Spectacular location across from the Pacific. Grounds are immaculate and staff very attentive. Stayed for a business function and loved it. The concierge arranged for a surfboard to be delivered and took care of anything we asked.

This hotel is a truly special place in a wonderful location. The Four Seasons Biltmore has it all. We had a bungalow which was spacious and perfect for our needs. I had a truly amazing Spa treatment overlooking the Ocean with a real fire in the corner of the room. The hotel bar is quirky and cool and has a...

Very beautiful location and ocean views - restored 1920's property has the charm of that period with all of the modern amenities and quality you would expect from this brand. Everything exceeded our expectations. The spa experience was the best I've ever had anywhere.

Someone should publish a study case on this hotel as an example of Perfect Customer Service. I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting. Shortly after arrival my back started giving me problems. The person opening the cab door had noticed my unusual posture and inquired about it. I had confirmed that my back indeed was giving me problems....

This hotel is too luxury in Spanish / Mexica hacienda style. Located in lush well kept gardens - this feels like a jewel in a jungle. My room was spacious and beautifully decorated in green colours with rich coloured local ceramic art plates and tiles. The beach is just across from the hotel and the hotel has several restaurants on...

We travelled with our kids, the staff were super friendly. The restaurants were great. The food was fresh and delicious. The hotel suite was beautifully laid out, the bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was tiled beautifully, snacks and Nespresso machine were a lovely touch. The wine selection was fantastic. We would absolutely come again, and we could wholeheartedly reccommend.

Spent my birthday with the family here this year, and my only regret is not being able to stay longer. The room was vast for 4 people, and I absolutely adore the bathroom. The grounds were sprawling, with a lot of trees and flowering plants. Butterfly Beach is right outside the hotel, too.
