Nayara property is absolutely beautiful. You will not soon forget the opulence of the pathways filled with every tropical plant and flower imaginable. Many reviews speak of getting a volcano view. We had a volcano view and quite frankly it is mostly cloudy in the morning and you will most likely not see the volcano anyway. Further, you will see...

My husband and I have stayed at Nayara twice - once in April 2014 and a second time in May 2015, and it has set the bar for every other hotel we have stayed at since. Everything here is perfect. The rooms are amazing casitas nestled along private paths and surrounded by tropical foliage. You can sit on your private...

Stayed in the Springs Villas area, an adult only part of the hotel, and I think it was the best hotel stay we have ever had. Right from the moment we were welcomed with a choice of drink to the moment we left we were treated wonderfully by the helpful happy staff, but not in an over the top way...

I stayed here my first night in Costa Rica and my biggest complaint is it kinda ruined all the other places we stayed after. Everything was so nice and we felt so spoiled it was hard for the other places we stayed at to live up. The staff were all so helpful and went out of their way to make...

Stayed with my family for a few days. It poured rain every day, but that's why sitting in the hot tub was so fun. There are 2 parts to the hotel accommodations - families and no kids allowed. The areas are separated by a small walking bridge. Too bad the gift shop is on the no kids allowed side. Rooms...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, wish we had stayed more. It is an amazing prroperty, with very friendly staff. We had one of their rooms that had a living room with it, and everything in there was very clean. We had an outdoor shower, and an indoor shower; and a nice hot tub with jacuzzi. They have...

Impeccable service, magnificent grounds, incredible spa, delicious buffet breakfasts, and gorgeous accommodations make Nayara one of the best resorts in the world. The staff tend to your every need and respond immediately when you pick up the phone to request anything from a ride to the spa to an extra baked good for a midnight snack. The rooms are set...

I discovered Nayara through Tripadvisor - it was named No1 luxury hotel in the World in the 2017 TA Travellers Choice Awards. It is certainly a stunning resort & would definitely feature very high on my list of favourites. The grounds are extraordinary - acre upon acre of lush, exotic manicured garden, it's just beautiful. Rooms overlook the jungle canopy,...

I will start with the not so great because there is so little to mention... The hotel is located on a 3 hour drive from either San José or Liberia airports. There is a nearby airport for smaller aircraft and it is possible to fly there from the two other main airports but we decided not to. The drive from...

We arrived at the nayara hotel spa and gardens after a 3 hour car ride from Liberia airport and was wondering if all that travel was worth it. From the minute we got there we realized it was. The personal service from everyone who worked there especially Francisco was top notch. Our view of the volcano from our deck. Jacuzzi...
