Overview Reviews
WHY PARADOR? A parador (stopping place) is a staple of the Spanish countryside, when old castles and convents were transformed into hostelries for weary knights and travelers. Inspired by these welcoming retreats, the Dutch Schans family opened the doors of their own parador in Costa Rica in 1995. Today, Parador Resort & Spa is the only full-service resort located in Manuel Antonio. We have earned a number of prestigious awards not only for our world-class service and amenities, but also for our passionate commitment to both the environment and the community. Our range of accommodation options go from the excellent to the absolutely amazing, and our location is second to none. We offer an oasis of calm with soaring views surrounded by lush rainforest, where youll spend your Costa Rica vacation blissfully isolated from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, but just minutes from Manuel Antonio National Park, miles of white sand beaches, restaurants, the local airport and the village of Quepos. Why Parador Resort & Spa? Keep clickingwe know youll find the answer.

Pros: The view was amazing!
9.7 Excellent
Pros: Wildlife, hiking trails, beach, luxury
9.1 Excellent
Pros: 24 hour pool, great breakfast, clean air conditioned rooms
Cons: Taxi drivers hanging out front. They charge between 3000-6000 collones ($6-12) just to get you out to the main road (less than 2km / around 1 mile) depending on how much they think they can get from you. Hotel does provide a free shuttle, but it doesn't run past 5pm.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. When we got to Parador, they upgraded us to the suite because we were on our honeymoon. The stuff were extremely nice, the room was very clean, comfortable and big and the location was perfect. It's a beautiful place and the view from the pool is great. We even saw animals at the hotel- monkeys, iguanas, raccoon and a sloth. We highly recommend Parador, the best choice in Manuel Antonio and our trip in general.
Cons: We couldn't stay longer.

Pros: Pool
Cons: Nothing
5.7 Okay
Cons: I forgot some things at my room at check-out. I came back 2 hours later and asked for them. They told me to wait while they got them. After 1.5 hours of waiting I just couldn´t get my things back and lost 1.5 hours of my day waiting. I kept asking what happened and they always said 2 more minutes. So I ended up spending 1.5 hours of my weekend in the lobby arguing with the employees for them to tell me we can´t give you your things back

Cons: I had to leave :(

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lots of wildlife just around the hotel and in there monkey trail. Plenty of sloths
Cons: The food was lovely, but quite slow. Plus recommend booking a table as can be waiting a while sometimes.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Staff Room
Cons: Not very close from Espadilla, main Manuel Antonio beach, but has Biesanz Beach close by.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel itself is truly beautiful and amazing, especially the pool. The staff was mostly nice. The breakfast, drinks, and menu offerings were all tasty, too. The tours through the hotel were great as well. Everything was reasonably priced as well considering how nice the place is. Location was a bit further than other places, but not bad.
Cons: We went for our 10 year anniversary - I wanted to make sure everything was just right. I called twice to confirm the request that our room had a king bed instead of 2 queens. Unfortunately, when we got there, the hotel had already run out of king rooms (tropical). When I first heard of this, I put a sizable bill on the counter to nicely ask about getting it right and all they told me was that we would be moved the next night (Sunday) after other guests left. I was not happy. I later found out from another employee that they had plenty of suites available, but that room was never offered to us. To make matters worse that night, the entire hotel lost water and we were not able to shower after a long day in planes and San Jose. The hotel was solely responsible for us having the only bad night of our trip. The rooms were basic and clean, but having to pack our stuff and move made us VERY unhappy. Oh, and only a couple of the tropical rooms have any ocean view at all - partial at best for those. Don't expect anything special unless you get a suite (which appeared truly wonderful)!
5.1 Okay
Pros: Staff
Cons: Many stairs to go to the Room, The First room that we saw not smell good

