Stayed here with my GF for a couple of nights.
We had a great time and loved spending some adult time in the spa. The beaches are stunning and the sunsets are spectacular. She loved the food and activities and I loved the boat trip we took out to witches rock to surf. We caught two fish on the way back and the chef prepared them for us at dinner that evening.
As with all four seasons properties the staff is well trained and very helpful. Lots of kids on property to you have to be ready for that if you were hoping for an adult only experience.

Room Tip: ask for a quiet room and you might get upgraded to a suite (will be far away though)

Dear leewardtraveler, Costa Rica is an amazing destination for couples and families indeed. For our resort, the last ten years on the Peninsula have given us plenty of opportunities to think of activities and services that fit all of our guests. For your next stay, may I suggest the private cabanas at pool level or riding some of our bikes and enjoying a picnic along the way, as a fun couple activity. We are looking forward to your return visit, there are plenty more fish to catch. Pura Vida. Pascal Forotti General Manager.

My husband, 5 year old son, and I stayed at the Four Seasons for 5 nights, during the last leg of our Costa Rican vacation. It was the perfect way to relax. The beaches (2) are beautiful, the customer service is great, and the rooms are comfortable. Our son particularly loved the Kids club. They have scheduled events throughout the day (science experiments, bird watching, beach exploration, pool, movie time, s'mores night, etc). He requested to go multiple times a day because he enjoyed it so much. It was a great experience for us all!

Dear CMY26, Thank you for sharing your experience with all on Trip Advisor and we are excited to know that your son enjoyed the Kids for All Seasons and all of the activities our team offers all year long. A parent myself, there is nothing better than a kid’s smile. Our two permanent beaches are just perfect - Virador facing the ocean is perfect for sunbathing and getting pampered while admiring stunning sun sets (the bests on the Peninsula) and Playa Blanca where you can enjoy all of the water sports you may imagine, from scuba and snorkeling, to SUP and surfing. You can do it all at the Four Seasons Costa Rica. Looking forward to your return visit, until then Pura Vida. Pascal Forotti General Manager.

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Four Seasons for our honeymoon. We had a wonderful stay full of activities and fun. We stayed in a Canopy Suite and really enjoyed the room space and the patio. The resort has two great beaches, large pools and plenty of activities available to the guests.

Two of the restaurants were under construction during our stay. This wasn't too problematic, but it did limit the onsite food and beverage options. The construction was properly isolated and only on some occasions could you hear any real intrusive noise coming from the construction projects.

We stayed at two other other hotels during our 10-day stay in Costa Rica and we felt that this was the most family oriented. Although, it does appeal to all sorts of guests. The hotel has everything anyone would ever really need. On top of that, the location of the resort is wonderful.

The golf course is about 5-10 minutes away. There are lots of elevation changes, howler monkeys, ocean views, fun sight-lines and birdies to be made. The course played very fair and is probably worth the cost of the green fees. Try and play at 12:30 and you can get the afternoon rate and still finish 18 holes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the FourSeasons and will certainly return again soon.

This magnificent property was a treat from check-in to check-out. Staff is courteous and pleasant. Rooms are comfortable and plush. We had a large screen porch overlooking the trees and the beach. Wildlife entertains you while you relax on the porch. The sound of the pounding surf and the cries of monkeys, birds and all kinds of creatures lull you to sleep. The spa was lovely and the golf course was magical. The resort is about to undergo a renovation. We had a spectacular stay and hope to go there again.

Room Tip: Second floor and up in building 2 which is near pools and restaurants

Three generations, nine people ranging in age from 7 to 70 celebrating a beloved grandmother's milestone- that was our group. Some of us love animals; others love sports; still others love to relax by the pool. All nine of us had of the best trips of our lives at this resort. (And we are a group who has been all over Europe, to Hawaii multiple times and even Bali.) We stayed in villas which was ideal because we could order groceries ahead of time and have breakfasts and snacks in our villa plus do laundry and just relax on the screened in porch. We alternated days at the resort relaxing by the pool or doing water sports and excursions, including zip lining, a catamaran tour and a hike in the rainforest. A perfect mix of relaxation and seeing some of the area. Although August is the rainy season, we had great weather with only short, sporadic showers and loved that the resort was not crowded at all - no trouble getting prime chaises or dinner reservations. We saw wildlife right on the property which the kids lived. The rooms and public areas were lovely but are about to be renovated. What really made this trip so remarkable was the genuine warmth, humor and graciousness of the staff and indeed all the Costa Rican people we met, such as our tour guides for our excursions and our drivers. Their kindness towards our children was especially lovely. I want to return to Costa Rica, Papagayo and the Four Seasons again and again,

Dear Mom_to_Zoe, Wonderful to read your review and we are so happy that everybody enjoyed their stay with us. Those villas in the hill side are perfect for multi-generational family stays and with a full kitchen, a home away from home. I love how you are describing the resort so well, there is indeed so much (or little) to do while on the Peninsula and you are always surrounded by nature and wildlife. We are looking forward to seeing you back soon and enjoy the genuine warmth, humor and graciousness of our staff again – thank you for pointing out how our teams made your stay perfect! Until next time – Pura Vida. Pascal Forotti General Manager.

This review is based more for families with babies and toddlers. I have stayed at the resort 5 times for work and personal travel and love the location and resort. My only major criticism is that the Kids for all Seasons Pool is not really designed for parents who want to hang out with their small children and enjoy the sun. The location is less than desirable for families wanting to take in the Four Seasons feel of a pool vacation. As a parent with a baby or toddler, you sort of feel like you are being shoved in a corner. I will admit that if your children are 4 and over they will love the Kids for All Seasons room and the staff. I wouldn't suggest this location if you child is just starting to walk and isn't quit ready for a normal pool.

Dear SF_Traveler435, thank you for your review and so glad to know that your last five stays were great. I am sorry that you feel the private pool for our kids is not at a preferred location and that you feel "shoved in a corner". Rest assured that this is not at all how we see our families with babies and toddlers and our pool and beach teams are ready to set up those "pack-and-plays" wherever our guests would like them. We really try hard to be a resort that caters to all of our guests ... and tries hard to spol Looking forward to your sixth time on the Peninsula and this time we will be greeting you with a brand new resort, re-branded restaurants, updated and colorful rooms and suites. A new place to discover! Pura Vida, Pascal Forotti, General Manager

I just returned from my fourth trip to Costa Rica, my first at the Four Seasons. It was by far the most enjoyable Costa Rican trip yet. The resort's premises and staff are unparalleled both in Costa Rica and amongst other luxury resorts. The property's two beaches are gorgeous - perfect relaxation on one, including secluded, calm sunset swimming; fun-filled activities on the other - free stand up paddle boards, kayaks etc. The resort blends tastefully into the peninsula's natural surroundings and all opportunities to enjoy the wild and beautiful views are maximized. All staff members we encountered went out of their way to anticipate our needs in a friendly and non-intrusive manner - my husband and I went out for a hike on the property (be sure to check out the stairs around the peninsula) and staff noticed us, panting, from far away and proffered cold water on a platter mid-hike. Our villa was beautifully appointed and was so nice that we opted to stay in for an evening and enjoy the breeze on our screened in porch, complete with everything necessary for a BBQ. We will remember this trip for a long time for the thoughtful service, relaxation, fun activities and overall unbeatable scenery.
