This hotel is on very nice location, top of the hill. Lovely 3 different pool, warm water. You can also choose adult pool. Very nice food, but bit expensive. About $29 each or buffer $29. Good cocktails and happy hour. Very big room with ground floor balcony Room 205. Staff was very good all-around and helpful. Lovely early morning walks... More

Last stay on our Costa Rican adventure for family of 4. Great hotel when travelling with kids. VERY clean, the grounds were beautiful. We loved laying by the pool and seeing a lizard scurry under our chair, we got to see a sloth on the grounds and the views were amazing. The breakfast had a great selection/service and the swim...

They have beautiful paintings. You will be spoiled to no extent. Great destination for kids - They give you free chocolates (if you find them). Supply crayons and a pad to color. Also a fun coloring book. TV is huge. Multiple pools. Colorful sunset. Nice beach close by. Cars coming to pick you up from there.

My wife and I really enjoyed out honeymoon at the Parador. It's far enough on the mountain where u don't feel stifled by the town below, but close enough to the restaurants and shops. Really can't complain about too much as the staff at Parador was always more than willing to go the extra mile to make their guests comfortable.... More

Just so many good things to say about the Parador. My husband and myself spent our final 6 nights at the hotel following two weeks travelling from the east coat across to the Pacific. A wonderful warm welcome (literally) as the sun was shining and we were greeted with cool towels and a delicious drink. Arriving early meant our room... More

Very nice hotel, terrific views and very professional staff. You check in at the gate and three minutes later when you arrive at the front desk they are greeting you by name and providing a welcome drink. We had a top floor room with a balcony jacuzzi (ocean view) as well as a "package" that included a couples spa package... More

I spent 4 days at Hotel Parador in this lovely national reserve in January 2015. We arrived with a party of 20 for a business trip/getaway and were greeted at the entrance by some of their high staff and event organizers. From then on, we were treated with the highest respect, without having to feel like you were in an... More

Beautiful Spacious rooms. Luxury. Staff are fantastic, helpful, and accommodating. Many pools, great views, walk to the beach, do the monkey trails and go to the Manual Antonio National Park. And the public beach. Lots to do and the sun is hot!

After a few days to and through the Cloud Forest and Arenal Volcano, we were looking forward to some time in the sun to relax and take in the beautiful sunsets and nature around Manuel Antonio.

We stayed in a Pacific Vista Suite for two nights as part of a group tour. Since this was included in our tour, I cannot speak to the price but the suite was spacious with a private hot tub on our deck and sweeping views of the resort and the Pacific. Very large with double vanity, large tub, walk-in shower.... More
