This place has a real boutique feel. It has huge, spotless rooms with a small kitchen and very modern bathroom, good breakfast and efficient and friendly service throughout. This place is clearly well run and has built a deservedly good reputation over the years. The only downside for me was the location. It's on the road between Quepos and Manuel...

We returned to Plaza Yara this month after about 2 years since our last stay. It was, if possible, more beautiful, and welcoming than before! The rooms had been redone in gray and white, and the lounge and breakfast room moved and spiffed up. Its hard to believe you can get such quality at this price! Breakfast is included and...

We have stayed in 4 different hotels in the $70-100 range in Costa Rica and this one was by far the nicest one. The rooms are huge, very clean and decorated like an art gallery. The rain forest is in the back yard. The hotel also has a small pool with a nice and modern deck, Staff is very friendly...

Our experience was awkward, though I think they had just reopened. There wasn't food. Our bathroom smelled like sewage. The room was pretty and you can watch the monkeys in the morning. It's awkwardly right on the road and you can't walk anywhere.

Dear Patricia Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay at Hotel Plaza Yara. With thousands of reviews on Tripadvisor, Expedia, Booking, Hotels and various other sites we also feel awkward reading and responding to our first two star rating.

First time in Costa Rica and loved this place! The setting the artwork and the amenities were all there but the best part was our host Javier. His kind attention and genuine hospitality were the best we encountered in our 9 days in CR. All our questions were answered above and beyond including the origin of the art that we...

Great place to stay! The rooms are HUGE and very clean. Mini refrigerator in the room and a large balcony. A very modern hotel compared to other places we stayed while in Costa Rica. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was great each morning and the hotel is just a short drive to the beach. I would not...

Our absolute favorite hotel from our Costa Rica trip. The staff here makes you feel like they genuinely want you to enjoy Manuel Antonio. The customer service is consistently excellent and warm. I signed up for trip advisor just so I could write this review.

We stayed at hotel Yara for two nights and it was beautiful charming hotel. When you enter into the lobby you are greeted by Spanish art made by locals. The hotels lobby is actually a art museum of sorts in the lobby area. Our room was nothing short of impressive, large bathroom, large living room as well as a beautiful...

We stayed Friday through Friday and would gladly move in permanently! And what a deal! I've payed more than twice as much a night for a hotel in the States and not gotten nearly as much room and comfort. The main room was huge, clean, modern, comfortable and beautiful!
