We stayed at Hotel Plaza Yara for 2 nights in February 2011. Nelson was unbelievably helpful, friendly and welcoming to the hotel when we arrived. As I checked in my boyfriend watched the squirrel monkeys use "the monkey bridge" to get across the street right at the hotel. Pretty cool! Jonathan showed me to the room which was spacious and clean. We stayed in room #5 which was spacious and looked out over the jungle in the back. I was able to see a mama sloth and her baby from our room hanging out in the tree right by the pool deck. Nelson signed us up for a guided tour of the National Park in the morning with Juan. He was great very knowledgeable and patient. We saw lots of sloths, a howler monkey, iguanas, toucans, lizards, a gladiator frog, and other various birds. We spent some time down at the pool (no bar) with our own cocktails. It was very relaxing and we had to all to ourselves. We met some other couples on the tour and had a great time with them both at the pool and at other random spots in Costa Rica.
The first night the air conditioning worked well and my boyfriend was able to take a hot shower. We were unable to get hot water in our shower the second day and that night the AC was not putting out cold air. Also, the bed, while comfortable enough, only had a sheet and a thin sheet like cover. If you tend to get cold at night we suggest bringing something a little warmer. Overall the staff was great, the scenery was beautiful and the kitty was adorable! We ended up leaving a credit card in the safe when we departed to our next city. Nelson contacted me immediately by email to let me know. THANKS NELSON!!! ( :
