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.

Nice place

Had a great time and good service. Only disappointment was that the access to the local culture was not made convenient. We stayed for over a week and enjoyed the resort but if we wanted to visit a local town we were told you had to make plans in advance. Luckily we met a local that ferried us over to Coco Beach, although touristy, we got a chance to visit with some of the locals and enjoy their culture. Overall the Four Seasons was a very nice place to stay.

If you can't afford to stay at the Four Seasons, at least make a trip there for lunch or dinner. Very luxurious grounds and wonderful amenities. Stop by the Bahia Grill by the pool for lunch and look up our new friend and bartender Joaquin for a refreshing cocktail and great conversation. If you go poolside you have to meet Andreina. She has a smile and personality to make your day. Great food, great service and the very friendly staff. We will be going back again soon.

Amazing stay!

I have stayed at many Four Seasons hotels and this might be the one of the best I have experienced. I loved the many complimentary activities they have scheduled throughout the day. This is truly a family destination and Four Seasons Costa Rica does a fantastic job of making families and kids all feel welcome. This trip was just for my wife and i but we will be returning with my son. The staff was always eager to please and always greeted me with a smile. I truly felt they had one intention to make me happy. I can not say enough about how friendly everyone was. Thank you Four Seasons fantastic job!
