Stayed here with my friend for three nights in April. We LOVED this hotel. When we first arrived we were surprised to see an art gallery. The gallery and hotel itself is filled with very cool paintings and art. The rooms are modern, clean and spacious. And the AC and Wifi worked great. We had a room with one queen...

We stayed at Plaza Yara for 2 nights. We had suite 4 which was huge with a lovely kitchen balcony area that overlooked the forest and pool. Staff could not have been more helpful.

This property exceeded expectations. The suites are spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom is well designed with a large shower and good water pressure and abundant hot water.

The room was fantastic, large and airy, with spacious walk in shower in the bathroom. We were greeted with a troup of squirrel monkeys playing in the trees opposite the hotel and later in the trees by our balcony. Fresh coffee, milk and popcorn provided everyday, and the staff were very helpful with lots of advice and information about the...

I really can't say enough about the quality of this hotel. The pictures don't do the hotel justice. I've never been to CR but was kind of expecting the room to be a little dirty, a little dingy, etc but was very pleasantly surprised! The modern decor was great, and everything was very clean and well maintained. The bed was...

We spent a week at this hotel in February. The staff are pleasant and very helpful. It is 5 minutes drive to the Manuel Antonio park and its beautiful sandy beaches.