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Top Location Friendly staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was amazing!! The location, the views, the rooms, the pool, and the staff. I can truly say it was the best place we stayed at in all of Costa Rica. The room we stayed in had a partial view but was still amazing and very spacious. The tours were easy to organize with the staff we did the canopy and the national park with a guide. The views and food at the restaurant were amazing. The drinks even better. The pool was easily accessible and had a bar to enjoy food and drinks. We loved this place so much and the staff were the ones that made it truly a place we would love to go back to.
Cons: Nothing this place was amazing!!
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Incredible views of the area especially at sunrise and sunset. Helpful and accommodating staff. Included shuttle is very helpful to get to beach and I especially appreciated how our shuttle driver brought us right to the park entrance (went a bit further on the road from the beach drop off).
Cons: Restaurant was a bit overpriced for dinner for food that was not very flavorful, however the included breakfast was excellent. Had many difficulties booking and paying through website, though was able to resolve by fax reservation.
6.8 Good
Pros: The view is incredible, the rooms/beds are comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. Falafel Bar across the street had great food too.
Cons: Some of the staff were rude and came off pretentious. This is especially annoying when you're on vacation and just want to let loose. TOO MANY KIDS. They pretty much took up the entire pool, were loud and spent all day there. I didn't have a moment to enjoy it until I went after 10pm. DO NOT GO TO FRED'S next door. We stepped in for a minute to check it out and the guy immediately hollered at us from across the place that we had to spend at least $10 or we had to leave. Um bye. The Wi-Fi also went down for an entire day, for the price you pay to stay here this was unacceptable.
6.8 Good
Pros: Beautiful hotel. Close to activities & great ocean views
Cons: Beds are horrible. Old & no box springs. Seven nights was almost unbearable. Ant's in the room. Overpriced for the supposed best hotel in town.

Pros: Beautiful property and excellent staff
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic surrundings, the gartners are the sweetest (especially the eldest, who waves and say hi every time you see him - we are gonna miss him and his good spirit!!), and the garden is so beautiful! Good advice from the reception to the trip to the national park - and you can get a breakfast to go Lots of leguanas and butterflys, and the most luxury room I’ve ever stayed in :)
Cons: Pool and the area around could be cleaner The restaurant closed 2 hours before it should, so we didn’t get to eat the first evening The sandwich in the breakfast to go was very very dry and boring
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice pool area. Comfy beds
Cons: Breakfast is improvable, dinner was ok.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazingly clean. Staff are exceptional and obviously well trained. The room we were assigned was spacious, the bed was firm and the selection of pillows satisfied our preferences. The property, the gardens and on site trails are marvellous.
Cons: Likely everyone will comment on the road noise. It is evident but is easily overcome when you consider the amenities La Fortuna offers. Frankly I can’t imagine a place CR that will provide a completely soundproof experience.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good. Location is out of town, about 5-7km from Quepos & manuel Antonio. Great if you like quietness & peace. Need a car to go wherever. resort does have a free shuttle, but it still somewhat limits your mobility. Resort has its own nature park (free to roam around) & can sell you tickets for Manuel Antonio National Park.
Cons: Food at the Lantana restaurant & the Sports Bar is terrible. This is the only major drawback of this resort
4.0 Okay
Pros: Clean rooms.
Cons: We did not get the room promised. King bed booked, got 2 doubles, food was really bad, cocktails terrible and expensive. Host showed us to our room and did not even try to help me or my wife with bags and packages. We are retired and able but it would have been nice to take the roller bag for my wife.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The workmen started at 8:30 am outside our room which is too early when on holidays They were using saws etc too loud when we mentioned it at the desk they looked shock but no apology
7.0 Good
Pros: The staff is really nice. There is a big parking area in the property. The rooms are comfortable. The bathrooms are rather modern compared to the average. Great temperature of the swimming pool. More modern hotel than average. They sell ticket for Manuel Antonio Park, which avoids the queue over there. Many towels available - fluffy and which smell good.
Cons: The worst in this property is its situation by the big road. There is no way you'll be quiet in your room, never. Trucks feel like IN your room. The breakfast is too simple for this kind of hotel, really few options, and quite a lame-looking kind of buffet. The pool doesn't seem clean. From one side underwater you can't see the other side although it's small...
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, lovely pool very nice setting
Cons: Close to main road so quite noisy at night time with trucks passing by

