We almost booked at Tabacon, until we found Nayara. We booked in their new area with the villas with our private hot spring fed pool. We had coffee and juice brought to our room everyday and our villa included breakfast, which you could do room-service for as well. We did the room-service a few times and it was wonderful! They setup breakfast in our outdoor patio and we enjoyed it while viewing Arenal Volcano!
We then left for the Four Seasons, but we sorely missed the morning delivery of coffee and juice!
Also, the villa had a mini-fridge that came with free drinks (water, sodas, beer). There was some wine in there, but you had to pay for that. It also included free laundry (yes, free) and we used it a few times! Free long distance calls and wifi were also included.So it was great, to be able to call back to the States daily and check in.
We did the private dinner with the chef and I would highly recommend doing this! It was so beautiful and romantic and was a nice surprise for my husband. They pick you up from your room and take you to the dinner.
Room - outdoor shower, indoor shower. Separate vanities (great)! Outdoor bed - we loved this so much; now want to get one for our outdoor patio! Views of Arenal Volcano - although was only partial view; so if you want full view; ask for a room with it. We had some a/c problems, but they came immediately to fix it.
Also, the villas appear "secluded" surrounded by greenery, but they are pretty close to other villas and you can hear people passing/walking by and others in their outdoor villas. It is private in the sense you can't see them, but you can hear them.
We loved this place overall and would definitely recommend this place for couples.
