This resort is absolutely amazing. We were greeted upon arrival by a staff member who handed each of us a cold towel, then upon entering the lobby (after our bags were taken to be delivered to our room), we were served cold drinks. The pools were great, with one even offering an in-pool bar, and with a great view of...

We stayed one night at a hotel up the street (which was horrible) and quickly checked into Hotel Parador. From the moment that we arrived the staff at Parador did everything possible to make us feel special on our honeymoon. They even called us twice after arriving to ensure that the room was to our liking. The pool and the...

i'll keep it short - if you can afford this hotel, it is worth EVERY PENNY; the staff, the views, the pools...all superb. If i were to be overtly critical, i could say that the food is slightly above average but not excellent and in our room, you could hear someone walking (with high heels) outside in the hallway.

I would just like to say I wasn’t sure what to expect since we had not been to Costa Rica before, but the staff here was absolutely the best of ANY resort/Hotel I have ever stayed at. There was not one person we came across that was not very courteous and helpful. The whole resort was kept so clean and...

We stayed in this hotel for four nights. Couple and two children (13.5, 10). Our room, number 318, was close to the main building, right next to the magnificent pool, bar and restaurant where breakfast is served. Our room had two beds, a bathroom and toilet (together) and balcony overlooking the garden and the sea (side view). Great hotel staff,...

Had a great trip here May 25-27, 2014. Perfect location minutes from Manuel Antonio park. Hotel had a great free breakfast and we were able to set up a worthwhile tour for the park. The pictures you can get from a guide's spotting scope ( with an iPhone or regular camera) is worth the cost of the guide in itself....
