About The Hotel

Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is the only Forbes five star rated resort in Central and South America and sets the bar high for a luxurious resort experience combined with eco-adventure, fine dining and family facilities. Surrounded by sandy beaches, a tropical dry forest, an indigenous spa and a championship golf course, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica offers families unique experiences from exhilarating zip-line tours of the jungle canopy to tranquil days on the beach to stargazing through a powerful GPS-guided telescope while savouring a specially prepared menu of cocktails and culinary treats infused with real meteorite dust! For kids there is an outdoor playground complimented by the signature Kids for All Seasons programme, a teens centre and lots of sporting and adventure activities.

Ticos, the 1,000-square-metre freshwater main pool, is joined on either side by two smaller pools, with a nearby whirlpool grotto. Guests can enjoy an aquatic workout or relax in a comfortable chaise longue, as Four Seasons attendants bring cocktails and complimentary fruit, water and other treats. The lively Blanca pool overlooks Playa Blanca (the activities beach) and at the Kids For All Seasons kids club, children enjoy their own 50-square-metre kids swimming pool with a shallow beach-style entrance, along with kid-size chaises longues in the shade nearby. A variety of pool toys and frozen treats is available at the toddler pool.

Activities include beach football, volleyball, bird watching, cooking classes, horseback riding, water sports and golf atop one of Peninsula Papagayo’s highest plateaus, overlooking the jewelled waters of Bahía de Culebra. The spa offers holistic treatments inspired by nature and families can enjoy The Trail of Giants, a guided tour through the tropical dry forest home to endangered birds, monkeys, iguanas, butterflies and over 25 species of giant tree, or hiking through the peninsula.

Accommodation is divided into rooms, suites and private residences. The entry level open-plan Terraza rooms sleep up to two adults and two children and are situated on the ground floor with a private terrace with views of the native tropical landscape and dry forest. For families who need more space the one bedroom suites have one double bedroom plus a separate living room with sofa bed and are built into the hillside to afford lovely views, some with plunge pool. There are also three bedroom suites and luxurious private residences with heated infinity pools for extended families, sleeping up to 14 people.

Specialising in Latin and Italian cuisine, the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo uses fresh local Costa Rican ingredients to create innovative menus. Set overlooking the acclaimed Arnold Palmer designed golf course, Caracol restaurant is the Resort’s premier American Steakhouse.  Cena Sociale specialises in modern Mediterranean cuisine inspired by the Amalfi Coast of Italy and kids will love CR Burger Shack serving Costa Rican-style burgers, including mahi mahi burgers, as well as other sandwich selections, french fries, watermelon pinchos and shakes in a relaxed outdoor setting.

As part of the Kids for All Seasons kids club program, children are immersed in the culture of Costa Rica with endless opportunities to learn about their surrounding environment. Upon arrival, they’re presented with a welcome amenity and an invitation to join Tiquito, the Papagayo mascot, at the Children’s Centre. The program offers a weekly schedule of events, featuring activities and arts and crafts using local materials. Supervised explorations take children in search of local insects, reptiles and plants and other activities include a hermit crab hunt, treasure collecting on the beach, sand castle building, birdwatching, and soccer. After a long day, kids can relax by their own private pool, or enjoy nightly story time from 6pm to 8pm. For indoor fun, a wide selection of movies, games and puzzles is available. The center also provides a recreation room complete with a ping pong table, computers with high-speed Internet access and an entertainment system.

Teens can enjoy the Tuanis Teen Center, located just steps from the basketball court with a games room and Concierge who can organise outdoor adventure excursions including zip-lining through lush treetops, white-water rafting, jungle adventures, snorkeling explorations, sunset kayaking and volcano hikes. Weekly fitness classes include mat Pilates, kickboxing, yoga and stretching.
