My husband and I stayed three nights at Parador. Our suite was lovely and clean. All of the staff were bilingual and were very professional and helpful. The hotel grounds were beautiful, and we saw almost as many animals on the hotel's monkey trail as we did in Manuel Antonio National Park. The breakfast was very tasty with made to... More

This hotel has gorgeous views! Is really clean and has great very helpful staff! How could you go wrong seeing 3 different kinds of monkeys right outside the rooms! Great restaurant with really good breakfast and dinner. There is plenty to do on the hotel grounds themselves but also really short walk to the public beach. Overall just a great... More

My sister and I spent three nights at the Hotel Parador. We had a fabulous time. The hotel is beautiful and the setting is breathtaking. All the staff members are so friendly and can't do enough to help you out. We particularly enjoyed the two excursions we made with a guide from the hotel. We did a tour of Manuel... More

I had the most amazing experience here at the Parador. There's three beautiful pools, the swim up bar and restaurant was great. The hotel service was very helpful and all fluent in English! The grounds are beautiful to explore and there is a monkey trail right on the property. The buffet was delicious and the happy hours were great! We... More

The setting is a jungle paradise. Monkeys, sloths, tons of birds (even the occasional Toucan) and reptiles will entertain you at the pool. While the wonderful, kind and caring staff will help you with anything else you need. The hotel is built in a jungle on the side of a super steep hill and the nickname of Hotel Stair Master,...

Parador was everything we were looking for and so much more. I booked everything from the room (Premium) to an itinerary full of tours, In Shore fishing, Mangrove fishing, National park tour and the Crocodile Scarlet Macaw tour from e-mail correspondence through their website. I couldn't have written a script that would have come out so smoothly. So many greeting,... More

Not enough can be said about the wonderful Hotel Parador. The rooms have fantastic views of the grounds overlooking the Pacific. It's a short walk to a beautiful beach where you can see howlers, white faced and Squirell monkeys. The service staff was fantastic. Our waiter David greeted us by name each time we dined and was genuinely interested in... More

We very much enjoyed our 3 days here. We had a Premium room which overlooked the Pacific Ocean - wonderful. There are three swimming pools, so always quiet, with a wet bar in one - all overlooking the ocean. A bit of a hike down to the nearby beach, but very much worth it. The hotel also had a small...

What a wonderful experience. We travel abroad 4 months of every year with our kids. Rarely are our hotel experiences as relaxing and full as this one. While we adults were greeted with fresh juice and cool, scented cloths our children were given icecream sandwiches from Pops along with the cloths (which came in handy wiping sticky mouths).
