The room is very spacious and has a great decor. The location is good for a quiet nights sleep. I liked that they have a kitchen with microwave and coffee maker. We were able to save money on dinner & lunch by getting food from the grocery store and preparing it. The local grocery store (a 5 min drive), has...

This is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at in my travels anywhere. It deserves 6 stars. You cannot beat it for the price. We stayed three nights in room 12 - maybe the best suite offered! The rooms are large and decorated in a very modern style. The beds were comfortable. There is a TV, desk, and seating...

Absolutely wonderful! Having a beautiful suite overlooking the jungle and pool made us anniversary trip that much more special. The service was great; thank you Nelson for such an amazing stay at Manuel Antonio. The staff was helpful with local tips about transportation and restaurants, ensuring their guests' stays were perfect. Highly recommend this hotel!

When I was looking for an hotel in Manuel Antonio most of the options were really expensive. I finally found out this option but I need to confess that I was concerned because the price was too cheap compared with the others. I'm glad to tell that this was a nice surprise. The room was really big and comfortable and...

The rooms are HUGE and beautiful! And I wanted to take the decorations home they were so nice. HUGE shower, kitchenette, balcony with a view... The only bad thing was my bed was kind of uncomfortable. But I slept on the smaller cot-like one.. My friend got the queen! The pool is small but it's surrounded by trees where some...

Great hotel with large rooms, a very nice bathroom, Wifi in your room, a small kitchen and airco. Would recommend this place to young travellers. The publicatie beach and national park are a few km away. So own transportation is a plus. We went here with two couples and had a great time here. The staff is really friendly and...

My sister and I were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room at Plaza Yara. It was huge and very modern. For the price we got it for I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it was. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and filling (something I always look for). We...
