The cabins at Nayara Arenal are even more beautiful in person than they are on the resort's website. Believe it. Absolutely stunning views of the volcano from your balcony. Ours even had a Jacuzzi. The resort is brand new and has a majestic Disney like feel to it. Warning though and this may not be the resort's fault-there are a lot of bugs. Despite the paradisiacal charm of our cabin, we found two cockroaches in the bathroom. I also had to remove a lot of crawlers from our Jacuzzi at night before we used it. La Fortuna does have oodles of critters everywhere, so be prepared!
We found the restaurant to be adequate and nicely priced. I'd recommend the Casado with Shrimp, it's delicious. The pool is nice and has a welcoming sunken bar.
I found the excursions to be a little over priced. We paid $160 per person for a day tour of the Arenal Volcano, hanging bridges, waterfall and Tabacco hot springs. I can’t wholeheartedly tell you that it was money well spent. Although, it was raining half the time, and that was part of the reason. We didn't get to see any lava :( .
Nayara does not have any lava views.
