we loved the monkeys, birds especially the Macaws, crabs that came right up to our sliding door, and iguanas. we enjoyed the spa and the pools. And the staff was great. Our room was great with easy access to everything.

We read the extensive previous reviews (as you do!) before booking and the universally positive comments on wildlife swung our decision to stay here and we were not disappointed! 'Flash' the resident sloth, monkeys, iguanas, lizards, birds in abundance (including a toucan on our balcony!)! Terrific walking trails, guided early morning tours through the extensive grounds made it all worth...

This was our 'relax' after a tour of Costa Rica and were we glad that we had extended our extension to 6 days. We did have to wait some time for our room to be ready but I had emailed the hotel beforehand to ask for a room that overlooked bushes and trees rather than the tennis court that I...

The hotel property is very nice but I cannot recommend staying here at all. From the moment we arrived the staff was very cold and unfriendly. The only people that were nice at all were the bartenders and one of the waiters. The customer service was even worse. I asked the concierge to please call a particular restaurant to make...

Hits---Like others in on this site, this hotel offers stunning contradictions. A beautiful location. Perched on the highest point of what seemed like "hotel hill", overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Gorgeous views. Alot of wildlife. Iguanas, monkeys, parrots. Nice pools--not suitable for laps, but this is a resort, not the gym. Also, close to one of the beaches in the area....

Just spent three nights at Hotel Parador. At first, I was disappointed in the room. I had reserved a premium plus room which had a view of the pool and ocean but you had to look around several rooftops to get an unobstructed view. (The premium plus rooms are accessible only by a steep stairway or exterior lift and additional...

What a beautiful hotel this is! To add to its excellence the staff are quite wonderful, polite, helpful and always cheery. All rooms look over a canopy of trees to the Pacific Ocean .. magical. There are a few lovely trails in the grounds and I must say I've seen nearly as many wild animals and birds here as anywhere...

We were told that this hotel was large and a bit expensive but we found it quite delightful. It is busy and does ramble across a wide area, but the staff really do make every effort to look after the guests, and the setting is amazing. You dont' need to go to the Manuel Antonion National Park (which is much...

Absolutely loved it here! Good accommodation, food & service. Very friendly staff, nothing too much for them. There is a lovely nature walk to enjoy. Monkeys and iguanas are all around the place. Pool areas are all lovely & the whole place is clean.
