Central Hotels in Quepos Costa Rica

Hey All

I am heading to Quepos Costa Rica in April. My tour operator recommended the El Parador hotel but I am concerned that it is too far away from the action. I am looking for an upscale hotel that is within walking distance of fun resturants/bars/pub and the beach.

Any recommendations?

Most nice, high end hotels are far from...bars/pubs/restaurants...SORRY!

Maybe Hotel SI COMO NO...can be the answer...


Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

For good hotels Si Como No and Gaia are the only ones walking distance to some restaurants and bars. You can find others more medium scale. NATUREGUIDE

In my opinion -- unless you have a car -- most of the hotels down the road that Parador is on are too far off the main road to be very convenient. Just my opinion.

For nicer places along the main road, in addition to what Natureguide recommends, there's also Buena Vista Villas and Casas a.k.a. Tulemar. I'd say it's definitely upscale -- not out of this world, I guess -- but very nice. The grounds are amazing and there's direct and easy access to a beach.

Parador is nice, but quite large and quite far down a horrid road. They do have shuttle service though, but that can get old. Si Como No is nice and right along the road, as well as it has shuttle and good views. Downside....no TV, but maybe that will not matter to you. Gaia is really nice, but not great views, and I hate having to get in a golf cart everytime I want to go somewhere. Good tapas for sunset tho. I would lean towards Buena Vista Villas. Centrally located, nice beach, good units if you get the right ones, with lots of animals. Enjoy!

La Mariposa is within walking distance to some places. It is a bit older, but still pretty nice. El Parador could be one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen, but I personally would never stay there becuase it is way to far out of the way and also quite expensive.
