This location is private, relaxing, and luxurious. We stayed for 5 nights over spring break, and I can honestly say they were some of the most relaxing nights of my life. The private beaches and the infinity pools are spectacular. Love the staff too.

The Four Seasons Papagayo is so fabulous that we are already planning our next trip! It was really top notch. It is on a peninsula amidst a jungle. We saw monkeys, iguanas, parrots, etc. everywhere, every day. The staff was wonderful. We sat on the beach and had waiters coming up regularly with cold towels, fresh fruit popsicles, coconut drinks..we jet skied with a pod of sting rays, went bird watching, had a cooking class, got a bamboo massage at the spa, ate divine food. It was heaven. I'm just so impressed by how Costa Rica has preserved its environment and prevented commercialism. It's really a jewel.
Tips: Order the 18th on the green cocktail at the bar for a real treat. It's like a mojito but with basil and cilantro. Get a bamboo massage at the spa. They knead your back with a bamboo stick as though they were kneading dough. Divine. When on the beach, ask for a coconut when you get thirsty. They'll put in a splash of rum if you want :) Bring ear plugs if you want to sleep in. The monkeys and birds can be a little loud.

All I can say is WOW, best Four Seasons I have visited. Great Atmosphere, waking up and seeing Howler Monkeys in the trees beside love bird parrots is a great experience. The team at the Four Seasons is very welcoming and hospitable. No request is too great.

The SPA is definitely a place to relax and decompress. The masseuse was great had a deep tissue massage and it was certainly one of the best.

Will definitely revisit.

Room Tip: Any room has a great view, higher floors allow you to see into the treetops.

Dear RedBird21623, Glad to know all went perfectly well and you enjoyed your stay. Being surrounded by nature, it is always amazing to see the animals close up – and getting pampered at the Spa is a great way to get into Pura Vida mode. Hasta pronto – Pascal Forotti, General Manager.

This is an amazing property and experience. The setting is magnificent on the Papagayo Peninsula. The abundant wildlife and great seashore are a unique blend. But what makes this a truly special place is the service which is off the charts. Every staff member is polite, friendly and could not be more helpful. We were there for 9 days and are flying back as I write this. I can not say enough nice things about this location. We have traveled all over the world and stayed at many luxury hotels. This one is right at the top. Congrats to them on their 10th anniversary. I am sure they will have many more.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a residence villa. What a view! And very spacious and comfortable. We are spoiled now.

In Jan/ Feb. 2013 we stayed with our two little daughters in this majestic place. Since than we have been dreaming of going back and my girls can't stop talking about Costa Rica. Service is beyond amazing, the grounds are just immaculate, the area is stunning and the rooms are clean and nicely done to blend with the whole surrounding of this beautiful secluded part of Papagayo.
I do think that since you are pretty much secluded from the rest of the world , going around and eating beyond 4S property is not that easy. Their high restaurant prices do not really much the quality of food, but everything else makes up for it, so I can overlook that.
My girls loved the kids club and I have to say this is a kids club like no other, kids do not want leave this place, and you do not feel guilty of leaving them there for longer period since they have blast.
We wanted to go back this year again, but their prices skyrocketed and I do not see us going back to 4S this February when we go back to CR again, unfortunately.
I almost do not want share this review and want keep this place just for myself, but this place is magical and anyone who can afford to splurge should experience this oasis.
Pura vida , as they say!
