I stayed at Arenal Nayara in late May for a friend's wedding. It is MUCH more posh than any place I would normally stay, but I decided to splurge because the wedding and events were to be held there. I'm very glad I stayed here, it was pricey (though we got a special wedding block rate), but worth every penny. It just looks like absolute paradise.
Impeccably clean, ENORMOUS room, friendly, amazing and impeccable service. Breakfast every morning was fantastic: custom-made omelettes, loads of fresh fruit (though not as good as fruit I had elsewhere in Costa Rica), many pastries, cereals, etc.
The pool is small but lovely, and I loved the pool bar. The fitness center is tiny and very basic.
Two laptops were available in the lobby, making it very easy to check email, do further trip planning, etc.
If you have the budget for it, a stay at Arenal Nayara is fantastic!
