Services provided by the Hotel

When booking with Four Seasons transportation, guests are met upon arrival at Liberia International Airport as they exit Customs. Guests are greeted by a Four Seasons representative and then introduced to their driver. Once at the Resort, a refreshing welcome beverage and a chilled towel await with the Receptionist.

The Resort is positioned on Costa Rica's northwest Pacific coast within the province of Guanacaste. Though it's the country's second-largest province by area, Guanacaste is the least populated, offering a calm, peaceful ambience. The pampas or prairie landscape is an unusual mix of grassy savannahs, immense cattle ranches and tropical dry forest, backed by volcanic mountain ranges.

For a hassle-free check-in experience, guests can book our private transfer from the airport via private transportation or an afternoon shuttle service. The transfer time from Daniel Quiros International
