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

We got interested in this hotel due to the nice panoramic view of Arenal volcano whenyou open their webpage. Well this is what you definetly will not get to see, because all the suites and casitas are surrounded by beautiful lush tropical vegetation all around your balcony and hardly leaving any space for a view. The hotel services are great,... More

Simply stated, it was perfect. By far the best hotel experience we've ever had. The staff was superb. Their kindness, helpfulness, humor and dedication was apparent from the moment we arrived. Above and beyond for every detail no matter how minuscule. Amenities were fantastic. Every possible aspect of life is taken into consideration. From the rooms to the spa to... More

Wow! We booked this hotel as an upgrade option for 2 nights as, as part of a tour around Costa Rica and I would TOTALLY recommend. A real taste of luxury, with nothing too much trouble and all details taken care of. From the welcome drinks, golf cart tour of the site, multiple restaurant and spa options and beautiful setting,...

I am still dreaming of this hotel. This hotel makes all other 5 star hotels look like 2 star hotels. The casitas were stunning and the service was impeccable! We lived Esteban who was so helpful and always remembered our names. We will be back to Costa Rica just for this hotel!!!

This accommodation offered a perfect experience. The food, cocktails, massages were top notch. The service was superior at the various onsite bars and restaurants. A perfect vacation for couples and families; there is a pool for adults and also a pool for families. We went during the rainy season but was still able to enjoy all that the accommodation offered.
