What a great experience! The hotel has an amazing old world charm to it. The rooms are large and comfortable with great views allowing for wild life spotting. The swimming pools are large and spotlessly clean, but there is a shortage of lounges when the hotel is at capacity. I cannot say enough about the great staff. Everyone was eager... More

I had a great stay at Hotel Parador. We were upgraded to a big suite with a beautiful view of the pacific ocean. The grounds are really nice, the restaurant was good and we spent many hours enjoying the pool.

This hotel has anything you can expect for relaxing. It has excellent views to the ocean. I loved the room because you feel in the nature but with all the commodities you can expect. Fine decorated and excellent for a good sleep. The staff is very friendly and always they are looking for how they can help you. Also the... More

Awesome stay! I would highly recommend Parador for families and couples. Very clean, plenty or room to roam around and the breakfast buffet in the morning was great. Couple things to remember - limited food options on site so you may get tired of the options quick and the activity planning booth is overpriced, they take a cut and you... More

We stayed in 3 hotels for our visit in Costa Rica. The first one was more for rest and relaxation. This one we were ready for more activity. We loved the view we had from our room. We walked the monkey trail a couple of times. Walking to the beach was a short but difficult hike. It is beautiful and... More

What a beautiful view from our rooms and from the family pool! The many amenities were perfect for all members of our family, from 11 to 72! The hotel staff was exceptional. They were very friendly and helpful. It's close to many great things to do. (Don't miss the national park!) The rooms and the grounds are perfectly kept. The... More

The hotel and grounds are gorgeous! All of the staff were nice offering a warm reception by name with a fresh fruit drink. We enjoyed the warmer family pool and the view that came with it. When we called to request creamer for our in-room coffee (although that was never brought, my husband walked down to the restaurant) they made... More

Spend the money and get the Ocean Vista Suite! You won't be disappointed! Buffet breakfast with an omelet station is included in the price and the food is delicious! The whole facility is safe, secure, and beautiful! You'll love it! They'll take you, via golf cart, to the beach cove, but then it's a hike down, wear water shoes, and... More

Quite honestly, we had a fairly negative experience at the Hotel Parador while there at the end of May. The hotel advertised multiple restaurants and pools up until (and still after we arrived!) The first day we arrived my husband and I decided to take a walk around, check out the grounds and look at restaurant menus. As we walked... More
