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.

Incredible 30th Birthday

We had an incredible stay at Parador. Myself and 2 friends spent 6 nights here. The staff was very friendly and helpful! All the facilities were clean and convenient. The breakfast buffet was amazing with all the fresh fruit and plenty of options. I would stay here again!

Hotel Parador

It was an amazing experience. Great view from our room and great service from the staff. The pool was wonderful and the food was good too. We played mini-golf as well and always had a shuttle service to any activity.

Great

The hotel is wonderful, the staff is really really friendly. The tour specialist was very helpful. The view is amazing, the grounds is very well kept. The only thing missing for me was there was no entertainment. The stay was wonderful, but very quiet for me.

Hotel Parador - Surrounded by Nature

While, at the Resort I was struck by the beauty of the resort grounds. The resort is located on the edge of the Rain Forrest and you are Surrounded by Beauty from every angle. I had a wonderful time, my only compliant was the road leading to the resort. It was horrible...unpaved dirt road with large rocks and pot holes. I would advise anyone renting a car, to rent an SUV, believe me you will need it. Costa Rica is a BEAUTIFUL Country.
