There is a lot of positives about the resort. The rooms are large and well appointed (I realize that they are now going through a major renovation). The pools are nice and the beachfront access to two beaches is good. There are a number of complimentary activities which we enjoyed. There is wildlife although with the amount of construction that has occurred the past decade there certainly appeared to be less monkeys around the resort. Staff were nice although I got the impression not entirely happy - perhaps the four month renovation and uncertainty as to employment was affecting them.
Unfortunately the dining was far from great. I do not expect the Four Seasons (or any hotel) to have f&b pricing similar to the region that they are in, but when I pay a lot for dinner in Hawaii at the FS at least I realize that most dining is expensive in Hawaii. The prices at the restaurants were unreasonably expensive (particularly for Liberia CR), and that can be said more so for the alcohol pricing. The cost of bottles of wine would run a multiple of 5 of that which you might expect to purchase the same bottle in Canada or the US. I recommend purchasing your wine and alcohol at the Liberia airport. I was also not impressed when the waiter on the first night attempted to convince us that we should consider having bottled water (at $10 a bottle) as the water 'may' not be drinkable - I took the 'risk' and we drank the water, it was completely fine.
There was a consistent theme among virtually all of the guests (we spoke with many) that the dining prices were excessive. And the food that we had was not great. We ultimately woke up and started taking the shuttle to the Andaz and regularly dined at their restaurants - which we found better and more reasonably priced.
