This is the type of vacation that you will never have anything bad to say about. All of the experiences they helped us to have will be remembered and cherished. I'd give them three thumbs up, but I only have two. Will go back for sure without a hesitation. Thanks Four Seasons!!!!

This was an incredible luxury vacation. From the time we arrived to the time we left the service was second to none. The ground are plush, well-appointed, and there are 2 beaches, 3 pools and 4 restaurants. An absolutely phenomenal experience thank you Four Seasons!

We just returned from a delightful week at the Four Seasons Costa Rica. We flew Jet Blue from JFK to Liberia and were promptly met at the airport by hotel personnel who transferred our luggage from the airport to the waiting car to our luxurious residence suite. Everyone we met was so courteous, accommodating, and friendly! The property is beautiful with beaches, pools, and lush landscaped grounds. The food was delicious with great care and attention to dietary requests. Don't miss the breakfast buffet! Service from all staff was exemplary! We are already planning next year's trip.

Last week we were again vacationing in Costa Rica at the Four Seasons. (Our 13th time). The facilities, staff, and dining were – as always - excellent. The resort is located on a beautiful peninsula, and is largely self-contained. It fronts the water on two sides. There are excellent restaurants (Characol- Steakhouse, DiMare – Italian, Papagayo – Costa Rican, as well as a wonderful bar/lounge named Ticos). There are wonderful exercise facilities, beach activities, pools, spa facilities, golf courses, the opportunity for Catamaran cruises as well as off campus activities such as Zip Lines and river boat rides - a perfect location for a wonderful vacation.

We were personally greeted by Ms. Camilla Ruckendorfer who not only warmly welcomed us, but also saw that we had a fabulous Canopy Suite with plunge pool, and checked in on us repeatedly during our stay. We could not have been better accommodated and felt truly welcomed – almost like a home away from home!

We are frequent guests at various Four Season properties and this time, even their typically high standards have been exceeded. Carlos Ugalde, our breakfast server was fabulous and is the “ambassador” of Papagayo. Henry at Tico’s Bar similarly serves in this capacity in the evening and Elvis also deserves high compliments. They made our stay truly personal and should be highly commended.

Oliver and Julio, who oversee the Pool and Cabana facilities, also were exceptional. Josue, our “Butler” at the Cabana was very helpful as well.

We plan to return soon, and similarly are glad to share our superior experience with others – since this resort has truly merited exemplary recognition.

This is best, most well trained staff I have experienced anywhere. They respond, anticipate and initiate. How many times have you been over promised and under served. The Four Seasons delivered and exceeded expectations. Call valet, my car was there in 2 minutes. Need an I-pod player, they delivered one to my room in 5 minutes. Staff knows how to ask and suggest, while being cheerful and deferential. Room was well appointed with rich dark woods, a marble bathroom, and screened porch that connects you to the lush tropical outdoor scenery and ocean waters. Yes, you hear the waves at night, which makes for great sleeping. Food was superior- sea bass steamed and wrapped in a bananna leaf was amazing. The golf course is top shelf and has the best views of the Papaguyo Penninsula. It's is also teaming with wildlife. Expect to see exotic birds and monkeys during your unforgettable 18 holes. The head golf pro Rod Cook is outstanding. A pros pro, he's a great player, teacher and representative of the Four Seasons. His personal touch was very appreciated. The 4 seaons offers great activities and excursions. That said, I rented a car at the airport and did my own day trips. I highly recommend the Papagayo Zip line, about 35 minutes from the Hotel and about 15 minutes past Witch's Rock zip line, the zip line that runs tours for the Hotel. I also recommend a day trip to Tamarindo and a 2 hour surf lesson. Tons of surf shops, you didn't need a rezzy in December. Take the highway getting there, or if you have a 4x4, take the "Congo tour route. The Congo route is mostly unpaved and unmarked, but your Garmin will show you the way. This route has pot holes, mud and even a few creek beds. Most of the staff laughed when I told them that's the route I took, but it was fun to do it one way. Can't wait to go back to the Four Seasons in 2013. A memorable experience with professional service beyond expectation. Now if they could just bottle it and bring it to the US ! Cheers !!

We stayed for 10 days over Thanksgiving. We were in Building 2 which was close to everything. The rooms were large, comfortable and nicely maintained. There were lots of families during Thanksgiving weekend so we appreciated being able to relax at the adult only pool which had a nice view of the bay.The highlight of this property is the friendly and attentive service you receive from every member of the staff. Linda Sobalbarro, Resort Assistant Manager was always around and checking to ensure that everything was going well. If there is one drawback to the resort it is the menu choices in the restaurants which also tended to be very expensive. However, when Rosman Marchena, the manager at Papagayo Restaurant sensed that my husband was having difficulty with the menu he offered to have the chef cook for him whatever he would like. We ate there several evenings and got to meet both the Chef and Assistant Chef who were both delighted to accommodate my husband's requests. We also enjoyed the restaurant at the beach club. It is always a pleasure to stay at a Four Seasons resort as you consistently receive outstanding and friendly service.
