Spectacular property, great food and friendly staff.The grounds are HUGE, consistenting of Nayara Springs, Gardens and Tented accommodation. The rooms are beautiful, with very private covered porches....perfect for morning coffee or reading in the rain. Birds and wildlife everywhere...wake to the soubds of Howler monkeys amd nocturnal critters dancing on our roof. Good proximity to town, volcano and other activities. Don't miss the "free hot springs" river experience!

This place was absolutely magical- from the gorgeous landscaping that makes you feel immersed in nature to the top notch service, our stay at Nayara Gardens was a dream. The complimentary morning yoga, and the hot spring pools really helped us relax. La Terraza offered a wonderful breakfast every morning, and if it’s not too cloudy, you can see the Arenal volcano as you sip on your fresh Costa Rican coffee. We will definitely be back specifically to this resort!
