After a rather long drive from San Jose (some in the dark) this place was a sight for sore eyes! We were warmly greeted with fresh scented towels to wipe our faces and hands which along with the fruity drink was refreshing and welcoming. No elevator but the housestaff carried our bags to our room which was spacious and had... More

We had just come off staying at rustic cabins in La Fortuna and Monteverde and the Parador was exactly what the doctor ordered to end our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel is beautiful with amazing views of the pacific. You really get the best of both worlds. Our room looked out on the lush rainforest on the property and... More

We were on top floor of 300 building and had a lovely view of the gardens. We had monkeys jumping from the trees right in front of our balcony ! Loved it ! Staff was very polite... More

Our room was very spacious, with a great view of the gardens. Nice and clean, too. We were excited to hear howler monkeys outside our room each morning when we awoke. The hotel provides a great breakfast. We asked the staff to fry some "queso blanco" for us to have with our fruit, rice, beans, bread, and jelly, and it... More

Stayed here recently for 3 days and had a fantastic time. Our room was all the way at the top with jungle and water views from our balcony. Our first day there, we had several monkeys and even a toucan right outside our balcony- How cool is that! This place is truly amazing with multiple infinity pools, beautiful lush manicured... More

On the property we saw many sloths, one right near the office in a tree! From our room in the morning we saw all kinds of birds and monkeys at sunrise! The monkey trail there was great to see animals too. The staff was always helpful and polite! The pools were not freezing so I could actually enjoy swimming! We... More

That this place considers itself to be a luxury hotel is beyond laughable. The amounts charged are insane for the "value". Worst so-called luxury hotel I've ever been to and I travel a lot. The other hotels we visited during our trip to Costa Rica were great (and I have reviewed them accordingly). Spend your money somewhere else. Internet -... More

We arrived here to a much needed 6 day recouperation. The hotel staff, especially the restaurant staff are extremely welcoming and very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The lady restaurant manager was so hard working - there at breakfast and dinner - and always with a smile on her face, despite the need for tables. Her staff were very... More
