Nayara it's absolutely amazing. The location is beyond perfect, you can see the arenal volcano from everywhere. The gardens are beautiful. We stay at a nayara suite, this room was mind blowing, super luxurious and comfortable. Best costumer service ever, the staff really makes you feel at home. Food is delicious and really fresh. Nayara is worth the money

We stayed at Nayara for three nights in April 2013. The location is a few miles outside Fortuna, which has lots of restaurants, tour companies, shopping, and not far from the Arenal volcano. One clear morning, we had a great view of Arenal from the open-air dining room. The service at Nayara was fantastic, everyone was very friendly, and spoke...

Everything about this was excellent: service, food, location, etc. The people are friendly and helpful. Every wonderful thing said in other reviews is correct. We had a view of the Arenal Volcano. There was a jacuzzi on our deck.

Arrival: Once you arrive at Nayara's secluded resort, a concierge greets you personally the minute you step out of your vehicle. We were met with a cold drink, and after checking in, we set up...

Arenal Nayara is the best resort we have visited. From the time you arrive until you depart, the staff goes above and beyond to make your vacation memorable.
