    Fabulous stay

    An amazing stay all around. My in-laws stayed in the casita and our family (2 kids and 2 adults) stayed in the Rainforest Villa. The Rainforest Villa, in my opinion, is worth the upgrade for the huge bathroom and extra things like the free laundry (we went home with almost all clean clothes!) and minibar. The staff is unbelievable—responsive, friendly and always willing to go above and beyond. Towels folded into animals, treats left bedside. Very clean and well maintained property. I would compare it to Banyan Tree or Anantara resorts in terms of it seeming immersed in nature with beautiful rooms and amenities. A few things that might be helpful in general to travelers: It’s a 2.5-3 hour drive from SJO. Driving at night is hard for visibility. We rented a car which was so helpful to drive ourselves to the town La Fortuna and directly to tours that we booked on our own (Sloth Walk, Don Tobias horseback riding and the hike to the waterfall were highlights). We loved the restaurants Don Rufino and Anch’io (Italian) in the town. If you need medical care, there is a 24 hour clinic (which we ended up needing after an hammock head injury incident), but if you need more testing, etc. it’s an hour drive to a true ED. This is truly a special place. If you want the Costa Rica rainforest experience, I highly recommend this resort.

    Great hotel and staff!

    Amazing atmosphere, friendly staff, over the top complimentary breakfast, and finally very romantic and private atmosphere. I am usually not one to leave a review, but feel compelled to return a sincere thank you to Nayara Gardens and their staff for making it a very memorable vacation!

  • 6.0.Good

    All of the Nayara Resorts are beautiful and the rooms are unique. I spent 4 nights in a Rainforest Villa at the Garden. While beautiful, for the price of the room, I would have expected the AC to work and for the water to stay hot. Couldn’t fill up the hot tub on the deck and not run out of hot water. Also when I turned on the fan above the bed, dead bugs went flying off. The pools on the property are beautiful, specifically the adults only pool which if you are lucky shows amazing view of the volcano. The food was great at all the restaurants, while a bit pricey.
