The Nayara is simply a fantastic resort close to La Fortuna, the waterfall and the Arenal Park. The resort has several restaurants with a great variety of menues and very delicious food! Sometimes, the dinner is accompanied by a life band. One of the most nicest pool bars we've ever seen is also part of the resort. We especially want...

The Nayara is a truly special place. I was contacted by Carlos, one of the concierges at the hotel, prior to our arrival. Carlos suggested activities, booked them and arranged our transportation from San Jose to Nayara. From the minute our driver picked us up in San Jose until he delivered us to the hotel we knew that this place...

We visited April 20 - 24 and had a great time. The concierge was very helpful with everything from check-in to check-out. We took several tours arranged by them. Our favorite was the Mystico Bridges guided by Edson. This is a first rate resort with great pools, bars, etc. The accomodations could not be nicer, and the staff was very...

We stayed at Nayara for the first 5 days of our honeymoon, our first trip to Costa Rica, and could not have asked for anything more. The staff, facilities, food, & activities went beyond expectations!

This is a lovely hotel/resort. Loved the outdoor shower! Had a great aromatherapy massage. The smell of ginger and flowers was everywhere, so it's perfect for a romantic get away. Do not stay in casita 16 though. The deck there is NOT private in the least!

First the ground make you feel that you are in the middle of a rain forest (ok not all trees are native and it is clearly planted, but still very nice and classy). Secondly, our room was one of the best I have stayed in. Lots of room, great amenities, but the highlight was sitting on the back deck listening...

An incredibly beautiful resort with so many stunning views of the Arenal area. Our enormous, very private casita had a wonderful view of the volcano. The service is impeccable and the food delicious. A highlight is the wildlife in living in the preserve of the resort. We saw a sloth and several hummingbirds. A perfect couple's getaway.

Over the last few years my wife and I have had the privilege of doing a bit of traveling and since the beginning, we've had one rule, we both agreed not to return to the same location twice.
