Fantastic place and people

The perfect place to stay awesome people working there and a great retreat at the end of the day after a full days fishing. Staff went out of there way to help and organize trips and guides for you. The wild life at the resort was amazing and better than you could find in the National park down the road. Every thing from toucan's to sloth

Stunning views and grounds. Not a 5 star hotel

We arrived late at night, during driving rain, on a narrow winding road. Power started cutting off after we checked in. The Medieval theme, somewhat dated room and an insect in the bath tub didn't help much. It was sort of a Haunted Mansion experience. The following morning wiped all this out. Stunning ocean views, gorgeous grounds, extremely helpful stuff, nice pools. We did explore the Monkey trail and enjoyed it. The food at the main restaurant was great. I wish we had spent more time at the resort. We tried to explore nearby Manuel Antonio and weren't impressed. The beach down the street from the resort is not worth your time. The public beach before the entrance to the Manuel Antonio park is mediocre at best. It was more of an overpriced misery with tin shacks lining up the shore and peddlers running the entire beach. We had a great time at the resort, though. However, I wouldn't rate it as a 5 star hotel. It was little things like not being able to borrow an umbrella, the front desk not being able to provide me with a band aid, or having to trade towels for cards, that leave room for improvement.

Who needs the National Park? We saw as much wildlife on the grounds of our resort.

The Parador Resort and Spa was a fabulous place to stay. Convenient to the National Park, and to the village of Quepos, with great service, a first rate restaurant, and great excursions and guides to the nearby beaches, bicycling and hiking. But the best part by far was the abundant wildlife on the grounds of the resort. We saw three different species of monkeys (squirrel, howler and white faced), two specious of sloths, large igunas, dolphins offshore and the most spectacular scarlet macaw. Missed the toucans but they were there as well. The rooms were very clean, well serviced and pretty. The weather is fabulous. A very special spot in a very special country.

A truly amazing stay

This hotel has raised the bar for all the hotels I have visited after. There was nothing to not love about this hotel. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel in the suite building and our views were amazing. The room itself was also just about perfect. It was quite large, had beautiful furnishings and a patio with amazing views, great chairs and a hot tub. On rainy afternoons we would enjoy hot tubbing on our patio and watching the rain and the ocean. The grounds of the hotel were gorgeous, there are three pools, a private nature walk, and a small put put golf course. The staff was always friendly and very accommodating. They would do anything to ensure a great stay. The hotel has laundry facilities that are heavily used. When I was unable to get some laundry done I needed for a hike the next day, they picked it up from me and cleaned in very quickly so I could make my 6:30 am hike time. They did not have to do it and they did it anyway. The price was reasonable and they delivered it to my room about 2 hours after they picked it up. The included breakfast every morning was delicious with excellent service. I can hardly wait to return this place. It was just about perfect!
