We took a last minute trip to Costa Rica and turned to the Four Seasons because of their top rated service and also because the resort is much closer to the airport than the resorts located in the rain forest area of the country. This is definitely a plus considering our trip was only for 4 days and we didn't spend much time getting to and from the airport.
We went in March which is the dry season, the brown vegetation isn't the nicest to look at but the scenery and views are still amazing to look at. We stayed in a room up the hill with a private plunge pool, which was great to use to cool down as the heat is intense during dry season. Seeing the unique wildlife just footsteps from your room is amazing. It's not everyday you have monkeys swinging from trees outside your room. We had room service outside on our patio a few times and you'll get a few animal visitors hoping to grab some leftovers, it is startling at first, but they aren't aggressive.
Restaurants are decent, nothing to write home about. Definitely use lots of the hand sanitizer they provide as there was the infamous stomach bug going around, we didn't get it though. The two beaches are nice, but don't expect Caribbean crystal clear water. We didn't use the pools, as we mainly stuck to our own plunge pool to cool off.
There aren't many activities around the resort that are within close driving distance, most of them require several hours on the road. We did do the zip lining that was close by and that was enjoyable.
Despite being a bit overpriced in our opinion, we enjoyed our visit and are looking forward to exploring what the rest of the country has to offer on our next visit.
