We booked a couple of "rooms" at the Hotel Plaza Yara while we were in the Manuel Antonio region. What we got was a couple of HUGE studios!! Each one had a beautiful view of the garden outside. Breakfast (which was included) was also pretty good (custom ordered omlettes, fruit, pinto gallo). I would definitely consider staying here again!

Right on the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, this hotel is pleasant but due to it's position, all the rooms are very dark with very little natural light. The hotel pool area is small and backs onto a forest where there is plenty of wildlife. The rooms are large and the bathrooms very well-appointed. The bed was comfortable...

This is a beautiful hotel in a lovely setting. We had a huge room with TV and free WIFI. The hotel arranged a tour for us at Manuel Antonio that was great. Close to lots of restaurants and the beach. Free parking and the breakfast was good.

This hotel was such a nice place to stay while we were in the area for a destination wedding. The room was large and very comfortable. We liked that it had a separate kitchen area (that overlooked the jungle). On our final night there we watched monkeys from our room, jumping back and forward from the jungle to the tin...

Just stayed there for 5 nights and the staff was super friendly and even gave me a partying souvenir gift for staying with them. They always answered my questions and helped me find all the right excursions. The hotel is beautiful and very inviting. 5 star accommodations for 3 star prices!

Could not fault this hotel! We had room 1 (suite) which was a huge, well-decorated room with two double beds, a large shower and view of the jungle! The hotel itself is well-decorated with lots of interesting artwork and the pool area is clean and a great place to relax. The staff are very helpful and the manager went out...

This boutique hotel is so quaint and unique. Guests are greeted by a beautiful reception area in a colorful art gallery. The manager, Nelson, is helpful and friendly, as are all of the employees. This is a small, charming property. It was so refreshing to stay here... we preferred it to larger, fancier, American-style hotels. Our room, the Siboney Suite,...

Went here with my fiancee. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean, and had a nice view of the jungle. It included a kitchen with a fridge, sink, and dishes/cutlery. There's a beautiful pool too that backs onto the jungle. We were able to see monkeys, a sloth, and other wildlife. The breakfast is also very...

Very nice hotel, large suites with lovely views of the jungle. Our suite had a mini kitchen (mini-fridge and microwave), lounge area, king size bed and twin size bed too. The shower was massive. Breakfast is nice, mostly egg-based options. We didn't have a car but the hotel is only a 2 minute walk away from a bus stop and...
