resort. We opted to walk everywhere, the grounds are too beautiful to not experience. We saw a ton of wildlife while walking throughout Nayara Springs, Gardens and Tented Camp. We did the Mystic Hanging Bridges private expedition through the resort. Our guide Levi was spectacular, we learned so much about Costa Rica and saw so many animals! We also took the coffee class with Pablo. Pablo was so informative about Costa Rican coffee. Special love to Krystal at reception for making sure everything was absolutely perfect during our stay, Fred who delivered our delicious breakfast in the mornings, Juan Carlos who made us tasty drinks at Henry’s, Levi for our amazing expedition, Pablo for teaching us about coffee, Rodulfo and Palma who drove us to and from the airport and taught us history about Costa Rica and Karol who help organize transportation and a special surprise prior to us getting there. Thank you to everyone who served us and works at Nayara Springs you are all amazing! This trip was truly unforgettable and we will definitely be back!!!

My husband and I spent three nights at Nayara Springs as part of our honeymoon. From the moment we checked in, everything was so seamless and the staff went out of their way to make our trip special. The staff were so unbelievably friendly and accommodating; they even stopped to point out animals like monkeys and sloths in the trees! Our room was so beautiful, we especially loved the outdoor showers and the toasty plunge pool with water fed from natural springs. We liked going to the buffet breakfast at La Terrezza at Nayara Garden, but the a la crate breakfast at the Springs was also very good. It was very nice to have access to all of the pools and restaurants at any of the three resorts on the property. Our favorite pool was Cielito Lindo, and we enjoyed 2 for 1 happy hour drinks every day! Overall, this resort was the perfect place for a beautiful, relaxing honeymoon.
