    Great property, clean rooms and excellent location. Parking is just in front of the main street, so you are a little scared of leaving the car all night long, but there's security. Reception is only open during the day, so anything you need afterwards you need to talk to security or call the manager's cell phone. Internet Access leaves a lot to be desired. Based on several tests, there's only like 5-10MB available for guests. Which these day and age, let's the user basically just answer emails and check a few pages and nothing more. They are using Internet from a local cable provider, which is not the best Internet access there is (since bandwitdh is shared between the zone, and is not exclusive for the Hotel). They should really switch to Fiber Optic Internet, and for an Hotel this size, they should have at least 50 or 100MB available (so guests can relax at the end of the night with some netflix, etc). Fiber Optic is already available from local company Kolbi, and is much more superior. This was my only gripe.

    Excellent boutique hotel

    Amazing, first time for me and my wife, excellent boutique hotel, Nelson the GM and his staff were great, best service, we are a custom to Swissotel overseas, and we got the same treatment at the Plaza Yara, very clean, peaceful and Serene, overlooking beautiful wild preserve, our suite was very spacious, beds are very comfortable, The Wi-Fi you can watch Netflix on it, the included breakfast was very good, coffee is incredible, extremely pleasant and professional staff, security guard, cleaning ladies, cook, José, Caleb. The hotel is in the center less than 2 km from everything, beaches, the marina, shopping, supermarkets and a ton of great restaurants at every level of pricing. Considering it was our honeymoon they made it more memorable for us. But the star of the show you will meet when you visit the hotel, YARA.

    Hotel Yara is a great and affordable hotel just minutes down the road from the beaches and park. My wife and I are travelling and working virtually so their extremely fast internet was enough to take zoom calls all day every day. They have an extremely helpful and friendly staff. And their breakfasts were AMAZING! We are also travelling on a budget so their little kitchenette had just enough to make a few small meals.
