Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo

Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo Rating: 5.0 Pearls

Easily among the most luxurious resorts in Central America, The Four Seasons is as close to perfection as it gets. With two beautiful beaches, ocean views from each one of the sumptuous rooms -- decorated in materials including wood, bamboo, and stone -- and an 18-hole golf course, the resort makes it possible for guests to spend their whole vacation on-site. Those who do choose to explore beyond Peninsula Papagayo should note that the roads in Guanacaste are in poor condition.

JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa

JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The JW Marriott is one of the top luxury properties in Guanacaste, with beautiful, hacienda-style architecture (think: lots of wood and stone, romantic white hammocks, wrought iron light fixtures and indigenous art). The stunning free-form pool is the largest in Central America, and the tranquil spa is world-class. The only main downside is the extremely rough, hour-long drive from Liberia Airport.

Gaia Hotel And Reserve

Gaia Hotel And Reserve Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Guests will feel truly pampered at this adults-only, 29-room luxury hotel. Tucked into the hillside of a 14-acre nature reserve, Gaia feels appropriately exclusive and private, and has the attentive, personalized service to match. Rooms are spacious and airy; the great views are never-ending; and the freebies abound: breakfast, Wi-Fi, a mini spa treatment (to name a few). Keep your eyes peeled for iguanas, sloths, and the like.

Lapa Rios Ecolodge & Wildlife Reserve

Lapa Rios Ecolodge & Wildlife Reserve Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Lapa Rios, located in the remote coastal rainforests of the Osa Peninsula, is Costa Rica’s original luxury eco lodge. This is the opposite of a Cancun-style beach resort -- guests come to the upscale Lapa Rios to enjoy the spectacular surroundings, learn about sustainable tourism, and re-connect with nature. The 16-bungalow lodge sits amid 1,000 acres of rainforest filled with wildlife, but it's far from a no-frills jungle camp. There are many comforts here, including a pool overlooking the ocean, a splendid restaurant serving sumptuous cuisine, and rustic-luxe rooms with private decks. This is a place to get in touch with nature without roughing it.

Hotel Parador Resort and Spa

Hotel Parador Resort and Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

A sprawling resort in an area of mostly boutique-sized hotels, Hotel Parador is a relaxed, family-friendly property perched high above the ocean. It's not particularly luxurious or upscale (though we love the newer rooms in the Parador Suites building), but it keeps guests happy with several restaurants and bars, three pools, a tennis court, a relaxing spa, and great ocean views.

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Marriott Los Suenos is one of Costa Rica's few large-scale resorts, with 201 comfortable rooms, an 18-hole golf course, a big pool complex, full-service spa, six restaurants, and beautiful Spanish colonial architecture. But the on-site beach is extremely rocky, so you may want to take a taxi to one of the other nearby beaches instead.

Reserva Conchal

Reserva Conchal Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Reserva Conchal is not so much a hotel, but rather a series of four individual condo villages, each with several buildings clustered around a communal pool. Drive several minutes to the guests-only Beach Club and it feels more like a resort, with a great-looking pool that has two bars, an open-air restaurant, and a lovely spa and fitness center. Nearby is the property's 9-hole golf course. The large, modern condos are ideal for families or couples who want to travel in groups -- though there's not a ton for children to do.

Los Altos Beach Resort

Los Altos Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Los Altos' condos -- all 2,300-square-foot, three-bedroom luxury units -- are probably the most luxurious accommodations in Manuel Antonio. The hotel is ultra-convenient -- the elevator opens up right into your condo -- but the grounds aren't as lush or wildlife-rich as at sprawling, less convenient properties like Arenas del Mar and Buena Vista Luxury Villas. And the on-site beach is rocky, so you'll probably want to head elsewhere for some sand time.

Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort & Spa

Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort & Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The 202-room Hilton Papagayo is an excellent upscale all-inclusive option in Guanacaste, with a decent beach and comfortable (if generic) rooms. It's quieter and classier than your typical all-inclusive, with brand-name liquor, no annoying bracelets, solid (it not exceptional) food, and live music or karaoke rather than embarrassing staff performances. But you'll need to take one of the free hotel shuttles to get around the sprawling property.

Hotel Punta Islita

Hotel Punta Islita Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This ultra-remote, rustic luxe hideaway is worth the bumpy, two-and-a-half hour drive from Liberia Airport. The rooms aren't as impressive as those at larger luxury resorts in the region, but the unparalleled views, stunning infinity pool, and ruggedly beautiful (if rocky) beach more than compensate. Plus, this is a hotel with a heart: Punta Islita is environmentally friendly, and gives back to the local community.
