Beautiful outdoor feeling hotel with 360 degree views of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world!

We stayed at Hotel Parador with 4 teenagers (ages 14-16) and found it a wonderful paradise (even with teenagers). The room comes with a wonderful buffet breakfast that satisfied every palate in our family (from omelets to rice and beans and cake). After a hearty breakfast, we were able to arrange for tours through the hotel (surfing, parasailing, ziplining and... More

We stayed at Hotel Parador with our two kids, ages 9 & 10 and we have only good things to say about the place! My review is mainly for families with kids.

Yes, it is a bit pricey, but worth it. We stayed in a "tropical" room, which doesn't quite get you an ocean view but it still was excellent. Extremely clean & comfortable room.This put us in a high-rise building at the edge of the property which was much quieter than the main pool area. This building has its own pool... More

The resort is beautiful. Free breakfast buffet was better than normal. Lunch and dinner prices were extreme so we ate at restaurants down the road. The pools were warm, the staff very friendly, and the jungle setting was beautiful. Lots of birds and monkeys.

Beautiful resort, manicured gardens all over, very spread out so you can go on walks. there's 3 pools, the main one allowing kids. Its also an amazing pool as it has views overlooking the ocean and a bar and restaurant, all right there and that's pretty much where we spent most of our time. Very comfy rooms, large soft beds,...

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Parador Resort & Spa travelling with two adults and two teens (ages 13 & 16). The service was good and the greeting you receive when you arrive (a cool drink and towel) is very welcoming. We stayed in a Premium Guest Room (#413) with 2 queen beds (seemed more like doubles). The room... More

A lovely hotel, we stayed in a cheaper Garden room which was in a single storey block of 3 rooms, which opened up onto a patio area with a table and chairs and a grassed area, the room was clean and big enough for us, and had all the amenities you need.
