We had clothing dissappear four different days from our room and management would not reply to our concerns. When we returned home we realized our car keys were removed from my purse. Upper management never acknowledged our complaint. If none of that would have happened, I would have recommended the hotel as long as you stay on the newer tower. It was lovely and clean.

We stayed at Nayara in Arenal for our honeymoon, which was spectacular, and then traveled to Hotel Parador in Manual Antonio and were quickly disappointed. We checked into a premium room to find that it was severly outdated, covered with ants, although it did have a spectacular view. We then had lunch in the restaurant which was really really bad. We were staying for 4 day so I called my tour company, Costa Rican Tours, who called the manager for me to see what he could do.
The general manager turned our honeymoon around by moving us to a suite, which was a 5 star suite compared to the 1 star outdated room we were initially put in. He also gave us a private dinner in their wine cellar.
We had a fabulous time and would recommend going to this hotel, but only if you get a suite, it is worth every penny. The rooms are very spacious, with a jacuzzi both inside and out, a bar, a great view of the pacific. The suites also have a private pool, jacuzzi and bar, which is only for guests in the suites.
This place is a hidden gem, but make sure you get a suite!! The food was really good for dinner but just average or below average for lunch..fyi.

Just returned from a week here over Labor Day 2010. One of my favorite stays ever. You can't go wrong here. The road is fixed now! No problems getting to it. Service was amazing. Chef and staff accomodated personal requests. Loved the fanishing edge pools! I felt so at home there. Don't hesitate to experience this hotel. It is well worth it to spend the extra money per night to get the Premium Plus room. The Spa was first class - one of the best I have ever experienced.

The hotel was beautiful, the grounds were extensive and the people there were so service oriented we were amazed at the treatment we received! From the tour desk to the front desk to the waiter to the bellhop, everyone was wonderful! Everyone in Costa Rica is all about going the extra mile, and the hotel accommodated us in every way. The view from the breakfast restaurant was amazing! What a way to start the day!
