Daily buffet breakfast included.

Perched high above the sweeping Pacific coastline is the deluxe Parador Resort & Spa, considered by many to be Costa Rica's most romantic destination. Boasting jaw-dropping panoramic views, sprawling grounds, and exotic wildlife, Parador Resort & Spa is dedicated to the protection and preservation of nature's wonders. In fact, the resort has earned a CST rating of 5 (Certified for Sustainable Tourism), the highest award on the scale.

Located in Manuel Antonio, Parador Resort & Spa offers first-class accommodations and a long list of exciting activities. Take a romantic walk along a white-sand beach. Swing through the rainforest canopy under hazy streamers of light. Experience piano music and fine dining at La Galeria, or slip away to La Reina Private Dining Room, an enclave of romance and Medieval style. The resort boasts four restaurants, four bars (including a swim-up bar), a world-class spa, three ocean-view pools (two are adults-only), tennis, and a fitness center. All suites offer spectacular ocean views from the terraces.

Scenic trails point the way to resident reptiles, rainbow-hued birds, and three species of monkeys. Evoking the Old-World charm of a traditional Spanish settlement, the resort pairs a breathtaking natural setting with European elegance.

Lovely location, pleasant staff, food good although it would be good if they had some house specials as after a week you would like a change of menu. Would recommend Costa Rica and the hotel as a wonderful place to visit.

We stayed for 2 nights and the hotel was amazing, for some reason unknown to us we were upgraded to a suite so had wonderful views. The resort itself had so much to offer wildlife walks views of the resident Sloth plus many passing birds. Food was very good as was the service

Room was terrific; great view, quiet , very clean. Enjoyed the private outdoor spa tub in the room. Pools were great temperature and exceptionally clean . Had toucans right outside our room and many macaws at sunset. Would definitely return
