From the moment we arrived at the Nayara Hotel, we were greeted by welcoming smiles and service beyond our expectations. The staff was ready to answer all our questions and made sure we were comfortable in our casita. Our room was more than we could've hoped for with surprises in every corner including a beautiful private outdoor shower, a private...

We wrapped up our 8 day Costa Rica vacation with 3 days at Nayara. I can safely say that it was the most wonderful hotel stay I've ever had, the room, the grounds, the staff, the food... all A+! The room- We stayed in a suite which was one of the most beautiful rooms I've ever seen! Our suite was...

I chose Nayara because I was attracted to the Arenal Volcano, the rainforest terrain and the fact that Nayara boasts a world-class spa. Indeed, there are multitudes of wonderful areas to visit in Costa Rica, but this is undoubtedly a little piece of heaven on earth. Verdant doesn't begin to describe the area surrounding Fortuna. Nayara's architects coax the lush...

This hotel/resort is amazing! Well worth the price. What stands out most to me was the staff. Extraordinarily helpful and friendly. Made my whole family feel like VIPs! We arrived from Montezuma after several hours of travel and unfortunately my husband suffers from motion sickness. He arrived not in a good state at all. The staff were all so concerned...

During our stay the hotel was filled with couples on their honeymoons, which is understandable. The rooms have a secluded feeling and amazing views that just make you want to enjoy the company on your companion. We stayed in the Nayara suite, and when we go back would love to upgrade to the Springs Villa (which was unavailable when we...

Wonderful small hotel, each casitas is secluded in the jungle/landscaping blocking your view of anything but the volcano & the jungle. Rooms have a tall thatched roof, the bed is mahogany 4 poster W/ mosquito net, indoor & outdoor shower, and a jacuzzi on the deck. Very romantic and relaxing. We had a tour scheduled everyday & when we returned,...

I have had the pleasure to stay at Nayara twice now, and both times it was wonderful! It is named one of the most romantic hotels in the world for a reason! The property is stunning, the view of the volcano is breathtaking. We stayed in a Casita Deluxe each time, and next time I would love to upgrade to...

CNN listed this as a top 10 world wide. No doubt about it. The location is something else, the food is simple exemplary and the service is 5 star without doubt. Every member of the org was kind, helpful and ensured we enjoyed our time.

We came here for the first leg of our honeymoon. First, a word of warning. We flew into the capital, and the ride to the resort from the airport was about three hours. If you can get past that fact, you are in for one of the most gorgeous resorts I have ever seen. It is nestled in the rainforest...

We LOVED staying at Nayara for our honeymoon. Our driver from the capital to the resort was wonderful...very friendly, accommodating, and he stopped often on the trip there and back to look for wildlife! We saw a sloth, lots of birds, and a coati. He answered all the questions we had about his beloved country. As everyone else has said,...
