In our dream world, all of our guests would have enough money to stay at Nayara and Nayara would always have the rooms available. The Nayara Hotel is one of those places where everyone wants to stay. Our clients in Feb. 2012, of the Houge Family from South Dakota, stayed at Nayara and their children got their picture taken with the President of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla. This is a good indication of the kind of place it when the President stays there. The hotel has of 40 different villas and almost all have excellent views of the volcano. The service here is over the top and they do an excellent job of being consistent. If our paragraph here is not enough just go check the thousands of comments on TripAdvisor. I have yet to find a negative one. With this said if you are planning a trip to Costa Rica and want to stay at Nayara you better plan on booking up to 9 months in advance. Do we think it is a trip bummer if you do not get into Nayara (absolutely NOT!) there are many places even in the Arenal area that are amazing places to stay but Nayara is a great spot with solid marketing which makes it one of the most difficult places in all of Costa Rica to get reservations in.

This hotel is located on a small piece of land which might be it's only downfall. They do an beautiful job of covering the grounds with plants but all in all the property is small. It is more of a honeymoon type place than real adventure get out and hike area. When at Nayara you usually just plan on being still and enjoy the grounds that they have which includes a luxurious pool, spa, & wine bar.

Reasons to Go:

  • Arguable one of the top hotels in Costa Rica
  • Rooms are spectacular
  • Great views of Volcano Arenal
  • Over the top service

Reasons NOT to Go:

  • Not as small as it use to be
  • Not the cheapest hotel in town
  • Availability can be tough so if your dates are flexible that can help a lot
  • Surrounded by other hotels
