Cannot fault anything with our stay at Nayara. Rooms were excellent. The choice of restaurants was really good. Staff were extremely helpful. We even saw a Sloth with a baby within the resort grounds and gardens

Such a beautiful resort. The staff was fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Rainforest Villa and the room was amazing. Beautiful private balcony with a great view, Fun outdoor shower, comfy bed. The only downside, which is very small, plants kept dropping on the roof and were quite loud so maybe bring earplugs...

This is a largish hotel, attracting mainly American and British visitors. The rooms are laid out in individual bungalows, which, although they are pretty closely packed, have extremely clever tropical planting to maintain privacy. Rooms are large, airy and clean, with an outdoor private spa on the balcony overlooking the volcano. The main dining/breakfast room is large, but well serviced....

Great hotel with Casitas, as the detached villas are called, in lush colourful gardens. A number of restaurants and last night we went to Asian Fusion which was spectacularly good. They have a lovely wine bar as well where there are many wines you can taste. We did a hike into Volcano reserve which was stunning. As usual in Costa...

This is one beautiful resort that should not be missed. The villa was exquisite with flowers and plantings surrounding it such that you could not see neighboring villas. The food was exceptional as was the service. Staff were friendly and could not do enough to make our stay pleasant.

Staff at the Nayara manage to make everyone feel special, which is quite a feat considering that they are busy and have a constant turnover of guests. The public areas are all very smart and attractive and there is always someone to help you if needed. Rooms are each in a separate lodge spread along alleyways through the verdant gardens...

Dear Doug, I am glad you enjoyed all of the dining options on property. The Costa Rican hospitality is something that can not be interchanged and every guest is treated as they are VIP. I am sorry about the problem of the drains, we are currently working on fixing this issue. Pura Vida, Jairo Quesada Resident Manager

My wife and I, tired of the Caribbean, decided to try Costa Rica and found Nayara online. We were not disappointed. The rainforest villa was roomy, comfortable and private. We used the Jacuzzi on the porch more than a few times. The grounds are stunning and the view of the volcano is breathtaking. I can say enough about the staff...
