Very warm welcome at a bright reception, filled with works of art for sale. The rooms were clean and spacious, and there were several choices at breakfast. Nice touches were the popcorn (there is a microwave), coffee and fresh milk . I did not like having to ask for a hairdryer at reception, nor the fact that there was nowhere...

The rooms are very big and very comfortable. We had a little balcony over the terrace which was nice. AC worked well which was good as it was raining lots. Most of the staff as very friendly and the goodbye gift is such a nice touch.

After 11 hour flight and 2.5 hour car journey, we wanted our first stop to be convenient and comfortable. Hotel Plaza Yara is exactly that and would recommend to anyone on a budget as a good place to stay. Staff were helpful and polite and the hotel had everything needed for a one night stay. Good size room and bathroom,...

Nelson and his staff were extremely accommodating, professional and courteous to me my fiance and our 8 month old daughter during our stay at Hotel Plaza Yara. The pool area is beautiful and the pools well kept. Beautiful flora and fauna surrounds and we saw monkeys twice while lounging in the pool, once from our spacious and well designed balcony....

We stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon travelling around Costa Rica. The staff here gave us a really lovely welcome. And the rooms were wow compared to elsewhere we'd stayed previously. I mean it was huge, even for a suite. Our massive windows overlooked a forest area and we had monkeys playing there in the morning. The...

Amazing decorated hotel. The hotel has a great look. Most hotels in costa rica are very basic looking but not plaza yara. Staff is great, rooms are huge with a big balcony. There is also a fridge and sink in the room. Everything is spotless. The banana pancakes i had for breakfast were amazing. Short ride to the NP, beach...

This is a lovely small hotel with a tremendous attention to detail that's usually found at properties 3x the price. The first floor is an art gallery worth spending some time in. There are original painting, sculptures, indigenous artwork and ceramics; all well priced. The public spaces are lovely. There are two beautiful pools that face a jungle garden and...

We had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Plaza Yara. The rooms are very large, clean and inexpensive. The balconies feel like you are sitting in the jungle, and a visit from the monkeys is always a fantastic experience. The breakfast was good and the gallery holds some impressive A great stay.
