Great hotel near National Park
Location of the hotel was great. Right on main road but quiet and view from room was to the back and very private. Large room with kitchen and sitting area. Breakfast was excellent and service very prompt and attentive. Close to many restaurants but not easy to walk as on main road. We did tour the National Park with a group scheduled through the concierge prior to our arrival and all as expected.

Lush jungle and modern amenities
Very modern, cool gallery reception/lounge space with beautiful Costa Rican inspired art by on site artist. Breakfast room, lounge spaces, pool spaces are well appointed, well maintained. The pool space and back deck lounge space face a lush jungle like garden; watch native birds like Tanagers flit amongst the trees. Every night I saw red macaws fly overhead to their roosts near the coast. Very close proximity to Quepos, Manual Antonio National Park, beaches, and many other natural Costa Rican attractions.

Best Hotel in Manuel Antonio
The place is beautiful: furniture, rooms, pool. The rooms are huge and so cozy and comfortable is awesome. The staff is super friendly and willing to help at all times. O will go back to this hotel over and over again, I have stay in many hotels and Manuel Antonio and Plaza Yara is the only one I will recommend.

Amazing hotel
My wife and I stayed at Plaza Yara for four nights during our vacation, and we agreed it is one of our favorite hotels of all time. The property is elegantly decorated with mosaic tile all over. Our room was spacious with nice furniture and comfortable beds. The pool area is very pleasant and surrounded by lovely trees and vegetation. One morning there was a sloth in a tree near the patio! Breakfast was delicious with lots of options--probably the best included breakfast I've had anywhere. The staff were warm and helpful, and service was excellent. We just could not believe the quality we received for the price we paid. They even gave us a lovely gift when we checked out! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Unbelievable luxury
Staff were so helpful and friendly, Roger and Richard. Room was so incredible, modern and well designed that I want to copy that for my own bedroom!! Breakfast was fabulous, the art gallery was an absolute delight, outside the rainforest was the background to the pool and sitting area, and we had our own private patio. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, definitely will staff there and for longer next time 😁
