She organized our stay and assured that all will be well. Indeed our wedding was that and more. Upon our arrival, the staff greeted us with warm smiles, efficiency with luggage and...

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Parador for a week including New Year's Eve. While the service was good (it is everywhere that we were in Costa Rica) and the NY Eve party was well done, the rooms and overall hotel are extremely dated and if you are expecting a five star lodging experience, I strongly recommend you...

Parador is set in a lovely location and they have taken advantage of their surroundings. It is beautiful. It is also large and there are a lot of families vacationing there with all that families bring. The adult pool had kids in it (NYE event issue, I believe) and there was no water (and you NEED water in Costa Rica...

We stayed 8nights at the Parador Hotel after having done some travelling in Costa Rica, all our other hotels we stayed in were also 4* and unfortunately Parador did not compare in room quality and comfort.

This was one of the most memorable experiences of any hotel we have been to. We had sloths and toucans out of our balcony which the kids loved. There were monkeys galore and tons of birds.
