I wasn’t really sure what to expect when hubby made the reservation because from the outside, it’s hard to get a feel for what you will find inside. But I quickly realized that I really liked this little boutique hotel. The room (which is actually a suite) was fresh and stylish, very spacious and comfortable. Two beds, kitchenette with dishes,...

My wife and I wanted to visit Manuel Antonio for a couple of days since we had heard of the beauty of the area and the National Park, but since we have two dogs, we need to always fins a location that is pet friendly. A quick search on the Internet steered us to Hotel Plaza Yara. When we arrived,... More

We stayed here for one night during our holiday in Costa Rica, we are a family with two children (11 and 14). The person at reception was very friendly and efficient. We had the suite 12. Amazing! It gave directly on to the swimming pool and jacuzzi. Huge spotlessly clean room. Very practical (fridge, coffee maker, coffee, microwave and even... More

We stayed at the Hotel Plaza Yara for a few days at the end of an 8 day stay in Costa Rica. Upon arriving, we were greeted at our vehicle by Johnathan. He showed us to our rooms, gave us a tour of each room, and then took us on an overview of the hotel property, how breakfast worked, lobby... More

Ah- my favorite place that I stayed at while in CR. Nelson and Javier are gems. Anything you want to know, anything you could possibly need- they have it. Javier is a joy to chat with so if you get a chance, you should. He will even help you practice your spanish a bit ;)! Housekeeping leaves a box of... More

Our family of 4 stayed in July, 2015. We loved our stay with the Hotel Plaza Yara. Our room was very spacious and clean, at least twice the size of a normal hotel room. We had a room with 2 twin beds and a separate sleeping area for us. The bathroom was huge. But what we enjoyed most was the... More

This lovely little hotel is incredibly good value, much less expensive than the other luxury hotels in the area, presumably because it isn't right on the ocean and has just a small swimming pool (with jacuzzi). Having fallen in love with it several months ago on Tripadvisor, we found it perfect. There are bus stops in both directions just a... More

This is a small boutique hotel, there are 12 rooms so I don't think it ever gets overcrowded. The rooms are proper suites, with a kitchenette included and finished to a high standard. I was v impressed with the huge size and the modern finish to our suite. We were greeted v warmly by Javier, who settled us in and... More
