Beautiful hotel. Loved everything about it. Highly recommend this hotel for a romantic vacation. The grounds are lush and beautiful. The view of the volcano is unbeatable. Tub and hammock on the decks are icing on the cake.

Went to this hotel after seeing it at one of the trip advisor's top ten lists. I think it was a best service list or something. The list was right, the service was excellent but there's way more to it than just good service. The people, the food, the pools, the rooms it all worked together to make you feel...

We returned about a week ago from 4 nights at Nayara and in all truthfullness I can not think of one negative aspect of this magnificent resort. 1) The rooms. Spotless without any signs of wear. Beautiful teak floors and furniture. The tropical flowers surrounding the deck gives a sense of privacy and beauty. Special mention has to be made...

Words can't describe how wonderful this hotel was during the first 4 days of our honeymoon. I get butterflies just thinking about it! From the moment we arrived (and they greeted us with a wet cloth and glass on wine) we knew we were going to love it here. The bungalow we stayed in was just perfect and impeccably clean....

The Hotel Arenal Nayara surpassed all expectations we had and after reading all the reviews, our expectations were high. I've never felt so cared for at any hotel I've ever been to - literally. I 100% recommend them. I want to thanks for al request that we did at www.hotelarenalnayara.com before our arriving.

My husband and I visited Nayara for the first part of our 10-day stay in Costa Rica. We were drawn to the area because of the Arenal Volcano, which the resort promised amazing views of - and delivered on.

We stayed in a Casita Deluxe for 4 nights during August 2013 and were overall pleased with the experience.

Not a perfect five. Our expectations were for perfection because of all of the glowing accolades on Trip Advisor and in the major travel magazines. We spent six days and nights in a Nayara Suite.
