We stayed at one of the villas. The villa was spacious, secluded and surrounded by lush tropical vegetation. The beautiful wood deck leads you to an infinity pool/hot tub with hot springs water. It was paradise itself! The setting for breakfast was pretty incredible too (in one of the restaurants next to the pool). You could see the birds dashing...

Esteban has a wonderful eye for spotting animal life! We are glad that you took full advantage of our natural mineral thermal plunge pools in your villa. I am glad you enjoyed breakfast at Mis Amores! Pura Vida, Jairo Quesada Resident Manager

We arrived after a long transfer and from the moment of arrival the staff could not do enough to help. On arrival we received a complementary drink, a cold beer and rum cocktail before being whisked off to our Casita by Jose. Well it was perfect, a view of the volcano from the balcony which had a private jacuzzi and...

A lovely hotel with fantastic gardens and rooms. Plenty of grounds to walk around and lots to see. Sloths, birds, Raccoons etc All staff were very friendly and the tapas was good, in particular the cheese and meat board. Breakfast and evening meals were a little lacking in choice and quality.

Nayara Resort is a gorgeous place. The rooms are spacious and set in fabulous tropical gardens. The staff is exceptionally well trained to meet your every need. The resort works well for families since there are many side trips of interest as well as on-site activities.

My wife and I went to Nayara on a last-minute trip and stayed three nights. All of the staff, accommodations and food exceeded our very high expectations based on the reviews we had read. We will definitely be back... we visited in March, and my wife was already checking October availability on our way home. Muchas gracias y pura vida!

Totally amazing! Enjoyed every minute of our 4 night stay! Wine pairing dinner at Nostalgia wine bar and romantic dinner in the private pavilion were spectacular! Our guides for tours of hanging bridges and lava fields were extremely knowledgeable. Transportation arranged by resort from/to airport made the experience stress free. Accommodations and staff are 5 star.