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely room with contemporary rain shower head in the bathroom and lovely surfaces. Attractive grounds and unfailingly helpful courteous staff. Near National Park Manuel Antonio for easy walking to entrance and to the Espadilla beach without the noise of being “next door.” Good air conditioner in the room.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Beds were comfortable. Grounds were very nicely maintained Pool and restauarw noce GREAT thatbwe could buy tickets to Manuel Antonio park at our reception. Parking was very convenient.
Cons: Wifi was terrible. Had to be near reception office to get setvice. Our first breakfast was terrible. Huevos Rancheros were awful! The secomd day’s breakfast was much better.
8.0 Excellent
Cons: Nice hotel in a great location. However, to unlock the door from the inside of the room, one must use a key (which can be a little tricky to use) which could be a fire or health hazard if someone has to exit the room immediately due to a fire or medical need and they either can't find the key or their spouse or roommate is out somewhere with the key. Other than that it's a nice place.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast, dinner etc. were beyond fantastic! Breakfast was a full meal with your own choice of the main dish . There were a lot of fruits and the kitchen staff was super friendly. Please try their Tres-leches - very yummy! The Wifi in the room was great. The room was also very clean. There was ample parking. It was also super close to the Manuel Antonio park - about 300 yards - so one could leave the car behind and walk. It is also possible to book tours from the hotel. We booked the boat tour to the mangrove/Damas island and it was a really good choice. They also have night tours from the hotel - a tad expensive- but one should do it if not raining.
Cons: The only thing was in my room there was no desk or chairs, so we had to bring in a couple from the patio. Also, there was no separate bolt on the door - you had to use the key every time and it was a bit inconvenient. The other thing was there was only coffee - no teabag in the room . We had to get that from the front desk. I understand all of CR are mainly coffee drinkers - but many international travelers do need their tea.
7.5 Good
Pros: Within 5 mins walk of Manuel Antonio National Park. Room was comfortable, bed was nice, bathroom a little dated but clean. Breakfast was nice. Staff were quite friendly, except for when I had laundry done and asked if it could be brought to the room and a girl of reception just said “No”.
Cons: Drinks are listed without the 23% tax so watch out for that. Pool is a lot smaller than it looks on the photos, but it’s well maintained and we had it to ourselves so didn’t mind. Area is really tacky and touristy, didn’t have a good meal whilst we were there and tried several places. Better options are up the hill in Manuel Antonio proper. This was meant to be a bit of a treat hotel, but we left feeling quite nonplussed about it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful New Year party! Restaurant in the harden was really nice and food was great. The cocktails were also really good, especially during Hyde three hour happy hour
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was absolutely amazing, especially in the restaurant and bar area. Ronnie graciously helped us with several special requests, including arranging “to go” lunches for us to take fishing, and preparing our catch for dinner afterwards. He also helped us store our fish until time to leave. The hotel’s location is also excellent. The pool, restaurant and bar areas are really nice.
Cons: A bit expensive for the age of the rooms. They are beginning to renovate the rooms.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Don Bernard and Doña Marlene are fantastic and all accommodating. The rooms are clean and the food is fresh and good. AC works goof but you have to reset it each time you get back in the room.
Cons: You've got to have a car. We depended on taxis, but they hooked us up with Michael who took us everywhere we wanted to go. With that said, we couldn't walk anywhere, there's absolutely nothing near the place other the mangrove right next door. The air conditioning goes out when the door is open and you have to turn it back on when you get back in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very quiet and peaceful place to avoid the crowds of Manuel Antonio. Nice breakfast with lots of fruits. Marlen and Beandon are very kind persons and gave us good recommendation for dinner and taught me spanish. I should have prolonged our stay approx by 2 weeks to be fluent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The Kayak Lodge is about 10‘ Car Drive from Quepos and 15‘ from Manuel Antonio. Its located right next to a beautiful Mangrove Forest and you can do a fantastic Kayak Tour there. for us it was even better than the National Park Manuel Antonio. Guide Maurillio is very experienced and know a lot about nature. we saw monkeys, birds and crabs!
Cons: the rooms are a bit dark
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Marlene was a wonderful host! Our stay was exceptional. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was exceptional. We had a great trip.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The Kayak Lodge was a very pleasant surprise. We had to cancel our reservation at a VERY expensive resort in Manuel Antonio for logistical reasons and booked the further away Kayak Lodge for a greatly reduced cost ($150/night vs. $400/night). The room, grounds, facilities, common areas, and pool were immaculate. My daughter said that it was the first place we had stayed during the trip (and we stayed at some very fine places) where she felt comfortable walking barefoot in the room. The owner (Marlene) and her staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. When we needed a late check out, we got it. The Manuel Antonio guide Marlene arranged for us (Millia (sp?)) was the best guide we had in Costa Rica! (Millia suggested & arranged a catamaran trip for the next day that was also a LOT of fun). Although the taxi to and from Quepos was about $10 one way (and a little more for Manuel Antonio) it was readily available and what we spent on taxis was more than made up for by what we saved on the room! Breakfast is included (indeed I think Kayak is deemed to be a B&B) and Marlene and her assistants prepared a delicious spread - complete with homemade guava jam! Also included gallo pinto, watermelon, pineapple, fried plantain, eggs, toast, etc. Mangrove tour was also fun. Highly recommend the Kayak Lodge.
Cons: It was a little far from the "action" but we had dinner in Quepos at the marina both nights and don't feel like we missed much by being a little farther out!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were very sweet and accommodating. She gave us a choice of any room at the time . Breakfast was good. 15 mins from Manuel Antonio park

