"Lovely hotel, fantastic service"
If you want an absolutely clean & notably spacious hotel, this is the place for you. And the staff couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. The pool is lovely, and the rooms look right into a bit of rain forest. Unfortunately, not all rooms have balconies as the posted descriptions suggest. So if you want one, be sure to request one that has a b […] alcony. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Absolutely wonderful! Couldn't ask for more."
This hotel, with its large suites, excellent service, lovely jungle view, immaculate pool, great breakfast, etc. made our anniversary vacation very memorable. It sets the bar high for hotel standards; I wish all hotels would pay as much attention to the maintenance of their facilities. Thank you, Nelson, for the lovely welcome and the excellent sta […] y.

"beautiful hotel, awesome stay!"
fantastic accommodations - the room was new, beautiful and super clean, the common space was wonderful (saw toucans while eating free breakfast). amazing stay!!!! would stay here again without question.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrific hotel very close (about 5 mins by car) to the beach. The room is really large (with high ceilings too). It's very clean and decorated beautifully - with colorful mosaic tiles, bamboo furniture and lots of natural accents like hanging plants, and water features. You can spot monkeys swinging in adjoining forest and the staff is very pleasant […] and helpful. We felt extremely comfortable. Thank you for everything! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the Manuel Antonio Park"
It was a nice hotel, but the mattress was very cheap and the room is big and empty, not welcoming and comfortable. Not that we were in the room that much, but the TV was small and hard to see from the bed. BIG room and BIG bathroom. AND we did see monkeys the last morning we were there, while we ate breakfast. PERFECTLY located but no view of the o […] cean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel in Manuel Antonio"
Great room overlooking some wooded area. Very good room rate, great location, and very friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Huge rooms, no bugs, great price!"
Being on the side of the mountain, I was amazed not to find any bugs, the room was spotless! It's the size of an apartment, the beds are comfortable, and the a/c works great. The staff is friendly and helpful, by far the best price of all the hotels around. It has a small fridge and microwave, very helpful when traveling with children. The shower was […] exceptional (no tub, though) also huge. The breakfast that's included it's a bit small, and the friendly bees where buzzing around, but it was tasty! We stayed in room #6 & #7, which are separate from the main building. I loved everything about this hotel, and would definitively stay there next time! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel Plaza Yara"
We stayed in this hotel for one week. The staff were all very accommodating and friendly. They recommended tours and set them all up for us. We also received food, dessert and drink spot suggestions. All of which turned out to be great! The pool area was unfortunately under construction when we there, which was a bit disappointing. My friend and I didn't […] feel comfortable being there with several men fixing the roof. After a long day at the beach or after going on a tour a quick dip in the pool in the extreme heat would have been extremely welcome, especially because of the convenience of not having to travel to do it. During my stay it happened to be my birthday and my father called the hotel to have a cake arranged for me, which they obliged to do. The hotel itself is beautiful with enormous rooms, great breakfast and conveniently located. A block away is a bus you can take for 280 colones which is about 60 US cents. It will take you into Quepos which is the local town. It will also take you to Manuel Antonio which is where the beach and national park are located. They're about equidistant from the hotel, 15 or so mins in either direction and come every 15/20 mins until 7pm. I do recommend renting a car to get around because otherwise the cost of taxi's everywhere certainly adds up and walking anywhere at night is difficult. One complaint I did have was that once the cleaning service finished cleaning the room we can back to an unlocked door. Thankfully the area is safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel was in the middle of everything"
The hotel was in the middle of everything, and close to the public bus stop. The bus was easy to use and very inexpensive. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly! Dillion, Javier, Jonathon, and Nelson were awesome. The breakfast was always good and the housekeepers were great as well. I can't thank all of the staff enough for making out visit […] EXCEPTIONAL!!! When we return to Costa Rica, we will definitely be staying at Hotel Plaza Yara again. I will also be telling all of my friends to stay there. The wildlife was amazing and came to visit many times. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very nice. Helpful staff. Great breakfast. Monkeys sometimes around the beautiful outdoor breakfast nook. Can be a little noisy from the street and not walking distance to the beach or park - but easy drive or bus. Also great art gallery.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for money"
Were pretty lucky to find a vacancy in this gem! Low price, big, clean, modern flat-like rooms with an equipped kitchen that have space for an entire family. The breakfast was rich and tasted great and the staff was extremely nice & helpful! As for the location issue that was brought up in earlier reviews, it is on the road and not that close to the […] national park, we had a car so that wasn't an issue, but the bus station is really close by and that shouldn't be an issue to anyone. The only place I'm going to stay in when I come back to the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Wow! We enjoyed this hotel tremendously. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They recommended a place to eat one afternoon and it was superb! The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The next time I go to the area, I will definately stay at Plaza Yara!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel for price!!!"
Just stayed there for three nights with my husband. For the price, everything was excellent. The staff was very friendly!!! The only thing that wasn't great was the mattress, but I can deal with that for 4 days. The decor was nice, it was clean, and very roomy. Had a little kitchen area with microwave, sink and refrigerator, great for snacks and drinks. […] The location was PERFECT, close enought to Manuel Antonio Park, and a few minutes from the city center (Quepos). Overall great experience :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

