My husband and I stayed at Nayara for two nights and loved the experience. Our room was beautiful and felt very secluded. We loved the happy hour and the sushi restaurant, and I had a fantastic mud mask facial at the spa. The staff are extremely friendly and very professional. They helped organize tours for us and called the airline... More

Everything about this resort is SUPER! From staff, to views, food, outdoor shower, couldn't find a thing we didn't like. The room was breathtaking, we didn't want to leave the resort. We never used the inside shower. They surprised my husband with a birthday cake which was special. Highly recommend this resort for any occasion. We can understand why it's... More

My husband and I spent the first 4 days of our honeymoon here. It was simply perfect; everything a honeymoon should be. The staff and service are world class and the food was great. The casitas were gorgeous and secluded. Great excursions available. The best hotel I've ever stayed at and well deserving of it's awards and distinctions. Highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I spent 6 nights recently. It was pretty much perfect. We arranged activities through the front desk for each day - all went perfectly. The food is excellent - dinner will run around $70-100 for 2 using the daily specials and a little more a la carte - but they were consistently excellent so much that we... More

My husband and I stayed at Nayara Hotel back in April of 2012 to celebrate our 20th anniversary. It was an amazing experience ! The hotel staff did a great job of welcoming us upon our arrival. We were greeted with "welcome drinks" as soon as we got there. The staff were always courteous and very helpful. Our Nayara Suite... More

We spent 3 nights at the Nayara Hotel earlier this month. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The staff is super friendly and the service is amazing. The rooms are very large and have all the amenities. When we arrived we were surprised to see they gave us a room with 2 beds instead of 1 king. They took care of... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Nayara for our honeymoon before moving on to Tamarindo. I have to admit, I was blown away by this hotel. It was positioned right next to the Arenal volcano and this allowed for a breathtaking view from our bungalow every morning. We were lucky enough to be assigned to a bungalow that... More

Where do I begin? This is one of the nicest resorts we have ever stayed in. From the staff to the rooms to the restaurants, spa and all it is truly the best in the area. We stayed in # 39 - Nayara Suite is was a great location. Every Nayara Suite on the property is incredible. The Casitas are... More

We spent 3 nights at Nayara, and enjoyed it immensely: the outdoor jacuzzi, private porch with hammock, outdoor shower, comfortable bed, and cabin-like feel of our room combined to give us the impression of solitude when we were "at home," without making us feel too isolated. The pool - with a swim-up bar - was a good place to hang... More

Unique boutique bungalow style hotel surrounded in lush local vegetations. Large rooms with especially nice bathrooms. Convenient location to La Fortuna and area attractions especially if you have a car. Very friendly staff and a clean facility worth staying.
