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...

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....

We stayed at Hotel Plaza Yara for 2 nights in February. We did lots of research before booking a hotel in Manuel Antonio, and this was by far the best option for the money we wanted to spend.

We loved this hotel! It was spacious, clean, well staffed, and set in a beautiful, convenient location.

It was delicious. It was also next door to a wonderful...

We spent 3 very enjoyable nights at the Plaza Yara. The staff were extremely friendly & helpful and the room was great (#3). The room was probably 15' x 30' and decorated very modern.
