The hotel is beautiful. The main pool is so awesome; it's the sickest pool I had ever seen. It's close to a small secluded beach that you can walk to. This beach in my opinion is much better than the public beach in MA park. My husband and I did a night walk tour on Parador's property for $25 per person. We both enjoyed the tour. You can't get to any restaurants without a taxi. But most of the tours you do include a meal. And Parador's main restaurant has a really good lunch menu for a reasonable price; you can even order lunch menu during dinner time. Order the fish taco, seafood ceviche, and savory chicken crepe. These were my favorite dishes from them approxi $12-$15 each dish. We also paid around $30 for a steak dish and $20 for a pasta for dinner; but we weren't impressed. So lunch is cheaper and better. I saw black iguanas on the property and vultures that came to my balcony often. I ordered a mixed drink from the swim up bar; it was the best mixed drink ever. however the next day I ordered the exact same drink from another bartender from the main bar. He made the drink so gross that I couldn't even finish it. The good bartender was the skinnier one with darker skin than the other guy. My favorite time spent at MA was when my hubby and I were chilling at the hotel pool or taking a nap on our private balcony. We had a huge balcony; we got lucky. With all these being said. Enjoy your stay.
This hotel was fabulous! Phenomenal hotel staff, loved William, very friendly and concerned about your stay. They offer complimentary classes such as planting a tree or learning how to make Costa Rican tortillas. We did the tortilla class and they took us back to the living quarters of the hotel staff, show us where they live and eat before the class. I was amazed as to how detailed and clean their quarters were. Much cleaner than my own house LOL! And there are over 100 hotel staff that live there. The class was interesting and one of our favorite experiences of the trip.
The hotel lies on the side of a jungle mountain that connects to two beaches. One beach has strong waves and currents for the adults, the other is mild, perfect for children. Both are spectacular. Both beaches have a lifeguard and 24 security. Area around the hotel if full of jungle wildlife that never pester the guests but are close enough to enjoy. I will definitely return to this hotel!
We stayed here 2 nights and loved it! Beautiful rooms and gardens. Large buffet breakfast with lots to choose from. Friendly staff that was able to recommend and book tours for us. On the last day there we went snorkeling and got back after check out time - they held our luggage for us and they have a shower with everything you need for you to use. They also provide towels for when you go to the beach. Several restaurants within walking distance.
