Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel looks fantastic in the photos and has a lovely view of the Pacific Ocean. What they don't tell you is that three of "four" restaurants are closed in the off-season, so you are essentially limited to one dining location. As of May 2017, the only open restaurant is an open-air facility located next to a new building under...

We loved the gardens and walks on trails on the property where we enjoyed watching the monkey families cavort. Loved waking up to the sounds of howler monkeys and rail birds. Also saw scarlet macaws, toucans, and sloths on the property. The room was clean and comfortable. Several pools on the property were clean and had great views of the...

The perfect place to stay awesome people working there and a great retreat at the end of the day after a full days fishing. Staff went out of there way to help and organize trips and guides for you. The wild life at the resort was amazing and better than you could find in the National park down the road....

We arrived late at night, during driving rain, on a narrow winding road. Power started cutting off after we checked in. The Medieval theme, somewhat dated room and an insect in the bath tub didn't help much. It was sort of a Haunted Mansion experience. The following morning wiped all this out. Stunning ocean views, gorgeous grounds, extremely helpful stuff,...

The Parador Resort and Spa was a fabulous place to stay. Convenient to the National Park, and to the village of Quepos, with great service, a first rate restaurant, and great excursions and guides to the nearby beaches, bicycling and hiking. But the best part by far was the abundant wildlife on the grounds of the resort. We saw three...

This hotel has raised the bar for all the hotels I have visited after. There was nothing to not love about this hotel.

My room was stunning. Warm wood hues brightened by soft, light green bed spreads and white curtains that framed my patio view of the Pacific Ocean. The grounds and public rooms are stunning. I would go back in a heartbeat. I enjoyed the Special Parador massage at the spa. After 80 minutes I was ready to hike the next mountain...
