This hotel is located just outside of Quepos on the drag heading to Manuel Antonio National Park. There is a bus stop within a block and it's just a short bus ride for about 50 cents to get to the park entrance or the beach. The room, while beautiful, was very dark. Given the humidity of the area, we spread...

This hotel was great. Good breakfast. Decent price. It's on the main road of all hotels. Everyone recommended we take taxis everywhere - the grocery store, the beach, the restaurants - which we did. Sometimes we would walk 30 minutes to these places, if you don't mind the exercise up and down hills :).

First of all, the rooms at this place are huge and immaculately clean. The bathroom is also large and modern. They give you coffee, milk, and sugar each day. We stayed in room 12, which had a little outdoor table and chairs setup by the pool. Breakfast was delicious! The pool was on the smaller side, but it was great....

Nice place, backing onto rainforest, extremely friendly and helpful staff, decent breakfast choice, outside parking. The room was very large. On the road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio so useful if you have a car. If not, the bus stops outside every 15 minutes, and there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance (mainly at hotels). There is a...

This hotel is about a 15 minute bus ride from the beach at Manuel Antonio. The bus stop is close to the hotel and it costs less than a dollar each way. If you are looking to save some money by not staying at the beach this is a very nice option. Breakfast is included and you get to choose...

We visited Costa Rica last week for our first time and stayed in Plaza Yara. This hotel is beautiful, cultural, modern, spacious, and conveniently located in between the town of Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. The staff is incredibly friendly; they are very knowledgeable of the area and booked our activities and recommended delicious restaurants. I was very pleased...

I stayed at Hotel Plaza Yara in March 2013. The stay was wonderful. Jonathan was extremely helpful, calling taxis (we didn't want to deal with renting a car), recommending restaurants and things to do. The rooms were much larger and much nicer than we expected, given the price point. The morning breakfast on the patio was delightful each day we...

The hotel was so quiet... just the sounds of the jungle at night . We had a stick bug on our balcony one night, and a glass frog another night... It was everything we had hoped for. In addition, it was Valentine's day, and we had a 4ft deep outdoor pool all to ourselves all night in complete silence (except...

Havier and Nelson were great at helping us explore the city. They were very accommodating. This hotel was very clean with a gorgeous breakfast view. We saw a howling monkey during breakfast! I strongly recommend this hotel!!!
