The Nayara Resort is a unique experience. Each room is a separate casita, offering privacy and a feeling of remoteness....even though all the rooms are clustered and close. The grounds are simply amazing, like walking through a rainforest with paved trails. Upon arrival we immediately were able to see sloths in the trees. The food is a good mix of...

Nayara has great service, food and staff. It was a great experience all around. Ask the bellman to take you around at night in a golf cart looking for frogs and in the day for sloths! This hotel is the perfect spot to launch all of your adventures from and it's superb to come back and relax in this oasis...

My husband and I loved the Nayara so much that this was our second stay at this beautiful property. The staff is just amazing, the grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are out of a dream. Both our stays were for anniversaries. I let the staff know this upon booking and we entered our room to a bottle of champagne,...

We spent 3 amazing nights as a couple and had a wonderful experience despite rain. (You're in a rain forest.) We arrived early at 9:00 am, many hours before check in, and we were invited to indulge in their amazing breakfast bonanza. Not even the Ritz Carlton would offer that kind of generosity to early arrivals. The welcome drink was...

This place is NOT low end, but the service and offering matches the price. Rooms were wonderful and well equipped bungalow's, and the private secluded deck had a direct view of the volcano. Just wonderful and you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle. Wine bar was a great and the two staff (Erik and El Orion...

We absolutely loved this resort! Staff was super friendly and attentive especially in the restaurants. Rooms are spacious, we had a family of four and had plenty of space. Property and pools are beautiful and volcano views are amazing. Definitely recommend!

What a great experience. The service here is personal and everyone remembers your name and things you like. We loved our rainforest villa room. Great private deck with forest views. The resort is overall fabulous. The food is consistent with the exception of the Mediterranean restaurant which was odd. Pools are lovely and have great swim up bars and you...

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, everything is top notch. The service is impeccable, from the front desk, bellman, housekeeping and waiters, everyone is always kind and polite. The service staff goes out of their way to please you. If you don't see something on the menu, then just ask. If it's possible, they will...

We stayed here for almost a week with our 2 kids, and did day trips from the resort. Things are still fresh in my mind so I will try to do a thorough review below. I will say that my review is colored by the fact that we were here for quite a while, if we only stayed for 2/3...

One of the best hotels I have stayed in; a stunning property with individual chalets in exquisite, extensive grounds containing pools, fountains, a shop, spa, gym and yoga area amidst beautiful walkways, including an armadillo sanctuary. The breakfast is faultless and I love the doggy bags provided to encourage taking supplies for the day. We ate in the wine bar...
