My wife and I were reminiscing about our trip to Costa Rica last year (February 2012). We were discussing all the hotels we stayed in and I couldn't believe that I didn't writer a review for Hotel Plaza Yara. This place way exceeded our expectations.
To start, the rooms are really big and very clean. We felt spoiled by how much space we had for just the two of us, and at a fraction of the price that we payed for hotels in other cities. Our room had a balcony facing some lush rainforest and on our first night, we spotted a sloth in a tree right outside our window. We watched it for about an hour, and we even went down to the pool area to get a closer look. In the mornings, we saw White Face and Capuchin monkeys.
The hotel offers free breakfast served in an outside, but covered dining area that also faces the rainforest. The service and the meals we're always to notch!
The location is just a short drive from the Manuel Antonio National Park, and it's very close to a wide assortment of restaurants.
I definitely recommend this hotel if you're staying in the Manuel Antonio area. Also, the restaurant with the big airplane was really good, reasonably priced, and has fantastic views of the coastline.
Have a great trip!
