Nayara Gardens Honeymoon reviews

“We wanted to say thank you for helping us plan this honeymoon -- it was absolutely perfect! Nayara was so beautiful and the resort was simply stunning. Secrets Papagayo was also beautiful and we had a great time being at the beach in that scenic setting! We're attaching a few photos from our honeymoon here and we hope you'll like them.

We really wanted to thank you again for your support and help with this trip. We would've been lost without Lauri's guidance and all the great help from the staff at both resorts. We are already hoping to get back to both locations!

“Arenal Nayara Hotel Spa & Gardens review

How did the honeymoon turn out in general?
It was wonderful! We got to do so many unique and exhilarating adventures while we were there, but there was still so much more to do! We also were able to experience the romance and serenity that we were hoping to get on our trip, just like any honeymoon should have.
What did you like best about the resort you stayed at?
It would be really difficult to pinpoint just one thing that was amazing about the Nayara, but overall, we would have to give the nod to the staff. They were so accommodating and friendly, had an incredible attention to detail, and really went out of their way to make sure our stay was as relaxing and pain free as possible. Every time we passed an employee of the hotel, they would always great us with an "Hola!" as we walked by. Not only that, the grounds were GORGEOUS!!!
What about the destination in general?
Costa Rica was not only a paradise, but we were blown away at how friendly everyone we encountered was. Obviously it's a majestic and beautiful country, but the outlook on life and free spirits who live there just make it that much better. Ticos truly live a "pura vida" lifestyle, and it's infectious from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave!
The least?
Honestly, the most unpleasant experience we had was when we were stuck on an excursion with some very unpleasant and obnoxious fellow American tourists. If it wasn't for that, I don't know if we would have a single negative about our honeymoon other than it had to end.
Highlight of the honeymoon?
Seeing such a wide variety of wildlife in their natural surroundings as opposed to a zoo. And once again, to really hammer the point home, the overwhelming friendliness of the Costa Rican people. It was very refreshing to go to a place that had such a simple lifestyle, yet everyone genuinely seemed to enjoy life.
Anything you wish you knew beforehand that you could pass on to us for further clients?
I honestly did days worth of research on the country, and you were very helpful with the information you provided, so we didn't have too many surprises. One suggestion I would make is to let people know that looking for excursions provided by companies outside the hotel will save them a lot of money. I came across a few reviews on various sites that suggested that, and we found prices that were far cheaper than what the Nayara would have offered for the same experience.
Any other comments?
Not too much to add other than our trip went far and beyond our expectations, which were already very high. Costa Rica is a marvelous place, and we hope to return again later in life!
Was our service what you expected?
Absolutely. Everything was as painless as possible, from the transfer to and from the hotel/airport, to the booking process. Very easy process, and I'm glad we went through your company as opposed to trying to book everything on our own.
Could we have done more to make your trip smoother?
It went smoothly enough, I honestly don't think there was anything that needed to be done to make it better. Once again, thank you so much for your help!

“Arenal Nayara
the honeymoon was a great experience overall. The planning went exactly has I had hoped and the
experience exceeded my expectations with the quality of each aspect of the
trip, especially transportation and food.

I loved the size of the room at nayara and the incredible service we had. The room was
incredible with so many features and romantic spots. The dreams resort had
amazing food and the view of the room was incredible.

The people were incredibly happy and hospitable and the food everywhere even in the little town where our driver took us was a awesome. The pools and and activity options were great.

Highlight of the honeymoon ?- The highlight was probably the spa experience
at nayara or the room in general at nayara. Nayara was amazing and blew us
away. Highly recommend it.

No other comments. The trip was fantastic.

I felt taken care of and well prepared!”
