Luxury eco-hotel with Manuel Antonio Park as its spectacular backdrop

Parador, an eco-hotel on the Punta Quepos peninsula, epitomises responsible luxury. Surrounded by 12 acres of tropical rainforest, the hotel is just moments from the famous Manuel Antonio National Park, home to hundreds of animal species and edged by spectacular stretches of sugar-white beaches.
Rooms range from penthouses to garden villas, with most offering panoramic views of the ocean and the sprawling national park. For honeymooners, the suites offer intimate luxury with private jacuzzis overlooking the lush jungle tumbling on to long sandy coasts. Three swimming pools offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio, one with a swim-up bar and two being adults-only, making this an ideal hotel for both honeymooners and families.
And after a sundowner overlooking the sea, four ocean-view restaurants offer wonderful dining options with both local and international dishes, or for a more private experience, guests can dine on their room decks or in the intimate wine cellar. A vast array of spa treatments are on offer, which can be enjoyed looking out of open windows above the rainforest. There’s also an abundance of activities to keep guests busy that can be organised from the hotel, from nature trails, canopy tours, horse riding, sail boat tours and wildlife adventures.
