Visit the website, view the pics, read the details, note the awards. Then prepare to still be blown away and have all expectations exceeded! Nayara Springs is the part of Nayara Hotel's sister property that is the adults-only section, just a short walk over a connecting bridge that separates the casitas from the villas. Every bit of Nayara is beautiful--how... More

We spent 3 nights at Nayara but we could have happily spent a full week without leaving the hotel property, if the temptation to explore the area wasn’t so strong. The hotel grounds are simply breathtakingly beautiful and if you are lucky enough to get a glimpse of the Arenal volcano then you pretty much have the perfect view. We... More

Kicked off our honeymoon at Nayara and we never wanted to leave. The staff, amenities, location and views of Volcán Arenal are absolutely perfect. We could have used a few more days, especially to take advantage of the tours/excursions in the area.

The minute we stepped foot onto the grounds, we couldn't believe we were truly staying at something so beautiful. Walking through the gorgeous gardens and then stepping into the room (we had a garden suite) seemed like something most people only dream of! Every minute of our experience was truly bliss - from the welcoming faces, the beyond delicious food,... More

My wife and I came here to celebrate our combined birthday's and anniversary. I must say I have never stayed anywhere where I felt more relaxed and at peace and able to leave the crazy world behind. I studied for weeks trying to find the best place to stay for us and although I think there are probably several nice... More

Amazing resort. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating to anything we needed. The food is great. The rooms are the best part! Everything is really clean and the grounds are beautiful. Also, my fiancée got a massage and said it was the best of her life. The breakfast is really good with many local options. They also helped... More

Once we arrived, we were immediately welcomed by the staff in the most friendly way one can imagine. Our car was parked and unpacked while we enjoyed a delicious welcome drink at the reception. Luis Solano, the frontdesk supervisor, made us feel at home immediately. The room with private jacuzzi was simply superb: everything was so clean and all the... More

My husband John and I stayed here in late May for our honeymoon, it was the most beautiful place I had ever been. The rooms were cozy and private, the pools were a blast (especially during happy hour - we met so many other couples) and the numerous restaurants on the property were all so different and authentic. I can't... More
