We stayed at the Nayara as a pre honeymoon location on Oct 28th to Nov 2nd. What can we say that has not been said before.
For us what was most impressive was the friendliness and service of the staff. Special shout-outs to Randall and Jonny at the swim-up bar. Their smiles and service made our many visits there a special treat. Another shout-out to Jonathon for his everyday smiles and waves and attentiveness to our needs.
We had a fabulous couples massage at the spa which the memory still lingers in our head. The volcanic mud massage was a very sensual experience and the couples shower afterwards was very fun.
Having worked as a caterer I know the difficulties that can crop up with trying to please everyone with food. Let me tell you that our dinner was devine. The beef tenderloin was tender and tasty, the wine delicious and the cake trolley was fun and yummy. The daily breakfast was varied and serenely served. Special items was the well prepared omelete from omelete bar and the pastries, yum, yum! Service was attentive and expert and all with a smile and great sense of humor. The food and beverage manager (I forget his name, sorry), was a lot of fun, thank you for your sense of humor and personality!
I could go on and on about the room, but all I will say is it was fantastic! We were in Casita 13 and the view and privacy was sublime.
Please let us tell the complete staff, Pedro, Lupe, Carlotta y Lee (the birds) the bunnies a heartfelt thank you for your part in making our four days there a memorable and sensual time. We hope to return and again enjoy your special place on earth, Paz, Lloyd and Joyce
