What a nice hotel in the middle of the jungle and straight beside the pacific ocean
This hotel is in a beautiful location near the Manuel Antonio National Park.
You have strong wifi in every room and they provide a shuttle into the town, the beach (walking distance) and the beautiful and world famous National Park!
The room service is outstanding and very friendly like everyone in the resort.
And we loved the wildlife around; Iguanas, monkeys and so much more wildlife (even with some beautiful jungle walks)
We can’t recommend this hotel enough!
The food is awesome (try just normal french fries...yummyyyy) and the cocktails are sooo good!
We would definitely come back and if there was anything where we could complain, than the restaurant prices but even they are ok for the quality

Final stay in our Costa Rica trip and what a way to end. Staff were very welcoming and never failed to offer assistance. Rooms are well maintained and each evening a maid would attend to ask if we needed any additional items and offer late night chocolates! We were even called to ask how our day was and what the plans were for the next day!! Resident monkeys and sloth are amazing. Soo many good things to say and would highly recommend to any who are visiting Manuel Antonio! Pura Vida

Very welcoming staff, professional and discreet; we stayed at this hotel while traveling with our family. Excellent food. We had a very good and pleasant long week-end. We would like to say a big thank to Harold Rojas and the entire staff.

This was a wonderful hotel. No matter where you walked you save either the Pacific or the jungle. Each morning the trees were fill with wonderful birds and monkeys. We very much enjoyed our stay and would go back in minute.

Room Tip: Stay in the suites tower if you can.

I picked Parador Resort and Spa on a whim. I can’t imagine being more satisfied with a decision. The resort, accommodations, and staff surpassed my expectations. Simply flawless! I would like to send a special thank you to:
• Evelyn (reservations) for taking care of my travel arrangements
• Mr. Enrique (driver) for his warm welcome and introducing me to the magic of Costa Rica
• Cynthia (front desk) for the warmest welcome and making me feel so special
• Hazel (guest services) for being so very helpful when I needed it
• Maria (housekeeping) for taking such good care of me
• Yami (bartender) for the best smile and the tastiest mojitos
• Marjorie (chief) for satisfying my taste buds every morning
• Elias (tour guide) for the treks thru Manuel Antonio and Parador grounds. I would have missed so much without you
Thank you all for making my Costa Rican experience so pleasant and memorable. I can’t wait to see you again!
