4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Gorgeous pool, and wonderful location. Top notch.

Super nice staff. Beautiful hotel with lots of monkeys/sloth/birds/flowers. Not close to town.

Great stay! 5 stars! The hotel was in the center of the nature so it was possible to see the wildlife right outside of your room! Hotel was in such a great location that the main public beach, shops, and even the private beach were within walking distance, but recommended you take the hotel shuttle. Hotel shuttle driver Johnny was absolutely amazing! Johnny really made the adventure exciting and highly recommend him if you book this stay. Hotel staff were also great and very accommodating. Highly recommend checking out JetSkiBoys who are located right at the private beach for an amazing jetski adventure. Overall 5 out of 5 hotel. Will be back soon!

This property is very close to the Hidden Beach which is small, less crowded and good.

Beautiful views. Very clean. Felt safe. We saw many monkeys from our room patio. Breakfast was amazing.

The view and the pool are awesome. Staff are very welcoming but not everyone. I had one waiter very unpleasant... very bad for a hotel like the Parador. The bathroom was a little bit old and need to be refreshing.

magnificent hotel with large territory, wildlife, park settings everything is perfect. We stayed in the large studio on 4th floor with exceptional views. Other rooms may be older in other buildings.

I enjoyed our short stay at Hotel Parador. We tried three hotels in the area, and this was the largest, and with the most families. We are a couple without kids, but noticed many great activities and areas for children. It is a really large hotel, so if you're looking for a more intimate experience, I wouldn't call it that, but having said that, they have 2 restaurants, a few bars, and lots of options, like laundry, 3 pools, and transportation to beaches. They even have a trip center to book tours and experiences from. Our room was very clean and nice, and it felt like a solid 4 star, good hotel.

Spent 5 days and not one complaint. Simply magical.

The rooms and grounds were spotlessly clean, the staff was friendly and professional, the pools were beautiful as were all of the sculptures and art and there were monkeys, sloths, toucans, macaws, coati...and more!! The flowers were abundant and the ocean view was breathtaking. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this wonderful hotel!

My husband and I spent one night at Hotel Parador and were amazed at the beautiful grounds and friendly, helpful staff. We stayed in the suites which were spacious, well stocked and offered beautiful views from the balcony of the ocean and luscious plant life below. We even watched a sloth for a long time that was just hanging out in one of the trees by the monkey trail. We would highly recommend this hotel to couples and families and will definitely return again.

We stayed here 4 nights and loved it so much we thought we could stay a week. The grounds, the view, the pools, the staff, the wildlife on site, all 5*. We had young kids and they have enough entertainment for there. We saw more wildlife including sloths, monkeys, macaws here than at the national park, and that too upclose. The view from the pool area is breathtaking. The food at the restaurant is good and the happy hour has really reasonable drinks and fresh juices. Breakfast is awesome. Definitely stay here.

Beautiful view and great location. There are so many neat architectural features. The food was great. We visited with our kids and they enjoyed the pool, the monkey trail walk and the mini-golf. The staff helped us with a zip-line and Manuel Antoinio tour, both of which were great. We do hope to visit again!

The staff were very friendly. We had a great time.

We had two rooms for our family. The resort was beautiful. Very well run, service was great.

As an avid photographer and animal lover, this hotel is paradise. Every day gorgeous scarlet macaws would visit the almond trees on the hotel grounds. We saw several of our favorite Costa Rican animals, sloths (perezosos), including a mother carrying her newborn baby. It was an incredible experience to be swimming in the pool with a sloth in one tree, and scarlet macaws in the other. Unforgettable. We also saw several hummingbirds, toucans, a mot-mot, agoutis, parakeets, many other beautiful birds, and of course the ever-present iguanas and their famous leader, Pedro! Quite simply, the grounds of the hotel are unsurpassed in their beauty. The views of the Pacific Ocean, which you have pretty much anywhere at the hotel, are simply stunning. The pools are the nicest of any we have ever seen in our lives. The hotel itself is beautiful, inviting, and warm. The grounds are nicely maintained, and the flowers are beautiful. The monkey trail has to be seen to be believed—like something out of a dream. There is natural beauty all around you at The Parador, and it truly is a paradise on Earth. Staying at The Parador is an unforgettable experience. The jaw-dropping natural beauty, the incredible wildlife, the supremely wonderful and friendly staff, the sweeping views of the ocean, the amazing pools, and the location make The Parador a must for any visit to Costa Rica. The Parador is the reason we fell in love with Costa Rica, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Huge property, good loacation, helpful and friendly staff. Would recommend elevators for luggage for rooms further up. Got to wake up to sounds of monkeys, saw some Tucans and loads of lizards. Would def come back again!

We had a great time at the pools and the monkey trail!
