The villas at Nayara Springs were the most beautiful accommodations! The staff at this resort are the most welcoming hospitable people I have ever met. They did everything possible to make our anniversary trip perfect. From the food to the gardens to even the maid service, everything exceeded our expectations. Two things I highly recommend while there are booking a...

Your stay starts with a cool refreshing drink while sitting outside receiving the keys to your room. It ended with an early morning drive to the airport and boxes filled with treats as we would be missing breakfast. In between it is a place of perfection. The rooms lack nothing. They are large, clean, spacious, and extremely well appointed, You...

This place is amazing. As others have said the villas are beautiful and the view of Arenal Volcano is amazing. The house keeping services were top notch and they paid attention to every detail when cleaning. The room was beautiful - looks exactly like the pictures--and I slept like a baby every night (this is big-I am usually a terrible...

I will add to the superlatives of others. Nayara Springs is a special place: fabulous service by a friendly and authentic staff, spacious rooms with total privacy, and a gorgeous setting. I hope to return!

This resort is truly amazing. The grounds are impeccable and the staff is so great. My wife and I can't wait to go back! The only downside is there may be teens at the adult pools... and possibly smaller kids at dinner. Also, there is a sloth!

We recently returned from Nayara Springs where we stayed for 3 nights as part of our Costa Rica tour. It was the second trip there for my partner who stayed on the other side of the resort the first time. It is also beautiful but NS is absolutely remarkable. The service(particularly by Michael and Maricela at reception), the lush gardens,...

I did leave the rooms, of course, but I was always glad to get back. It's a shame that one cannot give more than a five-star rating, because that limitation does this place a disservice. I won't repeat what all the other reviews say about the facility or the appointment of the villas. They are terrific. We used most of...

This was our second visit to Nayara. The lush gardens, private modern villas with mineral pools, and great staff have not changed. In the past year, they have built a separate reception, a coffee shop, and a new restaurant and have brought in new chefs. These are all great improvements. While we were there, they were in the process of...
