Ideally located on the neck of a stunning peninsula with pristine white-sand beaches on either side, the Four Seasons is hands-down the premier luxury resort hotel in Costa Rica, if not in all of Central America. Its unique look, designed by industrious Ronald Zurcher, features roof lines and building shapes meant to evoke turtles and armadillos. Rooms are large, plush, and graced with colorful throw pillows and rattan and fine wood furnishings. Suites and villas are dazzling, with multiple rooms, full kitchens, and private infinity pools. Four restaurants offer up the top-notch dining experience you’d expect from the Four Seasons—and the hotel’s famed service remains peerless. The Arnold Palmer–designed golf course has ocean views from the tees, greens, and fairways of 15 of its 18 holes. After a closing for several months in 2017 for renovations, the resort is better than ever.
