What a lovely spot! A friend and I spent three nights at Hotel Plaza Yara and we're thrilled with our stay. Great staff (Jonathan was wonderful!), huge rooms, spotless, quiet. We loved spending our afternoons on the patio watching the local wildlife put on shows. Highly recommend!

Overall I felt this hotel was a good value for $100 / night. The lobby was pretty with lots of art, the free breakfast was quite good: same menu every day, but generous portions and good food, I enjoyed the fruit plate. Good A/C in the room. Plenty of wildlife around the hotel, we saw a gang of small monkeys...

We stayed at Plaza Yara for three days and were very impressed. When friends ask about our trip to Costa Rica we always say how much we enjoyed our stay there. We got great advice on places to eat nearby. Loved watching the sloth in the jungle from the pool. It was the cleanest and most comfortable place we stayed...

Hotel is well located. Room was huge and very clean. Clean and large bathroom. Good view on the back forest with animals. Great service at the front desk from Javier. They even moved up breakfast for us so we can make it early to the national park.

We stayed at the Plaza Yara for two nights @ the end of an eight day trip to CR. The hotel is absolutely beautiful with an art gallery for its reception area. The breakfasts were excellent. There were monkeys, sloths and lizards all around the property. Javier and the other staff were amazingly helpful. They made good recommendations for meals,...

We stayed for 2 nights this past week. The rooms were super clean and large, with a comfortable sitting area. We luckily had a balcony that looked out onto the pools and jungle. The daily breakfast was wonderful; you choose from 4-5 menu options and were quickly given a plate filled with the main dish, lots of fresh fruit, toast,...
