“Pure Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

This is one resort you do not want to miss! we travel quite a bit and rarely do we see a resort so well done in every way! Our rooms were spacious and spectacular. The amenities were perfect. Each has its own private hot springs pool just outside your bedroom. The resort staff helps you with everything from laudry(free) to adventures(zip lining). The restaurants are excellent and the spa if wonderful. My spa treatments were the best I have ever had and cost half as much as the Four Seasons which we went to next in Papagayo. We loved the Tabacon Hot Springs and the Sky Tram and Zip line tour. Just seeing the volcano from there was amazing. We would highly recommend this resort and I hope we are able to return soon!

Room Tip: I think all rooms are the same, but if not ask for a suite with a hot springs pool.

This place is special. Daniella, our guest relation's host was a pleasure to work with, very sweet and professional, and was obviously highly trained in guest relations…

Everything about this resort was perfect, if you can afford to stay here, it's a no brainier.

Room Tip: stay in a villa facing the volcano if it's not booked

This is the best place I have ever been it deserves an "excellent" rating in every category. The price of a villa is extremely fair, and the service is second to none. Each villa has a private mini pool continually filled with hot water from the thermal springs...and 100% private! The mini-bar is free (except for bottles of wine), the full breakfast is free, and the laundry service is free. Every one of the staff is top notch, without exception. Byron, the manager at the "Amor Loco" restaurant, provided an exceptional experience...every time. The sushi is pretty good too. With great views of the volcano, incredible villas, and first class service...this resort is not to be missed.

Room Tip: Choose a Villa in the "Springs" section. It is worth EVERY penny. We stayed in Villa 7.

This is the first place in all my world travels that as soon as I stepped in the hotel, I wanted to return. Privacy & Luxury in the Arenal Volcano Rain Forest summarize this brand new 16 room exquisitively appointed and sophisticated hotel. More elegance and hipness than any W hotel, yet it is world class. Of quaint architecture and decor, with attention to detail in every aspect, from the bed to the linens, to the products and the private plunge pool. The food is excellent starting with the ceviche. The music at Amor Loco featuring "Mecha" jazz guitarist was amazing. If you want privacy, luxury, excellent service and experience the rain forest, this is the place. They made us feel welcome and special. They are very open and relaxed about any couple. We looked and walked around comparing the premises to the Nayara below. In my opinion, "Nayara Springs" is superior to the Nayara on the same property.

Room Tip: Stayed in Villa 6 is very private. Understand that Villa 9 and 13 have views to the volcano.

This is the most beautiful hotel. Service is outstanding, The food is excellent, and the grounds are amazing. We are a group of 15 women traveling through CR and it has been an amazing experience to stay here. If you come, have dinner at the Sushi Bar. They have Japanese/Peruvian food. Yum!

I have had the pleasure of staying in many of the finest hotels and resorts, but have never bothered to write an online review. Please allow me to skip all of the details of superlative excellence or this review would take days to read. My many thanks to all who made it so incredibly special and for her to say, "Yes!"

If Heaven is like Nayara, I will never commit a sin again!

We stayed at the Springs Villa section and highly recommend staying there, because of the direct views of the volcano, the professional responsive staff, private outdoor (beautiful) pool & garden showers, spa and resident Macaw (You have to say "Ola!" To Carolita...)

Costa Rica is truly Pura Vida...

Consider all the days you can to relax and enjoy the grounds and culture!
