Friendly, helpful owners. Spacious rooms with a fridge, microwave and a sink, and thus the alternative to make simple food yourself. Safe in the room, wi-fi works. Good selection of different things at breakfast. In the mornings you are likely to see monkeys outside the terrasse. A nice, quiet outdoor area surronded by a junglelike garden. The only real downside...

This place is lovely, the seating area under cover makes you feel like your surrounded by greenery and the pools are lovely. Our room was huge clean and quirky we loved it. The bus to the park is quick cheap and easy and the staff were really helpful. The only negative would be the breakfast was quite average.

Very warm welcome at a bright reception, filled with works of art for sale. The rooms were clean and spacious, and there were several choices at breakfast. Nice touches were the popcorn (there is a microwave), coffee and fresh milk . I did not like having to ask for a hairdryer at reception, nor the fact that there was nowhere...

The rooms are very big and very comfortable. We had a little balcony over the terrace which was nice. AC worked well which was good as it was raining lots. Most of the staff as very friendly and the goodbye gift is such a nice touch.

After 11 hour flight and 2.5 hour car journey, we wanted our first stop to be convenient and comfortable. Hotel Plaza Yara is exactly that and would recommend to anyone on a budget as a good place to stay. Staff were helpful and polite and the hotel had everything needed for a one night stay. Good size room and bathroom,...

Nelson and his staff were extremely accommodating, professional and courteous to me my fiance and our 8 month old daughter during our stay at Hotel Plaza Yara. The pool area is beautiful and the pools well kept. Beautiful flora and fauna surrounds and we saw monkeys twice while lounging in the pool, once from our spacious and well designed balcony....

We stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon travelling around Costa Rica. The staff here gave us a really lovely welcome. And the rooms were wow compared to elsewhere we'd stayed previously. I mean it was huge, even for a suite. Our massive windows overlooked a forest area and we had monkeys playing there in the morning. The...

Hotel Plaza Yara was just great, just a few km from the parc, nice modern grounds, very spacious rooms, pool and outdoor patio perfect to spend late afternoons. We were very fortunate to have a few visits from the squirrels monkeys during pur stay. Very good breakfast and nice ce and useful staff.
