This hotel lives up to its reputation! It was the high point of our trip to CR. I recommend staying here the entire time or towards the end of your trip so you are not disappointed with the next hotel. Supposedly the hotel was full when we were there, and it felt very private. The grounds were impeccable. The bungalow was exquisite and intimate. It had gorgeous colorful glass windows in the master bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, a canopy bed with sheer drapes, and a outdoor jacuzzi. The staff anticipated your every move. I was randomly speaking with a staff member at the pool about not having seen a sloth yet. When I arrived at the reception Bismark was waiting with a golf cart and a telescope to show us one! ALL of the food was fresh and the prices were incredibly reasonable. I recommend the ceviche. We brought our children ages 7 and 9, and they also had a fabulous time. As far as tours go, I recommend Don Juan Finca (Organic Farm Tour with lunch) and Asis Project (Animal Rescue Center). Yadira in the spa has over 20 years of experience. Do not miss the spa, it is a very special experience. There is no doubt that we will be returning to Nayara.

We LOVED our stay here!!! The grounds are beautiful, blending in well with the natural forest surroundings. On a clear morning the view of the volcano is breathtaking. Our room exceeded our expectations. Private patio with hot tub, hammock and complete privacy provided by beautiful, lush landscape. The staff was always very helpful and professional. The restaurants were fabulous. We had the wine pairing dinner at their wine bar restaurant, Nostalgia, and was outstanding!! I will highly recommend Nayara to friends and family!!!!

Room Tip: We had a suite. It was very spacious. Large bedroom with private patio, which had a hot tub, hammock and seating area. It had an indoor and outdoor shower. His and her sink areas. Stocked minibar.

Simply put, the Nayara is exceptional! We drove right from the airport in San Jose after a red-eye flight to Nayara after picking up our rental car. The moment we arrived, it was clear that this experience would be special. They greeted us at our car, guided us to the restaurant which was still serving breakfast and took care of all of our bags. Breakfast was fantastic, and since we had gotten there so early, we had about an hour to wait for our room, so Juan took my wife, myself and our two boys in a golf cart to tour the property. When we got to a location where he knew one of their resident Sloth's would be in a tree, he had a telescope brought up to the location so my boys could see him! The service was exceptional from begging to end, with the most sincere and attentive staff I have ever seen. The room was perfect with a great view, amazing showers, in and out-door, and a great deck. More than enough room for all four of us. A lot of honeymooners and a younger crowd, however all of the families we spoke to felt just as welcome. Restaurants are great, wine bar is wonderful, bar in the pool is fantastic and a nice treat. We did not want to leave. One of the best Hotel experiences I have ever had.

The beauty of the rainforest and the majesty of Arenal towering overhead ... This refuge offers luxurious suites and delectable dining tucked in at the foot of a volcano. Service is exceptional and there are activities for all interests and ages. Charming town of La Fortuna is nearby. Recommend flying to the nearby airport vs driving from San Jose.

Without a doubt, the best place we have ever stayed. Pristine grounds, service is perfect, luxurious rooms, warm pools, a wine bar and more. The casita had an outdoor shower and an indoor which were both great. A big jacuzzi tub on patio, privacy, and large room. It was perfect.
Nayara has nice restaurants even if none are inexpensive. We loved every dinner. I wouldn't recommend this hotel as a kid friendly place, even though they do accommodate children. Most guests were couples and kids seemed forced to be calm and not being allowed to be excited. (By their parents, not hotel, so as to not annoy other guests)
