I did my research on hotels in MA and honestly, we wanted to stay at the Hotel Parador, but we had a hard time communicating with them. After a week of constant agonizing emails, I decided that maybe this was a sign, so I went with our second choice (Si como no) and boy am i glad i did.
This hotel was absolutely amazing. This was the best vacation we have ever had and can't wait to go back. Since we booked only a few weeks before our arrival, the hotel was almost sold out so we ended up with a deluxe suite (room 54). The room and the view were amazing. The breakfast at the hotel (included) was awesome. They serve everything under the sun you can imagine and it was all delicious!
There are no tv's in the room and that made me hesitant, but it proved to be the best part of our vacation. Also there is a very high tech movie theater (a hollywood movie producer owns the property) that shows very current movies at night. As some of the previous reviewers said, the hotel staff is extremely attentative and can arrange about anything for you. We felt very pampered!
On a side note, we ate at the Marlin Restaurante right next to the park entrance on the beach, and it was our best meal (and so cheap)! We also ate at Ronnie's Place and that was very good too, but a little expensive. The Rico Tico (at Si Como No)was a great lunch place and everything was so fresh!
My only advice, stay longer than 3 days.... its really hard to leave!
