We absolutely loved Hotel Parador!! The setting is beautiful, the staff is great, our suites were so nice! It is a wonderful place to relax after all the activities the Manuel Antonio area has to offer. Would love to go back again!

The Hotel Parador is located at the end of the Punta Quepos Road overlooking the ocean on two sides. The hotel has a Spanish Conquistador theme with coats of armor and model sailing galleons in the lobby. Unfortunately the room we requested was unavailable, but the staff more than made up for it by upgrading us to a Vista Suite... More

My family and I spent one night at this hotel. Its basically a ritz carlton or four seasons type hotel. Very nice, great customer service, good food and amenities. It also comes with a hefty price tag.

Following our first hotel experience in Costa Rica we were really looking forward to going to the Parador. Unfortunately it wasn't quite the experience we hoped for and disappointingly, not the 4-star experience it promised either. Location was good, gardens were good but the rooms, dining and pool left a lot to be desired. We were in Premium Plus rooms,... More

We are staying at Hotel Parador for three nights until Monday May 25th. The grounds of the Parador are lovely - wonderful walking trails, abundant bird life, great views, and a beautiful infinity pool. Unfortunately, the hotel did not inform us that the hotel was under some major renovations. The infinity pool was closed and cordoned off with yellow tape,... More

Dear Guest, We apologize for the closure of the infinity pool during your visit—we hope you were able to take advantage of our other two pools, one of which has an infinity edge view that rivals the main pool. The casual restaurant on the second floor closes during low season but our menus at La Galería and poolside offers many... More

The views from the hotel are spectacular. The rooms are spacious and airy. The staff is very accommodating. There are convenient shuttles that take you over to the National Park area which is great for hikes and wildlife viewings.
