My husband and I stayed at the Nayara for 4 nights earlier this month as a belated honeymoon. We've stayed at 5 star hotels before but this outshone many of them.
From the moment we arrived the staff were nothing but welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The beautiful setting, gardens and luxurious understated decor make for a lovely peaceful retreat.
Our room was incredible, with great views of the volcano (unfortunately it was covered by cloud for 75% of our stay) and fab deck equipped with hot tub and hammock (which aided a jet lagged snooze).
The location of the hotel is great for tours of the volcano, trips to the nearby hot springs and day tours to Cano Negro. We had pre-booked our tours via our agent but if we hadn't, the hotel were happy to recommend and organise similar trips. Taxis into town are reasonably priced and are easy to order and only take 10minute to town.
We used the restaurant a couple of nights and couldn't fault the service received. Breakfast was also excellent, we liked the freshness and variety available each morning. Happy hour cocktails were also excellent value.
I took a facial at the spa which was lovely and great value compared to those received at English spas and salons.
This was the first stop on our 2 week trip and a perfect way to unwind after a long journey and busy time at work. We will definitely be returning to Costa Rica in the future and will be booking the Nayara again.
