This was the final destination on our CR tour. We stayed for 5 nights and had a beautiful room up in the tower a short walk from the main building. The room was fabulous with spectacular views. We were fortunate to have a view over the canopy on exiting the room and every morning a troop of howler monkeys were... More

We stayed here as part of a group travel arrangement. Check in was friendly and efficient. The accommodation ranges from clean, spacious and comfortable garden rooms, through plusher suites to the quite luxurious. On all counts the standards were high, with good cleanliness and maintenance. The food in the restaurant, be that breakfast or the evening Al La Carte menu... More

7 of us stayed there 4 nights and loved it. Delicious food, great baby playroom our little one spent hours in, trails, mini golf, great family and adult only pools. The views from our rooms (400 building) were beautiful and we were delighted when we had a couple of toucans stop by to visit our balcony. We also saw sloths,... More

From the moment we arrived it was wonderful. The resort provided transportation from the airport and picked us up offering chilled towels and drinks to refresh us after a long flight. The service throughout our stay was really good and consistently exceeded our expectations. I felt we were almost pushing the envelope testing their limits requesting extra things from housekeeping... More

My husband, two teenage sons and I spent five glorious days at the resort. The service was outstanding, the food wonderfully delicious, the grounds were gorgeous and the staff attentive and gracious. We saw lots of howler and spider monkeys outside our door as well as by the adult pool. A three toed "smiling sloth" entertained us by one of... More

A wonderful place offering all the luxuries one needs from a holiday. Great rooms, a choice of pools and various choices for eating. Breakfast is plentiful with a good choice and there are many activities and excursions to choose from. Very close to Manuel Antonio national park and a visit here is a must. Every visit will be different but... More

Our children really enjoyed the animal sightings in the park and loved the swimming!! The tour included fruit and water as well as another guide going ahead to reserve the table. We also... More

Our stay at Hotel Parador was good for the most part. It's a beautiful hotel with wonderful grounds! We hiked the Monkey Trail which was exhausting but nice although we saw no animals. The pools were beautiful and well taken care of. The gym was excellent, and the putt putt/tennis courts were fun! Our room was decent and clean, with... More

I stayed here for four nights. Wonderful place. Very attentive staff, great rooms and an amazing view. Place has about everything you could want in a resort: great restaurant, wonderful pool and bar, mini-golf for kids, a walking path/forest with howler monkey's, sloths, etc. I went during the "off-season" which is probably when it is nicest IMO. Place wasn't very... More
