My husband and I stayed at Nayara Resort in a Casita Deluxe the end of January for 5 nights. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary! There is nothing more that I can add to the 5 star reviews that hasn't already been mentioned and I agree with what other people have said. Our Casita was beautiful, the...

My husband and I stayed at Nayara for our honeymoon in February 2017. I can honestly say that it was the best hotel we have ever stayed in! We stayed for 4 nights, which was enough time to see a lot of the Arenal region, but I would have loved to stay another night just to have some more time...

Yes, this hotel is very very expensive but also SO romantic and special. Get a villa! Our jaws dropped as we walked into Villa 7 and realized this would be our home for 5 days. The room, more like a mini house, was comfortable, stacked with juices, beer, rum, snacks and fruit (replenished daily), it had its own natural spring...

Staffs were trying so hard to serve / make good memories for guests and they kindly upgraded us to a villa. They even set our bed with a happy birthday card and provided the cake upon departure. Good pool and just everything was mind blowing. I thought I would come back here regularly however, sadly the departure experience tainted our...

This property is magical and the staff beyond exceptional. We ended our stay last in Costa Rica last June at Nayara, and as a family of 4 with an 11-year-old and a 14-year-old, we were unsure it Nayara would be a good fit because it is billed as a romantic location. The property is divided into two distinct areas, so...

Private casitas are nestled in lushly landscaped property in the shadow of the arenal volcano of Costa Rica. Follow the footpaths and discover 5 restaurants, a prize winning spa, 2 swimming pools, hot tubs, a shelter for yoga, another for cooking lessons, fish ponds, coffee house, gift shop, and more. There are actually 2 parts to this resort. One part...

Spent three nights here but would have liked to stay longer. This property is amazing from the friendly and helpful staff to the tropical jungle setting. Initially the casita they put us in was too close to the pool so we asked if there were other options. Without hesitation they upgraded us for one night into a larger casita. The...

Nayara truly was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, anywhere. The staff is superb and will accommodate pretty much anything, the grounds are beautiful. Stayed for 5 nights and definitely did not want to leave. Would certainly return.

This resort is AMAZING! Rooms are super private and the staff is incredible. Miguel and Noily at the front desk were incredibly helpful and made us feel at home from the start. Amazing service, very private and gorgeous rooms. Great breakfast included with fresh fruits and delicious coffee. While at the resort we got to see sloths and some really...

Nayara property is absolutely beautiful. You will not soon forget the opulence of the pathways filled with every tropical plant and flower imaginable. Many reviews speak of getting a volcano view. We had a volcano view and quite frankly it is mostly cloudy in the morning and you will most likely not see the volcano anyway. Further, you will see...
