For background, we had done a 17 night trip throughout Costa Rica. During our trip, we stayed at other properties such as Andaz Peninsula Papagayo, Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo, and El Silencio Lodge & Spa – were going to stay at Hacienda Altagracia, but they are currently closed going a change of management.

That being said, Nayara Resort was hands down our family's favorite property - even beating out the Four Seasons.

The rooms are all well-equipped with all of the amenities that you would expect from a polished, 5* property. The service is fantastic and attentive. The complimentary yoga is a great bonus and wonderful way to set the tone for the day. The food was also incredible throughout the resort - including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Our family has vegetarians that call for picky eating and the chefs were so accommodating.

All in all, if we were to revisit Costa Rica, we would make it a point to stay again at Nayara Resort.

Dear yb2971,

What a wonderful trip with your family! We are so thrilled you included Nayara in your family vacation and the fact that you named us your favorite means so much to us. You are correct; our yoga in the rainforest is a spectacular way to start every day. We can't wait to welcome you and your family back to Nayara!

Pura Vida!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. Excellent breakfast buffet. Room tidied twice/day. Relaxing hammock on the balcony. Very comfy bed with soft sheets. Secluded villas - couldn't see or hear our neighbors.

Room tip: Enjoy the bedside cookies each night! Nice touch.

We stayed 4 days at Nayara Gardens and loved every minute !

The villas are up there among the best accommodations we have ever stayed.

The property is immerse in a manicured tropical gardens which looks like a Gauguin painting. The food is sensational every bite you take is a taste of nature.

However the best feature of this resort (apart from a breathtaking view of Arenal vulcano) is the genuine friendliness of the staff who take pleasure in making sure your stay is one you will never forget. A big thumbs up from us.

Nayara Resort is an oasis in the Rain forest if there is such a thing. From the moment of arrival welcomed by a cool beverage to our departure, everything was a delight. The staff was helpful and informative and booked all of our excursions. The rooms...OMG, fantastic! The balcony is right in the middle of what feels like the jungle. I found myself hanging out in the hammock all the time. Loved the outdoor shower option. Every single food entity we visited was first class quality and service. You have to make yourself leave to go for an activity, but you could easily stay at the resort and never leave. Exceptional Spot!
