My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for our Anniversary. We picked the Four Seasons as we are huge fans of the Hotel chain, and always have a great experience. Unfortunately, our expectations were a bit disappointed with this trip.
Upon checking in, we were upgraded to a suite. However, we soon discovered that there was construction right next door, which was definitely distracting to our relaxing experience. We called and complained, whereupon they moved us to another room. The new room was nice, clean, and a bit closer to the pool/beach. With the Suites, you have to take a golf cart, which can be an annoying wait when you want to get somewhere and the employees are busy elsewhere. We also ended up having to hide bottles of water so that the maid would bring us more, as they only left us 2 a day. You could buy a refillable bottle if you wanted, which, at the room price, should be complimentary. The shower and lights also had to be fixed by maintenance when we were there.
The other disappointment was the food. There are 4 restaurants on site. When we were there, there were usually only 1-2 open: the bar area (with limited menu) and one other one. This was due to the large groups that were there, I think. The Food Service was busy preparing food for big dinners on the beach and events in the hotel. So the actual guests were put on the back burner. So, the food choices got old. The prices are expensive for the quality of food you get as well.
Lastly, there was a few groups of college-age folks that were playing their radios and smoking at the pool. Not your ideal scenario when you want to sit and relax.
Overall, we were disappointed in the experience. The hotel would be fine for a couple/few days to spend on the beach after some adventures in the rainforest. But not for longer than that.
