When I travel, I prefer to not build up lofty expectations about hotels or destinations. I like to keep a clear head so I can form my own views. With Nayara, I was unable to do that. After reading all of the excellent reviews, I had extremely high expectations for this resort. Nayara met and exceeded all of my expectations....

We were lucky enough to have spent five days here and it was by far one of the more beautiful, romantic and amazing delightful places that we have ever been in the world.

I just got back a week ago from Nayara where I spent my 12th year anniversary with my husband for four nights. This resort was amazing in every way. The service was incredible. They made us feel so welcomed from the second we stepped on the property. We were immediately welcomed to sit at a desk where they checked us...

We honeymooned at Nayara and absolutely loved everything about it! We had a villa with amazing views of the volcano, awesome layout, spacious, clean and modern. Everyday we would come back to our room and there would be something special done for us- flower petals on the bed, towels folded into animal shapes, treats etc. The restaurants on the resort...

How great is Nayara? So great I had to create a TripAdvisor account so I could leave them a rave review. Never have I received such personal and personable service. It starts the moment you step out of your transportation - with a welcome cocktail and refreshing moist towel - and continues until the moment you depart when they give...

We have just returned from our stay at the Nayara hotel. From the moment we entered the resort we felt like we were among friends. All the staff were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The resort is kept very clean, and is very easy to get around. It has been beautifully landscaped with brightly coloured flowers to...

We traveled here for our honeymoon in June. We purchased the Adventure Package and it was stress-free and so much fun! All transportation was arranged and the tour guides were excellent. It was a good mix of activity with days to relax and enjoy the hotel or experience the town of La Fortuna. The Zip Line was an unforgettable experience....

Nayara was one of the most incredible places I have had the opportunity to visit. Incredibly friendly staff, amazing food, and a beautiful setting.

This is an absolutely gorgeous property, with very good service and a convenient location. I would definitely recommend to other couples and would stay there again.

The readers of both Travel and Leisure and Condé Nast got it right when they voted Nayara the No. 4 hotel in the world. Nayara managed to live up to our impossibly high expectations.
