El Parador is in a beautiful, if inaccessible location and has all the facilities you might expect. Good pool. OK beach which is a bit of a hike. It was, however, the least appealing of the places we stayed in during our stay in Costa Rica. It may be because we had really enjoyed the lodges/ecolodges and this hotel models itself on more European lines. We found the food pretentious. Over-elaborate sauces - style over content. We both got mild food poisoning and couldn't take the tour we'd booked.
Staff were OK - but lacked the warmth and friendliness we'd found everywhere else. Much more formal.
Maybe it just wasn't for us.
