Four Seasons Papagayo
Located on its own private peninsula the hotel incorporates; a Jack Nicholas designed 18 hole golf course, 2 beaches, 3 restaurants, 4 swimming pools – one for adults only, one for kids only and 2 for both adults and kids, a kids club where they actually entertain your children for the day rather than just having a baby sitter, comprehensive spa with 21 separate rooms for massages, the list goes on!
The all inclusive list of activities is also endless, ranging from snorkelling trips, to kayaking tours to cooking lessons. Scuba diving can also be arranged along with almost any other activity that you care to do.
They have 3 large blocks of standard rooms, which are pleasant enough and have all five star amenities, but as mentioned earlier, the pick of the rooms are the suites.
Each suite was designed with nature in mind and they have tried to create the rooms so that blend into the surroundings, e.g. mud coloured walls and armadillo shaped roofs! Inside they are spacious with a large sitting area with cable TV, king size beds, walk in cupboards along with bath and showers. The outside deck has sitting areas and lounge chairs overlooking the jungle and surrounding ocean and some come with their own private plunge pool.
