This review is shamefully late in posting, I truly apologize. We spent an incredible week at the Nayara Resort over Christmas, initially we weren’t sure about how we would feel taking that type of trip over the holidays and we also realized that it was their busy season. We decided to make the trip and were so glad we did....

Nayara..Nayara..it was all that we needed and we were so relaxed. My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Nayara and we stayed in a casita for 3 nights. The breathtaking view of the volcano right outside our deck excited and then calmed our senses. Lounge on a chair on the deck, sipping coffee, swing yourself to sleep on the...

Just imagine sitting in a hot tub with a glass of sauvignon, looking up at a live volcano while hummingbirds sip nectar & eagles soar overhead - in February. This perfect hotel in the middle of the cloud forest was heaven on earth & cannot be recommended too highly. A bit pricey, but worth it for the immaculate service, the...

Abercrombie & Kent picked this hotel for us or our trip to Costa Rica. Lovely room looking out on volcano. Huge room with indoor and outdoor shower, large deck with hot tub and hammock. Wonderful waking to so many birds in the morning. Also great service and very good food. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Yes it is beautiful, and so are the people of this great location but service reigns at this upscale, rural inn. There are many things to do in the area but we were also just as happy to be back at the main pool relaxing. Even our small children were accommodated with kid food and friendly high fives by the...

This place has a lot of great reviews but I would like to recommend staying in one of the suites. My husband and I spent four nights in early March and had spectacular views of the volcano every day! I loved the outdoor shower and the mini bar prices were very reasonable. We also got a couples massage at the...

No complaints. Staff is great, the views are amazing and rooms are perfect. The private hot tubs near the pool were very nice and staff at the front desk was very accommodating. Free wifi throughout resort was nice as well.

If you had told me I would completely relax within five minutes of arriving at Nayara, I would have said you're crazy, but thanks for the amazing staff this is what happened! My husband and I arrived hot, tired, dusty, and thirsty after a 5+ hour drive from Monteverde. When we pulled our car up to reception, we were immediately...

The attention to detail in this resort is truly amazing. Staff manage to strike the right balance between anticipating your needs, giving you privacy, yet also being warm and friendly. There is nothing we did not love about this hotel. Just wish we had stayed longer. Nayara is one of the top three hotels I've ever stayed in and I've...
