We enjoyed our stay here. The room was incredibly spacious and having spent the previous few days in more rustic locations, it was nice to be in a more modern hotel. The bathroom/showers were great. We would stay here again! We had a car so getting to the numerous restaurants and bars in the area was not a problem. We... More

My wife and I spent two nights here at the end of our Costa Rican holiday. Very good service. Lovely room. Sumptuous breakfast with lots of variety. Ample parking. Air conditioning. Lots of artwork and tasteful decor. All for a very good price.

We are a family of five that visited on August 6th and 7th. We originally were going to stay at a hotel next to the park and beach but I didn't like the reviews so we switched to Plaza Yara which is only a short 5 minute drive to the park and beaches. I really had no great expectations and... More

This is a beautiful boutique hotel. The room was really a suite with a separate kitchen, dining and sitting area. The bedroom was enormous, beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet and I had a wonderful view of the woods, with many butterflies and birds. The swimming pools were very nice (although they were doing some construction at the time by the one... More

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by warm, friendly staff! Absolutely loved the hotel and the views. The room was wonderful and very spacious. Love the bathroom. A very nice touch to the room was a microwave and a small "kitchen" area with fridge. They had microwave popcorn, coffee, and milk in a fridge! We had an early tour the... More

Best hotel we stayed at in Costa Rica. The staff were all super nice. The room was spacious. My daughter loved the surprise of popcorn in our room. Everything was very well maintained. Coffee in the room was delicious. Loved the fact that it was a smaller hotel and it was quiet. We sat outside on the couches relaxing multiple... More

This boutique hotel operates as a art gallery in the reception area. It's pretty cool actually. The room we got was huge and we got a balcony with a forest view. The bathroom was also huge. The room had a refrigerator, cups, plates, cutting board, microwave. If you need a hairdryer, ask for one in advance. The room was tastefully... More
