Fodor's Review

By far one of the most luxurious hotels in Costa Rica, the Four Seasons is extremely secluded on a narrow isthmus, meaning you'll have an ocean view from just about anywhere on the property. Service, provided by a cream-of-the-crop, bilingual staff, is faultless. Expect to find your bags unpacked by housekeeping and to be addressed by name by the valet welcoming you "home." The decor is tasteful and artsy. Huge rooms have king-size beds, marble baths, and screened-in living-room terraces. The breezy 18-hole Arnold Palmer signature golf course has breathtaking views—and prices ($230 per round). The state-of-the-art spa is impressive but a little sterile. Dishes created at the dinner-only Di Mare restaurant are worth their wildly expensive price tags, but the rest of the hotel's food can be disappointing considering the sky-high prices. Hiking, tennis, kayaking, surfing, and stand-up paddleboarding are a few activities that will help you justify that Swedish massage.
