This was by far the best place I have ever stayed at. From the employees at the front desk, the to servers at the restaurant, to the grounds people, everyone was awesome. We spent 4 night here before seeing a different part of Costa Rica, but I didn't want to leave. The front desk people helped find us things to...

This is one of the most peaceful hotels I have ever stayed in. Why? The resort is beautifully set into the natural environment, the grounds beautifully landscaped and maintained impeccably. I took so many photos of the flowers and foliage and framed several when I returned home. The rooms are placed in such a way as to enhance privacy, making...

We stayed here one evening as part of our honeymoon in Costa Rica. We stayed in the Nayara Suite that had an outdoor shower, indoor shower and an outdoor Jacuzzi. The best part of the hotel was the beautiful feel of the outdoor space part of the suite. During our one night the afternoon rain was very soothing. Breakfast buffet...

I recently read Travel and Leisure rated this the #4 hotel in the world and it's every bit deserving. My wife and I went for our 10 year honeymoon. The service was incredible. We were greeted with warm vanilla towels and 2 glasses of wine within a minute of stepping into the lobby. Then we were picked up on a...

This is the first review we have ever done on a resort however; our stay was so gracious we were compelled to write our first critique. We stayed at Nayara for five nights but our experience of service started months before we booked our stay. From the beginning, during our inquiries through the on-line chat with Carlos, we knew we...

When I travel, I prefer to not build up lofty expectations about hotels or destinations. I like to keep a clear head so I can form my own views. With Nayara, I was unable to do that. After reading all of the excellent reviews, I had extremely high expectations for this resort. Nayara met and exceeded all of my expectations....

We were lucky enough to have spent five days here and it was by far one of the more beautiful, romantic and amazing delightful places that we have ever been in the world.

We honeymooned at Nayara and absolutely loved everything about it! We had a villa with amazing views of the volcano, awesome layout, spacious, clean and modern. Everyday we would come back to our room and there would be something special done for us- flower petals on the bed, towels folded into animal shapes, treats etc. The restaurants on the resort...