Pros: Daniella the operations manager does the utmost in keeping everything first class. She has amassed a fantastic group of staff. From Cici and David at the front desk, Arnold at the pool bar, Chris that does everything, to everyone at the restaurant and Alnice (sp) at the Cave Bar. To many to list all but they made me feel like family.

Pros: We enjoyed our first class stay from the moment we arrived on this lovely property. The front desk person greeted us warmly and we felt like family right away. They upgraded us without even asking and our room with the beach view was immaculate, adorable and had an amazing view. The breakfasts every morning were truly delicious, I am a vegetarian, a bit on the fussier side and the breakfast was a 10 and the portions fed me for both lunch and dinner. My husband and I would stay there next time as well.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were wonderful. On arrival we were greeted with a cold drink and Christophe gave us guided tour of the hotel facilities. The hotel has fantastic views over Manuel Antonio National Park. We saw white-faced monkeys, Iguanas, green parrots and Macaws from the room, which was spacious and comfortable. There was a lovely choice of food for breakfast and the quality was exceptional. We attended a drinks reception on our first evening, which was intended to promote conversation with other guests. As a result, we made some good friends we will keep in touch with. A washing machine and drier are available for guests at a nominal charge.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.

Pros: Great Hotel, staff, location and services
Cons: All was good
9.0 Excellent
Pros: It is a small hotel so the bar, pool and restaurant were lovely and quiet all of the time. The location was great, with views over the forest to the bay beyond. There we also views into the Quepos bay from the bar. From our room we saw an amazing array of birds, including 2 different types of toucan on a tree close by. We even saw whales blowing in the bay.
Cons: The restaurant had great views, but in the evening the decor was a bit tired and the vent for the kitchen air conditioning was noisy. We only ate there the first night and ate twice in Amelio's cafe up the hill which had a great vibe, excellent food and a great view. It was also much less expensive than the hotel restaurant for much better food.

8.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, right by the park entrance and a 2 minute walk to the beach outside of the park and restaurants/shops. The hotel is really nice, clean and amenities were great, especially the pool with the big slide which was a big hit with the kids. Breakfast was very nice too and had a wide variety of items. The staff were all extremely nice and accommodating.
Cons: The bed was hard and sheets were awful. My daughter slept on a little bed they provided which was more of a cot with no real mattress, so quite uncomfortable. The dinner buffet had little variety although everything was really fresh.
7.5 Good
Pros: Great views, rooms with lots of space.
Cons: Run like an old big hotel, with no focus on the customer nor service details. Expensive for what you get. Breakfast was poor. An average hotel. No expresó machine. No frigobar. No shop for water, candy etc. Hot in common areas, no AC nor ceiling fans (!).

Pros: Terrible wifi, i had to stand beside the door to have any access to wifi
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in a deluxe room with a king bed and jacuzzi bath. It was outstanding. We could see the ocean from our balcony and the rainforest is quite literaly right next to the property. I can't say enough about how good the experience was. I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if I went back. Christian, one of the hotel's concierge staff members, was especially helpful. I went on an excursion and accidentally left my credit card back at the hotel, except I needed it for the excursion. Christian exceeded my expectations by helping with the logistics by finding a workaround to avoid what would have otherwise been a big problem. As a result, I had an amazing experience. Everything else was incredible - from the swim up bar in the pool to the roof deck. I really can't say enough about it.
Cons: Everything about the property and staff consistently exceeded my expectations. I have no complaints.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is right next to the rain forest and is pretty amazing! You can see monkeys from your room. It's walking distance to the beach as well. Staff was very good as well.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved staying here!! The hotel was absolutely gorgeous and the staff was so, so friendly. The staff members greeted us by name and we always felt welcome. The location of the hotel is superb and so close to the beach. I would definitely stay here again!
Cons: No beach view from our room, but the proximity to the beach and other key attractions more than made up for it.

