This hotel is unparalled in quality. Everywhere on the grounds is canvassed by lush greenery and flowers. There is a mix of couples and families, but most we met on our trip were married couples or honeymooners. Our suite was so spacious and included an indoor standing double shower as well as a double outdoor shower. The balcony had dual... More

If you have researched other hotels and have found Nayara, stop looking. Nayara Hotel Spa and Gardens is an absolutely beautiful oasis that exceeded our expectations at every turn. Going into this honeymoon, I knew that our stay was going to be magical as all of the reviews spoke very highly of this hotel. From the moment we arrived in... More

Nice hotel. Beautiful rooms, very limited outdoor space, all of it is used up by the bungalows. Service was OK, helpful in the "tico" way. Check in was easy and straight forward. Lock on the door was broken for our room, took about 2 hours and a few attempts to fix but at different times they half did it and... More

We are here to celebrate our anniversary with our 2 children ages 8 and 11, we booked a suite as it was quoted as being bigger than a Deluxe Casita. The hotel is lovely but rooms are much smaller than I expected as most of the space has been used for the outside terrace and bathroom area. Rooms are big... More

Jairo_quesada, Gerente at Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, responded to this review

Dear Paulandanju, Sorry that your room wasn't configured to your liking. At over 1,100 square, the Nayara Suite is one of the biggest one-bedroom villas we have ever come across. With that said, we don't recommend sharing the space with teenage children. We designed the room with couples in mind. As such, you are right that we devoted an unusual... More

Went there for part of our honeymoon and we were blown away. We saw a casita, but upgraded to a suite and then upgraded again to a villa so we experienced them all. All three were gorgeous but if it's a special occasion I recommend upgrading to the suite or villa. You can make a once in a lifetime experience... More

From the moment you step into reception, you feel like you have transported to another world. You don't really care if it's overcast or raining. The friendly people, the incredible paths full of flowers and hummingbirds, the sound of cicadas and birds, the scent of whatever tree it is that opens up the sweetest smelling flowers at night on the...

This hotel is in a stunning location and offers true 5 star service however I did think it was slightly let down by the quality of some of the meals-hence only 4 stars. The rooms are beautiful. We had a garden view but i would think the volcano views are stunning. The pool is small but great for a drink... More

From the moment we entered the front desk you felt the love and life of this place. The staff greeted us with smiles and amazing welcome drinks (local fresh fruits blended) fresh chilled towels, the room was unreal, something you wouldn't find anywhere else in the world. It was amazing, clean, modern, tropical. Everything was so well kept and everyone... More

We stayed with 2 children 8 and 10 for 3 nights in August. This hotel is nothing short of perfection. I read all the reviews so my expectations were sky high. This hotel met them. From the moment we received our check in drink to the time we checked out the service was second to none. It is centrally located... More

We spent 3 nights in the fabulous Nayara Hotel. It was incredible. The staff are friendly and attentive, the restaurants are great (we dined at the main restaurant and the Asian restaurant), and the rooms are huge, elegant and comfortable. The pool is nice, the health club is beautiful. Staff were excellent at booking excursions. Breakfast buffet was a particular... More
