Nice hotel with plenty of wildlife on premises. No need to go to the Manuel Antonio Park unless you want to pay $25 per person to do a trekking. You will will have a closer look of the sloths, the monkeys and other animals directly at the hotel. Restaurant is good. Room was spacious and clean. The only reason, I did not give a perfect score is that the hotel exterior (walkway slippery and damaged, adult pool concrete rim damaged) and décoration getting old. Other than that, it was a perfect stay and I recommend this hotel.

We stayed here on a quick long weekend vacation from July 23-26, 2021. The grounds were well kept, rooms were clean, and the staff was great! Food and drinks selections were great too! We did a massage and it was affordable and good quality. Our evening server, Yerald, was wonderful and stood out among most of the friendly staff. He worked in the bar on the late night we arrived and was very helpful in getting us situated with food and drinks before they closed. He checked in with us each night he saw and made us feel very welcome. Thank you Yerald for being so kind and friendly.

Parador hotel is just amazing, from it's infrastructure to the decoration to all personnel that are most attentive even to the most minimum details that can be required. The breakfast is very complete with cold cuts, omelettes, breads, cheeses, pancakes, waffles and very nice and tasty local food. Is served buffet style under strict sanitary conditions. Dinner is fabulous with extraordinary service. We stayed at the Tower Suites and our room was extraordinary, very ample and with a fabulous ocean view.

The stay was great. The view , cleanliness and meals were great. Staff were very helpful even when they seen I was getting a little stressed filling out forms . The 3hr ride back to the airport from the hotel was made very comfortable. The drive made stops for us and provided pillows for us to be comfortable. I will travel here again despite the scary roads lol

Dear MELCAI28, Thank you for choosing Parador to host you while you were in the Manuel Antonio area of Costa Rica. It’s true that we are a little isolated perched atop this peninsula at the end of a curvy road. It is because of this that we have such amazing views of the jungle and surrounding Pacific Ocean. We are happy to hear you had a wonderful stay and experience with transfer services. Were the forms protocol related? We have had to add a bit more paperwork to fulfill sanitary requirements, distancing and such, for everyone´s wellbeing. We look forward to hosting you again very soon. Best from the staff at Parador Resort & Spa
