My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Parador for our anniversary. We had a Livingsocial deal which really got us our full value. When we arrived they were expecting us with a cool towel and a fresh fruit drink. We were showed to our room in a golf cart where we got a brief tour of the grounds.
The staff was amazing - constantly going out of their way for you, always greeting you as you walked by, and very friendly. At breakfast we were served by Eric most days who was amazing. He always was talking to us, giving us suggestions on food, ensuring we got the full Costa Rica experience. In the time that you are there you really form a bond with the staff. This bond is to the point where they know your room number when they see you for breakfast each morning and Marjorie asked me where my boyfriend was when he wasn't behind me for fresh eggs or omelets. The breakfast was also amazing with fresh fruit, fresh eggs, and a variety which usually changed some each day so you did not have the same thing everyday.
We also booked our trips through the Parador where I feel that we got our full value. The provided transportation and guides for the night tour and the Manuel Antonio walking tour. Even on these tours the guides were exceptional. They were so knowledgeable and provided us more information than I had expected. These guides also knew where to find the animals and what calls to make to attract the animals’ attention.
The Parador surpassed my expectations of cleanliness. Every detail was paid attention to - even my hair brush was cleaned out. This was amazing to me - they actually cleaned my comb and brush to the point where it looked like new. That was my favorite thing about the Parador; they paid attention to the details. The staff was aware it was our anniversary and had a special something planned for us which really made us feel appreciated.
I could continue to say positive things about our stay – but try it for yourself!! I know we would definitely return to Hotel Parador on our next visit!
