Totally amazing! Enjoyed every minute of our 4 night stay! Wine pairing dinner at Nostalgia wine bar and romantic dinner in the private pavilion were spectacular! Our guides for tours of hanging bridges and lava fields were extremely knowledgeable. Transportation arranged by resort from/to airport made the experience stress free. Accommodations and staff are 5 star.

We had an absolutely amazing trip to Costa Rica while staying at Nayara. We stayed for the entire week, and loved the privacy and peacefulness of the resort. We went on adventures for 4 of our days (zip lining, waterfall jumping/rapelling, white water rafting, and arenal hanging bridges/hiking the volcano area) and spent the other 2 days relaxing by the...

This property and resort was incredibly BEAUTIFUL! My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon (and we really wish we'd stayed longer at this location) and it was everything we could have imagined plus more. The landscaping and uniqueness of each bungalow really sets this place a part from other resorts. We ate the best meal...

Other than to zipline and to hike at Arenal Volcano, we never left this resort. You will never want to leave! We were travelling with our 3 adult kids (all in their 20's) and everyone was happy. The rooms are large with outdoor showers and a beautiful deck with a pool or jacuzzi. Overall the service is very good. We...

This resort was one of the most unique and secluded/quiet resorts we have ever been to. The landscaping was so beautiful and lush and all the wildlife was great to see and hear.

It was a long journey from the UK but well worth it. When we arrived they had prepared some food for us as they knew we had come a long way and the restaurants would be closed.
