Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica


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.

Drinks are a scam

The drinks here taste great.... however that’s because they’re all mixers. Stayed here for many days and visited the bar throughout the day; drinking overpriced alcohol which had no effect whatsoever. If I buy a $40 house whiskey and sprite then it should honestly do something but nope; four seasons has to half way water that bottle down. The fact that you can go to a bar and have 8 drinks and not even feel a buzz is beyond me. If you’re thinking about coming here to have a good time and enjoy a few drinks then save your money and buy a bottle of sprite or orange juice. This was absolutely ridiculous and I will never spend my money to stay at a four seasons again seeing how disrespectful they are to take my money without giving me what I truly paid for.


Absolutely beautiful resort filled with sun, fun, nature, wildlife, genuine staff, and the list goes on. So grateful for this incredible experience! A huge shout out to Maria from concierge. She went out of her way to make sure we had every part of our trip planned and special. She even sent cupcakes to our room for our business anniversary celebration. Check out the spa for an amazing hamam massage experience. The therapists actually make their own oil in house...and are very talented!
Thank you again four seasons!


From the entrance of Four Seasons to the staff a pure gem.
Cleanliness is impeccable. You are being catered to from the time you check in to time you check out.
The beaches are well kept very clean. We were very lucky to see the monkeys they put on quite a show. Never had to look for service when we were on the beach or at the pools. The rooms were very clean. Stocked with what we needed from shampoos to soaps. The bar was very stocked. Thank you Fours Seasons for making our stay .a memorable one. We will definitely be back.
