We stayed at Hotel Parador in early January 2013. What an outstanding property--stunning views, great food and superior service. I don't understand some of the less than positive earlier reviews. We thought the menu was reasonable and most of the selections were quite good. The wait staff in the restaurants were outstanding-thank you Eric! Breakfasts are fabulous. The hotel has its own little nature preserve on its grounds which is perfect for a short hike to look for the illusive sloth and the entertaining monkeys--we saw both. Loved hearing the howler monkeys from our room. The best part of this little gem is the staff. May Miranda in the tour office was so helpful in making arrangements for zip line tours, naturalist guides and other arrangements. Natalia Hernandez did a fabulous job arranging transportation for us to and from San Jose. Elias, the naturalist guide is so knowledgeable and found animals hiding in spots we never would have seen.I would recommend renting a car because it is a long walk into town. We are discriminating travelers and this hotel is perfect in every respect.
