Parador Resort and Spa
- What's Included
My husband and I had to discuss this review before I gave it. Honestly if it were a four star hotel I would have given it a 4 star review. But it is a 5 star resort. So I rated it as a 5 star. Positives: clean, great friendly staff (except front desk), nice layout, multiple activity option, spa was nice. Monkeys came and visited everyday. Swim up bar was easy. Negatives: horrible food. Honestly I lost weight here and I'm not a small girl. The pool was like a hot tub. It was Costa Rica's Holy Week/spring break so we couldn't go to the beach. Would we not return.
Girls trip, and I booked in Hotel Parador and WOW!! I've never been soo impressed in any hotel! From when you first arrive, the service, spider monkeys hanging around and amazing views! I can't even find words on how incredible this hotel is! Anyone visiting and wanting royal treatment, this is a MUST!!
We stayed here for three nights as part of a Riviera Travel tour.Our room was huge,beautifully appointed and had a wonderful view of the nearby Pacific.The staff were,in the main, welcoming and helpful.Excellent food.The best feature for us,though,were the grounds,which were full of monkeys,iguanas and countless other animals.Some small niggles; the hotel have a policy of charging a minimum of $100 to your credit card, and tell you to "Sort it out when you get home",and some of the trainee receptionists were unable even to call a taxi.
Our group (20) stayed here and experienced excellent service, accommodationand food selections and quality. The birds are varied and exquisite. The two pools (children/all ages & the adult pool) were very enjoyable.
Resort style hotel so popular with families (if you are not travelling with children I would avoid during school holidays) with large restaurant, bar serving snacks, several pools (but none for serious swimmers), monkey trail, pleasant grounds. Rooms are spacious with plenty of power points, fridge, coffee making, good sized bathroom and shower (no bath) but few towels and toiletries and a small balcony. The beds are seriously comfortable-2 doubles in each room. Free, fast wifi everywhere. Breakfast is buffet style and looks lovely but lacked fish options (e.g. smoked salmon) and the pastries and breads were a bit boring. Pedro is the resident iguana and has his own, named hole/house. It was just too busy/noisy for us.
