My husband and I stayed in Nayara for the first half of our honeymoon and it was incredible. From the time we pulled up to the front entrance we were treated like royalty. Reynoldo greeted us with a genuine smile and took our bags He remembered our names throughout our stay always happy and smiling. Sharon greeted us with such... More

There are many places to stay in the Arenal area, but I can't imagine a better hotel. From the initial greeting when we arrived to the final check out, all of the staff were wonderful. First, our room. Very spacious with a king-sized bed, a sitting room, a very large bathroom area, two-headed shower indoors, an outdoor shower (I LOVED... More

One of the most breathe taking hotels I have ever visited. The staff is so friendly, Ronaldo and Alexander were the best! The owner, Angelo, was super nice as well. Great breakfast every morning. The natural hot springs was so cool and the pool area has a great vibe. Overall, if you are in the Arenal/La Fortuna area for vacation,... More

This is a lovely hotel with excellent service. We arranged an airport pickup in San Jose through the hotel. We were picked up in a large 4x4 with a nice driver. He offered a lunch stop on the way in a popular restaurant. The hotel is villa styles, each with privacy and nice balconies in the trees. We saw lots... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Nayara on our honeymoon in mid-June. It was hands down the best place I have ever stayed! Our room was beautiful with a great view of the volcano, an outdoor jacuzzi, beautiful wood floors, and large space. It looks just like the pictures if not better! The staff was so friendly and...

I am speechless when writing my review for Nayara. Angelo, the owner of the hotel, greeted us when we arrived. Drinks and cold towels were served to us. The rooms were beautiful. The pool and hot springs make the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and so are the different restaurants. Alexander helped all of us while we were there. His... More

Arenal was the last stop on our honeymoon trip in Costa. We flew into San Jose and grabbed a rental car (highly recommended - it's an easy drive). Our room had a beautiful view of the volcano, which we saw clearly saw for most of our 2 night stay! It is no wonder this place has constant 5 star reviews... More

My boyfriend and i went in January 2015 and I had fallen in love with the hotel through pictures but when seeing the really thing was jaw dropping maybe because it was my first experience staying in a Luxury hotel. What sold me was the outside shower which to me was a unique experience. We has a private bungalow with... More

This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in. My boyfriend and I visited the Arenal area in June and found out about Nayara through American Express. We stayed in a couples "casita" room and upon arrival were greeted with drinks and a sloth sighting. The room was incredible with nice lighting and a volcano view. The... More