WE are arealready planning a second stay for next year and using the Plaza Yara as the HQ. The room was wonderful...windows opened tot he forest full of monkeys, but the kitchen, coffee-maker(with coffee, sugar and milk...not the yucky stuff) was great. Good breakfast, nice companions...staff was friendly and helpful. Wish I could "clone" it for all […] my travel.Room service from SALT restaurant, which is rare in a hotel at this price.

"Comfortable and Scenic"
Wonderful location on the main road (but quiet) with the balconies facing the jungle. Some mornings squirrel monkeys and capuchin monkeys come visit. The breakfast area is also open to the jungle, and the food is good. The staff is terrific and helped us book a tour as well as giving us advice on others. We extended our stay because we enjoyed it so […] much! The restaurant next door, Salt, has terrific food and gives Plaza Yara guests a 10% discount. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Huge room, new bathroom, Small kitchen, privet balcony with garden view. Bus stop across the street. Bus comes every 20-30 minutes, pries is 50 c.The bus goes to Manuel Antonio park and public beach. breakfast has 3 optional.. Very good pries. staff is vary helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
I really like this hotel. It's between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Breakfast was included in our rate, and they had 3 choices of breakfast meals, along with toast, o.j., coffee and tea. The breakfast area is in their main patio/dining area which, on one side is the forest/jungle where you can see monkeys, sloths, etc. ... very entertaining. The rooms […] are enormous! Very clean and pretty modern bathrooms (with a huge shower). All the necessities in the room (coffee maker, microwave, small fridge, and even microwave popcorn). And, forget about those packets of coffee, they provide a vacuum sealed container with freshly ground coffee, so coffee drinkers ... you will love it! Javier is soooo nice and accommodating, making calls for us, recommendations, and showed us where we can catch the local bus to Manuel Antonio or Quepos. Their office is in an art gallery, with some amazing art. We had carry-ons, so didn't have enough room for anything. There are two restaurants in the hotel ... Salt (fine dining) and a pizza place. Both were really good, and convenient. If and when we visit the Manuel Antonio area, we'd stay here again. Only thing that makes the rooms a 3, is that the walls are pretty thin and easy to hear your neighbors ... but nothing that ear plugs couldn't take cake of. Pura Vida!!!

"Great price for great hotel! Helpful staff"
We were at Plaza Yara for 3 nights in the queen suite which sleeps 3 people since it has a queen bed and a twin bed, and it had a kitchen area, living area, and dining table. It very much exceeded our expectations. The hotel was very clean. They offer free breakfast from 7-10am everyday. Their location is about a 10 minute walk from Quepos downtown. […] You don't want to take the walk to the beach or Manuel Antonio from the hotel since it is quite a hike and there are no sidewalks on the main road, but we found this was the case for most hotels that you would've booked. There is a public bus that takes you anywhere from Quepos downtown up to Manuel Antonio and costs only $0.50 per person and the ride is only 5-10 minutes. So I definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to visit Quepos and Manuel Antonio park! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Two thumbs up"
This hotel was an excellent choice and I would definitely return! The room was very spacious, clean and well maintained. The staff was excellent, very welcoming, attentive and always eager to help!! Thanks Javier!! Only complaint was that the TV was too small (perhaps 20 inch), but hey with the beautiful beach down the street who needs TV.Genuine Expedia guest review
Plaza Yara is a wonderful hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The rooms and bathrooms are all remodeled. The rooms are huge, and all have a balcony overlooking the conservation/wooded area. The complimentary breakfast is excellent. The beds are very comfortable, and the a/c is wonderfully cold! The location is so close to all […] the fantastic restaurants, and Manuel Antonio Park. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel Plaza Yara was great! The people that work in the office are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect... close to Quepos and close to the national park.

