This place has a real boutique feel. It has huge, spotless rooms with a small kitchen and very modern bathroom, good breakfast and efficient and friendly service throughout. This place is clearly well run and has built a deservedly good reputation over the years. The only downside for me was the location. It's on the road between Quepos and Manuel... More

We returned to Plaza Yara this month after about 2 years since our last stay. It was, if possible, more beautiful, and welcoming than before! The rooms had been redone in gray and white, and the lounge and breakfast room moved and spiffed up. Its hard to believe you can get such quality at this price! Breakfast is included and... More

We have stayed in 4 different hotels in the $70-100 range in Costa Rica and this one was by far the nicest one. The rooms are huge, very clean and decorated like an art gallery. The rain forest is in the back yard. The hotel also has a small pool with a nice and modern deck, Staff is very friendly... More

Our experience was awkward, though I think they had just reopened. There wasn't food. Our bathroom smelled like sewage. The room was pretty and you can watch the monkeys in the morning. It's awkwardly right on the road and you can't walk anywhere.

Best value for a traveler while visiting Quepos. The hotel is clean, well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. Our room was spacious with 2 beds, a large sized bathroom with a shower that easily fits more than one person, a fridge, coffee maker. Our room also provided us with eating utensils (cups, silverware, plates). Our room also had... More

First time in Costa Rica and loved this place! The setting the artwork and the amenities were all there but the best part was our host Javier. His kind attention and genuine hospitality were the best we encountered in our 9 days in CR. All our questions were answered above and beyond including the origin of the art that we... More

Great place to stay! The rooms are HUGE and very clean. Mini refrigerator in the room and a large balcony. A very modern hotel compared to other places we stayed while in Costa Rica. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was great each morning and the hotel is just a short drive to the beach. I would not... More

Our absolute favorite hotel from our Costa Rica trip. The staff here makes you feel like they genuinely want you to enjoy Manuel Antonio. The customer service is consistently excellent and warm. I signed up for trip advisor just so I could write this review.

We stayed at hotel Yara for two nights and it was beautiful charming hotel. When you enter into the lobby you are greeted by Spanish art made by locals. The hotels lobby is actually a art museum of sorts in the lobby area. Our room was nothing short of impressive, large bathroom, large living room as well as a beautiful... More

My wife and I loved this place! Great breakfast, the rooms were amazingly clean with a modern feel. Bathrooms were awesome with great water pressure and mini fridge in room. The staff was incredible, Nelson went above and beyond for us, helping us deal with a rental car issue. He and Johnathan have to be some of the best staff... More
