This place has it all. Feels intimate but functions with all the amenities of a large resort. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Bungalows were clean, beautiful and luxurious. We went as a family of 4, 2 adults, 2 teenagers although extremely family friendly the atmosphere was sophisticated which the our kids loved. Would go back again!!!

From the beginning to the end; they take care of their clients. God is in details and so is this place. We stayed at Villa #12 and it was perfect; just like to you see in pictures! The Chef at Mis Amore cooks with love. The private guide Edson is a must! He gave us the best tour with a...

We booked our Nayara Hotel Stay through Tom Varghese of Travel Tom agency. I am not writing this to promote Tom, however, Tom knows the ins and outs of the resort scenes. When we told Tom our requirements, he immediately suggested Nayara Hotel. And he was absolutely spot on!! The rooms and casitas are spacious, beautifully appointed and most of...

Background: Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens is listed as a separate hotel from Nayara Springs, but they are both part of the same grounds and guests can come and go between them and their respective facilities/restaurants freely. Don't feel you need to decide between the two - the feeling is of one big resort. Pro's: the grounds are wonderful! Beautiful,...

Great service and beautiful room and hotel grounds. Beautiful Spa and excellent massage. Restaurant food was just ok but you get a beautiful view of Arenal volcano. I highly suggest this resort if you plan to visit Arenal.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. We had a gorgeous balcony with a hammock and an amazing outdoor shower. The grounds are pristine and peaceful, you are literally surrounded by lush rainforest and vibrant exotic plants and flowers. We saw plenty of hummingbirds and toucans.The service was excellent as was the breakfast...

It is a very special place. The villas are exceptional. Sleeping with open doors in beautiful nature but well protected against moscitos and insects. The whole staff is excellent trained in fullfilling the needs of the guests. Big compliment. The SPA and Garden rooms are also really beautiful. The only disadvantage was in room no 03 the noise from the...

Dear Esse2017, Thank you so much for all your wonderful compliments. We are thrilled that you loved your stay, and that you felt that your casita was “exceptional”. Sorry to learn that there was some noise from a neighboring villa. We hate to hear that anything interrupted you from your total immersion in the rain forest. Tranquility is a pillar...

Yes, this is a lovely spot. And it's well located for the Arenal volcano, with associated activities. And the grounds (including the associated Springs - adult only) are beautiful and even have a lot of interesting wildlife right there (saw a sloth from the parking lot). And the food is excellent. But the thing that makes this place stand out...

Exceeded all our expectations, gorgeous place! We loved the private outdoor jacuzzis and the spa (great staff!). If you don't get to see the volcano because of the weather ( most likely), you can still have a wonderful time.

We wanted a nice, casual get away and we certainly got it. This place is outstanding. We stayed in Casita #21. This Casita has a great view of the volcano, although it was a little noisy at times. It is close to the check in area, close to the restaurants on site, and the pools. The staff were second to...
