“good but not quite excellent”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The hotel has a lot to do and that is absolutely great. We had a very good holiday and the beaches were fantastic and nice to have them private. Excellent pool and varied food. It really is though too much for the money paid and it does feel far too big and impersonal even too corporte to be charging rates of a very special hotel. crowd a bit older too... I like it but I am not sure i can really recommend this to a friend although i cannot really say there is anything really wrong about it either. Search a bit more before deciding to spend your money here

My wife and I have stayed at this 4 Seasons 6 times over the past 4 years and it has never disappointed us. Two very different private hotel beaches, and incredible 18 hole Arnold Palmer design golf course, several excellent restaurants and Impeccable service. When you drive up to the veranda hotel entrance, the bellhops open your door calling you by your name. That is always a nice way to start. They even changed my flat tire on one occasion. Throughout our stays, the staff has always addressed us by our names whether it is poolside or at the morning breakfast with its' made to order omelets and fresh variety of juices. We have always upgraded our room to the upper floors. The rooms are spacious and outside screened patio is extremely comfortable to relax on while sipping a good cup of wine while looking out over the Pacific. We have traveled all over the globe and continue to return this one specific hotel. A warning, the hotel is expensive and the add-ons add up quickly- but if you want to relax in Costa Rican splendor while being pampered we do not believe there is a finer hotel anywhere.

Room Tip: Upgrade or book the upper floors.

We love the Four Seasons Papagayo!!

Things we loved;

1- Breakfast Buffet was fabulous!
2- My wife (pregnant) got a message and she said it was heavenly.
3- the room ( we got upgraded) was perfect; clean, elegant, grand bathroom, super comfy bed, huge screened porch overlooking ocean...)
4- Food was so good (pricey)
5- two beaches!!! We say baby sea turtles
6- free kayaking & paddle boarding
7- service by the pool was so nice (constantly bringing by cold water, treats etc) as it always is at any Four Seasons!

Needless to say, we were once again so glad we chose the Four Seasons!! It is worth it!

Loved it all. Friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful food. Incredible views from its unspoilt location. Isolated on a private peninsula - this is remote but we didn't need to leave for the 5 days. Plenty to do, yet nothing to rush for! Cooking lessons, kayaking, 2 beaches, pools, restaurants, golf etc

This is the ultimate in vacationing. The views, the beaches, the staff, the food, the furniture, the cleanliness, etc. were all stellar. We did not want to leave. You will spend lots of money for this but you have to stay here at least once.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor of Playa Blanca 2. Stay there. Rooms look out to beach/ocean, not the pool...

Top notch resort in every way; from gracious staff to accommodations! You want for NOTHING! I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!!! Yes, it is a bit pricey, but seemed worth it! I received a massage from the spa and it was probably the best massage I have ever had. The pool staff goes above and beyond! All the staff were friendly and hospitable! The entire facility was well maintained and exceptionally clean. We have never been to Costa Rica, but would return there if we chose to come back.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect! I don't think they have bad rooms to my knowledge!!

This place was great but very expensive. We like nice places and good food and we could have had almost 3 vacations in Mexico for what the 8 nights here cost. We are glad we went but probably won’t go back because of the price. The other thing is that I think because of the price its mainly older people that just want to do nothing. We like a little action and music by the pool. You are not going to get that here.
