We have just returned (25/02/2013) from the Parador after a 2 week tour of Costa Rica, 5 of these nights at the Parador no problems one wonders if the fellow trip advisor who reports the hotel as up a long dirt track had the correct hotel, the road is tarmac all the way to the front door.
Rooms OK , bathroom was a bit 3 star in design but clean and supplied with clean towels every , soap, shampoo etc every day.
Meals were ok food was not outstanding but good and matched other similar hotels we have used, waiters were excellent and all were willing to help with any problems not that there were many.
Bar was a little understocked ie limited sherry, brandy and no baileys, staff were a little standoffish .
Reception was over keen we had one person trying to book us in another handing us a hot towel, one offering a drink and yet another saying he would take our luggage , one thing at a time lads.
Pleased with security none of this one person stays and brings others in and out which is a big security risk in this day and age.
Try the small tapas restaurant in the 4 storey block for a lunch stop.
Spa not used. Also beach is a trek for us olders (70+) no problem for children, shuttle only takes you half way
Would go again
