Amazing place and amazing people. It was just enjoyable, relaxing, and easy to get around and easy to ask what we needed. We brought 2 young kids and they enjoyed every minute! Probably top hotel and top places to go. The sand was soft and the pools were so fun! Only complaint was having to leave and go back home....

This is a truly amazing setting where you feel like you are in the middle of the jungle, yet with all the comforts a hotel can offer. The beaches on each side of the peninsula, and the pool area in between, is truly amazing. I particularly appreciated the Pacific Ocean side, which really makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. There was also excellent service, so you could stay the whole day at the beach and be very comfortable. There’s a kids club for kids from 4 to 12, and you can take younger kids there to play if you stay there with them. The kids are very well looked after, and have an interesting schedule where they do different arts and crafts, learn Spanish, dance, go to the beach and use the special kids club pool. There are three restaurants on-site, as well as a couple of options outside the premises, and a possibility to order room service. I would particularly recommend the Nemare, where we had some very good beef options as well as excellent service. The on-site restaurants are also good, though less exceptional than some of the other Four seasons hotels, including in the choice of wines. I recommend the fresh seafood options, particularly the ceviches, and the vegetable options. Note that while you get a real feel for Costa Rican nature here, you’ll need to venture outside the peninsula to get a real feel for the country. Most guests are American, and while the staff is great at telling you about there country, I’d recommend experiencing it for yourself.

My husband and I stayed at the Four Seasons after a week long trek through Costa Rica (San Jose, Limon, La Fortuna, and Monteverde) for our honeymoon. We were so happy to end our trip at the Four Seasons. It sits on this small peninsula about 40 minutes from Liberia Airport and the drive in to the resort was just breathtaking. It's quite a lot of money for those who are used to backpacking and hostels, but definitely worth it. The staff were so attentive and ready to assist with any needs/recommendations. Every staff, from front desk to pool side managers were so accommodating. Our hostess and waiters were amazing and you really feel taken care of. When we arrived, we were handed two coconuts and had the option to add rum (yum!). We were upgraded to a suite and we were so surprised to see champagne and a beautiful chocolate arrangement in our room! They did such a great job at making us feel special. The Canopy Suite was spacious and gorgeous, with a beautiful view of trees and a sliver of the ocean. Activities: Every day, the resort offers free activities and some you need to pay extra for. We were honestly so exhausted from the many hikes we accomplished and skipped all of these activities (yoga classes, coffee and rum tasting, juice making, etc.). What we did the two days was hang out at the beaches. There were many beach activities you could do (kayaking, snorkeling, and paddle boarding) - you just need to sign a waiver and the equipment is provided. The resort is definitely family and kid friendly, with two resort pools (+ 1 for adults only). There were 3 amazing restaurants - my husband and I ate at Bahia Grill for the most part - their fish tacos are phenomenal. Overall, I don't think my adventurous personality could sit at this resort for more than two days, but it was well worth the money to relax and be pampered at the end of our strenuous week.

My daughter and I went surfing with Hannah (Surfx) today at Iguanita. It was absolutely amazing. Best day ever. Hannah was a wonderful instructor with lots of patience and kindness. Looking forward to next time! Would highly recommend for any age and level of experience (we’re beginners).

This is a beautiful resort with the amenities you would expect from a Four Seasons property. It occupies an entire peninsula so plan on eating all meals there. But the options are excellent. Specifically, lots of smoothie flavors, great burgers and sushi and more. Lots of vegan dishes! I particularly loved the empanadas at Nemare (best ever!) and the coconut beans and rice at Bahia. We had a 2 bedroom suite/villa which was very nice but not quite what I would expect at the price point. The bedroom was beautiful but the common areas a little sparse. I was disappointed that they did not offer a free morning yoga class either on the beach or at the fitness center as I had come accustomed to that being standard in other places we stayed. Spoiled? Perhaps, but I felt like a $25 charge was a little cheap considering how expensive the room was. Still, we had a lovely time. I recommend the Almaco dive boat for SCUBA- Owen was great! Also, shout out to Carlos from Swiss Travel (the partner vendor) for jet skis- his service was exceptional! Lastly, if you have the right timing of the moon and a clear night- definitely do the Bioluminescence peddle- was really cool!

