Dined here last night and everything we had was incredible. We had the daily specials and the chefs knows how to create a balanced and delicious dish. Our server was friendly and attentive. Over all a great experience and worth the visit.

When we stayed 3 days in Nayara we had every day excellent buffet breakfast and also we had dinner in Altamira. The cuisine is modern costarican/latinamercian. We enjoyed Altamira a lot. It is the best and most friendly service we have experienced in Costa Rica....More
