Parador Boutique Resort & Spa
Gelegen op een heuvel, ca. 100 meter boven de zeespiegel met een schitterend uitzicht over de Stille Oceaan. Letterlijk en figuurlijk: op eenzame hoogte. ‘El Parador’ is een begrip. En niet alleen in de omgeving van Quepos/Manuel Antonio.
Over Parador Boutique Resort & Spa
De eigenaren zijn Nederlanders die een ‘boutique’ hotel avant-la-lettre bouwden. Jaren geleden begonnen zij met de constructie van hun droomhotel. Er moest een ‘top’ hotel komen op een van de mooiste, tegelijkertijd meest geïsoleerde plekjes van Costa Rica. De locatie was bepalend; een hoge heuvel, omringd door maagdelijk regenwoud, met aan de top een zeldzaam panoramisch uitzicht over het Manuel Antonio National Park. Toen de constructie uiteindelijk een feit was werd ‘la casa’ gevuld met kunst en antiquiteiten uit de eigen privé-collectie. Een adembenemende plek, een liefdevol gedecoreerd hotel, toegewijde eigenaren. Voeg daar de comfortabele kamers en uitgebreide faciliteiten aan toe en daarbij een gratis shuttleverbinding naar het strand. Geen wonder dat reizigers van heinde en verre de (stijle!) weg naar ‘El Parador’ weten te vinden.

Het Manuel Antonio National Park is een van de meest veelzijdige parken van Costa Rica. Onderweg komt u verschillende restaurants en bars tegen, waar u gezellig wat kunt eten voor of na het bezoek aan het park. Via het zilvergrijze strand Playa Espadilla bereikt u het park. Eenmaal binnen kunt u verschillende tochten door het park lopen, variërend van steil tot vlak. Een van de wandelingen die wij liepen is die naar het schiereiland Punta Cathedral, en deze tocht is zeer aan te raden! Tijdens de wandeling komt u zeldzame dieren tegen, zoals het doodskopaapje en de luiaard. Naast wandelen kunt u in Manuel Antonio National Park ook wildwatervaren en paardrijden, en tijdens een boottocht ziet u wellicht wel dolfijnen! Neemt u ook vooral uw snorkel mee, want vlakbij het park ligt ook een prachtig koraalrif!
I had a great time staying at this resort. It was beautiful, full of animals, had a nature trail to walk, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We had a medical issue come up during our stay and the concierge desk helped us get meds from a local pharmacy. They even delivered it to the resort for us. Truly unique! The food was good, but not exceptional. The Manuel Antonio park excursion booked through the hotel was great and the guide was extremely informative. We stayed in a suite and the rooms were nice and had ocean views. The housekeeper came twice a day, we were quite surprised. We did a couples massage and it was amazing! The massage therapist knew her job well and was able to work all the knots out of my shoulders. We would definitely would stay there again.
"Wonderful place for families!"
Arrived at the beautiful Hotel Parador around 1 pm, unsure if we (family and kids 8 &4 in tow) would be able to check in or not after a longish, hot drive from Jaco. Needn't have worried, our room was ready (& upgraded!) and we were greeted with a cold washcloth and fresh juice to sip on, kids got an ice cream sandwich. A golf cart took us to our room. What makes this hotel really special is all the cool trails to follow: theres a monkey trail and a beach trail, everywhere you turn, there is a neat hidden alcove with a bench for relaxing! Kids adored exploring this place! We were on the monkey trail for about 5 minutes when we spotted a 3-toed sloth about 5 feet from us, followed by a troop of spider monkeys and I couldn't turn around with out seeing an iguana! The pool was absolutely lovely, the view is spectacular, and the poolside service and swim up bar were fantastic. Breakfast was full of choices. Hugely recommend for families, this was such a neat experience for myself and kids. Had a great 2-night stay!
"Costa RIca Holiday"
Excellent place for couples, made us feel special on our anniversary and offered excellent customer service. Would definitely go back again and recommend the hotel to family and friends. Great little beach close by that wasn't as busy as the one in the provincial park
We had a dinner at the restaurant here, towards the end of a week in wonderful Costa Rica, but didn't stay in the hotel. The ambience, decor and service were a bit posh compared with most of the places we had stayed and eaten in, but it was a nice change. I expect there is a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean from the al fresco dining area, but it was already dark by the time we ate. Great food: a spectacular amuse bouche of plantain ceviche; spicy tuna sushi rolls from the extensive fresh sushi menu; mahi mahi fish special dish, with sweet potato puree and mango ceviche. Classy stuff, well presented and well served, with a bit of cheesy live music in the background.
We arrived at the Parador around 7:30PM early September. The check-in was rushed on the part of the hotel staff. No sooner had we arrived, a drink was placed in our hands and we were rushed off to our room in the golf cart. I was considering an upgrade, however because the check-in was so rushed and the staff didnâ€™t offer an upgrade it didnâ€™t happen. I was surprised because the property was really empty during our stay. On the way to the room, we were both afraid of dropping our drinks as we were bouncing around and I thought I was going to fall off the golf cart as I tried to hold on to my drink, rooms keys, bag etc. and not get hurt. I think the person checking us in meant well because he assumed correctly that we were tired but it felt very rushed. We had a garden room which was adequate and nothing to write home about. The hotel is stunning. There are alcoves placed around the property for relaxing. We ventured out along the Monkey trail which was so much fun. At one point it seemed like the monkeys were following us and one pooped on my daughterâ€™s rain poncho which was a hoot. We visited the beach which is very close to the property. The golf cart brought us to the entrance and after reading the reviews here I thought the walk would be challenging but it was really easy to moderate. We were put off by all the litter at the entrance. Once we reached the beach someone came over to us and addressed me by my name which was odd because he wasnâ€™t from the hotel so I assumed someone must have called to tell them we were coming. He offered us an $18 dollar lunch which we declined. To be honest, I was not at all impressed with this beach and we both wanted to leave as soon as we got there and get back to our â€œsafe â€œhotel. I would definitely not leave any belongings there. We saw monkeys which made the short trip worthwhile. The breakfast buffet was delicious. I especially enjoyed the variety of fresh pressed juices and array of delicious food. Upon checking out, my Bank of America card declined which was really annoying because I had reported my trip to them and thought it was all set but they shut if off for suspicious charges. After I returned it was true that my card was compromised on the 2nd day of my trip and used by a person based out of Mexico to order Netflix (they watched Spanish movies) and iTunes and other small erroneous charges. I only have one credit card so I was very worried but it all worked out fine. Another problem I encountered twice was with the Grey Line Bus. The bus didnâ€™t arrive as scheduled and I had the front desk call them. Luckily we were picked up eventually which made me wonder if they had forgotten us. Make sure you reconfirm your pick-up if youâ€™re traveling by bus. Also, I booked a flight with Natura Air to take me from La Fortuna back to SJO and it was canceled a few days for no reason leaving me scrambling to book another bus trip with Greyline. It is going on five weeks and they have yet to refund my money. There was also a problem with the pick-up in La Fortuna and it seemed the Greyline bus driver didnâ€™t have my name because the drivers switched and the information wasnâ€™t communicated even though I booked several days in advance. Thankfully we werenâ€™t stranded. Once again, I had the hotel reconfirm before departure that day and highly recommend checking your reservation. I also recommend not booking your return flight home on the day of travel due to the possibility of trip interruption given the setbacks that occurred during my trip. I would definitely stay at the Parador again. We only left the property to go on the park tour, so I canâ€™t say much about the area.
