Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica

Overview

The country’s most luxurious take on eco-tourism, perched on a hillside above the Pacfic Ocean with views of golden beaches

The Lowdown

Quite possibly the most luxurious resort in Central America, the Four Seasons marries its international sense of chic and outstanding guest service with a spectacular natural environment. The 181 guest rooms, suites, and residences stretch up a hillside overlooking the ocean and jungle canopy of Peninsula Papagayo and are filled with rattan and bamboo furniture, indigenous wood, and stone and local artwork. Two beaches, four swimming pools, a world-class spa, a Kids for All Seasons children’s program, an 18-hole signature Arnold Palmer golf course, and multiple dining options provide all the comforts Four Seasons guests would expect (including an on-site surf school and non-motorized water sports) while positioning them close to eco-adventures like zip-lining over the rain forest canopy.

In the Area

Costa Rica is the capital for eco- and adventure tourism for very good reason. Nearby activities range from sport fishing in an area known as the “Jurassic Park” or fishing for its abundance of marlin, wahoo, and large tuna; to horseback riding on traditional cattle ranches; to canopy tours of the Monteverde Cloud Forest. The hotel offers an extensive list of carefully orchestrated day trips and tours, some close by and some as far afield as Nicaragua.

Perfection!

We fell in love with Costa Rica and would highly recommend Four Season at Peninsula Papagayo. The staff is friendly, polite, attentive and the property itself is beautiful. The restaurants were very good and we were even able to have the chef cook fish that my husband caught that morning.

Your amazing stay at the Four seasons

What can I say. It was quite the amazing stay with top quality service in every department. Extremely attentive staff. For example- the staff at every restaurant remembered exactly what you liked and what you didn't like every single day. The resort is placed on a beautiful peninsula where you had your choice of fresh fruit (Smoothie bar ????????) and seafood daily daily. Rooms were turned twice daily to fit personal liking. Beach staff makes sure you have all the adventures that you want. Thanks Kevin. We will be back soon!!

Pura Vida!!

If you get the opportunity to book a vacation in Costa Rica this is THE place to stay! Perfection!! From the moment I arrived I was met with smiles and assistance. My room was perfect, the front door faced the bay, the back deck faced the ocean. It was truly the experience of a lifetime.