We spent 2 nights at a moderately priced property in La Fortuna before checking in to this hotel for our two night stay in the Papagayo area. This resort was absolutely a splurge but it kept coming up over and over again as I was researching our trip to Costa Rica as a favorite property. We were also celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and I felt that justified the splurge. It lived up to the hype. The beaches were amazing, everything we ordered was exceptional, and the service was top notch. Love the included activities which also helped justify the price tag. We very much enjoyed kayaking off Playa Blanca and the Trail of the Giants. Tips: Download the app because the chat feature makes it so simple to make reservations for restaurants and activities. The Mas de Ojo was a favorite cocktail. Try one…or three. Complimentary coffee in the hotel lobby until 9 a.m. but definitely try the traditional café correado at least once. Thanks for the memories!

Stayed there in late July 2022 as a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 teenage daughters), and the unanimous family response was this was the nicest hotel or resort, and one of the best overall vacation experiences, we've ever had. I have stayed in several Four Seasons, and Ritz Carlton's and similar 5-star level hotels, and Four Seasons Papagayo is easily my favorite. What stood out was the service - every single interaction we had with staff was incredible and above and beyond helpful, friendly, personal, with a good bit of humor mixed in. From the beach staff to the concierge to the waiters to the incredibly hard working bellmen, just a remarkable group. The grounds are amazing - the main hotel area is on the neck of the peninsula so you literally have a nice, shady beach on either side of several gorgeous pools. And just staying there is a nature experience - we encountered all sorts of wildlife, monkees, crabs, etc just wandering around. And the rooms are, well, Four Seasons quality. 10/10 can't recommend enough. For an adventure, try Witch's Rock Canopy Tour for a great, family friendly zipline experience. Just 20 min from the hotel, and incredibly friendly staff as well.

Stayed with our family of 5 (2 parents, a teen, and 11-yo twins) for 10 days in late June / early July 2022. Everything was just fantastic. When we arrived to check in we were invited to sit on comfortable sofas in the open-air lobby and offered fresh coconut water - making the usual tedious check-in process an actual pleasure. Little "extra" touches like this were typical - for instance, the pool kiosks not only stocked towels, ice water, Sunbum sunscreen, and after-sun balm but also included makeup mirrors for applying sunscreen to your face and sinks to wash it off your hands. Necessary? Of course not; but pleasant little luxuries. The rooms were comfortable and well-appointed with spacious screened-in balconies and - a true hotel rarity - fully stocked laundry rooms on every floor. Housekeeping 2x/day. We ate at all 5 restaurants (including the tap house) during our stay, as well as ordering from the pool/beach menu, and everything was delicious (though our go-to ended up being the sushi & poke bowls at Anejo). Loved the tiny Monkey Bar overlooking Playa Virador - perfect spot to watch the sunset. Service was just phenomenal throughout - after a very short time the staff would greet us by name and seemed genuinely happy and eager to help. The hotel is extremely family friendly. There's a small adult-only pool but most facilities including restaurants are open to all ages, and children are absolutely catered to: there are kids' menus at every restaurant (including Nemare steakhouse) as well as a teen center (with video games, air hockey, etc) and a kids' club with playground and activities for younger kids. We had one full day of rain when a tropical storm swept through, and the hotel organized all kinds of fun indoor activities for both kids and adults, coffee, rum and juice tastings; laser tag; a series of family-friendly movies with popcorn; etc. The natural location is just stunning: at the far end of the peninsula between two equally gorgeous beaches and views of the forested hills. Plenty of wildlife at the resort too - in addition to the beautiful birds and butterflies we regularly saw coatis, iguanas, and geckos and occasionally heard and saw howler monkeys. Also saw eagle rays, sea turtles and dolphins in the bay. Note that the resort is quite isolated - the whole peninsula is devoted to resorts and nature reserves, so to get to a "real" town you need to get across the bay by boat or jet ski, or drive close to an hour. In general: wonderful if you just want to relax in a comfortable resort atmosphere or use it as base for excursions (and the excursions are well worth it) - just know it takes a while to get anywhere. For some, that's perfect. Will certainly return.
