The staff at Nayara, the natural beauty, and overall atmosphere are beyond that of any other place we´ve ever stayed. Coming highly recommended from another couple who visited on their honeymoon, we had high expectations which were promptly exceeded the moment we arrived through the end. Over the course of our three nights, the staff got to know us and...

We stayed another week this year at Nayara. The staff still makes everyone feel like VIPs...always ready to attend to your every wish. We spent 7 nights in our casita with a perfect view of the volcano, luxurious indoor/outdoor shower, private jacuzzi and beautiful surrounding gardens. We even toured the soon-to-open villas. Elquin, who heads up the wine bar, was...

Nayara is a truly amazing hotel. My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for our honeymoon and spent 8 days there. We easily could have stayed a month! We coordinated travel from the airport to Nayara and were met immediately with a driver in a big, clean air conditioned mini bus. He was very knowledgeable and even stopped to...

Just got home after our honeymoon at Nayara. My husband and I cannot remember the last time we were so relaxed. The customer service was EXCELLENT. When we arrived, the room had sort of a chemical, cleaning product smell. They immediately came in and remedied the situation with an air freshener and open doors/windows - which solved it completely. The...

We arrived in San Jose and had a wonderful drive through the Central Valley and out to La Fortuna. It was cloudy at the volcano that day so we did not have the stunning view of it as we came in. Upon arrival at Nayara, we were met by staff that were smiling with a "what can we do to...

We stayed at Nayara for 3 nights in September. The hotel is incredible. We arrived during a downpour and the staff were so great giving us towels, taking us to our room via golf cart and even putting down a towel before we entered the room to keep everything dry - the small touches make all the difference!
