Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo
Ranked #2 of 13 Hotels in Gulf of Papagayo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2011

This hotel is the champ, the best hotel my family has ever experienced, and ever expect to. Suite was huge and gorgeous, activites genuinely fun, totally kid friendly, but a pleasure for adults. Food wonderful - they made my daughter coffee ice cream from scratch on request, and carried my son up to his room when he fell asleep at dinner. Made friends with other guests, got cooking lesson from chef, and had teen lounge. Spa staff excellent. Want to win the lottery and live there.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade on arrival

We stayed early july at the hotel, it has been raining most of the time so we could not fully enjoy the place. The rooms are nice, a little dark but perfectly appointed and maintained.
The pools are beautiful, perfect service, same for the two beaches. The spa is beautiful, the staff is very welcoming & professional.
The restaurants are good (excellent sushi).. The atmosphere not special and varied enough considering you cannot go anywhere because the resort is remote. Caracol was delicious & Nice. We did not like the food at Di Mare.. But I understand most people liked it.
The activities are well organized and we can totally relax thanks to the professional staff.
It is missing a restaurant on the beach so you do not feel to be stuck in same building & we felt a bit odd to stay at a place that is so much like the U.S that it is not totally worth going to Costa Rica. But overall it is a nice place to go to relax, enjoy a wonderful massage... In particular if you avoid the rainy season.

Just returned from a week stay celebrating our 40th anniversary with family. Was expecting great things based on trip advisor reviews but the stay exceeded our expectations. This truly is one of the most beautiful and scenic places we have stayed. The service and friendliness of staff members is over the top. We will come back.
We did the Witch Rock Canopy tour, Trail of the Giants golf course tour (free), Palos Verdes riverboat tour, Goombay catamaran tour and all were excellent!
Fitness center and Spa were excellent! Try the 90 minute hot stone massage.
Great golf course minutes away with incredible ocean views.
Restaurants are all good but do not miss Marea at Prieta Beach Club down the road.
You can save some money by dining in and trying room service occasionally.
We had three canopy suites and the views were awesome. Do not hesitate to ask for a better view if not satisfied.
Book reservations through Virtuoso travel agency and get comp room upgrades, free breakfasts, golf and spa credits. Great breakfast buffet.
Finished up our stay with dinner on the beach for 10 that was the highlight of the trip.
Resort is kid friendly and our 6 and 8 yr old grandkids had a blast.
The 8 yr old learned to surf at Prieta Beach Club down the road and quickly picked it up.
Lots of free activities at four seasons beach including kayaks, snorkeling, small sailboats, paddle boarding etc.
We used Mainor Lara with Tours Your Way for airport transfers and Palos Verdes riverboat tour. I recommend him highly! He joined us on the tour and was just great!

The Four Seasons CR is one of the most beautiful resorts we’ve stayed. Set within in a reserve, the resort is surrounded by nature at its’ finest with a beautiful beach, gorgeous foliage and all sorts of little critters (coatis, crabs, iguanas & monkeys). The views of the ocean from the golf course are breathtaking as are the spectacular sunsets we witnessed.

The service is what you expect from The Four Seasons. Attentive and then some. What really stood out was their consideration and sensitivity to my niece’s nut allergy. The staff was diligent in double checking with the kitchen to ensure nothing she ordered had traces of nuts. In fact, one night I made reservations for the steakhouse, and without me mentioning anything, the concierge asked if anyone had food allergies. The Four Seasons really demonstrated customer service at its finest. Definitely not accustomed to the pro-activeness which went a long way with us given the attitude we received from the flight attendants to and from Costa Rica (regarding the nuts.)

The only thing ‘wrong’ with The Four Seasons is that it is a bit isolated. With the exception of surfing we did all of our excursions in Arenal, so we didn’t mind being resort bound. And even the 1 ½ hour drive to Playa Grande for surfing, wasn’t that big of a deal. We just made a little day out of it and ate dinner in Playa Grande, which was fun.
As others mentioned, The Four Seasons does come with price, but it’s so completely worth it. Not sure when we will return, but we definitely will!

For my job, I get to stay at some amazing properties but there is usually something I would change or wish was different with the hotel. It could be the food, it could be the service, etc.

This was not the case at the Four Seasons Costa Rica! I could not find a single fault during my entire stay (9 days). The food, service, property, rooms - EVERYTHING was perfect! I do want to point out that the service was truly exceptional in every way.

Suggestions:

Have the hotel shuttle you to the Beach Club which is a 3 minute ride away. The food is great and the pool/beach area is amazing!

If you are considering this hotel / destination - go NOW! They are expanding the airport and that will mean more flights coming in daily and most likely price increases.
