I am struggling to give it a proper rating. It's a really nice hotel. The room is huge -- the dining area is bigger than the entire room of some the hotels I stayed at. The staff is great and ready to help. Monkeys right outside and Macaw next door. Breakfast is very good. A la carte so it's slow.... More

I stayed 2 nights with a Spanish class of students from the US. Of all the hotels we stayed in, this was by far the best!! The staff was so nice and very willing to take time answering questions about the area. The rooms were huge and very clean. I hope to return!!

The staff, first and foremost, were very kind and accomodating to my friends and I. They helped out with planning trips, taxis, dinners, activities, etc. Our hotel room was gorgeous; comfortable beds, elegant/spacious bathrooms, and tile floors. The pool area was set back in the rainforest, with a Jacuzzi as well, which was incredible. The hotel also provided free wifi... More

The employees at the hotel were incredibly nice and friendly. They helped us with stuff to do during our vacation and everything they recommended was awesome! I would recommend this place to anyone. A short 10 minute bus ride to the beach for less than a dollar. Great location, great everything.

After staying in a rustic hotel in the Arenal area we were very impressed by Hotel Plaza Yara. The rooms and bathrooms are big and elegant. The hotel has a small pool and jacuzu, a pretty sitting / lounge area, and a nice art galley. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The kids loved their friendly dog, Mariel. It... More

Whilst the hotel is on the main road just outside Quepos, so not ideal without a car, it is a clean modern hotel and attractively designed. Rooms are very spacious. We would recommend staying here. One sadness is the Z restaurant next door - one of the best in Costa Rica and not overpriced - is due to move to... More

What a really lovely place. How can a Hotel on a busy road be so quiet. The rooms have a real luxury feel and very quiet and efficient air con. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Although a little away from beach and National Park, which actually work to its advantage, the local busses are very cheap and every... More

Loved it. Huge room, huge shower, kitchenette and very clean. Who could ask for anything more? Even tho right on highway, room was quiet and road noise was not a problem. There are bigger, fancier places in the area but if you're in for a short stay you can't beat this place.
