We stayed here for four nights. The hotel is nice, good views, good swimming pools and nice spacious rooms. Good place to relax and location is good. However the food is overpriced and not great. The lunch menu has a good choice but some were not available to order such as pizza and sushi. The wraps were nice. The dinner...

We stayed three nights early on in a lengthy trip to Costa Rica. The position of the Parador is excellent and it has extensive grounds and being so close to the National Park there is not need to take a trip there (many people have said it is very crowded) as all the mammals and birds come to you at...

Soon our stay in costa rica is over and we ve tried a few hotels. Parador was by far the best!! I would definitely recommend this gem! Its close cabride to Manuel antonio nationalpark but its almost not needed to go to since it feels like this place is situated in one with all the wild animals: liguanas, monkeys and...

From the moment I arrived Friday night, until I departed the following Friday morning, I was made to feel welcome and well served by Parador staff. At first glance, I was dazzled by the gorgeous wood and tile work in the lobby, then quickly greeting with a cool, refreshing towel and a delicious glass of Pineapple juice! Deybin showed me...

We had a lot of things go wrong. I don't want to get into lengthy detail about it, but what really was the last straw in the camel's back was the fact that we wrote to the person in charge of hospitality and she NEVER responded! The location and animals at the resort are amazing. Service is horrible. Restaurant food...

This was our final stop on our Costa Rican Adventure booked through Imagine Latin America. It was the perfect spot for our final few days. The Hotel has a lovely colonial design with beautiful views out to the ocean and the staff are friendly. There are several resident sloths, iguanas, white faced monkeys and squirrel monkeys. We also saw toucans,...

This is a good place to end the tour of Costa Rica. It has a lovely setting with lots of wildlife. We took the courtesy bus to the national park which was reliable. A tip for the national park is to go alone without a guide. The guides all seem to follow the same path and so you can stop...

Beautiful hotel, amazing views. Best part was having the white faced monkeys jumping in the balcony every morning, along with toucans and raccoons visiting daily. Food is excellent nice improvement. BUT... extremely hard mattress and lumpy pillows. Horrible sleep. Service is slow and maintenance is lacking. Overall, huge potential, but many details that need to be worked out to make...
