Spent 3 nights with family including a 9 and 7 year old. The grounds and the tours made this a great experience. The pool was well designed and kept our kids entertained. May want to pack a small pool toy if your kids are our age are younger. It does have a beach entry. The Monkey trails provided plenty of...

We spent three nights in this lovely hotel and did not want to leave. The view was superb, the staff was very kind and helpful, the property is gorgeous with a Mediterranean feel and it is beautifully maintained. We found more native animals on the property than in the national park. The pool is blissful, and the food was delicious....

Delightful hotel, beautifully located with great views towards the Pacific. We had a standard room for the four of us, which was centrally located and well maintained. The hotel's monkey trail (a 35 minute walk on the hotel ground) was excellent, great views and we saw two sloths). We saw lots of howlermonkeys on the grounds as well (from the...

This hotel is one of the few in the area that has its own grounds that run from the top of the hill with a view all the way down to the the sea through a forest. Staff are outstanding and well-trained. The accommodation (and three pools at least) and other building are distributed around a series of well-maintained paths,...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Parador for 4 nights on April 2017. We hadn't had a vacations in a while and so we opted for a luxury hotel to give ourselves a treat after so long. Unfortunately I can't say Parador met our expectations for a luxury hotel. I think we didn't get what we paid for. The...

We ended our 15 night vacation with 5 days at the Parador. Our check in experience was quite "coid". A bit like they were doing us a favour having us. Please bare in mind we booked two top rooms. For the most the staff were very hardworking and pleasant. Particular the Bar Staff and Waiters/Waitresses. As I said check-in was...

We had a beautiful sea view room which was spacious and had everything we needed in it. It was on the top floor of the hotel and had to be reached by a little funicular railway which ran up outside the building and held about three people at a time, the views from it were wonderful. It was something a...

Friends have stayed here and highly recommended the hotel (albeit 10 years ago) so we were really looking forward to staying here. Fortunately we were able to check into the room early. This was a garden view room and we were able to watch monkeys and macaws, unfortunately we didn't notice the room had an access door to the next...

This is a beautiful resort hotel, which we don't tend to stay at, but got a great deal, so did! The people are very nice (oh, the ladies for turn-down...so sweet!) and attentive. The grounds were beautiful, good things to do, shuttle to Manuel Antonio beach, and enough to keep you in the area. It still was the people that...
