Our Costa Rican friends recommended us this hotel, and we are glad we listened to their advice! We loved our stay at Parador. Everything was great. Our room was clean, spacious and had a great sea view. Hotel staff was very responsive and helpful. Breakfast – the best from what we saw during our trip and we enjoyed good food...

This resort is absolutely gorgeous. The pools are beautiful, the rooms are clean. The view while eating breakfast is beautiful. It was awesome to see sloths and monkeys while eating. Breakfast and dinner were fantastic. The quality of the lunch menu was so-so but other than that- this place was truly paradise.

Considerably more luxurious than the usual hotels we'd consider but admirably eco-sensitive. All the facilities you could want (and more) plus iguanas companionably walking alongside you. Service extremely friendly and efficient. An extensive menu, perhaps a bit expensive but there would be considerable transport costs. They coped with my husband's gluten allergy. Near a wonderful National Park with the tropical...

We thought our stay at The Parador was one of our most enjoyable hotel stays ever. Our room, in the newer suite building of the hotel, was incredibly well appointed, and superbly serviced by great, friendly housekeeping staff. The grounds and architecture are spectacular. The food service was not haut cuisine, but was beautifully served in a delightful indoor-outdoor restaurant...

I cannot say enough about this special place. The location in the National Park is complemented by the proximity of a small and pleasant beach. While the location and beautiful view are exceptional, the staff is most exceptional. The center of this hotel is its concierge operation.