Pros: The perfect combination of an amazing mission (Kids Saving The Rainforest) a caring staff, and a wide variety of rainforest animals. The landscape is spectacular. Adjacent to the KSTR animal rehabilitation center and sanctuary, the Blue Banyan property consists of villas surrounding a community area with a lobby and restaurant. The pool was serene and uncrowded. We saw wild toucans and a wild sloth. The KSTR rescue center has many animals and taking the tour is definitely worthwhile. We had the honor of volunteering for two days, and the staff made sure that the experience was memorable. Our time with Chip, Jennifer, and their staff was the highlight of our Costa Rican adventure. Note: The location is secluded; 15 minutes from the highway. 4WD isn’t needed.

9.1 Excellent
Pros: We LOVED our stay at Villa Mymosa. Our unit was huge, with a kitchen with all the utensils needed to cook meals & a full-sized fridge/freezer so we could even have ice cream. The pool was the perfect temperature & with only 10 units, it was never crowded. The staff were all friendly & helpful, but our favorite was the owner's dog, Meg. So nice to have a furry head to pet when missing our own! Villa Mymosa is set a little above town, so you feel separated from the hustle of Quepos. And the monkeys! We saw tons of capuchins, partly because the owner directed us to where they would be during breakfast. How can you complain about a place that has a morning monkey travel report? Great stay, highly recommend.
Cons: No complaints!
6.0 Good
Pros: I liked how friendly the people who worked here were, very helpful. Close to the beach.
Cons: The price was good but there were a few issues like if you flush the toilet, the shower didn't work for about 10 minutes, the toilet wasnt working properly the whole time, we had to hold the flushing part down for at least 10 seconds for it to flush properly. Out of all the electrical outlets maybe 3 plugs worked. There were lots of gaps In the window and door frames for mosquitoes, ants and other flying insects to come in. I was told I would have an oven but didnt. The blender and microwave were clearly supposed to be white but where a yellow color. If your looking for luxury this isn't the place

Cons: Humidity in the room.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: We saw a macaw bird in the tree outside.
Cons: The wifi access didnt work in our room, the room is very dated, one portable cooling unit produced only hot air. The double doors to the room did not provide a safe secure environment. Water pressure in the shower was pitiful and the water went to cold before the end of our short showers. Could not have an omellet at breakfast as they said there was no cheese.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was super clean, breakfast was great, we also had lunch there and the food is excellent with generous portions. We had an ocean view room that totally upped the vacation experience, a real treat to see the sunrise over the bay! Highly recommend the top floor ocean view rooms. Pool was Very Clean! Front desk staff very helpful :)
Cons: Minute details that didnt detract from our experience. We were 2 adults and 2 kids but only got 2 bath towels in the bathroom, I had packed the kids beach towels anyways so we were fine, front desk staff were really nice so I'm sure they would have given us 2 more if I asked,,,,....we wanted to order lunch from the restaurant menu and eat by the pool, but they couldnt accomodate because of limited staff that day, which was a bummer for the kids...also dont be turned off by the parking situation, there is a hotel parking very close by, but we parked on the street in front of the hotel and the hotel guard happily kept an eye on it.....ummm, also as we were there with kids I had doubts about the casino on the property, but it was quite calm and we didnt even notice it
7.0 Good
Pros: Waterfront location & balcony
Cons: Street noise and no hot water
8.2 Excellent
Pros: This hotel gets high marks from out while family. We had three rooms for two days for six adults and two very young children (11months old and 3 years old). The staff is outstanding from the front desk to the cleaning staff everyone made our stay very pleasant. The rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable. The only issues we had were lack of hot water early the first morning and very noisy the first night due to football celebrations everywhere around the hotel (the rooms are not soundproof in any way). They offer secure parking about two blocks away but there is pleanty of on street parking for loading and unloading and parking long term if you want. We really loved the food in the on site Resturant and the ice cream parlor just outside the hotel. It was very close to Manuel Antonio National Park and beach. Which is where we spent a lot of our time. They also help arrange tours if you want them and several in our group went on the mangrove tour. Beautiful location, fantastic sunsets. We really loved our trip.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful garden and swimming pool
Cons: Staff was mainly interested in getting money and time. Wanted us to pay the very first day and not when checking out, as this is usually the case in hotels.

