My husband and I recently spent a week at the Parador on a timeshare exchange. The room and bath were comfortable. There are limited cooking facilities as noted, but we were able to have breakfast, coffee and drinks in the room. An extensive buffet breakfast is offered, which we enjoyed one morning. Our room had a view of the ocean...

Luxurious hotel in a fantastic setting. Our room was a ground floor garden view, but no problems with the view. For its size the pool areas were small. The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The bus to the beach was really useful and beach towels were available. Eating in the hotel was expensive and we ate...

Dear Guest, We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We apologize for the inconvenience regarding the creamer sachets, but the humidity makes the powder inside clump up and get hard, so we keep them in the kitchen and supply them on request. Thanks for your understanding! Warm regards from Manuel Antonio!

Close access to Manuel Antonio National Park.

We only got to stay one day, but we were impressed with the rooms, the pools, the spectacular location and views. The staff was friendly and efficient. The best breakfast ever! I was there with my motorcycle riding buddies, but would like to take the wife. She would love it.
