It is a beautiful place, however, the constant torrential rain ruined the stay. We never in 4 days saw the volcano and had to cancel our hike in the lava fields because of mud and rain. Also it is a VERY steep resort and walking around is a real chore. There are no personal golf carts to get around and we had to keep calling for transport to restaurants because of the rain and steep inclines.

Nayara Springs

Reviewed on: 13 Jul 2017

This resort is everything you could ever want IF you don't mind a very remote location. The hotel and staff was one of the best we've ever encountered. In addition, the villa was not only beautiful, it was spacious and had every comfort. The bed was heavenly and the natural spring plunge pool was a great place to relax and observe local wildlife. The restaurants had very good food (our favorites were the wine pairing at Nostalgia and Costa Rican night at Altamira). The open air Spa was unlike any other I've experienced. Listening to the sounds of the rainforest while enjoying a massage is the ultimate relaxation. One caution: You can do NOTHING outside the resort without arranging transportation (which the staff will do for you). But, if you want a romantic, secluded vacation at a top notch resort and don't mind spending the money for all the excursions, then this is the place for you. It's truly an exquisite property and staff.