Not even a glass of water was offered, everything came with a price.

Pros: Beautiful landscape and nice staff.
Cons: We got the worst double queen room right at the entrance. The walls are so thin we can hear guesses hanging out in the area or simply checkin out. Didn’t have a single good sleep in 3 nights stay. Parking is doable but relatively scarce. Too far of a walk to center. I don’t recommend.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Don Bernard and Doña Marlene are fantastic and all accommodating. The rooms are clean and the food is fresh and good. AC works goof but you have to reset it each time you get back in the room.
Cons: You've got to have a car. We depended on taxis, but they hooked us up with Michael who took us everywhere we wanted to go. With that said, we couldn't walk anywhere, there's absolutely nothing near the place other the mangrove right next door. The air conditioning goes out when the door is open and you have to turn it back on when you get back in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very quiet and peaceful place to avoid the crowds of Manuel Antonio. Nice breakfast with lots of fruits. Marlen and Beandon are very kind persons and gave us good recommendation for dinner and taught me spanish. I should have prolonged our stay approx by 2 weeks to be fluent

Pros: The Kayak Lodge is about 10‘ Car Drive from Quepos and 15‘ from Manuel Antonio. Its located right next to a beautiful Mangrove Forest and you can do a fantastic Kayak Tour there. for us it was even better than the National Park Manuel Antonio. Guide Maurillio is very experienced and know a lot about nature. we saw monkeys, birds and crabs!
Cons: the rooms are a bit dark
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Marlene was a wonderful host! Our stay was exceptional. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was exceptional. We had a great trip.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The Kayak Lodge was a very pleasant surprise. We had to cancel our reservation at a VERY expensive resort in Manuel Antonio for logistical reasons and booked the further away Kayak Lodge for a greatly reduced cost ($150/night vs. $400/night). The room, grounds, facilities, common areas, and pool were immaculate. My daughter said that it was the first place we had stayed during the trip (and we stayed at some very fine places) where she felt comfortable walking barefoot in the room. The owner (Marlene) and her staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. When we needed a late check out, we got it. The Manuel Antonio guide Marlene arranged for us (Millia (sp?)) was the best guide we had in Costa Rica! (Millia suggested & arranged a catamaran trip for the next day that was also a LOT of fun). Although the taxi to and from Quepos was about $10 one way (and a little more for Manuel Antonio) it was readily available and what we spent on taxis was more than made up for by what we saved on the room! Breakfast is included (indeed I think Kayak is deemed to be a B&B) and Marlene and her assistants prepared a delicious spread - complete with homemade guava jam! Also included gallo pinto, watermelon, pineapple, fried plantain, eggs, toast, etc. Mangrove tour was also fun. Highly recommend the Kayak Lodge.
Cons: It was a little far from the "action" but we had dinner in Quepos at the marina both nights and don't feel like we missed much by being a little farther out!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hosts were very sweet and accommodating. She gave us a choice of any room at the time . Breakfast was good. 15 mins from Manuel Antonio park

Pros: We enjoyed our first class stay from the moment we arrived on this lovely property. The front desk person greeted us warmly and we felt like family right away. They upgraded us without even asking and our room with the beach view was immaculate, adorable and had an amazing view. The breakfasts every morning were truly delicious, I am a vegetarian, a bit on the fussier side and the breakfast was a 10 and the portions fed me for both lunch and dinner. My husband and I would stay there next time as well.

Pros: The staff were wonderful. On arrival we were greeted with a cold drink and Christophe gave us guided tour of the hotel facilities. The hotel has fantastic views over Manuel Antonio National Park. We saw white-faced monkeys, Iguanas, green parrots and Macaws from the room, which was spacious and comfortable. There was a lovely choice of food for breakfast and the quality was exceptional. We attended a drinks reception on our first evening, which was intended to promote conversation with other guests.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: It is a small hotel so the bar, pool and restaurant were lovely and quiet all of the time. The location was great, with views over the forest to the bay beyond. There we also views into the Quepos bay from the bar. From our room we saw an amazing array of birds, including 2 different types of toucan on a tree close by. We even saw whales blowing in the bay.
Cons: The restaurant had great views, but in the evening the decor was a bit tired and the vent for the kitchen air conditioning was noisy. We only ate there the first night and ate twice in Amelio's cafe up the hill which had a great vibe, excellent food and a great view. It was also much less expensive than the hotel restaurant for much better food.

