Upon arriving I was skeptical. The hotel was much bigger than where we came from in Tamarindo and appeared to have more of an impersonal big resort feel. We were informed that only the lobby had wifi since they had a big storm that fried the server. I thought- oh no, I picked the wrong hotel... Boy was I wrong!... More

I've been lucky enough to visit beautiful hotels, this hotel edges it as my favourite of all time. It shared many attributes of a luxury trip in the Maldives. But instead of a crashing sea we had a steaming volcano out the back. That really is amazing, because there's a whole lot of sea but seldom does your view include... More

The hotel was so much better than expected, the... More

Nayara is the most beautiful resort I've ever been to. My boyfriend and I drove in late from San Jose, the night of our check in & were greeted with a full staff of individuals, smiling, and ready to help us with everything: park our car, carry our bags, exchange our money, confirm our spa appointment, etc. They brought us...

Staying in the midst of a rain forest, abundance of tropical flowers everywhere, having amazing views of the volcano, mountains surrounding the property, just felt like heaven. The excellent service of the staff made us feel at home.

My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time and spent three nights at Nayara. We were greeted with smiles and a warm welcome. The resort itself is beautiful but it was the staff that will bring us back. We have never had the pleasure of being surrounded by such kind and attentive staff. It is no... More

As you enter and get your formalities done at the reception, you get served some fabulous welcome drinks, costa rican style. And then you are escorted in the cart and shown the property(which is fantastic) and dropped into your room which will take your breathe away. If you have dreamt of a tropical paradise, this hotel's casita rooms are it.... More

Upon arriving late, we were greeted with such grace, and even before checking in, staff made a recommendation to grab dinner before restaurant closing. After dinner, check-in was simple and we were escorted by golf cart to our beautiful suite by very friendly staff. Our suite was unbelievable from late night arrival to final departure. Open view of Arenal volcano... More

I cannot say enough good things about this property! It is paradise from the moment you walk in the door and they provide you with warm hospitality and welcome drink. The room bungalows are dreamy and all the restaurants we tried were amazing. Highly recommended!! Try the outdoor yoga class and best massage I ever had in their outstanding spa.... More
