Overall, the experience was great. Beautiful setting, very quiet, wildlife everywhere, and lots of amenities. Tennis court, it's very own wildlife hiking trail, easy access to the beach, kids room & game room, and a pool bar. All very nice. I typically stay at smaller resorts when I travel, but this was an exception. It is a large resort. So it gets busy for breakfast and at pool time. A couple of times, I went to the pool area at 9-10 in the morning, and people had already places towels to reserve all of the lounge chairs around the pool with maybe only 20% of the chairs actually having people. And the pool was crowded. Other than that, this was a great place to stay.

Room tip: We had a garden room which was fine since we were rarely there during the day on tours or at the beach.

Had a nice few days with my wife and kids at the Hotel Parador during June 2017. Kid friendly resort with nice pool and dining area, good restaurant. Easy to get transport into Quepos or down to the beach at Manuel Antonio. Room was a little plainer than I was expecting, but nice view of bay. Staff very friendly.

We saw as many wildlife as we did in the park. We enjoyed a canopy/ocean view which was the best part of our trip to Costa Rica. Being on top of the canopy allowed us to see many different types of wildlife which was why we came to Costa Rica.

We were there to celebrate our anniversary and they kindly upgraded our room ay no charge. Our first night didn't go so well. We like to have the fan from the a.c. on high to help block out noise. The a.c. went out a couple times and we heard loud banging. I'm assuming they were trying to fix it. Then, at 5am, the howler monkeys started screaming only 20 feet from our room. They are so loud! It was cool though to see them so close. The next night was better, no issues with the a.c. we had toucans right on our balcony and got some super photos! The pool is beautiful, there's a small mini-golf area, food is good.

My family and I stayed at Parador Hotel for 3 nights in June, 2017. I can't say enough good things about the service at this hotel. Without even requesting it, we got an upgrade on the room, and when we walked in, the room was full of ballons and a happy birthday card for my son. I thought this was very thoughtful since my son's birthday had passed and I never said anything to the hotel, so it was a pleasant surprise. In the monkey trail we never saw any monkeys, but they came right to the pool area and we got lots of pictures and video. The infinity pool was great and refreshing and the included breakfast very delicious with lots of choices. The service was always excellent. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the Manuel Antonio area.