Cons: Taxi drivers hanging out front. They charge between 3000-6000 collones ($6-12) just to get you out to the main road (less than 2km / around 1 mile) depending on how much they think they can get from you. Hotel does provide a free shuttle, but it doesn't run past 5pm.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. When we got to Parador, they upgraded us to the suite because we were on our honeymoon. The stuff were extremely nice, the room was very clean, comfortable and big and the location was perfect. It's a beautiful place and the view from the pool is great. We even saw animals at the hotel- monkeys, iguanas, raccoon and a sloth. We highly recommend Parador, the best choice in Manuel Antonio and our trip in general.

5.7 Okay
Cons: I forgot some things at my room at check-out. I came back 2 hours later and asked for them. They told me to wait while they got them. After 1.5 hours of waiting I just couldn´t get my things back and lost 1.5 hours of my day waiting. I kept asking what happened and they always said 2 more minutes. So I ended up spending 1.5 hours of my weekend in the lobby arguing with the employees for them to tell me we can´t give you your things back

Pros: Staff Room
Cons: Not very close from Espadilla, main Manuel Antonio beach, but has Biesanz Beach close by.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The hotel itself is truly beautiful and amazing, especially the pool. The staff was mostly nice. The breakfast, drinks, and menu offerings were all tasty, too. The tours through the hotel were great as well. Everything was reasonably priced as well considering how nice the place is. Location was a bit further than other places, but not bad.
Cons: We went for our 10 year anniversary - I wanted to make sure everything was just right. I called twice to confirm the request that our room had a king bed instead of 2 queens. Unfortunately, when we got there, the hotel had already run out of king rooms (tropical). When I first heard of this, I put a sizable bill on the counter to nicely ask about getting it right and all they told me was that we would be moved the next night (Sunday) after other guests left. I was not happy. I later found out from another employee that they had plenty of suites available, but that room was never offered to us. To make matters worse that night, the entire hotel lost water and we were not able to shower after a long day in planes and San Jose. The hotel was solely responsible for us having the only bad night of our trip. The rooms were basic and clean, but having to pack our stuff and move made us VERY unhappy. Oh, and only a couple of the tropical rooms have any ocean view at all - partial at best for those. Don't expect anything special unless you get a suite (which appeared truly wonderful)!

Pros: Everything was amazing!! The location, the views, the rooms, the pool, and the staff. I can truly say it was the best place we stayed at in all of Costa Rica. The room we stayed in had a partial view but was still amazing and very spacious. The tours were easy to organize with the staff we did the canopy and the national park with a guide. The views and food at the restaurant were amazing. The drinks even better. The pool was easily accessible and had a bar to enjoy food and drinks. We loved this place so much and the staff were the ones that made it truly a place we would love to go back to.
Cons: Nothing this place was amazing!!
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Incredible views of the area especially at sunrise and sunset. Helpful and accommodating staff. Included shuttle is very helpful to get to beach and I especially appreciated how our shuttle driver brought us right to the park entrance (went a bit further on the road from the beach drop off).
Cons: Restaurant was a bit overpriced for dinner for food that was not very flavorful, however the included breakfast was excellent. Had many difficulties booking and paying through website, though was able to resolve by fax reservation.
6.8 Good
Pros: The view is incredible, the rooms/beds are comfortable and the breakfast is delicious. Falafel Bar across the street had great food too.
Cons: Some of the staff were rude and came off pretentious. This is especially annoying when you're on vacation and just want to let loose. TOO MANY KIDS. They pretty much took up the entire pool, were loud and spent all day there. I didn't have a moment to enjoy it until I went after 10pm. DO NOT GO TO FRED'S next door. We stepped in for a minute to check it out and the guy immediately hollered at us from across the place that we had to spend at least $10 or we had to leave. Um bye. The Wi-Fi also went down for an entire day, for the price you pay to stay here this was unacceptable.
6.8 Good
Pros: Beautiful hotel. Close to activities & great ocean views
Cons: Beds are horrible. Old & no box springs. Seven nights was almost unbearable. Ant's in the room. Overpriced for the supposed best hotel in town.
