I cannot say enough good things about this place. This was without a doubt one of the nicest places I've ever stayed at for multiple reasons. The grounds are lush and beautiful. They must do some major insect control. You can hear the bugs. There are lots of them and they are loud. Yet we were never bit by one....

We just got home from 6 nights at this amazing beautiful and serene hotel. Can't say enough good things about it and we are a hard crowd to please. We went with our two teenage boys (16 and 14). Upon arrival they upgraded us to the rainforest villa bc of our AMEX platinum card. The villa was beautiful! We loved...

Everything here exceeded our expectations. Beautiful resort - dreamy atmosphere. Spa was amazing, breakfast was really great, yoga classes were well done. All the restaurants we tried were delicious and the employees were extremely helpful!..Seriously, no reason to question staying here- just do it.

We loved, loved, loved this resort! It's simply beautiful and luxurious! We stayed here upon the recommendation of some friends and it exceeded all expectations.

I've travelled the world and search out the best places for my accommodations. Nayara is hands down the best experience I've had to date! The attention to detail and love for Costa Rica at this resort surpasses any other place I've ever been to. Pictures cannot do this place any justice. You have to visit and see and experience everything...

We booked a standard room at Nayara in December. There is nothing standard about this beautiful property. The rooms are amazing.

This place is top dollar luxury. From amazing rooms, grounds (with the occasional sloth hanging around!), service, attention to detail, and amenities. I loved the Quiet pool particularly. This place is perfect for a honeymoon, with lots of privacy, private jacuzzis and hidden corners.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in March 2017 and were very impressed by the service, grounds and amenities.
