Our room was wonderful and it had a lot of little surprises for my birthday, the staff was so nice they even sang Happy Birthday to me! The food was amazing, especially the asian, do try the signature cocktail. The room spacious and gorgeous with a beautiful view: 4 showers, jacuzzi, hammocks, chairs, comfy bed, and everything you can think... More

We fell in love with this resort. It was amazing! When we first got there, they upgraded us to a casita, which is probably the nicest place my new wife and I have ever stayed. It was incredibly beautiful, felt tucked away and secluded, and like home. We were on our honeymoon and it couldn't have started off any better!... More

Nayara was flawless from check-in to check-out. The customer service, flora & fauna, food, villa and on-property sloths made for an experience of a lifetime. We truly cannot say enough things about this gorgeous, stand-out property.

I couldn't begin to do this hotel justice in my review. The rooms were the most beautiful and spacious I have ever stayed in. Having an indoor and outdoor shower was a crazy experience. We only used the outdoor shower. The deck was amazing with the chaise lounge chairs, hammock and jacuzzi. Not to mention the view of the volcano.... More

Pros: - Installations are beautiful and well maintained. - Complementary wifi's signal is pretty good. - Service is great. - Spa service: quality of massage, and the outdoor massage was simply the best (and I have tried several different top spas in the U.S.) - Restaurants are very good. They are very accommodating of any dietary restriction. - Restaurant prices... More

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

While looking on TripAdviser for a trip to La Fortune with varies dates, I saw that this hotel was always booked so I went to the website and spoke to someone via Chat and found that they had a Castilo room available so I immediately booked the room for 5 nights. 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.
