Reviewed 20 June 2012

Great hotel, and the staff could not have been more helpful. I traveled with my 78-yr old mother, and they made sure we had an easy-access room, up a ramp. The room was big, and clean, and we got free microwave popcorn! We ate at both the restaurants attached, and both were very good. The breakfast at the hotel was the best we had in Costa Rica--the gallo pinto was the best of all the varieties I had. Jonathan and Javier also helped us with every little thing we asked about--went out of their way more than once, even making sure we could get a good breakfast before our 6 AM pickup. Good water pressure, and hot water, which was NOT the case at many of our other hotels. We also got to sit on a great balcony and watch hummingbirds, sloth, and a whole troop of spider monkeys.
The public bus was a few minutes walk, so it was easy to get into either Quepos or Manuel Antonio. Beds were very comfortable--could have used a few more outlets, I guess, and wireless signal was stronger from the Pizza restaurant below us than the hotel, but other than those minor things it was fabulous!

Room Tip: We had Room #1, easy access to pool.

Love the Hotel! Beautiful and spacious. Very clean. Convenient location, minutes away from Manuel Antonio. We took the bus to the national park, which only cost 50 cents. The staff, Javier and Nelson were AMAZING! Extremely helpful and nice, helped in planning/booking excursions and the rest of our trip. By far one of my favorite hotels. Would definitely stay again.

I fell in love with the place mainly because the office where you check in was actually an art gallery. Finally a place that featured local art. THe hotel room was a mix of modern contemporary with a warm spanish flare. Bed was very comfortable...AC worked quite well...the bathrooms were spacious and new, very clean. The floors were a mix of colored concrete and wood...loved it. Our window overlooked a tropical paradise. The staff...especially Javier was super nice. I will definately recommend to anyone visiting Manuel Antonio. WIll stay there again on my next visit.

Plaza Yara is the best. Look at photos and see how great it is. The spacious rooms - spotless clean- quite . You can hear the sounds of jungle at night. I am a return visitor and just want to say I wont go anywhere else. Read the reviews and know that everything positive that is said is true. If anything is negative disregard it. Trust me as one who have traveled for 30 years you will not be disappointed n your accomaditoions or breakfast.

you will need to travel by bus that passes by on the one road to everywhere. You up to Quepos 1.5 kilometer down to Manuel Antonio. We found a great place to eat. we had a group of 17 we ate in the same small soda (cafe) down the road five minutes. It is calle Resturante Angel. Small staff you will have to wait for your food while they prepare it. 15 teenager thought it was worth the wait so you can consider that a recomendation.

If the management of the hotel recommends any activity then listen to them . They know what they are talking about.

Room Tip: I have been in most rooms. they are all nice

My sister and I loved this hotel and could not believe how enormous our room was. We were in room 6 and the view was lovely. We ate at La Hacienda - the service and pina coladas were excelente! The driving in Costa Rica was difficult in general. The drive up to the hotel was not nearly the scariest we encountered on the trip, but our SUV had some trouble climbing the steep inclines. The concierge was very helpful and booked an awesome kayaking/snorkeling excursion for us. The hotel lobby pets were adorable. I highly, highly, highly recommend this hotel.
