10/10 Exceptional

Best Resort Ever
We cannot say enough wonderful things about Nayara Springs. It is truly a magical place with extensive grounds that are impeccably maintained and home to many kinds of wildlife. The staff is incredible, friendly, warm and welcoming. Being able to use all of the amenities - pools, restaurants, bars at all 3 connected Nayara properties allows for so many options to explore; 3 nights was not enough for us and we wish we had stayed longer. We have stayed at many luxury and five star resorts and Nayara was by far the best resort at which we have ever stayed.

My husband and I reallt enjoyed our time at Nayara. The villa was gorgeous and the hot tub pool was fabulous! The grounds are lovely and the hot springs pools were so relaxing. The food and drinks were all excellent, as was the staff. The location was good for exploring the area (with a car). We would love to go again!

10/10 Exceptional

Nayara is a top class hotel with great levels of service. Facilities and variety of restaurants are very good. The hotels are located in a hill side o walks up and down can be quite steep (but not difficult). An app to guide you around the 3 hotels would be a sensible idea as the sign posting is average at best

8/10 Very Good

Almost everything was great and specially the staff were super friendly & professional. We rented two villas and they both had mice issue inside the roof structure, and they kept us up at night and we were not able to sleep! We also told the front management, but they couldn't fix it either.
