We have just returned to Canada from a visit to Costa Rica which included our second wonderful stay at the Parador Resort & Spa located just outside Manuel Antonio National Park.

My husband and I got married at Hotel Parador on 11.11.11....from the moment that we arrived at the resort at 3:30 a.m., the service was amazing! They arranged our transportation for us and had staff at the front doors waiting to greet us upon our arrival. We stayed in the vista suite, which was so beautiful, clean, modern, and had... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and, believe me, I had no clue what to expect--especially once we hit the road outside the airport in San Jose! I guess I wasn't prepared for the culturalistic differences; as in the lack of street signs and a Mickey D's around every corner. Needless to say, the journey to the hotel... More

Hotel Pardor has beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms and the views across the property are all magnificent. The hotel staff is courteous and helpful and you should plan to ask them to plan your excursions. Recommend the sunset cruise, zipline, and park tour! Would definitely go back!

SHALOM! Our recent honeymooners guests from Israel pretty much summed up what Parador is all about in their very kind comments. Service; non-stop service, even from the monkeys!

We were only in Costa Rica for 2 nights to check out a venue for our wedding. The hotel has an OLD feel to it... and the staff was not the friendliest.
