First Wedding Anniversary Trip!!

5 out of 5
by
Posted Apr 25, 2016
Pros: EVERYTHING!!
Cons: Can't really think of anything.
Location: Witches Rock Canopy Tour. Coco Beach is 1 hour away near Liberia but this is where the local restaurants and salsa clubs are located.
My husband and I were married at the Four Seasons at Disney in Orlando April 2015 so we had high expectations for the Four Seasons Costa Rica and we were not disappointed!! I mentioned on our reservation through Expedia that this was our first wedding anniversary trip and we received champagne and chocolate covered roses in our room upon arrival, champagne at lunch when our waiter just so happened to ask if we were there for a special occasion and champagne at dinner later that night as it was our actual wedding anniversary date. The food in all restaurants that we tried was excellente and delicioso!! Service was impeccable and it was the same feeling like we had in Orlando with the reply being " it was my pleasure" from anyone that assisted us. I was able to work on my Spanish while there. The scenery is beautiful and sitting on the high peninsula provided extraordinary views throughout our stay. Paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkeling are all available. There are plenty of free activities included. We tried to do the kayak at sunset but it got to be too windy and the waves were too high so we could not go as it was not safe. We signed up for others but found that we were enjoying relaxing too much to even get up. We also did the canopy tour which was frightening at the beginning but once I calmed down I really enjoyed the views of the ocean and forrest. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and really hated to leave.

Truly lives up to reputation

Posted Feb 15, 2016
Pros: Great service......
Cons: Nothing really
Location: The resort is somewhat isolated, so need a car or day trip to get off property
Spent a week there, in one of the standard rooms, which was quite nice. Most overlook beaches. I appreciated that the resort is not overly crowded, and is probably planned that way. Beautiful beaches, excellent food. I'm a golfer, and the course was excellent. Everything at resort is pricey...

Best in Class!

by from Lake Mary, FL
Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Its location, the staff, and its amenities.
Cons: Can't think of a thing to improve from my experience.
Location: Numerous tours, including the Palo Verde National Park, Zip-Lining, Fishing - you name it!
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica is definitely Best in Class! From the hotel location and amenities, to its wonderful staff. Surrounded by beauty, all around. I had one of the most relaxing vacations ever, and much is due to what was offered at this hotel. No stress, extremely comfortable room surrounded by the sounds of nature and the waves meeting the sand. I'm definitely going back...and soon!

The overall look of the hotel is outstanding. The pool and surrounding landscaped areas are magnificent. Our room was excellent and the view was stunning. The ladies that took care of our room did an excellent job, they were polite charming and made sure we were satisfied in every way excellent room service . were awesome in every way, good service, very helpful; they went the extra mile to make sure we were pleased. The food at the restaurant was excellent. All together an unforgettable experience. The hotel staff was very professional, customer oriented, very polite it seemed every person knew our names and treated us with respect and admiration. We definitely couldn't choose a better place to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary we were given complementary happy birthday desert and cocktail with a lovely note in our room. Our room was excellent and the view was stunning, everything in the room was clean and in good working order great coffee, all the amenities were outstanding, the bed was confortable, the bathroom had plenty of room and very clean. from:the Urgile's Family you made every day very special I wish we can stay longer but we are leaving tomorrow we didn't want to leave without saying Thank you!

beautiful hotel on the peninsula

5 out of 5
by from from Irvine ,CA
Posted Oct 4, 2014
The location of the hotel is wonderful having both sides of the peninsula to enjoy. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff was wonderful. They were remodeling a building close to where our room was scheduled to be so upon arrival they upgraded us to a suite and put us on the other side of the hotel so as to not be bothered by construction. Was very impressed with how accommodating everyone was. The KFAS was great for our daughter, they interacted well with her and she always looked forward to returning the following day.

Heaven in Costa Rica

Difficult to describe in words the beauty of this resort. Besides a great location, each guest is treated like royalty. I have visited many ritzcarlton properties which are beautiful but the service here is extraordinary. Anything you ask for is granted like a magic genie. If you can afford it, gooooooo.

Pros: Everything but location and service stand out
Location: Explore the resort and take the concierge's advice depending on your stay time and energy level
It is a great place for couples and families. With two beaches and a golf course around the property, you have a lot to do.
