When we arrived at Hotel Parador we did not have a room booked yet and we were not sure if we wanted to stay in a standard room or suite. The staff was nice enough to show us both options and after seeing the amazing suite it was hard for us to pass up staying in that beautiful part of...

First I have to start with the people-- they are wonderful and provided such amazing customer service. Eric served us many meals and was so funny and interested in us.

El Parador is Manuel Antonio’s only resort-type of a hotel! Bold statement, but it has a nice-sized main pool, two adult-only pools, spa, tennis court, mini-golf course, on-site nature trail, two restaurants, pool bar and three private dining rooms. It sits on a hilltop, with the first row seats to the Pacific Ocean. What a view! We were lucky enough...

What an amazing and helpful staff. They lifted it from a 3 star to a 4! Why would I have done 3 star? Well, the rooms were ok, but climb stairs to get to an elevator to get to more stairs kind of kills relaxation for me. When we got there the place smelled of wet piant badly. The 'short...

A real dud. The view is incredible. But the view from the customer's point-of-view is from steerage. If you stay at this hotel (like we did, as we were placed here by our Costa Rica based travel agent company) you are most likely to be placed in the cheap seats. I couldn't help but laugh as i viewed all the...

Our three day stay was a wonderful way to end or trip to Costa rica. The hotel is simply beautiful with a fantastic breakfast and an ocean view. Of course our favorite event was seeing the monkeys on the hotel grounds, by the adult pool. Parador is not just an upscale resort. It is decorated with statues and art that...
