While we were checking in the reception desk asked if we were celebrating anything special and we said in a few days it was my husband's birthday, but didn't think anything of it, because we would be leaving before then. They said our room would be ready in about 10 minutes. When we walked in they had red roses and...

Nayara is fabulous. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are gorgeous and look out onto amazing vistas. Total privacy, no need to keep the drapes closed unless you want to keep out the light. The food is outstanding. The staff is friendly, courteous, well informed about all aspects of the location and options for tours. I never heard anything from...

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights during our honeymoon and the staff really made us feel special. The service is personalized, and they help arrange ANYTHING you need/want. The rooms were VERY clean (amazing what kind of animals they can create with the towels) and HUGE! the hammock outside the room was so nice, being able...

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. We had a wonderful experience despite some rain. The room was great with a beautiful view of the volcano. The food was good and the service was great. The new villas are over the top wonderful.

We arrived around 12:30 PM and the front desk said our room was just about ready. We went to have lunch in their restaurant while we waited. At first we were told we would be in Suite 30 but ended up in 29, which was fine. After lunch we were driven to our room with our luggage in a golf...

I had read such out of this world reviews and seen such a super high rating for Nayara that maybe I set my expectations too high. The bungalow was very nice, but surrounded on both sides by similar bungalows about 6 feet from ours. Foliage gave us a fair amount of privacy, but we could easily hear every word spoken...

This hotel was an absolute dream come true! From the his/her vanities, and the amazing views, the outdoor shower, the balcony jacuzzi, and amazing staff- this hotel deserves every award out there!

Nayara is simply phenomenal. Every single member of the staff we met was incredibly polite and helpful. The food at the restaurants was amazing as was the waitstaff. I mentioned a food allergy during our first meal and the waitstaff remembered for the remainder of our stay and ensured I didn't get anything (even during buffet breakfasts) that would have...

Can't find one even slightly critical thing to say. This place is crazy amazing. As I sit here finishing one of the best dinners I've ever eaten. The guitar plays softly in the background, the candles flickers and the moon rises. The room is better than can be had in the US. The spa is beyond compare. You need to...
