“Great Luxury in a Remote Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The Four Seasons was great! The property is beautiful and the rooms are gorgeous! The staff did everything to make our stay wonderful. The resort is quite a drive from town so if you are looking to leave know that you will have a really long drive. It is close to zip lining and that was a fun excursion. Every day the ice cream wagon comes to the pool! It was awesome! They also have a sunset ceremony on the beach each night that is nice. Lastly, the food is really good, too. Make sure you make a reservation. The steak place at the golf course is awesome and so is the fish place at the beach/pool club and they will drive you to both. Make sure you take advantage of their activities, too. Cooking, walking giants, golf cart tour etc... PS. The spa is AWESOME!

We booked this hotel specifically to play the golf course which is unique and memorable. But it has several, mainly three pars, which are too hard for an average player and the rest of the holes are actually too easy. So nice location but so-so course. But the highlights of our visit were a fabulous meal (arugula salad and chicken parmesan) at Di Mare restaurant and Steven, one of the concierges, who miraculously retrieved my bathing suit from our previous hotel an hour and a half away. Facility ambiance is only marred by the property location which seems to block sunsets, at during the dry season when most of us come. Otherwise, this is an excellent upscale hotel. Free if grummpy WiFi.

Dear AnnandBob, Thank you for your feedback and for making it a special golf related trip. Sorry to know that you felt some of the course not challenging enough, and other holes tougher. Wonderful to know that our new dishes, like the Chicken Parm were a hit and that at the end, you can rate us - an excellent upscale hotel. Best regards, Pascal Forotti, General Manager.

We stayed here on a company trip, and from the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed. Our meals were fantastic, our group ate at a different restaurant each night. The first night we had a buffet dinner on the beach.
The pools are wonderful. There is so much to do right on the property, we walked the trails and saw many monkeys and beautiful birds. They were very helpful helping us choose excursions off sight as well. It was a great experience. We hope to return to Costa Rica soon!

My husband and I went to this hotel for our honeymoon in early January. We had a truly amazing experience, starting with the bottle of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in our room! All throughout our stay people were aware that we were in our honeymoon, and treated us incredibly well, treating us to champagne and asking us if we needed anything else (ALL the time). Breakfast was delicious, we tried absolutely everything, it was simply amazing!!
We completely recommend this hotel for any kind of trip: honeymoon, family, couples. The hotel has activities for everybody!
Thank you Four Seasons Papagayo for an unforgettable honeymoon!

This location is private, relaxing, and luxurious. We stayed for 5 nights over spring break, and I can honestly say they were some of the most relaxing nights of my life. The private beaches and the infinity pools are spectacular. Love the staff too.

The Four Seasons Papagayo is so fabulous that we are already planning our next trip! It was really top notch. It is on a peninsula amidst a jungle. We saw monkeys, iguanas, parrots, etc. everywhere, every day. The staff was wonderful. We sat on the beach and had waiters coming up regularly with cold towels, fresh fruit popsicles, coconut drinks..we jet skied with a pod of sting rays, went bird watching, had a cooking class, got a bamboo massage at the spa, ate divine food. It was heaven. I'm just so impressed by how Costa Rica has preserved its environment and prevented commercialism. It's really a jewel.
Tips: Order the 18th on the green cocktail at the bar for a real treat. It's like a mojito but with basil and cilantro. Get a bamboo massage at the spa. They knead your back with a bamboo stick as though they were kneading dough. Divine. When on the beach, ask for a coconut when you get thirsty. They'll put in a splash of rum if you want :) Bring ear plugs if you want to sleep in. The monkeys and birds can be a little loud.

All I can say is WOW, best Four Seasons I have visited. Great Atmosphere, waking up and seeing Howler Monkeys in the trees beside love bird parrots is a great experience. The team at the Four Seasons is very welcoming and hospitable. No request is too great.

The SPA is definitely a place to relax and decompress. The masseuse was great had a deep tissue massage and it was certainly one of the best.

Will definitely revisit.

Room Tip: Any room has a great view, higher floors allow you to see into the treetops.
