We stayed at the Nayara for 4 nights at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel grounds, rooms and surrounding scenery were amazing! We stayed in a suite, which was perfect - huge open layout, outdoor shower, enormous private balcony with a great view of the volcano and a jacuzzi. There were so many little details the...

Having traveled extensively over the years, we rarely find a place that exceeds our expectations. Nayara did just that. The staff was exceptional. The young man at the pool, knowing we were interested in wildlife, called our room two different times, first to let us know there was a 3-toed sloth by the pool and the second time to let...

A wonderful place for couples - no children here. Very nice, very private bungalows. Great service, beautiful grounds. The one hour couples hot stone massage was something to remember. Many nearby activities. Highly recommended.

I first stayed here in spring 2009 and then again in fall 2009. This hotel is fantastic! The room was very spacious, impeccably clean, and provided great solitude for relaxing. Great layout and comforts. The property is lush and vibrant with local birds and creatures. You can see the volcano in the distance as well (great pics)! I recommend this...

Wonderful hotel, beautiful spot and close to all kinds of adventures. Breakfast was really great and the service is unbelievable. We travelled with two boys and we all had a blast, ziplining, hanging bridges, ATV all close by. But truth be told, hotel is ideally for couples, very romantic.

This place is a slice of heaven. I hate to sound so cliche, but what more can be said about this beautiful hotel that hasn't been said already. My wife and I stayed at Nayara for 5 beautiful nights and wish we would had stayed longer. The hotel staff is amazing! I mean really amazing! Everyone is so friendly and...

This place is truly amazing. Each villa has the utmost privacy and even if the resort is full, you never feel like its busy at all. A quiet oasis to return to after the day out exploring. Highly recommend the wine paring dinner, happy hour at the sushi restaurant and taking the organized tours. Service was amazing, people are very...

Nayara is special. Dream like grounds with exotic flowers, lush foliage, wonderful nature paths all running up against the Arenal Volcano. Lovely spacious private villas with outside showers, jacuzzi, hammock. Amazing outside yoga classes in a Japanese style pagoda or treat yourself to a massage in a "treehouse"-like setting. Try the romantic wine bar, the lucious sushi bar or have...

My husband and I stayed at Nayara to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. This place was amazing! The resort was beautiful. You're literally in the middle of the rainforest. The service was wonderful and professional. "Daniella" at the help desk was so nice and helped us with anything we needed. "Byron" was the manager of the restaurant by the pool....

I waited to write this review because I was looking to gather my thoughts - how to capture what a great experience this was. I travel a lot. This was one of my BEST experiences EVER in my life. We left and traveled around CR, and were so let down after our 4 days at Nayara - because nothing compared....
