Hello folks We have stayed in plaza Yara from July 30th to august 1st, we had a blast enjoying the country, the Area and the hotel. The staff is very kind, helpful and we enjoyed the warm welcome and availability of the stuff to make it the most pleasant possible for us. The rooms are so spacious, clean well decorated, we had an issue with curtain but once we’ve called the reception, literally 3min later they came and fixed it. We had an issue with wifi, indépendant from the hotel and we liked the fact the hotel texted us about taking care of our request and the same night they have fixed it too, thank you guys !! Breakfast is ok, the staff at the restaurant are once again very nice and warm. No need to say that we highly recommend Plaza Yara (hey we have met Yara too, she is so lovely 😍) If you guys are up to Manuel Antonio hopefully you could make it and enjoy the stay and the amentifère at the hotel. Pura Vida

Perfect location with really good conditions. Great swimming pool and breakfast area where you can enjoy the sounds of the wildlife that surrounds the hotel. The hotel also have a great art gallery where you can find beautiful paintings and ceramics! On top of that the staff was super friendly!! Totally recommend

FABULOUS! This boutique hotel is a gem and so reasonably priced. The photos definitely don’t do it justice. The entire hotel has been updated; it is modern. The rooms are beautifully laid out and designed. The art collection in the lobby is tasteful and a bonus addition to the hotel. Each room has a small kitchen area with a microwave, refrigerator, dishes, a coffee maker. The reception staff are gracious and will make sure your every need is met. A delicious full breakfast is prepared for you every morning from a restaurant-style menu. You can enjoy it while sitting on the outside terrace facing the jungle. At 7:30 am we had a “monkey show” as they swung from the branches and played. We stayed here in order to visit Manuel Antonio. We could have skipped the park because we saw more activity here. The location is perfect. There is a small market and several restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend staying at Hotel Plaza Yara!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 4 nights and it was so sad to leave. We loved everything about Plaza Yara. The room was amazing, the facilities are beautiful, the staff was so kind and had great suggestions for anything needed. We had come from La Fortuna and been concerned that we wouldn’t like our hotel as much as the last because it had been so beautiful but Plaza Yara exceeded every expectation and ended up our favorite. We would recommend this stay to anyone and even though there is always a curiosity to what else is out there , I can’t imagine not staying here again when we come back.

Incredible art deco boutique hotel, Extremely clean, extremely safe, backed up to a wildlife preserve, waking up to a beautiful sound of birds chirping, and occasionally visited by cute monkeys , serene Nature and peaceful setting, Great Wi-Fi that you can use your Netflix through it, in the middle of Manuel Antonio less than 2 km from everything and anything, great restaurant on the same street within walking distance, and that’s not all, Nelson the General Manager and his staff did a great job for us accommodating our stay, we stayed in a lot of great hotel across the world and in my opinion this is a minimum of five star hotel if you like boutique hotels like we do and you will get to meet the star of the show when you get there, YARA! 😊😊😊
