Stayed here with 2 toddlers 6-7 December 2016. Great property, garden, fish pond, jacuzzi, service, pool, restaurants, management,.....You will not want to leave. Probably the best hotel in Costa Rica that we know.

The place is just over the top gorgeous to start with.....the thread of casual comfy yet elegant design is woven between lush foliage that act to encase your 'casita' in a garden of privacy. In effect, every villa has it's own private rainforest. Our villa (49) had a spectacular view of the Arenal volcano to wake up to each morning...

My husband and I went to Nayara for our Honeymoon and I must say it was the best decision we ever made. The place is heaven on earth and the service is top notch. The grounds are so well kept and beautiful, the food and amenities were more than 5 star. We would like to especially thank Cristian and Junior,...

We only spent two night here and are already planning to come back for a week sometime in the next year. Very relaxing environment, total privacy, excellent food. We especially liked eating by the pool at Amor Loco where they had some excellent music by talented people. Our waiter, Robin, and his team were excellent.

Exquisite property with a wonderful sense of tranquility and privacy. Well worth the 2 plus hour drive from San Jose! Hidden in the rainforest, but offering all the nuances of a 5 star hotel that it is. An extremely friendly, welcoming and attentive staff, delicious food and beautiful décor. I would revisit this property in a heart-beat! As a travel...

This is a fabulous property, with friendly, attentive staff. Our group stayed in two cottages. We had turn-down service every night and the best shower in our lives. Seriously, we all agreed, the shower is amazing. Having air conditioning is awesome! There is so much humidity in the rain forest that having air conditioning in your hotel room is something...

What a lovely hotel, everything was perfect, except the weather! Reception staff are outstanding, so helpful and cheerful. Rooms are fantastic, the jungle is on your balcony along with a huge hottub and comfy recliners, there is also a giant volcano which we did not see for 3 days due to rain/cloud. Beds are comfy, good linens, indoor and outside...

This hotel was sublime- when we visited we had just got engaged- and the staff kindly upgraded us to a bungalow suite- it had a Jakussi pool in the garden of the suite and it was just lovely! The hotel was really nice and the decor was beautiful. This place is a really relaxing hotel and we would definitely return.

Finally found a good deal and went for it. Although we didn't have much luck with the weather, we managed to enjoy the best out of the hotel. From the warm pools to morning yoga, we found every detail to be just right. Not too much nor too little, food was great and best of all, the service. Highly recommended.
