Parador Resort and Spa
- What's Included
Our family of 4 stayed in one of the Superior rooms perched atop a hill at the resort. Stunning view of the trees with a group of monkeys greeting us on our first day. Listening to the howler monkeys early in the morning was also a treat. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Only complaint is a slight damp musty smell in the room from the humidity, that the air conditioning couldn't even get rid of. A suggestion is maybe to have an air freshner in the room. The food at the dining room restaurant was delicious and the 3 pools were great for relaxing. What a beautiful country, be sure to take a guided tour through Manuel Antonio National park, it will be a highlight of your trip. And don't forget your swim suit as swimming in the rolling waves at the park is amazing! There is a new set of suites at the resort that are much more expensive, but don't have the musty smell and have an amazing panoramic view of the ocean and rainforest. I still give the resort 5 stars for overall experience!
At first the shower in our room didn't work properly, so they offered us to move 5 doors further. And how happy we are! No, not a room with a jacuzzi, a room with the best view ever! A mother sloth with a little furry baby and some howler monkeys passing our balcony. You do not have to zoom in on your camera to see them! Wow!They also have their own trail, the monkey trail. Take that one! We saw howler monkeys and titi monkeys very close by!!!!And all of the staff is so friendly and helpfull. And I can feel they are sincere. Maybe because of it is low season, but still....The rooms (we have a normal garden view room) is nice and clean. We also booked an excursion to the national park of Manuel Antonio in the hotel. Elias was our guide. He showed us so many beautyfull animals and had a great knowledge of nature and spotted a lot of animals. Also the 3 monkeys: titi monkey, howler monkey and kapucine monkey. They also brought some towels for us, a bottle of water and some fresh fruit when we arrived at the beach. When we were swimming the kapucine monkeys were at our picknick place. He came to search for us so we didn't miss them. So nice for him to do that.The food at the restaurant is so yummie! We are leaving tomorrow, but we don't want to! What a wonderfull place!!!! Thanks for taking such good care of us.
We had the trip of a lifetime when we visited Costa Rica in September. We finished our two week trip with 6 nights at the Parador Resort and had a fantastic stay. We arrived at the reception and there was some building work going on but it did not affect any aspect of our stay here. Everything was far away from the building site so it didn't impact anything and you couldn't hear any noise. Our room was gorgeous with a view over the trees and tennis court below. The beds were very comfortable and the maid service was always very attentive and thorough. The food at the restaurant was a little pricey, but to be expected from such a nice hotel. The staff were all so polite and helpful, particularly one of the staff on the tour desk who would always offer great advice and point out any wildlife on site. We spent our 6 days tracking down the resident sloth, Flash who would nestle himself at the top of the trees near the pool area. We used the spa facility which was also very good and had a great selection of offers available. Overall, we couldn't ask for a better hotel or stay to finish our trip in Costa Rica. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the parador to any of our friends and family! Thank you for an amazing visit.
Went with my eldest daughter to relax and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Hotel is on a hill nestled in amongst the rainforest. Pools are lovely, gardens and surroundings very relaxing with lots of wildlife to see. Hotel staff are lovely and very helpful. Rooms were very nicely furnished - we were in an ocean suite with panoramic views over the sea - very nice! I did read on here that people were less happy about the cost of food and it was hard to get into Quepos for dinner. For us that was the price of being in a lovely place amongst nature and the food was very good at the hotel with plenty of variety so we didn't feel like we needed to go out to eat at night. Portion sizes good so rarely had more than a main course to be honest. Will definitely be back with the rest of the family.
Great staff, fantastic facilities and nice combination of nature and architecture. The suites are huge and have access to a private only adult swim pool. Our suite had a great view of the bay and the Jacuzzi is placed just in front of this view. Might seem a bit pricey but the hotel staff, the view and the facilities are worth.
