My wife and I had our three 20 something sons and two girlfriends here for four nights, and it was wonderful for all. The gardens the hotel is arranged in are amazing. We hit a few very rainy days to start, but it was so beautiful with all the flowering rain forest birds and flowers that we didn't care. Then...

From start to finish, Nayara hotel has truly surpassed all expectations and has landed a special place in my heart as being my favorite hotel I've ever been to. Not only are the rooms and hotel location perfect, but the service was over-the-top perfect and all the staff was friendly. The wine bar is amazing so make sure to stop...

We booked this hotel through American Express Fine Hotels which came with a few perks (early check-in, late check-out, free room upgrade, free daily breakfast and Spa Credit). We enjoyed our Villa with a view of Arenal. Each room is...

Nayara Hotel was the first out of three that my husband and I stayed at for our 11-day honeymoon in Costa Rica. The price seemed a little steep until we arrived, and immediately we understood the value we were getting. The grounds are GORGEOUS. My husband does landscape maintenance and was very impressed with all of the hard work that...

The villas are out of this world with perfectly landscaped views of the rain forest, detailed trim work, WIFI, free international calls, inside & outside private showers, his & hers vanities, a comfortable bed, and satellite television. The cleaning staff came twice a day ensuring the room kept the highest standards. The natural hot spring spa on the balcony was...

They think of everything. When we arrived from a long drive they greeted us with a cool face towel and wine, beer or fresh juice. There are umbrellas at all doorways in case of a surprise rain shower. The casitas are beautiful, quiet and feel very secluded. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about tours and handled all scheduling of both...
