We are here at the Hotel Parador and as I shared with several of the employees, since there are so many places to visit in the world, we typically don’t repeat a destination. Costa Rica is the exception. We were last here 9 years ago, not at this hotel, however.

We are so glad we chose to stay here. Upon arrival we were greeted with a friendly smile. Yes, masks are required indoors. Our luggage was disinfected. At check-in we received a cool/damp towel and fresh juice.

Our room on the 4th floor, we couldn’t have asked for a better view; combo water and lush flora.
We have seen many scarlet macaws perched on the tree outside our balcony and “Bernie” (we named him) the sloth has been hanging out since we got here.

The food is excellent. Unfortunately due to restrictions, some things were limited,however, nothing that would affect our time here.

We sincerely hope that many more people will book their travel to Costa Rica, and add Hotel Parador to your plans. Not only will you have an amazing experience, you will be helping their tourism.

We hope that soon the Costa Rican people will soon feel Pura Vida again. We sure have, so gracias once again for a truly unforgettable experience.

4/5 as there is always room for improvement.

Room tip: Don’t hesitate booking

The customer service is Extraordinary! We were at another hotel and decided that we wanted to upgrade ourselves while on vacation. This hotel has far exceeded our expectations. Marciel at the front desk has continuously shown amazing hospitality. When the weather did not permit our boat trip she made sure to have us rebooked for the next day. She had shown a genuine concern that you just don't always get to experience. All of the employees have been wonderful.

Room tip: We have a garden room and it is delightful.

We felt we found a slice of paradise during our stay at the Parador. The views of the beach and ocean were spectacular, the entire staff was professional, the rooms were immaculate and the food was absolutely delicious. The wildlife on the grounds was amazing - sloths, three different kinds of monkeys, iguanas, scarlet macaws, and dozens of other birds. You will love it.

My husband and I and my son, his wife and their 2 year old stayed at the Parador in early June of 2021. The resort was not at 100% capacity yet because of COVID restrictions, maybe about 30-40%.
We loved our stay here, the staff was so nice and responsive. One of the guys at the swimming pool reservation area went out of his way to show me a sloth that was in a tree because he saw that I was looking for wildlife. The dining room staff were always pleasant. Lots of smiles from all the staff.
We loved all the wildlife that was there on the property. We hiked on their monkey trail one morning and saw the squirrel monkeys and the howlers. The white faced capuchins were all over the property, many times playing on the roofs and along the paths. There were iguanas and plenty of beautiful sounding birds. We got a great picture of a pair of macaws from our balcony.
I would strongly suggest staying here. They had everything on the property that you could want, restaurant, bar, store, kids play area, spa, and gym. My husband and I got massages and they were great.
It is not a long drive at all to town and to Manuel Antonio Park ( which I strongly suggest visiting) The road is narrow and curvy, but safe.
The front desk upgraded us to suites, since we had reserved two other rooms. They thought it would be nicer for us to be in the same building. They did not charge for this upgrade. The suites were fantastic.
We enjoyed the family pool on any occasions.
Wonderful vacation, wonderful property. Thanks to all the staff who work so hard!

Dear hummeb,

Thank you for voting us as “the best vacation resort ever”! We do not take such great compliments lightly. The wildlife never ceases to amaze, did you have a chance to experience the night tour as well? Another set of residents come to life when the sun goes down. We’re very happy that you enjoyed yourself and found everything to your liking. We hope that you decide to visit Costa Rica and the Manuel Antonio area again sometime. If so, look us up. We’ll be here waiting for you.

We drove down to Quepos from Tamarindo and stayed at Parador Resort and Spa. The resort is a great value for the price. The staff was friendly and helpful. We took a nature tour on the property with Elias and had a great time. We saw both three-toed and a two-toed sloths. The highlight was seeing and photographing three species of frogs and just missing a fourth.

We also got a wonderful couples massage.

The included breakfast was excellent. Lots of fruit and an omelet station. Lunch and dinner were also very good. I had baked Red Snapper one night. My wife loved the chicken quesadilla.

The wildlife on the property is incredible. I saw Mantled Howler, Red Backed Squirrel and White-throated capuchin monkeys on a morning walk on the Monkey Trail.

The pools were nice and we used the adult pool which smaller and quieter.

They have excellent COVID protocols for safety.

We plan to come back in January or February.

Room tip: The road to the property is curved and narrow. Watch out for oncoming traffic.
