“Four Seasons Business/Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife and i attended a business meeting at the Four Seasons in October 2012. The resort is in very nice shape and the staff is extremely professional. As the resort is on a peninsula, it shares beaches to a bay and the Pacific Ocean. Within a five minute walk you can be on each of the shores.
If you are a beach lover, the beaches are not the cleanest as in most of the Caribbean. However, thre views are beautiful.
As indicated, we were there for business and the quality of the facility for meetings was fantastic. Breakout areas were available and catering was impeccable.
One down side to the resort that i see is the cost. My wife and I have travelled extensively throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. Comparitively, the Four Seasons was 2x the cost of our other travels. For example, our breakfast buffet one morning was $90 including tip.
All in all though, this is a quality resort and well worth the trip.

I have never had a bad stay at a Four Seasons Resort and this property certaintly did not disappoint me. However, the only thing that Trip Advisor readers need to know, is that the resort is located very far out, far away from everything. Don't worry, the resort has plenty to do, so you will not be disappointed. If you play golf, the course is beautiful and less expensive in the afternoon. The staff is stellar and you can even rent a car if you choose to drive to the nearest town for a change of scenery!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the ocean

I came yesterday from the Four Seasons Hotel in Liberia, Costa Rica. Everything was top notch- from the food, to the room's and Suites.

The attention to detail at The Four Seasons is truly impressive. The rooms are luxurious, beautiful, comfortable and sensible. The balconies are screened as to prevent the local critters from disrupting your visit.

The bathrooms are large sizes. I've seen and the views from every point of the hotel are simply spectacular. The staff are so attentive, knowledgeable, and professional.

You will not have to wait for a glass of water to be refilled or for someone to greet you and attend to your needs. The food is all excellent level and you can order off of any menu wherever you are in the resort. You will feel like royalty at Four Seasons Papagayo

Room Tip: The lowest rates are the terraza rooms located ground level but a great location.

We spent 5 nights here with my 12 yr old son and husband. It is a beautiful destination resort. They have a wonderful teen center with numerous activities, gaming and sports equipment. The rooms are wonderful, even the basic ones. They have a screened in huge sun room attached to the bedroom. There are 3 pools and hot tubs with excellent service. There are two pristine beaches. One set for swimming only and the other for activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and more. Numerous excellent restaurants but they can be expensive. The list of activities available on a daily basis appeal to all interests. They had a mixology class which we loved. Then there is dance lessons, spanish and cooking lessons for example.

Room Tip: Look for special offers. We got the stay 4 nights and get the 5th night free.

The trip overall was a 10 / 10. Everything about the resort is exactly what you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The only (small) issue we had was our room when we checked in. We had booked a 1 bedroom suite with a plunge pool. We were expecting a room with a view akin to those pictured on the Four Season's website. Instead we were given a room with a view of 3 feet of grass and some foliage -basically a green wall (my apt in NYC has a nicer view). The room itself was very nicely appointed but by being somewhat lacking in light and views lacked the majesty that was sold and we were expecting.

To their credit- upon calling the font desk and asking for a room with a better view they upgraded us to a 3 bedroom suite (no charge) with an offensively beautiful view. The difference it made falling asleep and waking up in a house that is quite literally floating above the trees viewing out over the water cannot be expressed in words. We spent a good amount of time just hanging in our suite's pool overlooking the world (very romantic).

Room Tip: It seems that the (one bedroom) suites are built as small houses with two floors -one suite up and o...

Dear cdanzig, given the fact that the Four Seasons is located in a preserved area, we have some restrictions as far as deforestation. That is why we find ourselves limited to cut or trim some parts of our woods. However, I am truly pleased that you got a room with a view of your liking. I totally agree with you when you say that about the view, they are just simply breath taking!
Thank you for your review, Pascal, General Manager.

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights at the Four Seasons in Guanacaste with our family...and we
haven't stop talking about it. The views will constantly amaze you, wonderful white sand beaches
and pools everywhere. The rooms were sumptious with a huge enclosed porch. We were so taken by the
signature martini glasses (local) we bought them. The Spa is a true experience. Choose a season for the unique climate, we went at the end of the rainy season (October) and experienced a relaxing shower each evening about 4-5pm. Rain never interfered with our activities which included a jungle tour, zip lining and water rafting, we pre-booked all our tours through Issys Tours because of all the great reviews they had. They so deserve them! Overall, we can't say enough good things about this resort!! It was perfect in every aspect and we are already planning our next trip!

I haven't done any reviews on here before. I find them useful, so I decided to return the favor.

My husband and I stayed at the Four Seasons Costa Rica last month {this past September} and had SUCH an amazing time. I cannot GUSH enough about how amazing everything was!

We travel often, but this was our first trip to Costa Rica and it could not have been more perfect. We went during rainy season and everything was green, lush, and beautiful. We LUCKED out as it barely rained at all - we had stunning weather!

We arranged round trip airport transportation through the hotel, and were of course greeted with Four Seasons amazingness from the moment we arrived. Loved the WiFi in the car! They really thought of everything.

We split our stay between a one bedroom canopy suite with plunge pool and a regular room. We were upgraded from a first floor regular room to third floor regular room, which provided an amazing view. The regular room was great, with an amazing outdoor living space, but you will spoil yourself with a canopy suite. It was by far the best room we've ever stayed in and WORTH EVERY PENNY! It was very private, offered stunning views, and the plunge pool itself was to die for.

My only complaint at ALL, which really isn't anything, was, like others say, you DO pay for the internet in your room. I don't necessarily have a problem with, but it was SLOW. Like I said, I don't mind paying for it, but at least be a somewhat normal speed.

Anyway...

The beach and pool facilities were great, as was the staff that serviced them.

The staff in general was BEYOND accommodating, helpful, friendly, and just overall wonderful. They seriously went out of their way at every opportunity to go above and beyond.

Everyone says the hotel is a little "out there" location wise, which we LOVED! It was so secluded it made our excursions even more special, and then our time at the resort more peaceful. We booked two excursions through the hotel and they were PHENOMENAL. WORTH EVERY PENNY! We especially loved our trip to Arenal - it was fabulous. It was just us and a private guide which allowed us to do SO much. Our guide was fantastic. The company the Four Seasons goes through for their tours does such an amazing job.

The breakfast at Papagayo was amazing. We didn't find any of the food prices outrageous. They were exactly what you would expect. We particularly enjoyed private dining in our villa/room, and by the pool. The pools were so nice we never wanted to leave and ended up just ordering food to our loungers. Definitely be sure to try the crispy chicken caesar wrap! We even loved the fries!

The spa was stunning and the golf course was terrific. We even enjoyed a round of mini-golf! We had such a blast. The Trail of the Giants tour around the golf course is not to be missed either.

This resort did not disappoint! If you want an amazing vacation book here!
