This was a very nice stay at this hotel. I had visited it with my wife a couple of years ago and decided we wanted to bring our two kids. Finally this January during our vacation we stayed there just for 1 night (because we had a previous reservation far way from Manuel Antonio). The place is quite, in harmony... More

We had a group of 16 people stay at Plaza Yara in mid January for over a week. The staff at this hotel are phenomenal! Starting with the reception guys (Javier, Jonathon, Nelson) to the waiter in the restaurant (Sigi) to the maids and the man cleaning the pool, the staff went out of their way to make our stay...

Could not speak more highly of our stay at this hotel. Upon arrival, the staff is helpful with showing us our room, giving restaurant recommendations and offering to help in any way possible. With only 14 rooms, it's incredibly quiet but they have a full restaurant and bar to provide any bottles and drinks needed. Rooms are just as described... More

Excellent air conditioning. Our room was very large. Nice selection of prepared to order breakfast choices. Built on a jungle hillside with birds and monkeys often sighted. Look for... More

This place surpassed my expectations and since we booked early I will say that it was still a deal. Upon our arrival we realized that our room could accommodate 3 more persons. The rooms are spacious and have a terrace in the back. We had the pleasure of being greeted by a howler monkey. The pool is great and the... More

The hotel is not near the park (4kms away) but there is a regular bus service that takes you to the beach/park in 20mins (310 colones). The stop is just 50mts away so makes it really convenient. It is actually not bad to be away as it is more secluded and quiet. there are a couple of restaurants within walking... More

If you are looking for a quiet and familiar hotel that is still close to the park then Plaza Yara is the place to be. The rooms are spacious and the pool in the backyard feels like right in the middle of the forest. The amenities are new and clean. We stayed here over Christmas and even then it had... More

First, the hotel is maintained very well, very clean rooms and common areas, and the rooms are huge. Breakfast was good, with many choices. The pool area... More
