Perched high above the sweeping Central Pacific coastline on twelve acres of tropical rainforest once inhabited by the Quepoa Indians, Hotel Parador is a secluded luxury beach hotel adjacent to the stunning sheltered cove of Playa Biezanz and just minutes from Manuel Antonio National Park, the neighboring fishing village of Quepos, and the local airport.

A multiple World Travel Awards recipient, Hotel Parador is distinguished by its commitment to sustainability, world-class amenities, European-inspired ambience and Costa Rican "Pura Vida" hospitality in an unparalleled natural setting teeming with wildlife.
From our majestically situated property you might witness the awesome spectacle of migrating whales while just a bit further the unspoiled beach of Matapalo plays host to another of nature's miracles: the annual nesting of turtles, which usually occurs between July and December.

Evoking the old world charm of a traditional Spanish "parador," Hotel Parador offers the outstanding facilities and personal service expected by our discerning and deserving guests, including world-class restaurants, three pools, wi-fi, spa, small fitness center, on-site activities, and experienced concierge to assist with tours, reservations and any other holiday need.

Our selection of garden, jungle or ocean-view rooms and lavish suites dot the sprawling grounds, affording both family-friendly and couples-only romantic options. Scenic jungle trails shared by frolicking titi, whiteface and howler monkeys, lazing sloths and slithering giant iguanas lead to jagged panoramic cliffs and many hidden enclaves and intimate niches allowing for further privacy.
You need never leave the property, but if you so choose, the hotel's regular shuttles will have you back in "civilization" in no time.
Close enough to the Manuel Antonio's renowned beaches, adventure activities and local flavor of Quepos, yet isolated from the bustle of the main drag, Hotel Parador in Costa Rica provides the perfect antidote to life's chaos with every imaginable amenity defining a first-class resort.So whether you're planning a honeymoon, romantic getaway, active family holiday - or are seeking an enchanting site for your wedding - Parador Resort & Spa offers infinite possibilities to fulfill your fantasy.

Nice stay

Unique hotel with beautiful views! The access road was under construction the entire time during our stay which made it very difficult to go in and out of the hotel. Besides that, the staff if very nice, rooms are great, and I would recommend.

"Amazing Beautiful Resort"

The Parador was paradise! It is truly a hidden gem in Quepos. It was our first trip to Costa Rica and we had no clue what part of the country to visit, where to go or where to stay. I did all my research from other travelers reviews...THANK YOU!!! I don't know where to begin...the staff... amazing...the views...breath taking...the suites...unbelievable...the food...delicious...the wild life...incredible. I would recommend this resort to everyone!!

Should be a 5 Star Rating!!!

This place was amazing. Very friendly staff could not wait to please your every need. The dinning was excellent. A different dinning experience every night. One night fish buffet with all you can eat lobster. The breakfast buffet was the best . Great service! The accomodattions were first class even the garden suite. The infinity pool had great ocean views, and waiters were fantastic. We were there 5 nights and loved every minute. I will go back again, and again loved it.

Beautiful!

This hotel is BEAUTIFUL and the staff is very friendly. We were here for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect. There are many activities to do, both at the hotel and in the surrounding areas. The front desk was very helpful. Snorkeling was great if you take a short walk to the beach from the hotel. We also highly recommend taking the shuttle to the Manuel Antonio Park. It has beautiful beaches, some very secluded if you walk far enough, and some great wildlife. The fishing and the zip-lining was great too.

Ask for the upgraded suite when you get there. If you ask for a deal and it's not booked out they just might give it to you!

Parador, a fantastic place to visit.

No word in English language can describe the Parador. We have never been to a better resort/hotel. The ONLY way to know is to experience it. Parador is the place to visit and thatn to comeback time after time.

Hotel Parador!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The dining room was particularly attentive to my request for Soy milk. They had it ready for me each morning, except the last day, when the service was almost non-existent.
