This property exceeded expectations. The suites are spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom is well designed with a large shower and good water pressure and abundant hot water. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to assist you with whatever questions or concerns you have. The gallery features great art, jewelry, and other items at reduced prices for guests. Breakfast staff are courteous and the menu and food great. This hotel is well worth returning to.

The room was fantastic, large and airy, with spacious walk in shower in the bathroom. We were greeted with a troup of squirrel monkeys playing in the trees opposite the hotel and later in the trees by our balcony. Fresh coffee, milk and popcorn provided everyday, and the staff were very helpful with lots of advice and information about the area. A nice breakfast was also included in the rate. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I really can't say enough about the quality of this hotel. The pictures don't do the hotel justice. I've never been to CR but was kind of expecting the room to be a little dirty, a little dingy, etc but was very pleasantly surprised! The modern decor was great, and everything was very clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and linens very clean. Bathroom was spotless. OH, and the rooms were HUUUGE! Almost twice the size of a typical hotel room in the states! I think the hotel needs to get a better photographer because the rooms were honestly wonderful! It is located just a bit away from the loudness of the beach, like maybe an extra minute by car but the quietness was worth the extra minute and everything is still a walkable distance away.

The staff was very very accommodating. They helped us plan out our activities and called them to set them up. When we checked out they let us keep our luggage in the back room for the rest of the day. We didn't realize until we left MA that we accidentally left our coffee beans. they actually sent us an email about them and mailed them to us! They refused to accept a tip for mailing them back to the states for us. Above and beyond.

There is a reason they have won TA awards and are so highly rated. Our budget was higher then their fee but we took a chance, I'm so glad we did! I would definitely stay there again. In fact, I hope I do!

We spent a week at this hotel in February. The staff are pleasant and very helpful. It is 5 minutes drive to the Manuel Antonio park and its beautiful sandy beaches. (We hired a car although taxis are not expensive.) Our room was huge and we could walk out of our room through patio doors to the swimming pool area. There is a microwave, sink, fridge, cupboards full of crockery and cutlery, and a coffee machine in the room. If you don't want to cook, there is a very good restaurant next to the hotel.

We stayed at Plaza Yara for 2 nights in March and we had a wonderful time here.
The suites are very spacious and modern. We had a suite with a nice terrace/balcony with views to the pool and the jungle. Breakfast was served the a jungle garden terrace, and it was included in the rate.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great value too!

Room Tip: Suite #3 was very spacious. It had a nice terrace/balcony with views to the pool and to the jungle.

This hotel is great! The staff was very nice and helpful. we got there before check in time and they gave us beach towels and stored our bags so we could hit the beach. The breakfast is very good and is served in a great terrace with a jungle garden.

The rooms are very spacious, good decorations and even fridge and eating utencils were available.

Great place, 100% recommended.

We had a large comfortable suite with a king bed. The air conditioner was a godsend beings it was very warm while we were there. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast good and substantial. Our suite had big windows with views of the forest. We enjoyed Marie the doggie and Havana the cat that live onsite but stay outside.

Room Tip: We stayed in Suite 7 it was great!
