Stayed here for 4 nights. Lovely room in the vista suites. Great views and a sloth very close by. Food could have better in the evenings. Buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Food and drinks all pretty pricey. Staff all delightful. Gym ok,with basic equipment but serviceable. Everything very clean and well looked after

Stayed here 3 nights and loved it! We had a "premium" room. Not sure exactly what that means, but we were on the 4th floor.....room 406. We sat on the balcony and had all kinds of critters right off of our balcony at eye level. There was a sloth just 30 feet away. The monkeys came practically onto our balcony....

Firstly, the location is almost unbeatable. The amount of wildlife we saw either from where we were sitting in the hotel or in the free trek inside the hotel grounds were amazing. Resident sloth sleeping and eating in a tree right next to the pool, waking up to a chorus of howler monkeys, toucans and birds of prey flying close...

We loved hotel Parador. The resort is beautiful, wonderful pools with swim up bar, very clean. The staff were superb, very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, even the included breakfast. The spa was fabulous too, we all enjoyed our messages. We had a standard room, It was fine, but may upgrade if I went again. Highly recommend this...

I would have to say that our food was mediocre but the view, service and the animals were exceptional. I had a spider monkey steal a cherry out of my drink as it spilled it (I was not mad), the toucans were everywhere, the lizards were sunning themselves by the pool. Before we left there were 4 spider monkeys running...

First off, the hotel. Yes, some reviewers have said the decor is a little dated. The rooms are a little dated, but the rest of the hotel is perfectly modern. (Note that we stayed here coming from the Royal Corin in Arenal, which is very modern.) More importantly, the whole place is spotlessly clean. The staff are also very friendly...

The service was fabulous, the people were friendly, the food was delicious, the spa was accommodating and relaxing. This resort caters to all sorts of travelers from solo to family. Our general feeling was that they...

This was our last hotel during our nine day stay in Costa Rica. It was just what we needed, it was off the beaten path, quiet and clean. The surroundings were lovely, just enough nature to get the essence of Costa Rica, on our way back to our room at night there was often a sloth hanging around in the...
