I was there on business, a seminar in this secluded place and a wonderful hotel, it was a good place for it. The hotel is very good. The "classic" style and decoration probably does not match with the environment, but rooms are good, same for the meetings. The beach close to the hotel is better than Manuel Antonio's main beach,...

Unfortunately my travel company rated this hotel as the only first class hotel of my itinerary so my expectations were very high when I got to it. The outside grounds shows first class but as you continue the tour you realize it is not a first class hotel, not to say it is not a good hotel but not first... More

Hotel Parador was the perfect resort to kickoff the first leg of our trip in Costa Rica. I couldn't think of a better hotel to soothe your traveling woes than by drinking a Coco-Loco at the swim up bar. We can't speak more highly of the staff here. Every person we encountered was sincere and genuinely invested in us having... More

We spent 5 days here over the Christmas period. We mostly enjoyed our time here but most things were just not great. The service was good and efficient but not very personal. The food was generally good at dinner if it was a la carte, however, the buffet was average quality and the breakfast lacked choice and the quality was,... More

I realised I'd never added to my posting about this hotel from 7 Feb 2014 when I reported that the hotel had not dealt with a cancelled booking due to ill health well. After posting the review the hotel contacted me they had not been told of the situation from their booking agent. They behaved impeccably and swiftly gave me... More

Hotel Parador is abeautifulfacility set into a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They did a fabulous job of integrating the buildings into the natural surroundings. The property is not small, so there is a bit of walking necessary, and it is not very handicap accessible, however there was a guest in a wheel chair that seemed to get around. Attendants... More

The hotel is quaint with lovely details throughout. You don't need to go to the park- just sit on your balcony and wait. I saw a sloth, monkeys, iguanas, toucans, pelicans and lots of other birds from the comfort of my balcony. And the food- I haven't had such superb food outside a michelin starred restaurant. Try the tuna steak-superb.... More

What a beautiful place. There are monkeys just running around the grounds, the pools and decks are absolutely breath taking, the food is surprisingly good (with lots of options), and the rooms are perfect. I miss having coffee on our balcony as the sun rose over the ocean each morning. We stayed in the lowest-level room, and it was still... More

Gorgeous gorgeous property. Our travel agent booked this place for us and we just glanced at the website and thought it looked fine. When we arrived and were greeted with a cold towel and fruity icy welcome drink I realized what we'd stepped into. The hotel is impeccable. The grounds, the gardens, service...very impressive. The pools are lovely and plentiful.... More
