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

My husband and I stayed at Plaza Yara for 3 nights and had a great time. The room was huge and super nice! Complimentary breakfast, popcorn and coffee was excellent. The pool area was perfect for swimming and hanging out and reading. The hotel lobby is filled with art from Costa Rica that you can buy, and it was very... More

Nice medium sized hotel on the way to the national park. The hotel is in a rather quiet location, however this also means that there are few restaurants and bars close. Also the hotel has no sea view. On the plus side the staff was very nice, the bus stop is rigth in front of the hotel and the room... More

Great location and hotel. Staff is awesome. So friendly and helpful. Very clean and neat with large rooms and ours had a cozy patio. Free breakfast was very tasty. Close to all the spots. Woken up by a toucan but who would complain about that. The art gallery up front is beautiful as well

I can thank the staff and managers enough for our fantastic stay! The hotel was comfortable, clean and spacious. The breakfast was spot on every morning and the adjacent restaurant was amazing. All the grounds were kept perfectly and the art in the lobby was fun to look at. Great place!

I am in the customer service business so I usually have pretty tough standards. Nelson and Javier and their staff are above and beyond my standards. From the design of the rooms and decor, cleanliness, and personal touch it exceeded expectations. It is located a couple minute drive from the beach and its restaurants/bars or go the other direction and... More

We had a big room, great air conditioning and enjoyed seeing the monkeys around the pool in the back! Only drawback was food not really onsite but down the road. Loved the hotel dog. Staff was nice helping us with a tour on a catamaran to go snorkeling.

Loved this hotel! Our suite was spacious and beautiful. Our private patio overlooked the 2 swimming pools and the forest beyond. We saw monkeys and Macaws right on the property, and a family of Howler monkeys entertained us from across the street in front of the hotel. The service was excellent, and the grounds were gorgeous, especially the lounge seating... More
