Parador Resort & Spa
The Latin America Travel Company Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★
The Parador is a grand resort perched high on the clifftop surrounded by jungle and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It’s privileged position affords outstanding panoramic views. This fairly big resort still feels intimate and secluded with many hidden corners and three different ocean view pools to choose from. There is also a ‘monkey trail’ that leads around the grounds where a variety of wildlife is often seen and a fun mini golf course tastefully designed within the peaceful gardens. Monkeys can be spotted by the side of the main pool eating from the mango trees!
With outstanding views to the pacific and a pool with a swim up bar, this is one of our favourite hotels in Costa Rica
The 129 rooms are divided into four separate buildings and all offer the same luxury amenities. For a special stay and the best views we recommend the vista suites which also feature a private jacuzzi on the balcony. The hotel is minutes from the national park and free daily shuttles are provided to the beach, a short 5 minute drive away. There are a selection of gourmet dining options, a rejuvenating spa, tennis courts and a wine cellar. Inspired by Spain, this prestigious hotel exudes old world charm and is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
