Reviewed yesterday NEW

The route up to Hotel Parador is via a narrow, hilly road and the entrance to the hotel seems a little "cramped", so first impressions may not be great, but the hotel opens up behind the lobby area and you realise that Parador is nicely spaced, with beautiful grounds, paved (hilly) paths and open spaces. Our "experience": We paid extra...

This hotel sees itself as a 5-star. Let's be clear - it's not. The only 5-star are the prices here. Don't stay for dinner. Go anywhere around Manuel Antonio. Better food & prices. We had dinner one night and had to wait more than one hour for a mediocre and expensive dinner. The pool area was OK, but a little...

We were here for three nights at the end of a fortnight in Costa Rica. We had a very comfortable and spotlessly clean room. Its balcony overlooked trees full of tropical birds and a view out to a small bay and Quepos beyond. There was a bit of a climb up the outside stairs to get there (could have used...

Almost everything about this hotel was great. Nice room (we took a standard room), comfortable beds, really good food, and great grounds (we saw more in their grounds than we did in the National Park). Definitely worth a visit.

The room and views were incredible (we were on the top floor with multi-sided balcony). The pools were good and the happy hours! Downside is this hotel is on a cliff, expect alot of climbing. A couple of things went wrong at the hotel. The exterior elevator stopped working, with us in it. Unfortunately the phone the elevator did not...

I stayed at the Parador for five nights at the end of February. The garden plus room was spacious and clean with a large bathroom and balcony. The grounds, pools and restaurants were also well kept and although the resort is quite large, it was easy to get around. The breakfast buffet (included) was excellent with a variety of American...

We really enjoyed our stay, beautiful view, big rooms and a delicious breakfast. Great parking for our hire car, which you do need to get to bars/restaurants. To steep and long for our children to walk. Would defiantly return.

Good location with superb views, good facilities, and generally good service. Shuttle service to the park etc is excellent. Restaurants good quality (and not overpriced by CR standards). Service generally high standard, but can seem stressed at busy times. Rooms variable - some with excellent views.

The complete incompetence in their restaurant and welcoming a large group was surprising. I am not a petty person but this was beyond any norm. We went to check in and it took a LONG time to do so (and there was no line). But the restaurant...we had a group meal that took nearly 3 hours. Salads took 45 minutes....