"Hotel Yara in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica"
Hotel Yara was a great hotel to stay at for our two nights and 3 days. The staff were very friendly and helped with suggestions on things to do. The room was very spacious and a great value for the money. A lovely balcony to sit on in the morning or at night. The breakfast was included which was delicious! The rooms were modern/contemporary. This hotel […] backs right up to a Forrest if you are lucky you might see some monkeys climbing across the branches. Very nice pool. There are two nice places to eat right next to it. One is the Hacienda and the other is Italian pizza place. The hacienda has music at night. The Yara is super close to the Rain Forrest. Which is great to see with thru the eyes of a guide. I would definitely stay here again. I almost wish we would have stayed longer. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was nice about this hotel except the location, it was a little bit too far from the beach and/or downtown Quepos. You have to take the bus instead of walking to the place. If you don't mind to take a bus ride every time you want to go somewhere then this is the place. Hotel is nice and clean though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice little hotel. Very close to busy street, but all the rooms face away from the street. The room was very spacious and clean. Nice modern bathroom as well. We only stayed one night to get our bearings with the town of Quepos before traveling closer to Manuel Antonio. It is right on the public bus route.

"Home in Paradise"
I can't say enough about Hotel Plaza Yara. Incredible rooms, and the nicest and most hospitable guys are working in the lobby. Anything you need, they're happy to help with.

"Small and quaint hotel with BIG, amazing rooms!"
I would have never thought where the Plaza Yara Hotel was located would be a hidden gem of a hotel. The hotel only houses a select few rooms, but they are VERY spacious and beautiful! Each room overlooks this outside jungle-like area so you feel very secluded. There are even monkeys that greet the guests during breakfast-time! The quality and price […] for the hotel was unheard of and was centrally located to everything! It was right on the main road that takes guests to Manuel Antonio National Park and the beaches. A lot of great restaurants and shopping in the area as well and breathtaking views of the sunset nearby. A definite must stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect central location"
My wife and I had a fantastic honeymoon thanks to Javier and hotel plaza yarrow. Clean, comfortable, and spacious the hotel is right between Manuel Antonio national park and the city of Quepos, CR. Don't forget to visit Cody at el Hacienda for some fantastic food and great drinks. All in all, I give our experience a 10 put of 10.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Value Hotel between Downtown Quepos and Manuel Antonio Beach / Park"
Large rooms, nice balcony, great location. The worst part was the bathroom smelled terrible regardless of cleaning, perhaps a septic tank problem. However, with the door shut the room was fine. The staff was very nice and we had a very comfortable 3 night stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Plaza Yara"
This hotel was clean, beautiful, and the rooms are HUGE! Monkeys can be seen from the patio during certain times of year and the breakfast delivered to the room free of charge is an incredible advantage. It's not close to much, so a car really helps - especially on those hills! But there are two restaurants very close by. The entire town is VERY tourist-oriented, […] though. So with that comes a swift change in service from kind and genuinely interested, to very formal and polite. The staff was helpful, though, in offering advice on the many tour options available. Overall, a great option. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at Hotel Plaza Yara in July 2011. This was a beautiful place to stay going up the hill to Manuel Antonio. The price was very reasonable and included a delicious breakfast (fresh fruit, juice,breakfast breads, butter, yogurt, and a couple of granola bars that we saved for later) that was delivered to the balcony of our room. While there is […] no view of the ocean (it is on other side of road), glass doors open to a beautiful patio with surrounding jungle. There is a good restaurant/bar next door that has live music some nights. Our room was very large with a sitting area, and the bathroom had a very large shower. There was also a wet bar area with a small refrigerator and a microwave, as well as some complimentary popcorn. There was also a small pool. We were very surprised to find such amenities for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing Hotel, Excellent Value"
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and liked it so much we came back for another long weekend. The rooms are beautiful, spacious, and impeccably clean. Breakfast is included and delivered to your room each morning. The location is excellent; although there's no ocean view it is a quick 5 minute bus ride to both Manuel Antonio's beaches and Quepos. […] And it is a very safe area. The bus is VERY cheap, and you will have to take it regardless of what hotel you stay at (most are not within walking distance of the beach). The staff at Plaza Yara made us feel at home, and were helpful with arranging tours in the area. I highly recommend Plaza Yara!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
