The view was spectacular. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The food was excellent. The pool was great. And the locations was also excellent. The stairs were fine but could be a problem for some. And the rooms were narrow and tight, bit a decent value considering the location.
Best quality of service I have ever received at a hotel - the staff went above and beyond my expectations. Nothing!
What a delightful hotel. Pure luxury in a jungle environment. They saw to our every need including having our own valet. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. You must eat at their restaurant, easily the best in Manuel Antonio. We highly recommend staying at Gaia.
This place was fantastic - impeccable staff. The food is unbelievably good. We had almost everything on the menu and the deserts are insane. There's a band that plays every night - they sing in Spanish and English - everything from Tangos to Top 40 - really fun. One night, there was an incredible opera singer who performed three songs in 3 languages (I think she was staying there too)! The owners walk around to every table at breakfast and dinner to introduce themselves and see if there's anything you need - very cool. It's also designed with an eco-conscious sensibility. The owners said they are a carbon-neutral business - the oxygen produced by the rainforest on their land offsets their carbon footprint, etc. Not to mention the 1-hour long walk you can take through the rainforest on the property is wonderful. All said, we had the best time here and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to focus on the fun. We'll be back for sure.
Great facility, staff, clean and nicely decorated room, fabulous restaurant, beautiful ocean/jungle view
Clean, spacious rooms, beautiful grounds, plentiful breakfast. Good location close to MA park and beaches! Some other hotels in the area might be closer and/or have beach views, but Plaza Yara will be hard to beat for the price and amenities!
The room was very large. The staff was helpful and the pool was a plus.
We enjoyed our first class stay from the moment we arrived on this lovely property. The front desk person greeted us warmly and we felt like family right away. They upgraded us without even asking and our room with the beach view was immaculate, adorable and had an amazing view. The breakfasts every morning were truly delicious, I am a vegetarian, a bit on the fussier side and the breakfast was a 10 and the portions fed me for both lunch and dinner. My husband and I would stay there next time as well.
Hotel Verde Mar is a great property located on the beach and walking distance to Manuel Antonio National Park. The Rooms are spacious and very clean and the hotel staff were great! We saw monkeys, sloths and iguanas on site.
The beach Room smelled like mildew, I had a view of behind the bar (sink,workers,dishes)..not a good experience at all!!!!
Chef Gabriel's food was absolutely SUPERB! ( Prob the best fried fish EVER and the best seafood pasta dish we ever had! ) Our waiter / host Alex was amazing for all three days we were there. The location was great as well. We got to see monkeys and sloths play from our balcony and had amazing views of the ocean! Breakfast was great every morning! Chef Robert was very inconsistent. The first night he was our chef, he provided us with an amazing soup and a very good ( but over priced ) pasta special. The last night, we were hoping to end our trip with an amazing meal and instead, we got a raw fish ( supposed to be fried fish ) and a pasta dish that was mediocre.
The fantastic view surrounded by the incredible natural beauty. Also the private setting at the top of the hill. Wonderful breakfast and the staff was very helpful. Only one working outlet in unit. It was in the kitchen. Would have been nice to have had outlet by bath.
